Even with the COVID pandemic, I was able to get in quickly and my appointment was less than an hour! Dr. Kriss and his dental assistant, his wife, were very professional and polite, while taking all necessary safety precautions to ensure their protection as well as my own. Highly recommend!

After not having been to a dentist for years I was so nervous to finally go again, and to a new one at that. Dr. Kriss was recommended by some friends and I’m so glad! I’ve had three visits in the last couple months for cleanings and fillings and I’ve never felt more comfortable in the dental chair. And it feels like everyone just knows me! I appreciate being walked through every step, I really value that.

I have always been in and out of dental offices, my entire life since I was very little. I had very crooked teeth and then two of my teeth were infected and I was hospitalized. Needless to say, they had to be extracted. While I had my braces, the orthodontist were able to place “fake” ones and attach them to my braces but, once my braces were removed since the teeth are anterior ones, I went to Dr. Kriss’s Office for a partial. I was referred to him by my orthodontist and I am extremely happy I went there. Dr. Kriss was amazing at explaining things to me. He told me I would benefit from implants but, worked with me to make a partial denture because, I could not afford implants at the time. I still have the partial denture to this day and it is treating me good:) I also became a dental assistant after gaining an interest in the dental world from learning so much throughout the years and always thought of how amazing it would be to work for Dr. Kriss. I actually worked 3 yrs. at the dental office, at the health center in Eureka and then had my son and could no longer work there. 1 yr. after I was told by my friend Dr. Kriss was looking for a temporary assistant, while his left for Maternity leave. I took the offer as, it was around October and some extra Christmas money would do no harm. I can now say Dr. Kriss is an amazing dentist to have AND to work for. He truly loves and has a passion for helping others! He is not in it for the $. He actually loves helping others and is always very respectful and understanding of everyone’s different situations. Working for him was so amazing and I actually looked forward to going in everyday! Obviously, having never worked for him before made me nervous to mess up but, he was patient and never got mad. He always helped me learn how and why. I now go in to cover if needed and feel blessed to not only have reached a dream of mine but, to have met Dr. Kriss, his wife and the amazing staff that are always so upbeat and positive. I consider them family and I always recommend everyone go to him. You will not be disappointed! ❤️

I am a the Site Coordinator for Communities in Schools at Logan Avenue. I have a student who needed to see the dentist. More importantly this students had some major past trauma from an experience with a dentist when he was younger. HE was terrified to go back to the dentist. Just talking about it he would cry and talk about how anxious he was. Dr. Kriss and Michelle and thier team were AMAZING. They were patient with this student, talking with him and reassuring him that he was safe. They let him know everything that was going to happen before it happened and even let him touch the tools. He felt safe and was so excited by the end of his visit. He came back to school and told everyone how AMAZING everyone at Dr. Kriss' office was. HE said they are PROFESSIONALS. As someone that works with him I was so proud of him and proud to know that we have such great dentist that are patient and kind. THANK YOU Dr. Kriss and your TEAM! This kiddo will gladly come back to your office!

Dr. Kriss explained everything as he was doing my filling and explained the reasoning for why he was choosing the type of mouth guard for me. Very informative and wonderful people!
- Jordan Williams. 1/25/2020
Dr. Kriss is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and his staff is all amazing! My only complaint is I can’t give them six stars!
- Thomas Felts. 1/25/2020
Dr Kriss has been my dentist for a couple of decades now. For most of my life I had a real phobia when it came to dentistry. Even just getting my teeth cleaned had me sweating in the chair!
When I first began going to Dr Kriss, I kept waiting for the pain that I was certain I'd feel. But after all these years, and all my visits to his office, during which I've had root canals done, crown work done, and most recently an extraction and bridgework completed, I can honestly say I have NEVER felt any pain whatsoever! Even the injections of lidocaine have been pain-free!
Dr Kriss is an excellent dentist and at the top of his game! He personalizes the care he gives his patients, and it's obvious he measures success by the satisfaction of each patient. If you are looking for a great dentist, I highly recommend Dr Kriss.
And if you're really lucky, he just might play the ukelele for you! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Kriss for years. He and his staff are friendly and do great work. I never have to wait. I highly recommend his office - I actually enjoy going to the dentist.
- Rand Simmons. 10/26/2019
The first thing I noticed when I walked in was how tastefully the office is decorated. The operatory is no less impressive. I was awed by the array of high technology that dazzled my eyes. The most amazing aspect of my dental experience was the dentist himself. I’ve been afraid of dental procedures my entire life. Dr. Kriss put me at ease, immediately. He’s gentle. He explains what he’s doing as it’s happening. He goes about his work skillfully. He’s a delight ! He offers options. I’ll never go anywhere else.
- Gloria Kemper. 10/12/2019
I went in for a cavity and it turns out I just have a sensitive tooth. But Dr. Kriss took the time to go over every X-ray and the pictures of all my teeth. I’ve never learned so much about my mouth or had a dentist that cared enough to teach me. The staff was so welcoming and sweet as can be. As a new patient, I could not have asked for a better experience!!!
- Jennifer Taylor. 9/30/2019
Dr. Kriss is genuinely dedicated to providing excellent care and affordable services!!!
- Tayler James. 9/11/2019
Dr Kriss is extremely gentle, thorough, and does amazing dental work! He really takes his time to listen to your needs, and even takes photos of your teeth so you can see before, during, and after procedures. He is wonderful with kids as well! I recommend him to everyone I come across that is needing quality dental care by a caring dentist. TEAM KRISS ROCKS! 😁
- Jessica Elaine. 9/5/2019
I drive from out of town because Dr. Kriss is such a great dentist!
- Fawna Fancher. 8/19/2019
Dr. Kriss has been caring for my elderly mother’s dental needs for years, always going above and beyond for her.
Thank you being there to provide my Mom with such thoughtful and caring dental care. I’m grateful to your devotion to her as both a patient and as a person.

