Meet the Team

Rachel Haley, Practice Secretary


Rachel joined Dr. Krause’s team in the spring of 2017 after a decade of working as an administrative assistant at a digital advertising agency in Manhattan. She was seeking a new opportunity to apply her years of corporate experience to a patient-focused, more personalized setting that would allow her to be an integral part of a smaller office team operation.

Born and raised in Buffalo NY, Rachel graduated with a B.A. from Brandeis University and went on to earn her M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She then moved to NYC to pursue her acting career in Off-Broadway theater. She eventually moved on from that path and entered the business world.

Rachel lives in nearby Scotch Plains with her husband, daughter, and two cats. She is thrilled to finally be working close to home (bye bye, NJ Transit!) and to be a part of the Cranford community. In her spare time, Rachel likes to read, sing, and spend time with her family. She’s a firm believer that good dental health is key to one’s overall health and well-being and is pleased to share that philosophy with our patients. Along with Dr. Krause and the rest of the team, Rachel treats each patient as a respected individual seeking their best smile.

"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!"
