I have been treated by Dr. Cronin and her staff for over a year now, and I have had nothing but great experiences. The whole office is friendly and caring (Becca, Janann, and Heather are great!), and they do a great job of informing and explaining while they work. Dr. Cronin is very proactive, and does a great job advising on how to keep your teeth healthy. I have recommended this practice to my friends, and have nothing but positive things to say.

The is is the most amazing team! From the moment you walk in, you are surrounded by kind, compassionate, caring folks. Dr. Cronin and her team take the time to make sure you fully understand the procedures and are comfortable. Plus! Wilson the therapy dog will happily snooze on your lap and keep you company. I can’t rave enough about Rittenhouse Smiles!

Dr. Cronin and staff are amazing! She’s been our family dentist for years. I had an accident that required intensive dental restoration. Dr. Cronin provided me with wonderful care and great results! I highly recommend this practice!

Jessica G. from North Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This is my first yelp review, but I felt compelled to leave one after my third visit today. I have extreme dental anxiety, following an experience where the dentist refused to let me become numb during a filling and told me “cry if you want to, we’re going to finish”, while instructing his hygienist to hold my shoulders. It took years to get the courage to go into a new dentist and, after researching gentle dentistry, I found Rittenhouse Smiles. From the second I walked in, I felt completely at ease. Shalu, at the front desk, is wonderful and I love that she texts! In addition to feeling anxious, I was ashamed and embarrassed that I had gone so long without getting my teeth cleaned/taken care of. But Janann, Jillian, Dr. Cronin, and the entire staff quelled my fears without an ounce of judgement. Before my first filling appointment, I was given a prescription for a low dose anti-anxiety medication. That coupled with a glass of wine, (I was off work & not driving), & noise-cancelling headphones with a great pandora station, my appointment was a dream! I honestly felt like crying afterwards. It was just so wonderful to feel heard and cared about. Rittenhouse Smiles has a patient for life in me! If you have dental anxiety, I promise this is the place for you.

Ever since we found Dr Cronin at a street fair during Philly PRIDE, we have been so impressed with the services, care, and professionalism of the medical staff. Dr Cronin is efficient and always puts the patient in control. The staff are friendly and know who you are every time you walk in the door. They work with your insurance company and make accommodations where they can. I recommend Dr Cronin to everyone I know in Philly.

Karen K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This office has the nicest staff ever!  Shawn is so warm and encouraging, and the dentists and hygienists are willing to explain what they are doing. Dr. Cronin asked me if I was the kind of patient who wanted her to narrate what she was doing, or if I wanted to put on headphones and tune it all out. She can accommodate either preference. They don’t do unnecessary work and always tell you the estimated cost beforehand.

Caitlin F. from Media, PA (Source: Yelp)


Best. Dentist. Ever. Jillian is just about the warmest dental hygienist you could ever hope for. So down to earth and understanding. Dr Cronin is as lovely as she is knowledgeable. I have ENJOYED my appointments thus far (something I have never been able to say about my dentist in the past!!) Cannot recommend highly enough! Personable, welcoming environment paired with a staff who knows what they are doing. What more do you need?!

In my profession as an orthodontist, I have the opportunity to work with many general dentists for collaborative treatment with our mutual patients. I would like to say that Dr Cronin is one of the most compassionate practitioners I have the pleasure of working with. She earnestly cares about the well-being and comfort of her patients and has the clinical expertise to give them first quality dentistry to ensure they have optimum oral health!

Unless you go to Rittenhouse Smiles, you won’t know what it’s like to experience no pain at a dentist. The staff, professional, kind, personable. The office, bright, clean. Dr. Cronin, excellent. I had a mouth full of cavities, I did not take care of my mouth or teeth. Dr. Cronin saved my entire mouth and teeth! Dr. Z, wonderful. Jill the dental tech, amazing! I now happily go in for cleanings. My teeth are great! It is a positive experience now going to the dentist, well, going to Rittenhouse Smiles, thank you Dr. Cronin & Staff!

Michael A. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Andrea Cronin has a wonderful bedside manner! She is very caring and thorough, and is extremely collaborative with other doctors who may be taking care of you. For those who have a phobia of dental work, Dr. Cronin is excellent at making the experience painless and anxiety free.

