Dr Andrew J Krantz DDS, PC
I have been a dentist for nearly 40 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 of 2015, and i also took over the practice of Dr. Ken Chintellas in June of 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 five 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!
