My Personal Story
I graduated from Northwestern High School in Rock Hill and Furman University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Then I attended dental school at the University of South Carolina James B. Edwards College of Dentistry, graduating in 2022.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to become a dentist.
My favorite Halloween costume was in 6th grade. That year, I dressed up as an evil dentist. I wore one of my dad’s old lab coats drenched in fake blood and carried a giant inflatable toothbrush that I whacked around. (Rest assured that was my only foray into evil dentistry.)
Cranford Dental is more than just a place to work. For me, it’s family. Thus every patient who walks in the door can count on being treated like family.
A guiding light for my dentistry is, “If this patient was my grandmother, how would I treat her?”Dr. Will Cranford
I am excited about practicing dentistry in Rock Hill, SC. In fact, after spending several years in both Greenville, SC and Charleston, SC, I can honestly say there isn’t a better place to live and work than this community.
I have many fond memories of growing up in Rock Hill. In fact, I still have the Come-See-Me Frog Jump trophy I won when I was 3 years old.
Rock Hill’s growth since I was a child has been positive and amazing. Likewise, the technology and services offered at Cranford Dental have kept up with our changing city.
Rock Hill is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. Understandably, I am committed to offering the best possible quality dental care to my hometown.
My Rock Hill Thrills
- Hanging out downtown (especially at Christmas)
- Walking at Riverwalk
- Running at Northwestern High School track
My Future at Cranford Dental
I feel fortunate to join a practice with such a long history of service to the people of Rock Hill.
At Cranford Dental, I enjoy welcoming new people to town. And I appreciate seeing people who helped me grow up, from longtime friends to middle school teachers.
Furthermore, I am fortunate to join a practice with my father, Dr. Bill Cranford, and sister, Dr. Elizabeth Robinson. Thankfully, both are role models for the type of dentist I want to.
Every patient who walks through the door is perfectly unique; Therefore, I will develop an individualized treatment plan that is perfect for them.Dr. Will Cranford
For the future, I want to continue Cranford Dental’s proud tradition of providing high-quality and ethical dentistry.
My long term plan includes 38 more years of Cranford Dental serving Rock Hill and surrounding communities.
