I always have a great time with Doctor Cranham and Doctor M, when I visit they both have done a great professional job with my dental process. And it has been extensive and so far I have been pleased. I can’t wait to see the finished product. Everyone has been wonderful I wonder why would anyone go someplace else? After all it is your smile and your teeth. And these folks do care.

I have worked with Dr. John Cranham DDS to restore my bite using crowns. Each time has been a very friendly and personal experience. The entire staff is on board to give the patient the most professional and caring service possible. I can whole heartily and without reservation give Complete Dentistry of Chesapeake 5 stars.

I had 4 teeth pulled today. Omg, Dr. Fitzgerald is an exceptional dentist. Didn’t feel anything when he pulled my teeth. I am recommending him to all my family and associates. The best dentist I have ever been to.

I was very impressed with the smooth transitioning through each step of the process after entering the facility. I felt as if I was their only customer – there were a team of people that guiding me through everything with ease and with a caring persona. The doctor and staff were very thorough in explaining everything and I felt they went beyond to accommodate me. Very professional!

I saw Dr. Cranahan and staff for a dental problem/repair that needed prompt attention. As with all my dental appointments there, I received professional and friendly service. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Cranham for years and have always been very pleased with his expert care and concern.

Always great care and service at Chesapeake Complete Dentristy. I appreciate their implementation of stringent Covid protocols to protect both staff sand patients. Plus their ability to work with multiple insurances makes the regions best care amazingly affordable. Definitely 5 star care!

As someone who has anxiety when it comes to dentists, I have to say this place is amazing! Dr. Cranham is wonderful, she was constantly explaining everything she was doing and making sure I was comfortable and in no pain. I’m so glad I found this office, highly recommend!

As a person who has anxiety with dental visits Kelly made everything completely comfortable. Dr. Cranham was also very welcoming, she made the visit less stressful than it normally is for myself. After having bad experiences previously and petrified of dental visits, this was wonderful. I drive an hour from where i live to come visit this office and staff!

Professional, friendly, and attentive staff. Dr. Cranham is an excellent dentist and strives to instill his knowledge of dentistry with his fellow doctors and staff. Presley is an excellent Dental Hygienist who is caring to her patients needs and concerns and takes pride in her work. I am grateful to them all for always taking great care of my dental needs.

I made an appointment here for the first time and I’m so very apprehensive about dentist that I just don’t go. I went in for a cavity and the staff made me, Mr apprehensive feel totally comfortable. Found out it wasn’t even a cavity. Still had work done and the staff was amazing and I’m going back to finish getting the rest of the work needed, done here! Excellent experience!!!!

I look forward going to Dr. Cranham, as I know I will have a great outcome. Dr. Cranham and his staff work with you as a team to give you the best care! They make you feel comfortable right from the friendly receptionists until it’s time to take you back, where you can lay back in a comfy chair that softly vibrates your upper back while you watch TV, as they work on your teeth. And with all the modern equipment, you can be sure you are getting top notch care! I would definitely recommend Chesapeake Center for Complete Dentistry.

I searched online for a dentist who specialized with TMJ and found them. I was a little skeptical at first but the moment I walked in I felt welcomed. Turns out I have bone degeneration in my jaw and the last thing I wanted was to have surgery. Thankfully Dr. Cranham reassured me that surgery was the very last resort and that he uses alternative measures (splints) to correct the problem. My jaw will take more time to completely heal but I can proudly say I no longer have constant pain and can eat anything without worry. All of the staff are so friendly and personable. I actually look forward to going to the dentist now. I highly recommend them from a simple cleaning to the most extreme thing like bone degeneration. You will not be dissatisfied.

Chesapeake Center for Complete Dentistry is easily the best dentist experiences I’ve had. The staff are awesome. They do a great job of taking time to explain what’s going to happen and they often request for feedback to make sure you are most comfortable. Everyone is friendly and there is no rush to finish. I’ve never had an unpleasant interaction with them. They also do fantastic with their treatment plan process; scheduling a meeting to sit down and discuss a breakdown of whatever the procedure is, discussing financing options and giving you an idea (or image, if possible) of what your teeth may look like in the future. It was a very reassuring process, with no pressure. I highly recommend them!

