Dr. Robert Critchfield and our team members have served Glendale, AZ, and surrounding communities since 1981. We provide gentle dental care, always attentive to each person’s desires.

Here, we understand each person has their own clinical and personal concerns. There is never a “one-treatment-for-all” approach at our practice. Instead, we’ll take time to ask what you want from treatment and work with you to find the approach that meets your needs, improving your dental health and smile!

You Are Important to Us

We firmly believe you deserve the highest quality dentistry and customer care that has you smiling. Dr. Critchfield and our team are experienced professionals. We’re also warm, friendly, and compassionate. We want to get to know you as person, learning about your life and what’s important to you. Our goal is to help you achieve your healthiest smile and build a strong friendship while doing so.

Our practice is different:

Communication: The best dental visits, the strongest results, and the happiest patients all start with communication. We’re here to help you so it’s important we understand your desires and concerns. We promise to always encourage your questions and answer them fully and directly. If you have dental anxiety, please let us know! We’ll listen without judging and strive to make sure you’re informed about everything, proceeding with treatment at a pace where you’re comfortable.

Respect: We promise to treat you with respect and compassion, as we would a family member. We’re responsive and attentive, always respectful of your time and money. We’ll never pressure you into a procedure you don’t want or need. Instead, we’ll help you be part of deciding your treatment approach and we’ll support you as you attain optimal oral health!

Education: The more you know about your oral health, the better you can care for it. We’ll teach you about your mouth, show how to keep it clean between checkups, and encourage you to take control. We’ll also help you learn to make good nutritional decisions and establish healthy habits.

Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your tooth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.

A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite.

A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay.

Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. Your regular exam will take about 45 minutes. Each regular exam includes a detailed teeth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth’s surface.

Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed.

Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, are most often made of silver amalgam. The strength and durability of this traditional dental material makes it useful for situations where restored teeth must withstand extreme forces that result from chewing, often in the back of the mouth.

Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay and in preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface. A fluoride treatment in your dentist’s office takes just a few minutes.

The word periodontal means “around the tooth”. Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Your mouth is filled with bacteria. When bacteria are not disrupted on a regular basis, a plaque, or a sticky film of bacteria, debris and saliva form on the teeth and under the gum line.

Sometimes brushing is not enough, especially when it comes to those hard-to-reach spots in your mouth. It is difficult for your toothbrush to get in-between the small cracks and grooves on your teeth. If left alone, those tiny areas can develop tooth decay. Sealants give your teeth extra protection against decay and help prevent cavities.
