Patient Reviews

“First time here for dental cleaning & x-rays. Staff friendly & helpful to me. Also, noticed interaction with other patients, particularly older patients, friendly & helpful. Hygienist did a great job on cleaning. Has been with Dr Black for 10+ years which says something about work atmosphere. Dr Black did my checkup and told me I was good for another 6 months, no fillings or anything needed. Dentist last year recommended fillings, bonding, crowns for several teeth. Hygienist said Dr Black doesn’t recommend any additional work unless it’s necessary. I was in & out in a hour. Definitely the place to go for any dental procedure.”

“Dr. Crawford is by far one of the most talented dentists I have encountered. My visits are LITERALLY pain free, they fit me in immediately if I have an emergency, PLUS they offer appointments after 5:00 pm! (If that wasn’t enough, Dr. Crawford even fixed my lock-jaw caused by another dentist!). Everyone from the front staff to the hygienists are incredibly nice. You couldn’t ask for a better place to go.”

“I came in because I was in major pain due to an exposed nerve. I was initially examined and told my options. I chose to get an extraction. The entire extraction went excellent. From start to finish, it was as easy as laying back and enjoying the view. I have just fully healed from my stitches and am enjoying the pain free life I have forgotten about after three long years of “dealing with it”. Thank you for your excellent care and time St Dental Center. I am finally pain free and happy!”

“Had a painful tooth Friday afternoon, called St. Pete Dental Center and had an appointment For Saturday, the very next day. This was my first visit and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Had to get the tooth pulled which was also a first time for me. The woman working at the front desk was very comforting, as well as the dentist. I would highly recommend this dental office and will use them from now on, as this has been my best experience yet.”
-Matthew S.

“Quoting my Mom, Alice, who visited with Dr. Crawford, “It was a very positive experience and I appreciated the care and concern exhibited by every member of the staff. Jacquie was very thorough and did a great job on my cleaning. Dee is an angel. She was very kind and considerate. First time I ever booked another appointment with a dentist right then and there. Can’t wait to go back!” Thank you all.”

“All I can say is WOW!!!! What a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!! All the staff at SPDC were VERY POLITE & COURTEOUS!!!! There professionalism was second to none as well. I have never walked out of a dentist office feeling so good!!!! So glad my wife & I made the best decision to come to SPDC!!!!”

“As a child I was not taught good dental hygiene habits and therefore had lots of dental problems my whole adult life. Accordingly, I’ve avoided dentists all my life as much as possible. Mostly because they and their staffs seemed judgmental and condescending.

Thank God I lucked into St Pete Dental Center!!

Dr. Crawford and his assistant Dee were the best and most professional I have experienced in any dental office. They made me feel welcome and not embarrassed of the condition of my teeth. I won’t go into detail, but suffice it to say that for the first time in my life I actually feel proud of my smile and am not afraid to go back for check-ups regularly.

I have never written a review of any business before, but I really would recommend these guys to anyone who needs dental work and has not had positive experiences in the past.”
-James A.

“Love this Dentist! The Hygienists and Dentists are great, never condescending, and showing genuine concern if there is even the hint of pain. Also, the desk and billing staff are exceptional. I had a problem with how insurance interpreted a billing code (I truly believe it was an issue with my insurance company), but instead of forcing me to fight the charge, St. Pete Dental wrote off the charge so I didn’t have to deal with it. Now that is great service!”

“Nobody likes going to the dentist…including me. However; going to see Dr. Crawford and Dee at St. Pete Dental Center is always a pleasure because they are professional and very compassionate. Recently I needed to have impressions done and they couldn’t have been more concerned that I was gagging and immediately stopped the procedure and waited while I gathered myself. Then we proceeded and with their help, I was able to complete the process. I highly recommend Dr. Crawford and St. Pete Dental Center.”

“I will NEVER go to another dentist. I went to spd for emergency broken front tooth I was in and out in a half hour and NO pain. Dr Black is da best. A true caring dentist and not half salesman like some are. Office staff is great also. Only problem. Dr. B is a Steelers fan. Lol. GO FINS!”
-Lisa W.

“I’ve been going to Dr. B at the Feather Sound office for many years. He is efficient and to the point. I’ve been going to Irene, my dental hygienist, for several years now as well and she is amazing. I barely, if at all, have to sit in the waiting room. She is pleasant is always concerned with how I’m doing during my visit. I’ve referred many friends and coworkers and will continue to do so. Awesome group!!”
-Robert M.

“Excellent dentist office! They are so flexible when I bring my newborn in with me the last few times – my dentist even fed her while the hygienist was with me! Would recommend to anyone! Great service and great office!”
-Amanda L.

“Services at St Pete Dental Center (SPDC) are among the best ever. I’ve received services at SPDC for over 25 years! I live in the north Tampa area, but don’t mind driving to SPDC for dental services. It has been quite difficult finding a dentist in the Tampa area that matches services received at SPDC. After my regular dentist retired, (Dr. K.), his partner Dr. R. has been just as great. I really appreciate how the dentists will walk you thru each process and let you know what to expect next. I’ve always felt that my opinion counts, and that I play an important role in any procedure needed. The dentist and hygienists always listen and give you a chance to ask questions. The staff from the front desk to the back office are always friendly and ready to assist. A special shout out to Kristina, she does a great job keeping you abreast of dental coverage and costs. Having the two locations provides great options for my family and I. Thank you St Pete Dental Center for your excellent services.”