From the second you walk through the door, you sense something is different! A vibrant, warm, welcoming and comforting feeling immediately comes over you. I was greeted by a friendly, smiling office receptionist who helped me navigate my insurance needs, she was very knowledgeable and made this process very easy. I was impressed that I was immediately taken back for my treatment, honestly, it’s the first time visiting a doctors office that I sensed they had an appreciation for my time and schedule. My dental hygienist Jill, took the time to educate me while cleaning my teeth and was very gentle. I loved the warm colors of the treatment room & certainly the large windows framing the Philadelphia skyline, helped relax any anxiety I had. I later returned for a filling, Dr. Cronin & her assisant were wonderful. They educated me on my dental procedure and what was going to take place. The process was very fast, comfortable and most important, painless. I did require an additional procedure that required a specialist…… Dr. Cronin immediately was able to text another doctor & schedule me that needed appointment a day later. WHAT REALLY SURPRISED ME…..was the follow up call I later received that evening from Dr. Cronin, she called to check on my procedure and make sure I had no complications or discomfort…..wow when does that ever happen anymore!?!!?? Rittenhouse Smiles CARES, listens and provided me the medical support from top to bottom that I needed. I look forward to a long and loyal relationship with my new found friends:) PS – when is the last time you arrive to a lobby featuring candles, free coffee and WINE if you’d like. My treatment room housed a TV with my name on it welcoming me that day. I was offered Bose headphones containing music of my choice. My experience ended with a HOT, Lavender towel treatment…….for a minute I thought I was finishing a spa day or dinner at the Capital Grill…..nice touch ladies:)

I have had many dentists across the country during my decades and couldn’t be happier to have had such a devoted, competent up to date dentist as Dr. Andrea Cronin referred to me by a good friend. She and her competent personable professional team are the best I have experienced. It feels good knowing that I am now in the best hands and look forward to my visits!

Caitlin Dwyer (Source: Google)


I initially came to this office for an acute concern. I hadn’t yet established care in the city, and Rittenhouse Smiles was able to fit me in quickly despite not seeing me before. Dr. Cronin and her entire staff went out of their way to ensure I felt welcomed and comfortable. They addressed my acute concern with a competency and skill that impressed me, so I decided to stay with them for ongoing care. Thank you all!

Rittenhouse Smiles is THE best dentist you can find in Philadelphia. I stumbled upon them through my insurance website and ask myself every day how I got so lucky. Each team member works hard to ensure you feel safe and comfortable throughout the entire experience including Dr. Cronin. Dr. Cronin called me around 10PM the night I had a cap replaced just to see how I was doing. I usually can’t even get my teeth cleaned without laughing gas to calm me down but, I don’t even need it here. The service here is UNMATCHED! Please check them out!

Like a 5 star treatment. The clean lobby, The professional staff behind the reception desk, the amazing dental technicians and the amazing Dr. Cronin and Dr. Z. Ok, Google won’t let me sign in again. So I’ll post here. Special shout out to Shauniece for holding my hand. This office is so comforting. Though I then remember, there’s no pain here. Uber was acting up, but the office kindly still scheduled me in! Dr. Z removed my old cavity, and then, it was done! The care taken is exceptional. The warmth, you are family here. Shauniece is so sweet, this staff remembers you, I’m so lucky and blessed here. Ive done other reviews, but signing my name here -Helen

I am SO happy I chose Rittenhouse Smiles to be my new home for dental care. The atmosphere is cool and eclectic—a refreshing change from the sterile environment you usually find in most dental offices. The staff is ahhhmazing; they’re all friendly and make you feel at home. And Dr. Cronin is wonderful. She’s down to earth and takes the time to explain everything. She even brings her lap dog, Wilson, into the office on occasion and it’s the sweetest thing, really making the office feel homey. I love it there.

Andrea Kyan (Source: Google)


The best dentist experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Cronin and her team live up to the great reviews Wonderful service, wonderful care, and an efficient practice. She will do what’s best for you, and her dog Wilson is a wonderful bonus! Best part: they do not ask you to leave a Google review. A lot of these practices where the reviews are very high, I later find out it’s because the practices are actively asking you to leave a review. Not in this case and they deserve it!

I have been going here for over a year and I could not be happier with my experience with Rittenhouse Smiles. Dr. Cronin, Dr. Z and the entire staff are beyond friendly and are the most accommodating group I know. As a young professional it can be difficult to schedule appointments, but with Rittenhouse Smiles I have found that scheduling my appointments is easy. In addition to the service, the actual dental service is fantastic. I have been going for my semi-annual cleanings and it is always a pleasure to see them and get work done. I have had a few cavities filled and the process was as smooth as it could be. The folks here are always available and will help in anyway they can to make sure you are doing well and have all your questions/concerns answered. I recommend Rittenhouse Smiles to all my colleagues/friends.

