Dr. Luiza Kreuzer
Dr. Kreuzer was born and raised in the lively metropolitan city of Bucharest, the capital of Romania. She moved to Richmond, VA over two decades ago to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a dentist.

Dr. Kreuzer’s deep passion for dentistry and promoting health has led her to mentor dental students, that they might share in her passion. Most recently, this desire to inspire has manifested in her partnership with the Lucy Corr Free Dental Clinic and the VCU School of Dentistry. There Dr. Kreuzer instructs and oversees dental students during their rotations with geriatric patients. She has been awarded special appreciation from the VCU School of Dentistry, Department of Prosthodontics for her effort and dedication to her students.
Community service and enhancing the dental health of those in our community is of paramount importance to Dr. Kreuzer.

Her community service projects include; Give Kids a Smile, the Lucy Corr Dental Clinic, Missions of Mercy (MOM Project), and The Jamaica Project. She also enjoys visiting local schools and nursing homes to promote dental health awareness.
“One of my fondest memories as a dentist is when I traveled to Jamaica with the VCU, School of Dentistry. We helped so many people in the Trelawny Parish community. It was so inspiring to be able to work along side the dental students and the VCU faculty.” – Dr. Kreuzer on her experience as a volunteer for The Jamaica Project
Over the past decade, Dr. Kreuzer has firmly established herself in the dental community as a provider known for her clinical excellence, and high level of patient care; her expertise, clarity, skill, and judgement are often sought after by her dental peers.
