About one month ago I decided with Dr. Lapinski to replace 3 old crowns. During the past month one old crown was readied for replacement and the new crown was installed yesterday. The procedures were very tollerable - so much more then when done years ago. I'm sure a lot has to do with the technology advancements, but I definitely feel the skill and professionalism of Dr. Lapinski and his staff, particularly Joyce, made the biggest difference. I can't say I'm looking forward to the other crown replacements, but I certainly feel like it's no big deal. By far the best dental office I've dealt with over my 68 years. Kudos to Dr. L and staff.
