Dr Bill Cranford Rock Hill dentist

I love working as a dentist in Rock Hill, South Carolina, my hometown. I am thankful for the many families who have trusted me with their dental care since 1984. I value the relationships I have with the friends who visit our office.

Contact Cranford Dental if you are looking for a dental home for your family. We would love to welcome you to our office.

My Family and Community


“Rock Hill is such a warm and caring place. I realize how truly fortunate I am to live and work here.”


I graduated from Rock Hill High School and Clemson University. I returned to Rock Hill and worked at “The Bleachery” as a textile chemist. I then studied at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. There I met my wife, Martha Stephens Cranford. I graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1983.

I have three daughters and a son. Laura Anne and Jack Hofler live in Florence, SC; Margaret and David Koon in Charlotte; Cheney and Elizabeth Robinson in Rock Hill. Will is a dental student at MUSC.

Bill Cranford Family

I enjoy giving back to the community where I grew up and raised my family. I have been active as a leader and volunteer at Westminster Presbyterian Church, the American Red Cross, Boy Scouts, United Way, and various free dental clinics.

My favorite charity is the High Cotton Classic benefit shoot. Founded in 1991, this is a sporting clays event which raises funds for youth events in Rock Hill. I helped organize the “Trapper Program”, which trains young people to lead and serve in their communities when they return as adults.


“A good dentist combines professional expertise with listening to what the patient really wants and needs. We work to do that well here.”
