What Our Patients Say


I feel very fortunate to have such an excellent team of dental experts in Northern Baltimore County. Hereford Dental Health is a top-notch practice; from the inviting and comfortable waiting room atmosphere, to the warm and friendly staff and the extremely clean treatment rooms. Dr. Longenecker’s practice is by far the place to go for high quality, gentle dental care for the entire family. I’ve been Dr. Longenecker’s patient for over 15 years; now, I take my three children to him, too. The staff all work well with children. I love my white healthy teeth and Hereford Dental Health gives me a lot to smile about!



A few years ago I moved to the “Hereford Zone”. I found being out in the country had its perks but travelling to appointments could be a bit of a distance and sometimes a challenge. I was in search of a new dentist and decided to start looking closer to my new home. I was referred to Dr. Craig Longenecker at Hereford Dental Health.

We all know that “everyone hates to go to the dentist”. However, I have found at Hereford Dental Health, you are treated by happy, professional people from the front desk to the dental chair. I’ve had extensive work done from restoring old fillings and crowns, to replacing bad veneers. I’m pleased to say Dr. Longenecker has done an amazing job. I am 100% satisfied.

After going through several other dentists over the past 25 years in Baltimore, I am here to stay. If I ever move away from the “Hereford Zone”, I will travel to see Dr. Longenecker.

I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing Craig Longenecker for over fifteen years both personally and professionally. We have seen Craig and Liz start both their family as well as start his dental practice and both have been brought into fruition with great care, love and due diligence. Craig and his associates/staff have always treated his patients as if they were part of an extended family, you can feel the bond as soon as you walk in the door… and there is always the extra care to make sure not only that you understand what procedures are necessary and why but also what those procedures involve and making sure you know what to expect. While there is complete professionalism, there is also no shortage of laughter which serves to make me feel right at home in his chair.

Who likes going to the dentist?  No one.  However, Craig and his team have changed that .  Their commitment to excellence, attention to detail and caring bedside manner are delivered in a warm and friendly environment.  If you like to smile and want to hang on to your teeth, regular dental checkups are a necessity – and the Hereford Dental experience makes it easy to follow through.

My family and  I have been patients of Dr. Craig for over 10 years. I have total confidence in him and his entire staff. Going for check-ups there is always a positive, enjoyable experience. An enjoyable experience at the dentist? Yes!

The receptionists, the hygienists, and the doctor are always kind, cordial, interested in me and my family as people, and dedicated to and passionate about giving us the best dental care possible.

I have a daughter with special needs and the staff is wonderful with her. Recently, my parents, both in their eighties, decided to look for a dentist closer to their home in the Hereford Zone. They moved to the Zone in 1972 but had continued going to their dentist in Ruxton until the drive became too inconvenient for them. They also are totally satisfied with the care they receive from Dr. Craig and his wonderful staff.



Hereford Dental Health provides the most thorough dental care I’ve ever had. Feeling confident in the care I receive is invaluable. What really sets them apart is the amount of patience everyone at the office has. I never feel rushed; whether I’m there for a cleaning or otherwise, they take time to explain options and walk through procedures. Even though I’ve moved away and it is no longer convenient to visit Dr. Craig, I can’t imagine going anywhere else.
