CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY: A treatment philosophy - The dental office where Less is More! Less removal of tooth structure, leaves more of the natural tooth intact. Therefore, less anesthetic and restorative material is needed.  Also this decreases the chance that the tooth would require a root canal.  This shortens your time spent in the dental chair, and your fee is considerably lower. Consequently, no unnecessary crowns or root canals are performed.
Patient Review:
I wanted to take a moment and thank you and your staff for the way everyone has helped me keep my teeth. I had considered getting dentures and Dr. Craig said he could fix the problems. Ten years later I still have my teeth (no dentures or partials). Emergency Care, cleaning appointments, Dr. Craig is MY dentist for the rest of my life. I forgot to mention affordability. Fair prices for Great Work.

Dear Dr. Zapp,

I’m sure you get your share of complaints about members of your profession.  Don’t worry. This is not a complaint.

A close family member of mine had some serious dental problems.  She visited a dentist (covered on her insurance plan) who told her to go to an oral surgeon and get all of her teeth pulled.  We decided against this.  She is only 25 years old.

So we went to Dr. Joseph Craig of St. Petersburg, Florida, who was not part of her insurance plan.  Dr. Craig told her not to worry and set up a long-range plan of action and started work.  He had to pull two teeth, but he rebuilt the rest with root canals, crowns and bridges.

We were in his office many times throughout this course of treatment and he was always helpful and sympathetic.  Her teeth are fine now, thanks to Dr. Craig.

I’m sure it is easy for a dentist to start viewing patients as just numbers, but Dr. Craig always treated her with respect.  Now, you’ve got to remember she hates going to the dentist.  That is how her teeth got in bad shape in the first place.

If Dr. Craig wasn’t such a decent human being, she would have never made it through all those hour-long sessions.

So, in closing, I don’t know if the American Dental Association has an All Star Team, but if you do, I nominate Dr. Joseph Craig.  Rest assured, I am not related and my bill is paid in full.  I just wanted to give credit where credit is due.
