She attended Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, where she earned her DMD degree in 2009, graduating with high honors and placing third in her graduating class.  Dr. Crespi was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society based upon scholarship and character in the dental profession.  Dr. Crespi went on to complete her residency at Stony Brook University in Long Island, NY, and is board certified.

An important part of Dr. Crespi’s training is her extensive hospital experience in anesthesia and emergency care.  Her training includes working with special needs patients and medically compromised children.  Dr. Crespi practices specific behavior management and calming techniques in her personalized approach when treating patients.  This ensures that patients will have a positive pediatric dental experience.

Dr. Crespi’s selection of pediatric dentistry as her specialty came naturally.  Her father and mentor is the noted pediatric dentist, Dr. Paul Crespi, who is the Program Director for Pediatric Dentistry at Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York.  Her mother, a teacher, inspired her to work with children.
