Dr. Cranska graduated from the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry in 1979 and opened a general practice in Annapolis, MD, the same year. His practice expanded and moved to Arnold in 1994, Severna Park in 2005.
Dr. Cranska became interested in dental lasers and sought training in Laser Periodontal Therapy (now FDA approved as LANAP, Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), a breakthrough procedure to treat periodontal disease. In 1999, he trained to become one of the first ten dentists in the world to use this procedure. Since then, Dr. Cranska has gone on to become a published author, lecturer and Certified Clinical Instructor of the LANAP procedure at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD), teaching other dentists how to use and integrate the LANAP technique into their own practice. Dentists from around the world travel for this hands-on clinical instruction. He also has attained Advance Proficiency Certification with the Academy of Laser Dentistry. Dr. Cranska often speaks to other dentists about his laser techniques and procedures of LANAP.
