By choosing St. Petersburg Periodontist, Dr. Crawford for your periodontal treatment, you are opting for an oral health solution that provides all of the latest advancements in modern periodontal technology. During your initial exam, we utilize faster diagnostic equipment, including Cone Beam 3D Imaging and digital x-rays, that quickly and efficiently produce images of the inside of your mouth. With these images, Dr. Crawford will be able to determine the best course of action for your periodontal treatment process, whether it be dental implants, gum recession treatment or laser gum therapy. With the state-of-the-art technology and less invasive treatment options available at Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics, you can have a healthier smile in no time!
With our living room style reception area, convenient digital x-rays, and comforting accommodations during treatment, we seek to go above and beyond the typical periodontal office in the St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay areas of Florida (FL). We know periodontal treatment isn’t an easy choice, so we want you to feel at ease during your appointment. Our special comfort menu allows you to choose what might help during your treatment process, including massaging dental chairs, Bose noise-canceling headphones, relaxing music, blankets, tea or water. At Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics, we care about our patients, and we want you to have a positive experience while we help you restore and maintain a smile you can feel good about.
At Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics, we work with you to develop a specialized periodontal treatment plan for your specific oral health concerns. During your initial appointment, Dr. Crawford will listen as you describe your symptoms, and ask you some simple questions regarding your health and medical history. The information you provide will help us suggest appropriate treatment solutions, and together we can select the option you feel most comfortable with. With our advanced oral camera at Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics, we can show you the condition of your teeth rather than just tell you, as most dentists commonly do. Our motto is to “Inform Before We Perform.” You are a vital part of your treatment process, and the Crawford team aims to work alongside you to help you achieve a healthier mouth for a healthier life.
With 10,000+ patients helped throughout Florida over the past 25 years, Dr. Crawford and the team at Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics have the experience and expertise to truly change your smile. Our periodontal team participates in regular, ongoing training more than any other periodontal practice in the St. Petersburg, FL area! Our goal is to keep up with the latest technology and periodontal procedures, so we can provide you with the most effective periodontal treatment available for the best results!
At Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics, we want to make your treatment process as smooth and as comfortable as possible. Our helpful periodontal team will file claims for you if you have dental insurance, so you don’t have to stress. We will also handle any follow-ups or appeals as needed. Your insurance coverage determines the amount that will be paid. We are happy to do what we can to help you make the best use of your insurance benefits. At all times, you can be confident that we will always provide you with our best services without regard to the limitations imposed by your insurance coverage. That is our commitment to you as our patient.
When it comes to your periodontal treatment, cost should never be a barrier.

These payment options include check, cash, or credit card. We accept all major credit cards, including MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We also offer a convenient Care Credit Finance Plan, which allows you to afford your periodontal treatment with low monthly payments.
