My fiancé and I moved to San Antonio just a few years ago and have been trying to find an office who genuinely cares about their patients . When we came for our new patient exams the front office staff was very welcoming , the dental assistants and hygienist’s took their time to explain EVERYTHING they were doing and cared to notate and make sure they had all medical history, dental history , and address any concerns we had . Previous dental offices we went to had us feel rushed and created extensive treatment plans for my fiancé when come to find out all she needed was fluoride treatments . We feel truly blessed and relieved to finally find a great office that cares and makes going to the dentist every 6 months something to look forward to and not dread .

I went to Dr. Cruse as a referral. I had dental work done at another Stone Oak dentist and was having problems. So, I went to him as a second opinion and he was awesome! He took the time to explain everything in terms I could understand. He went above and beyond spending time with me to help. Too bad I didnt know about him sooner! I will be switching to Dr. Cruse.

After eight years as my dental provider I can tell you that every team member in the practice are professional, courteous and knowledgeable. It’s not an easy thing to find a dentist that you trust are completely. I don’t dread my visits because I am comfortable in the chair and I know my oral health is their number one concern. It’s not about dollars, it’s about keeping a healthy and confident smile.

Dr. Cruse and his team have for many years provided my family and I the most updated dental treatment and maintenance program around. It was evident this past weekend when I needed emergency dental on a broken crown and he made time to bring me in for dental work. He is very engaging and explains everything in detail. I definitely recommend him for any dental work that you or your family may need!

My family have been coming to Dr. Cruse for over 10 years.  He is very competent and experienced with “superior patient” care as his number one goal.  It is a great experience from beginning to end when you visit Dr. Cruse and his staff.  Always friendly, courteous and compassionate which is a rare skill in the health industry.  We are very thankful to Dr. Cruse for the excellent care he has provided to our family over the years.  You won’t find a better dentist or staff!

I had a great visit! I love my dental Hygienist; you can tell she really cares about you and is careful in cleaning my teeth.  Margie at the front desk always greets you like family, so you always feel “at home”.  I am the type of person that use to not like going to the dentist at all, even for a regular cleaning; however Dr. Cruse and his entire staff make you feel very comfortable…..so I don’t mind it like I use to at other dental offices.

I have been going to Dr. Cruse for over a decade now. I have lived out of state for the past 4 years during medical school. When I come back to San Antonio once a year, I make an appointment with him. He is great and his staff is so nice. Makes going to the dentist an easy experience. My whole family goes to him. I just had an appointment since re-opening post COVID lockdown and the staff are taking every precaution to ensure patient safety. I wasnt worried at all. Highly recommend!!!

I went to him yesterday for a filling and replacement of a crown. I was anxious because I have a history of poor response to the numbing agent. But Dr Cruse made it almost enjoyable! His work was effective and the numbness was gone in less than 2 hours! The temporary fits perfectly. I’m so grateful to Dr Cruse.

My overall experience was absolutely fantastic! The staff is so amazing. They are friendly, easy to talk to, very helpful with any questions and gentle! They are really a fantastic team! Dr. Cruse was incredible. He explained everything to me in a way that was easier for me to understand as opposed to someone using Doctor terms. He was very knowledgeable, gentle, and overall a good doctor. I definitely will keep them as my preferred Dentist Office!

BEST DENTIST IN TEXAS! My family has used Dr. Cruse as our Dentist for about 18 years or so, even when we moved to Corpus Christi, Texas we drove back for his services. I have recommended him to several people and everyone has come back to thank me. As my children have grown and now have their own children, they still go to him for their dental needs. If you have just moved to town, or just looking for a Dentist that cares and will personally call you just to follow up on his services, well you can stop looking and give him a call. He is a real old fashion style family dentist.

Dr. Cruse and his staff are amazing! They all take their time with you, make you feel safe and welcomed and go above and beyond to help you in any way. Dr Cruse is the sweetest and makes sure you come out feeling great! He works fast but all while explaining what he’s doing and does it 110%! They also will call you to make sure your doing great the next day! They really care for you! I am someone who has always been scared of the dentist but I love it now that I’ve found the BEST in Texas!

The staff is always very friendly and welcoming.  There is never a wait and things go very smoothly.  I appreciate all of them and Dr. Cruse.  He is very professional and genuinely cares for his patients.  He takes the time to address and answer any questions or concerns you may have.  My family and I have been patients of Dr. Cruse since 1998 and we will continue to recommend him to everyone we know.  Overall, it is just a great dental experience!

Dr. Cruse is the best dentist I have EVER been to. His staff is always friendly and professional. I had a crown repaired and a cleaning yesterday! I’ve had a lot of dental hygienists over the years and I can say his was the absolute best and most thorough! Go see him. You won’t be disappointed! I am very anxious about dentists and Dr. Cruse was sensitive to that. I don’t know anyone who loves going to the dentist but at least now I’m more comfortable! Thanks Dr. Cruse to you and your awesome staff!! Hook ’em!

Sarah Y. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


My kids and I have been a patient of Dr. Cruse’s since 2007 and we have no complaints. Dr. Cruse and his staff are very friendly and professional. They make the effort to connect with their patients and make adults/kids feel comfortable. The office is clean and well decorated and they offer complimentary beverage, wifi and reading materials in the lobby. They also don’t make you wait that long before you are seen. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cruse to anyone looking for dental services.