Great experience, very professional, absolutely recommend! They actually saw me at my appointment time rather than 20-30 minutes late, which has been my experience at other places. Hygienist Amario has great bedside manner, really appreciate the way he explained everything and took care of me

Dr. Cranham was my family’s dentist 25 years ago. I was thrilled when we finally moved home after my husband’s retirement from the military and an additional decade living and working in Northern VA. After a quick google search, I found his “new” practice was right around the corner from our new home. I made an 8 am appointment and was in and out in just over an hour. I had Presley, the gentlest technician ever, clean my teeth, and Dr. Knuth check everything out after. They welcomed me back to the practice (still had my records from the 90s!) and a few days later I received a lovely letter with a handwritten note from Dr. Knuth welcoming me back as well. All in all a great experience. I recommend this practice highly!

Thus far, I’ve had a very positive experience and they’ve been more than accommodating and explanatory every step of the way. They listened to what my wants, needs and concerns were and moved forward accordingly. If there was something I felt unclear about, I asked and they reassured me, and it’s been exactly as they’ve explained it would be. I highly recommend them. By the way, they’re outside of my insurance plan, which says A LOT. This practice handles you in a caring manner from the time you enter until the time you exit, and the level of professionalism and friendliness is sincere, and unsurpassed. The office is state of the art, clean and organized and I highly recommend the Dr.’s there. They know what they’re doing.

Dr. Cranham you totally ROCK!!!! Thank you for my perfect smile. You have the best staff ever….especially Kristen, she held my hand from day one! I’m forever grateful! ��� For the past 10 years I have been told my case was irreparable and nothing could be done to fix my smile permanently. Dr. Cranham took the challenge head on and went beyond what I could’ve imagined. Perfect is an understatement for my smile. From my consultation to my final product every step was was professional and genuine. THANK YOU AGAIN DR. Cranham!!!!

Dr. Cranham and his staff are excellent! Dr. Cranham and his staff provide tremendous service, and truly cares for their patients. His staff did everything to make sure I felt comfortable. Dr. Cranham is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of dentistry. He thoroughly assessed and explained my TMJ issues and outlined my treatment plan, which included wearing a TMJ splint that helped me heal and reduce various symptoms. He has state of the art equipment, which has made the process easier. I can’t thank Dr. Cranham and his staff enough for all the help with the process and for greatly improving my quality of life.

My teeth was delivered to me this morning. When Dr. Cranham handed me a mirror to look and asked me what I think of them? I told him quietly that they look great. He proceeded with his professional and skillful way as usual. Let me said this. My teeth don’t look great. They look Amazing! I don’t know if I can use Beautiful to describe them, but I am using it here! This “Project” started a little over a year ago. Over a dozen visits to this office, on each visit, the office is well organized and staffs are caring. Dr.Cranham is a good listener and he answers my questions. I don’t feel rushed. He is caring and conscientious. When I sit at the scary dentist chair, he always try to alleviate the suffering. I am overwhelmed with gratitude! Thank you all!

Absolutely perfect! It just doesn’t get any better! The hygenist, as always, was and is amazing. But…and a big but…the fact that I am asked for a review while I’m still sitting in the chair is surprising. Made me feel more like a number than an appreciated customer. The company that runs your reviews would be replaced if they worked for me.

Very professional atmosphere from the front desk to the dentist. They were all informative and polite. I had an uneasy feeling at first going to a new dentist but I am glad I made the switch, my daughter even was pleased after we left she stated “mom I really like that doctor”(meaning dentist). I am totally terrible with names but I cannot thank my hygienist enough, she was extremely nice and was defiantly knowledgeable and answering all my questions. Out all of the dentist that I previously went to if there was a problem they would send me out to another specialty (sometimes that can be tiring) but here I can actually get my needs taking care of in one place. 5 stars for me!!!!!!!!

I really love the care and individualized treatment Chesapeake Center offers. They use cutting edge equipment and give honest and transparent evaluations about your dental needs. There are no monetary surprises and the staff is knowledgeable, personable and friendly! I’m glad I found them a couple of years ago

I’ve always came up with every excuse to avoid going to the dentist until I started coming to Chesapeake complete dental. This place makes you feel at ease & the technology they have makes any dental work less stressful. Thank you to all the staff and especially to you presley Peele for making me feel @ ease and being so pleasant
