"I can’t recommend this group of amazing healthcare professionals enough! The office is beautiful and clean. Julie, Fergie & Brandon at the front desk always made sure to make me feel comfortable and informed. Little things like Chantel always making sure my lips had chapstick on them while I had the retractors in as Dr. K worked his magic, to staff members remembering small details about my work and personal life, really made me feel like I wasn’t just any old patient. The team there fixed a tooth I had been so insecure about after an injury I sustained and I can truly say, they changed my life! If you’re looking for A+ service and amazing dentistry...look no further!!! I love you guys!!!" - Kelly Botteri

"I am so happy to be a patient of West End Dental and Dr. Jim. After an awful experience at a large chain dentist I decided to walk away and look for other options. My good friend always raved about her dentist and recommended I try West End Dental and I am so glad that I did. In the last six months I have had a crown placed, my wisdom teeth removed and a routine cleaning. Every experience being overwhelmingly positive due to WED's amazing staff. They go our of their way to make sure you are comfortable, reassured and that every procedure or cleaning is pain free. I love Dr. Jim and the entire West End Dental team and I would recommend them to everyone." - Kati Tennant

icon quotes

"West End Dental and Dr. Krippaehne have been my go-to for many years now. Their front office is extremely professional, letting me know any changes with my insurance coverage or providing estimates for work. The office has been remodeled to minimize Covid risk. My appt this week felt safe from start to finish. I wasn't a huge fan of going to the dentist before seeing Dr. Krippaehne at West End. He's done a significant amount of work for me and it's always top-notch." ~Matthew B.
