John Crumpton, DMD
I love being a dentist, and using my skills and knowledge to help the wonderful patients who trust me. Every day I am presented with different challenges and new ways to improve. My patients enrich my life, and I always enjoy meeting new friends. My staff and I work together to provide each visitor with the highest quality dental care and a positive, relaxing experience.
Education and Continuing Education
Before practicing dentistry, I attained my Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry at the State University of West Georgia. I then attended the Medical College of Georgia, where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.
As part of my continuing education, I am currently enrolled in the Medical College of Georgia Advanced Implant placement curriculum. Implants allow for more comprehensive patient care, and my patients can receive implants in our office without having to travel to see another specialist. I am also an active member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, and the Hinman Dental Society. I see my profession as a lifelong learning opportunity, and I know that my continuing education ensures the highest quality treatments for my patients.
I have always wanted to work in the medical field, helping the people in my community live healthier, happier lives. As a dentist, I have the opportunity to change the lives of my patients for the better, and teach them how to take great care of their teeth so their beautiful smiles last a lifetime.
I have been a dentist since 2001, and have met many wonderful people through my practice. I get the satisfaction of making my patients’ lives more comfortable, and also love seeing how relieved they are that coming to see the dentist really wasn’t a bad thing. My patients enjoy coming to our office, and seeing their smiles is my greatest reward.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Carrollton, and have lived in Cleveland since 2001. My wife, Elizabeth, and I have four children named Ross, Justin, Will and Ben. We also have three dogs named Soloman, Berrie and Snickers. When I come home, I love biking, running, swimming, and, of course, spending time with my family.
I am also active in our community, and have been on the Chamber of Commerce since 2001. I am an active member of Helen First Baptist Church. My wife and I are also very involved with the hemophilia community as well, because our two youngest children have hemophilia.
