Welcome To

T. Kirk Crane, DDS

in a Relaxed Atmosphere



Dr. Crane was born in Newellton, Louisiana, and graduated from LSU in Baton Rouge in 1972. After working as a state health inspector, Dr. Crane attended the LSU School of Dentistry and graduated in 1977. He moved his office to Lafayette in 1992 after he originally opened one in his hometown. 

He is a member of the American Dental Association®, the Louisiana Dental Association, the Acadiana District Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Pierre Fauchard Academy, the American Orthodontic Society, the Academy of Laser Dentistry, and the Academy of Computerized Dentistry. 

Dr. Crane enjoys boating, hunting, playing golf, anything LSU, working in his yard, and doting on his grandchildren. He has served on the board of directors of the Krewe of Triton as secretary, president, and, in 2010, captain. In this role, he was responsible for developing and coordinating the ball and tableau theme — “Once Upon a Time” — including decorations, float design, and costumes. In 2014, Dr. Crane was selected by the Krewe of Triton XXXIV to reign over their ball and tableau. Dr. Crane was also named 232-HELP Doctor of the Year in 2014.
