Craig A. Rechkemmer, DDS
General Dentist

“Dr. Craig” Rechkemmer earned both his BA in Biology and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of Missouri, Kansas City in May 2002. He spent six years on the Tooth Truck providing dental care to at-risk children in the Springfield area. He has earned several awards for this work, including the 2007 Missouri Dental Association’s Presidential Citation and a 2007 Greater Springfield Dental Society’s Dentist of the Year nomination.

In 2008, Dr. Craig joined the Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock where he created a state-wide Dental Outreach program and provided care to children of all needs and abilities. After four years with the Children’s Hospital he has returned to Springfield to create Little Grins Dental, where he provides care to children in a warm and friendly environment.

This was our first time visiting a dental practice geared totally toward kids and my 5 year old daughter LOVED it! From the moment we walked in, she couldn't wait to see which themed room she would be in and which 3D movie she would watch--all after playing in the great play gym in the lobby, of course!

Dr. Craig and his staff are all fantastic! My 4 year old had the time of his life. He did great for his first visit, and the staff really recognized him for his good behavior.
