About Us

Lighthouse Dental Group

At Lighthouse Dental Group, we know that dental health is very important for your overall health, while having a great smile can make a big impact on your self confidence. You may know the importance of maintaining oral health, but feel that a trip to the dentist can sometimes feel like a nerve-racking, uneasy, and painful transaction. This is why we at LDG are dedicated to providing the highest quality dental care in the most welcoming, efficient, and compassionate manner possible. We have had a reputation of doing so for over 30 years and believe that you should not settle for anything less. Let us show you how pleasant a dental visit can be!

Matthew Cronan

Matthew Cronan, DMD

Dr. Cronan was born in the great state of Maine and received his Bachelors of Biology from the Honors College at the University of Maine. From there he began a gradual migration from the frozen north to the warmer southern climate. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Tufts Dental School in Boston, Massachusetts and after practicing in and around the city for a few years, he and his wife Shannon decided that they had experienced one too many snowstorms in Boston. During a family vacation to the Outer Banks, the couple stopped in Virginia Beach and fell in love with the active but laid-back coastal community. Dr. Cronan is a member of the American Dental Association and Virginia Dental Association. He actively pursues continuing education opportunities including oral appliance therapy for TMJ disorders and clear orthodontic Invisalign aligners to offer the best possible care for his patients. He believes Dentistry is a merger of art and medicine and is especially happy to help those who are reluctant or nervous to establish a positive dental home. When not treating patients at Lighthouse Dental, Dr. C can be found paddle-boarding, hiking, or playing at the beach with his wife, daughter, and two dogs Mr. Pickles and Cheerio.
