Dr. Steven R. Crandall
Chief Clinical Advisor
Dr. Crandall graduated from Upper St. Clair High School and completed his BS degree in Pre-Medicine at Pennsylvania State University where he was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Medical Honorary Society. He received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Dental Medicine in 1983.
His first practice was opened in Cranberry Township in 1984, followed by his Upper St. Clair location in 1985. In 1990 he received his training for placement of Dental Implants, studying under Dr. Jack Hahn. He then completed course work with Dr. Frank Spears at the Seattle Institute where he trained in cosmetics and complex restorative dentistry. From 1995 through 1999 he attended the Pankey Institute in Florida where he learned in detail about occlusal disease and how the teeth can function in harmony with the jaw joints to help people suffering with Tmj problems.
After years of commuting, he sold his Cranberry office in 2001 and practices solely in his Upper St. Clair location. In his pursuit of excellence, he has continued to take additional course work on complex restorative dentistry in all of it’s aspects. He considers himself to be a lifelong student in the pursuit of excellence. In 2004 he added his certification in providing Invisalign® treatment and Cerec restorations. In 2016 he got certified for Pinhole Rejuvenation.
After 36 years of direct patient care, Dr. Crandall is transitioning solely to the role of Chief Clinical Advisor for SHDA. We are very excited about the opportunity this transition presents and the positive effect it will have on bringing our established protocols and philosophy of care to more and more people in our community. Starting January 2021, his sole focus as Chief Clinical Advisor will encompass the ongoing support and training on our philosophy of care for all of our dentists and team members at our locations.
