Dr Andrew J Krantz DDS, PC

I have been a dentist for over 30 years, having graduated from  West Virginia School of Dentistry in 1982.

It was an honor for me to serve as a dentist in the US Navy, where I was stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station, Cherry Point , NC .

I entered private practice in western Pennsylvania and had two dental offices there for twenty five years.

 I felt a calling to Tribal Dentistry and left private practice to work on American Indian Reservations with the Indian Health Service in Michigan, New York and Montana.

Deciding to re enter private practice, and wanting to be back home in Pennsylvainia, we were blessed to have found Philipsburg to be our new home. I took over the practice of Dr. Anthony Piniuk in June fo 2015, and i also took over the practice of Dr. Ken Chintells in June 2017.

My wife Linda and I are excited to be members of the community here. We reside in Drifting , with our two dogs Rockford and Abbee. We have four grown children and four grandchildren that are the joy of our lives.

We hope you will allow our office to help you with your dental needs. All of us here at Philipsburg Dental Partners look forward to meeting you!

I have over eight years experience as a dental assistant. I work as a dental assistant as well as coordinating things throughout the office from answering the phone to the technical things as well as treatment plans with our paitents one on one.

Working with the team in our practice for me is like working with my family. I think as a team we bring our patients the best care we can. That above all is most important to us here.
