Greg Crews, DDS
I am a lifelong resident of Barboursville, WV, graduating from Barboursville High School in 1976. In addition, I graduated from West Virginia University and West Virginia University School of Dentistry in 1983. I subsequently joined my father, William G. Crews Jr. DMD in practice. I am a member of the American Dental Association, West Virginia Dental Association, Huntington Dental Society, and Academy of Operative Dentistry. I have served as President of the Huntington Dental Society and am currently on the executive council of the WVDA of which I have served for 15 years. My family and I attend Steele Memorial United Methodist Church and serve on numerous committees of which our most rewarding are youth and missions. I am active in Ebenezer Dental Clinic, a strong supporter of the Boy Scouts of America, as well as many other charitable organizations.
I have a wonderful and beautiful wife of 31 years, Gina, who works part time at St. Mary’s Hospital in the pediatric department. I have been blessed with two amazing children, Spencer for 23 years, who attended West Virginia University, was a huge mountaineer fan, and the love of our life for 23 years. Spencer went to be with the Lord on December 4, 2011 and will forever be missed by his family and friends, but he is at peace and we were truly blessed that God allowed him to be part of our lives for 23 years. Suzanna is 20 and is a sophomore at Marshall University majoring in Communications Disorders. She is extremely active in the youth ministry at church, enjoys horses, singing, and shopping.
I enjoy family, friends, golf, horses, all sports especially WVU and MU, fishing, and the practice of dentistry which allows me to serve both my family of patients as well as those less fortunate.
