Dr. Paul Crandall  DMD, PA:

Dr. Crandall grew up in Seal Beach, California.  After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Redlands, he worked in the commercial real estate business.  After working for a few years, he decided that he wanted to become a dentist and relocated to Portland, Oregon.  He attended dental school at Oregon Health Sciences University.  After graduating from dental school in 1989 he and his family moved to North Carolina, where he then completed a General Practice Residency at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.  Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Crandall and his wife, Julie, moved to the Lake Norman area to begin practice.  They have two children, Juliana and Jackson.

In 1988 I graduated from Armstrong State with an A.S. in Dental Hygiene.  For 20 years I have been a practicing Dental Hygienist.  I’ve been with Artisan Dental Care & Dr. Crandall for 7 years.  I can truly say that I love what I do.  I have been happily married for 16 years and am a mother of 3 wonderful and energetic children.  When I’m not working, I enjoy playing and being outdoors with my family.

 Carol Donna, Registered Dental Hygienist:

Having been in dental hygiene since graduating from the University of Vermont in 1980, the one on one patient care has proven to be a career well fitted.  It has been a joy to work with Dr. Crandall for many years now.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, outdoor activities, and volunteering.
