Where did you study dentistry?

Dr. Cruser grew up in Virginia Beach. He completed his undergraduate degree from Duke University before attending the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry, where he graduated from in 1981.

  • American Dental Association
  • Virginia Dental Association
  • Tidewater Dental Association

What is your favorite thing about being a dentist?

What Dr. Cruser enjoys most about his work is getting to know the patients and their families so well throughout each appointment.

When you’re busy at the office, what do you like to do?

Dr. Cruser and his wife Sara have been happily married for over three decades and have two adult children named Wade and Jennifer. He enjoys reading, playing golf, and keeping up with sports in general in his free time, especially when it comes to Duke teams. He also really enjoys the ocean – he even wanted to be an oceanographer when first starting out at college.