- Joanna Earl. 8/17/2019
Since I tell everyone about how awesome Dr Kriss is it makes since to stop and write a review. There is no doubt I would drive quite a distance to have him as my dentist!
Dental pain as I knew it didn’t exist in the hands of Dr Kriss.
Thanks for doing such a super job and caring about your patients!
- Deb Ellis. 8/17/2019
So speedy and painless. I have been afraid of the dentist for decades and had an extraction and filling. Everyone was very careful to be sure I was comfortable and not afraid. They also carefully checked with my insurance first to get me a breakdown of cost in advance so there would be no financial surprises either.
- Candie Ethetton. 8/17/2019
Dr. Kriss is very good at explaining what procedures need to be done, options or alternatives and fees. He and his staff are kind, compassionate, and in business to provide necessary dental care. I’ve always felt valued as a patient.
- Judy Arends. 8/12/2019
I began having horrible tooth pain in the middle of the night. I called first thing in the morning and they had me in the exam chair by 8 am. I had a cracked tooth that required a root canal. I had never had one but was nervous just by the name of the procedure. Dr. Kriss did such a good job that it honestly wasnt much different than getting a filling..... just took a bit longer. I would highly recommend.
- Kelly Maxfield. 8/12/2019
Our daughter had a terrible toothache while my husband and I were on vacation. We called Dr. Kriss and he did a pulpectomy the next day, talking us through the whole thing on the phone since we couldn't be there. Our 9 year old went in crying in pain and walked out smiling and in awe because "she didn't feel a thing!" She wanted her big brother to go have the same thing done just to prove Dr. Tom could give him a shot and he wouldn't even know.
His whole staff is kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. We enjoy our visits!
- Laci Rusco. 8/12/2019
I had sensitivity in an old filling, 4 different fillings actually and Dr. Kriss replaced them. During the injections I did not feel a thing and afterwards the fillings were polished so smooth, and all sensitivity was gone! The overall experience was GREAT! The office was a comfortable environment and the staff was friendly!
- Dr. Thomas A. Kriss DDS. 8/12/2019
Awesome dentist I would highly recommend him!
- Dan McCoy. 8/11/2019
Had my first root canal at age 46. Dr Kriss took his time to make sure I was well numbed before starting and kept checking to see if I had any pain during the procedure which I did not. He and his staff are always friendly and professional. I’ve been seeing this group for over 10 years and have been very satisfied with my care there
- Tonja Davis. 8/11/2019
I have been going to Dr. Kriss for 15 years. Dr. Kriss is a great dentist that is always looking out for your best interest. He is a great communicator that takes the time to explain what is going on with your teeth and what needs to be done to make them better. I would highly recommend Dr. Kriss to anyone who needs a great dentist.
- Kent Clodfelter. 8/11/2019
Dr Kriss is awesome, he is conservative in his approach, which saved me from getting a crown. Highly recommend!
- Brenna Mercer. 8/11/2019
Dr. Kriss and his staff are very gentle, kind and thorough. My cleanings and any work that I have needed done have been painless and easy. As someone who has a fear of dental work in general, I feel completely comfortable having my work done in this office. I highly recommend their office!
- Sonja Hodges. 8/11/2019
