★★★★★ Daughter’s periodontal work is perfect
February 12th, 2012
“When my daughter, Emily, needed periodontal treatment, I was delighted to have been referred by our dentist to a woman periodontist. What a great role model for my 14 year old daughter. Dr Crosby exceeded our expectations not only with her professionalism but her way of making my daughter feel very comfortable and alleviating any fears about her treatment. The staff provided an IPod for her to use during the procedure which also made the whole procedure a pleasant experience. My daughter finished her care wishing she could come back again!! Thanks Dr. Crosby and staff!!”

★★★★★ Best experience at a dental office ever!
December 9th, 2011
“My treatment at Dr. Crosby’s office was the best experience I have ever had at a medical dental office. I felt very well cared for and everyone working there is happy. Dr. Crosby was so caring, she even called at home the night of my treatment! I waited till I was past 18 to pursue this procedure and I feel it was the best decision I could have made. I love my smile!”