Dr. Cruse and his staff are the best at taking care of my teeth. They are friendly, caring ,and conscientious when cleaning and doing other dental work. I’ve only had a few fillings due to good genetics and good dental care that I receive from Dr. Cruse and the hygienists. My appointments are scheduled at my convenience and reminders texted to me. They’re always on time for my appointments. Dr. Cruse has been my dentist for 30 years! I realize I’m one of the few people who love having my teeth cleaned but I think it’s because I’ve had such a positive experience with Dr. Cruse and his staff.

WOW. I live in Austin and drive down to SA to see Dr. Bill. He and his team have impeccable attention to detail, and make me feel as though I’m the most important client ever (smile). Cannot rave enough about Dr. Bill’s expertise, kindness, and caring compassion. High five and a thumb’s up for his extraordinary team. If you need a SA dentist who always goes the extra mile, then check out Dr. William J. Cruse, DDS and his remarkable team of experts. #DrBillRocks

Dr. Cruse has been caring for myself and my family for over 10 years.  I always find his office staff, Dental Assistants and Dr. Cruse to be helpful, friendly, and accommodating.  I have had unexpected dental issues where they have made an appointment at the last minute, have made referrals to specialists when needed, and do a great job of reminding me of upcoming scheduled appointments in a timely way.  It is important to me that everyone in my family gets great care and feels comfortable and confident about it, Dr. Cruse and his staff do an exceptional job – 5 stars from me and my entire family!

Dr. Cruse has been my dentist for about 20 years. He and his staff are consistently professional, knowledgeable, and kind. They took care of my dad as he aged,taking care to select the best hygienist and treatments for his needs. I recommend Dr.Cruse to anyone in search of a great dental office. You won’t want to go anywhere else after having a cleaning in this relaxing, friendly office!

Had the best visit! Love Dr. Cruse and all of his staff! My cleaning was excellent, in a timely manner and my teeth feel very clean. Dr. Cruse’s staff always make you feel comfortable and cared for..very much like a family 🙂 I highly recommend Dr. Cruse to everyone looking for a true family dentist .

GREAT DENTAL OFFICE!!! 1. Tisha – front desk secretary. She is very friendly, professional, and persistent if you need help getting something authorized. I am a Veteran who was referred to Dr Cruse’s office. In spite of this, the VA was giving this office a hard time about approving a panoramic x-ray, the least expensive part of what was already approved. Tisha did not let the stubborn and ignorant VA personal get to her. She persisted until she finally spoke to someone who knew how to read dental language and got the x-ray approved. Tisha could have easily given up and told me that it was up to me to resolve the issue, but she was tenacious for me. And that alone was enough to earn my future business. 2. Margaret – dental hygienist. Very nice, professional, gentle, and energetic. She took many x-rays in a flash with the help of her “secret helper”, another hygienist who zapped the x-rays from outside the room. She took at least 10 x-rays in less than 2 minutes. She explained all of the pictures to me, which conveniently showed up on a screen that hovered in front of me. She then cleaned my teeth, took measurements, took pictures of my teeth with a cool little camera, etc. She was thorough and gentle. (There was some scraping, but that was my fault for not having gotten a cleaning in over 2 years.) When I told her about my tooth severe sensitivity to cold, she gave me a prescription strength toothpaste – $14 bc the VA won’t cover it for some reason. Hopefully it will help. She gave me a fluoride rinse, which was far more pleasant that it’s been with other hygienists in the past. She summed up everything she’d done and paged Dr Cruse. 3. Dr Cruse. He came in, gave me a firm handshake, and asked me about my dental history. He listened carefully, looked at my teeth, and explained what needed to be done. He was friendly, a good listener, and very focused. [So much better than the last dentist I saw, Dr Christopher Knight (Mission Family Dental), who was an arrogant, incompetent jerk, and treated me like an idiot for telling him I still had pain after his work was “done”. It’s bc of Dr Knight’s rude and inept work that I developed an severe anxiety about going to the dentist – something I’d never experienced before.] Over the next month or so, Dr Cruse’s office is going to fill a couple of small cavities and replace a bad bridge that Dr Knight put in about 4 years ago. Whether the VA approves any more of my dental coverage outside the VA, Dr Cruse’s office will have my (and my family’s) business from now on. A big thanks to Dr Cruse and his team!!!

Wow! I just had a filling placed by Dr. Cruse today! The entire process was quick, easy and 100% painless! He is an incredible doctor with fabulous bedside manner. His office is very nice and his staff is extremely caring! I would highly recommend this office to anyone! It would be hard to find a better dental office than this one!

Dr. Cruse and his staff are truly amazing people. I’ve had the pleasure of working with them. Each time I’ve seen how well they care for the patients, and Dr. Cruse cares for his staff. I’ve been a Hygienist for 11 years, and it’s few and far between to find such a genuine group of health care providers.

Dr. Cruse’s staff is friendly and helpful. And I’ve never waited more than five minutes to see him. He is generally interested in what’s best for his patients, not what is quickest for him or will generate the most income for his office. He always takes his time with me. I feel like he cares about me as a person and a patient, not just a number on a chart. Plus I love their use of technology with text and email appointment reminders.
