Dr. Croft is South Dakota’s first and only American Dental Board of Anesthesia Diplomate. Before earning his DDS at the Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine Dr. Croft graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Utah. He completed a hospital-based, CODA-accredited, residency in Dental Anesthesiology at the Stony Brook University Medical Center and is licensed to provide all levels of sedation/anesthesia.
During his residency Dr. Croft completed rotations in Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Pediatric Medicine, Pain Management, Post-Anesthesia Care, Ambulatory Anesthesia and Office-Based Anesthesia. On a daily basis he anesthetized patients for medical and dental procedures across the spectrum of medical complexity, working in the main operating room, the emergency setting, and in private offices throughout New York. With this training Dr. Croft is uniquely prepared to provide anesthetics specifically in ambulatory settings like dental offices.
He is also Director at Large for the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists and is the Dean of the Institute for the Management of Pain and Anxiety. He divides his time between providing continuing education for dental professionals across the nation and providing care in the private practice setting. Since completing residency over a decade ago, he has provided anesthetics for thousands of patients of all age groups and needing a wide range of clinical procedures.
When there is time between chasing dreams with his wife Michelle and raising their five lively children, Dr. Croft can often be found trail running the back country of the rocky mountains.
