Part 2:

Dr. Tony Cruz-Mcleod is a native of Brooklyn NY. He graduated college from Fairleigh Dickinson in 2007, enrolled and graduated from UMDNJ in 2012. After spending an extra year in dental school due to breaking his arm, one could say that he is not a stranger to adversity.

Dr. Tony spent one year GPR at Kings County Medical Center in 2013 and he worked in over 11 different dental offices as an associate and has owned his own FFS practice for the last 4 years.

During his residency he had an affinity to the highly phobic patients and pediatrics focusing on gentle techniques and relationship building.

Outside of the office Dr. Tony enjoys exercising, coaching local football and basketball teams and spending time with family and friends.
