What our clients say

Quality health care is most important to me, and when I find a winner, I keep coming back. For that reason, Dr. Crane has been my dentist for over 35 years. He is always current on maintaining his state-of-the-art skills, and his workmanship, talents, and compassionate care are tops! Dr. Crane has a keen expertise in recognizing problems that can best be addressed by a specialist, and he has a network of excellent associates to help with these matters. Dr. Crane treats each patient as he would treat himself. Temporarily living in Utah these past two years, I plan to move back to the CF/EC area; as such I have continued to keep Dr. Crane as my dentist.

Most Dental Patients Do Not Require Antibiotic Prophylaxis Prior To Procedures.

Consumer Reports (3/18, Carr) stated that compared with previous recommendations, “new guidelines call for fewer people to get antibiotics before a dental procedure.” The article noted that updated “treatment guidelines for dentists now advise antibiotics before dental procedures for only a few types of patients such as those with artificial heart valves, a history that includes a heart infection, or who were born with certain serious heart defects.” The article added that this means antibiotics are not indicated for most patients prior to dental work.

MouthHealthy.org provides additional information on antibiotic prophylaxis for heart patients. Additional information on antibiotic prophylaxis for dental patients with prosthetic joints and orthopedic implants is also available at MouthHealthy.org, which notes, “The American Dental Association has found it is no longer necessary for most dental patients with orthopedic implants to have antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent infection.”
