Kurt M. Krause, D.M.D.

Dr. Kurt M. Krause, D.M.D., is a highly distinguished dentist in Cranford, New Jersey. He started the private and independent practice Krause Dental Care so his patients can experience highly individualized fine aesthetic and essential dentistry for a healthy smile helping them live and feel better. “We have become a trusted dental home with a family tradition of excellence.”

I am amazed by the organization and beauty of healthy natural systems and find the head and neck region especially the oral masticatory system of wonderfully efficient and effective design. In dentistry I directly see the benefits of improved oral health varying from relief of pain to the restoration of pleasant appearing form, color and proper function as very satisfying. My unwavering focus has been to lead my patients to the best in dentistry and aligning that goal with striving for excellence to improve their oral health and smile. Committed to the art and science of dentistry, he attributes his professional values and dedication to practice quality dentistry to his father, Dr. Frank W. Krause, a highly respected orthodontist with his own practice in Cranford for fifty years. Dr. Krause credits his mother, a long-time community volunteer in Cranford, for his strong communication skills.

In preparation for his career, he received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Allegheny College, PA.
