Meet Dr. R. Craig Ford


All that is good begins with a SMILE

Dr. Ford was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and moved to Southern California at the age of 9. His desire to become a dentist started in the third grade. After graduating from Canoga Park High School, Dr. Ford completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado and California State University Northridge. He went on to attend the University of Southern California for his graduate studies, graduating from USC School of Dentistry in the top 10% of his class in 1977.

Dr. Ford decided to open his own dental practice in Woodland Hills, as it was the neighborhood he grew up in and would allow him to be close to his large family and friends. He has always valued the importance of patient education and continues to educate himself and his TEAM to always provide his patients with the latest dental technology. Dr. Ford has been restoring dental implants for over 30 years. He is a premier provider for Invisalign and has witnessed the many health benefits of straight teeth. Dr. Ford completed his residency at UCLA in sleep disorders which includes sleep apnea and snoring. He can design an appliance to wear at night for patients with these disorders. Dr. Ford is passionate about dentistry and truly enjoys each and every aspect.
