Doctor Crawford is the master of cosmetic dentistry. He has transformed my collapsing and worn bite, potholed, chipped and faceted teeth into near perfection. With veneers and crowns (eighteen teeth in all) he skillfully crafted my entire upper arch and most of my lower teeth to create outstanding function that I have never experienced before. Thanks to Doctor Crawford’s gentle hand, I smile more easily and I could not be more satisfied with my beautiful new teeth.

First of all, you are the first dentist I ever liked, much less trusted.
You are very respectful. You don’t make disparaging comments about my high anxiety. You accept and understand it. You even cover me with a blanket so I’m not freezing. You also show respect when you allow for plenty of time during a consultation, performing the procedure and follow up. You are always calm and at ease – not rushed or hurried.
You take advantage of technology – which is how you built trust with me. Because I can see what you are talking about via the video camera/TV. I can understand what you are telling me, and I am reassured that you are not trying to talk me into something I might not need.
You are accountable and you act as a team with your colleagues. When my root canal wouldn’t heal for months, you and Dr. Sturm patiently stood by me, assuring me that you would resolve the problem. I felt safe, because neither of you ever pointed the finger at the other.
You are creative and a perfectionist. The veneers you made for my four top front teeth are really beautiful. They are “real” vs. “fake”. You artistically and carefully designed realistic imperfections and a found the perfect color. Unless I brag about my new teeth, there is no way anyone would know that I had them done.
And finally, I’m grateful that you are much younger than I am, and have invested in your new office. This means you’re not going anywhere soon, so I’ll have you around for a long time.

I was embarrassed to laugh & smile for years because of dental fluorosis, and Dr. Crawford helped change that with porcelain veneers. I talked with other dentists who were ready to just throw some veneers on without thinking, but Dr. Crawford took the time to carefully design and restore my smile, which in return restored my confidence. The process was very easy from beginning to end, and he is truly the best at what he does. Thanks again for everything!

Please feel free to share this testimonial with any of Dr. Crawford’s patients who are considering the purchase of a mouthpiece to work with their sleep apnea.
As you know my case was a medium version. My apnea got to the point where I was constantly feeling tired at around 2pm. I could not get up in the morning, I was constantly hitting snooze on my alarm clock. I had not had a vivid dream in several years. On the first night that I wore the appliance I went to bed at my usual time 10pm, I woke up wide awake at 2am. I looked at the clock and thought something was wrong, I had only been asleep for 4 hours. I got up went to the kitchen, still thinking something was wrong, the clock in there said 2am as well. Now I knew, I had only gotten 4 hours of sleep, but since it was such GREAT DEEP SLEEP my body was fully energized. Before the appliance my apnea had made me fight for 8 hours to get that 4 hours of deep sleep. With the device I was now getting that sleep as soon as I went to bed. No more waking up sweating because I had been working out trying to breath, while trying to sleep. Sometimes I would wake up and my entire neck would be drenched with sweat, this was from fighting to breath. The next night was better I slept for 6 hours, and had incredibly vivid dreams of cycling, one of my weekend hobbies, up gibraltar then flying back down the road.I would strongly recommend anyone to pursue getting an oral appliance if you suffer from sleep apnea. You can go online and read what suffering from sleep apnea will do to your lifespan and how miserable it can make your spouse.
Dr. Crawford’s team handled my entire process for me. They made the appointments and arranged for the at home sleep test to be administered and worked thru the very cumbersome process with my insurance provider.
I would highly recommend Dr Crawford and his team if you suffer from sleep apnea. My experience was simple and professional and I am now enjoying sleep like experienced when I was a little boy.

I had neglected my dental care for many years and thought my dental problems were beyond the point of no return. I consulted with Dr. Crawford because I heard that he was well versed in the latest advancements in dental care. This was the first of several consultations I had with him where he explained the options that I could take to remedy my dental problems which at this point were negatively impacting my overall health.
I decided to go with dental implant option with veneers on my remaining teeth that could be saved. He set up a series of dental procedures over a period of one year and explained to me step by step what would be done and also how much it would cost me (so there were no surprises). He referred me to the top dental surgeons in town and I found out that his colleagues also held him in great esteem. I knew at that point that I was being cared for by the best! My dental procedures were successful.
I got eight dental implants, bridgework, and beautiful gleaming veneers. I have had absolutely no complications from the procedures and my overall health is much improved as a result of this care I received.

I am writing regarding Dr. Paul Crawford and his wonderful staff.
As a woman who has been terribly frighten of dentist since childhood, I can not say enough about Dr. Paul Crawford. The moment I walked into his beautiful office, greeted by Sloane at the front desk, introduced to Sandra his dental assistant, both women made me feel extremely comfortable and safe. Dr. Crawford walked in with a warm smile that filled me with confidence. He throughly explained his dental philosophy and involved me in the process of what was needed and why; listening to my questions and answering each of them, I knew this was someone I could trust. I had extensive dental work and would not have gone through it with anyone else. I was called personally by Dr. Crawford to check to see if I had any discomfort after each visit.
The quality of care I received was stellar and I can not recommend him and his staff enough.

I postponed my dental restoration work for several years, and now I wish I had gone ahead much sooner. The results are great!

I highly recommend Dr. Paul Crawford. He is very thorough in his examinations and procedures. He takes the time explain his findings, offer different options of care, and gives his advise on the best course of action for my long term dental care. He put in a temporary crown for me recently and performed the procedure meticulously with great care. When I returned to get the permanent crown, it came to Dr. Crawford’s attention that the color was a little off and he decided to remove it and return it to the lab. I was very impressed with his dedication to deliver only first rate service.
