Going Above And Beyond To Provide Outstanding Dental Care


First Visit &
Office Tour



We love being apart of our community and strive to do our best to give back. We are always looking for ways to help our community out, whether it’s sponsoring our local teams, or putting on community events.

Nacogdoches Pediatric Dentistry teams up with Operation Gratitude every year to take unopened candy and send it to our troops overseas. Dr. Criss will buy back children’s Halloween candy for $1 per pound for up to 2o pounds! During this event Dr. Criss and the Zoo Crew hosts a free movie and fun activities in the park for families in the area to enjoy.