Dr. Cronin and her staff are the most compassionate people I have ever met! They make you feel comfortable from the second you come in the door. I have had tons of horrible dental encounters, but not here! They listen to you and address every issue you have. I absolutely love what they have helped me accomplish with my teeth. I highly recommend this office to anyone, especially those of us who have fear of seeing a dentist!

Audree D. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Rittenhouse Smiles. Dr. Cronin was not only very professional she had a very calming and kind demeanor with me. I tend to be very nervous at the dentist office. Dr. Cronin eased my fears and concerns. She helped me and let me in the right direction with all of the dental work that I need done.  The office staff was very nice and helpful. They all have wonderful smiles. The office this is also very beautiful you sit in the dentist chair and you overlook the skyline of Philadelphia.  I’ve never been to a dentist office where the views were so extraordinary. I felt that I got Great advice and a very honest opinion from Dr. Cronin. It was a great experience!

Michael B. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I get nervous going to the dentist in normal times. With COVID on top of that, getting my teeth checked out wasn’t high on the list of things I wanted to do. But the dental hygienist, Jillian, was so friendly and welcoming. I immediately felt at ease. Talking to her was like talking to a friend. And that makes a big difference (especially when someone is sticking metal in your mouth)! Dr. Cronin is also super nice. She and the staff take COVID safety and cleaning measures really seriously. You’ll be in good hands here.

Very professional and friendly staff that made going to the dentist a breeze! Really appreciated the level of expertise and guidance from both the dentist and my amazing hygienist Jill. Looking forward to my next visit in 6 months! Already made recommendations to friends and family! Thanks Rittenhouse Smiles you are all wonderful!

I have been to multiple different dentist offices in Philadelphia, but I wish I found Rittenhouse Smiles sooner. Everyone in their office is very professional, personable and thoughtful. Their office is also very clean and has a great location in center city. I highly recommend Rittenhouse Smiles to anyone in search of a new dentist. 10/10

Dr. Cronin and her staff take every precaution available to make sure that both staff and patients remain safe at this unsettling time. They are always friendly and reassuring making even dental- phobes like me feel so much better. Dr. Cronin is an amazing practitioner and I have always been impressed by her attention to detail. Thank you Rittenhouse Smiles!!!

Hina K. from Wasilla, AK (Source: Yelp)


From the moment I walked through the door I felt welcomed. The mood was relaxing and Karen was very pleasant…….AND she one-upped my previous dental experiences with the offering of wine!!! Next up was their Dental Assistant, Janann. She was super chill, down to earth, and I almost forgot I was going to get dental work done (not a fan of dental work haha). Last up was Dr. Cronin. She did my cleaning because their dental hygienist was on leave. She was just like the rest of her staff; fun, genuine, and welcoming. When it came to my check up, Dr. Cronin took the time to explain what she was going to do, and walked me along the process. She took images of specific areas so she could give me a visual of what she was referring to. Overall, I highly recommend Rittenhouse Smiles. I’m from Hawaii and Alaska, and this is my dentist of choice!

Jenny T. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cronin and her staff are absolutely wonderful. They are welcoming and put you at ease if dental work makes you nervous. Dr Cronin is an exceptional dentist and I highly recommend her skills. She is thoughtful and has your best interests in mind. I’ve had a few bad experiences in the past with dentists and I’m happy to have found her and the staff at Rittenhouse Smiles. Highly recommend.

Patrick M. from Berlin Charter Township, MI (Source: Yelp)


