Dr. Crandall was raised in eastern Washington in the small farming community of Benton City. His interest in the dental profession started in high school because of great experiences with his dentist and orthodontist in Richland, WA. He shadowed another local dentist and saw how, as a dentist, you have the ability to change people’s lives for the better. After high school, Dr. Crandall spent two years living in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he gained fluency in Spanish and a love for Latin America. His goals and ambition then led him to Brigham Young University where he earned a degree in biology. It was during this time that he met his wife Melinda and they were married in 2006. They currently have four children and are expecting their fifth.
In 2008, Dr. Crandall attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry where he participated in service programs providing dental care for underserved areas of the state. Although Dr. Crandall envisioned following in the footsteps of his orthodontist, he quickly found greater satisfaction in performing the procedures offered in a general dentistry practice. After graduation, Dr. Crandall moved to Ephrata, Washington and enjoyed working in the small towns of Quincy, Moses Lake, and Ephrata for several years. He remains on the cutting edge of dentistry through regular attendance of continuing education courses, personal study, and participation in local study clubs.
After a long search to find the perfect place to raise his family, he and his wife found exactly what they were looking for in the community of Monroe.
