Dr. Krause

Cranford, NJ Family Dentist - Kurt M Krause DMD - Krause Dental Care

My interest in science and attention to detail contributed to the commitment to study the art and science of dentistry.  I also wanted to work directly with people to favorably impact their health and see results of my efforts.  In dentistry the results can be dramatic varying from relief of pain to the restoration of pleasantly appearing form and proper function.  His unwavering focus has been to lead his patients to the best in dentistry and aligning that goal with striving for excellence to improve their oral health and smile. 

Personal History

Dr. Krause attributes his professional values and dedication to practice quality dentistry to his father, Dr. Frank W. Krause, a highly respected orthodontist who maintained his practice in Cranford for fifty years.  He attributes his strong communication skills to his mother, a long-time community volunteer in Cranford.

As a competitive and accomplished varsity distance runner in both high school and college Dr. Krause learned the benefit of healthy living habits and discipline.  He currently maintains his fitness with regular exercise. He supplements his fitness routines with swimming, cross-training, and hiking or backpacking. Each year Dr. Krause hikes segments of the 2190 mile Appalachian Trail and so far has completed the full trail in the states of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia.  He also enjoys fishing in both inland and offshore waters. 

Professional History

He received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Allegheny College, P.A.  After obtaining his Doctorate in Dental Medicine he completed a general practice residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo, Kaleida Health.  He then began practicing general dentistry in Philadelphia while completing a two year internship in the private practices of faculty from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Departments of Orthodontics and Periodontal Prosthesis.

"I had a cap come loose. I called and got a nearly immediate call back, before office hours. Dr. Krause arranged to meet me with 90 minutes, made the repair and had me on my way. Frankly, amazing service in this day and age."

"I fully endorse, Dr. Kurt M. Krause and his dedicated team.

I first went to Dr. Krause a few years ago to have one of my front top teeth repaired after I chipped it. This tooth and the one next to it had a few procedures done in the past by other dentists. While Dr. Krause examined my situation he noticed that I also needed work done on the tooth next to the chip. I knew he was correct and listened to all of the options he provided. Dr. Krause didn’t push me or force me to take any option which I appreciated. I am not comfortable with having to go through these types of procedures but Dr. Krause gained my confidence in the way he communicated with me so I moved forward with him. Well I have to say I am so glad I took his advice and I now feel and look better than I ever did before meeting Dr. Krause.

In the past I avoided the dentist unless I had major problem. My experience with other places is they are ruff and don’t take the time to build a relationship with you. When I go to Dr. Krause I genuinely feel he cares about me. I also feel he is a perfectionist and he cares more about my teeth then I do. When doing work on my teeth Dr. Krause does a great job and is gentle. Dr. Krause also takes the time to talk with me about my life and has even offered me his opinion on my allergy problems. His advice helped me greatly."

"I have been under Dr. Krause's care for 5 years. He is always professional, kind , and caring. He runs an organized practice and he and his team are always prepared and punctual when it comes to my appointments.

Dr. Krause always attempts to go "above and beyond" with his services, and his follow up is excellent.

I will remain a loyal customer of Dr. Krause as long as I live in the area. I would HIGHLY recommend him as a dentist!"
