Meet Dr. Crawford

Bethany Crawford, DDS

It is with a great deal of excitement and joy that I am joining Dr. Ann Walters in practice! I trained to become an orthodontist at the Ohio State University where Dr. Walters is a faculty member, and I have been working in private practice ever since graduating in 2013. It has been a pleasure and a privilege getting to know Dr. Walters, and I look forward to continuing her long-standing tradition of conscientious high-quality orthodontic care in the Marion community!

I grew up in Alliance, Ohio in what you might call a “dental” family. After graduating from high school, I moved to Columbus to go to school at The Ohio State University. I finished my undergraduate, dental, and orthodontic training there, and after twelve years of OSU education, I consider myself to be a true Buckeye! My father continues to practice dentistry today, and I am so proud to have followed in his footsteps as a fourth-generation dentist!

In the past several years since graduation, I have been busy practicing orthodontics, and pursuing my hobbies. I love running, all things food-related, traveling to new places, and being outside. I’m happiest when I’m spending time with my husband, Dan, our little boy, Jack, and newest arrival, Iris! Thanks to those two, I'm able to proudly sporting the title of “Mom” on my resume!

Most importantly, you have my word that I will always do whatever I can to provide the highest quality of care with compassion, empathy, and fun! My philosophy is to deliver conservative but effective orthodontic management of developing problems from the mixed dentition through adulthood. I will even be adding new treatment options such as clear aligner treatment! Please don’t hesitate to call with any questions – whether it’s about me or about treatment, I’m here to help!