This is review is loooooong overdue…. I am not sure I can ever express how thankful I am to have found Dr. Cronin and her team at Rittenhouse smiles. Candidly, I had a fear of going to the dentist. Literally, a legitimate phobia resulting from a past experience with another dentist. Apparently, Wikipedia says this is called dentophobia. Needless to say, the byproduct of this phobia was the neglect of my teeth beyond my daily routine and I needed lots of work done. A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Cronin. Before my first appointment, I literally had to have a whiskey prior to walking into the building. Like I said above, I had a legitimate phobia (and I like whiskey). After my initial consultation, Dr. Cronin outlined our plan and explained every procedure that was to happen in detail to me. And so began my almost 2-year journey of getting my teeth back to their desired state. After my first appointment, my fear melted away (with the help of sedation dentistry J). However, after that first procedure, I no longer needed the NO2. I was completely comfortable with Dr. Cronin as she had garnered my implicit trust. Whether it’s the office manager, your dental hygienist, Dr. Cronins assistant Janann, or Dr. Cronin herself, the team at Rittenhouse Smiles care about what they do and go above and beyond for their patients! They work hard to make you feel comfortable while in the office, they ensure you understand every detail of what will happen while you sit in the chair, and the quality of Dr. Cronin’s work is second to none. If you live/work in and around the Philadelphia area, and are looking for a dentist, or you are unhappy with your current dentist, look no further than Dr. Cronin and the team at Rittenhouse Smiles. Thank you, Dr. Cronin and team!!! -Patrick M.

I recently had the pleasure of Dr. Andrea Cronin working on my smile and am very happy with the result! Dr. Cronin took time to explain what my options for treatment were and suggested the best route to take. She is very genuine and kind, which put me at ease. The entire Rittenhouse Smiles staff is wonderful …. with happy smiles, they make you feel comfortable and welcome the minute you walk into the door until you leave. Thank you for a great experience!

Wonderful Team of individuals. Going to the dentist can be challenging even without COVID but Dr. Cronin & her Team took every precaution felt completely safe. They make you feel comfortable, keep you informed on what they are doing and ensure you understand your treatment. I have and will continue to recommend this Team to anyone in need of their services!

I hadn’t gone to a dentist for over 20 years. I lucked out and found them by doing research online for the best dentist. I came across Rittenhouse Smiles and called and came in for a talk. Dr. Cronin and her entire staff are TOP professionals. Put me at ease. I can control how it goes and how much discomfort. I got started with Jill deep cleaning my teeth, Dr. Z’s shots of no-pain, and Dr. Cronin basically did the finest work I’ve ever seen. I go back now for polishing, and then go in for checkups. My teeth are saved, I chew on both sides, and I was educated on how to keep my teeth clean. I can’t thank them enough! So worth it!!

This place is amazing. The staff is so kind and genuinely concerned about you. They all make conversation and try to get to know you better. Dr. Cronin is great. She wants you to be happy with your smile and asks if you are satisfied with any procedure. The work she did on my tooth is amazing and feels natural. She is very caring and will guide you to the right direction. Everyone here helped me through a tough time. My tooth was broken on a Sunday night during a busy midterm week, and they were able to help me the next day. I am so grateful to have found Rittenhouse Smiles. They truly put a smile on my face whenever I went in! Highly recommended!!

I cannot say enough positive things about Rittenhouse Smiles. I love the warm atmosphere as you walk through the door. You are always greeted with a smile. Everyone is so friendly, and they genuinely care about you. Dr. Cronin is the best of the best! She takes the time to listen to your concerns before beginning your exam. She puts you at ease with her caring demeanor and knowledge of her craft. Her work is impeccable. I would, without a doubt, recommend Dr. Cronin to anyone!

Wonderful! Spectacular! Amazing! I mean what more can I say – from my very first visit I was sold. I have had extensive dental work done & move all the time so finding a good dentist is a HUGE deal for me. The entire staff is a dream. They never shame you for anything (I hate it when the dentist talk down to me – I grind so I’ve had more work done). I have been in the chair 2x and pointed out something (other than what I as getting fixed) and Dr. Cronin & staff were like….okay let’s just fix that!’ Wait…like now? FINALLY! A dentist office that sees a cavity/something and just goes in and fixes it! No – come back in 2 weeks and then again in another 2 weeks. They knock it out, keep you happy, and actually make it EASY to go to the dentist. Do yourself a favor and just go!

Dr Cronin and Dr Zangaladze Thank you for not only taking care of me , but making me feel so safe medically in this Covid World . Each and every staff member treated me with such confidence with what and how they were doing . Painless as the saying goes !!!! Your team Rocks !!!!

Tom D. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t understand how someone can write a bad review about this dental practice because they don’t accept dental insurance. What practice does? This is a very professional practice. The staff is wonderful and professional. Dr. Cronin is the best dentist I have ever seen. She and her staff know the latest techniques in dentistry and perform them with care and sensitivity. They are the best around.
