Dr. Cruz-McLeod received his bachelor’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. From there, he attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (now known as Rutgers School of Dental Medicine) and completed a general practice residency at Kings County Hospital Center in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. During his residency, Dr. Cruz-McLeod encountered hundreds of clients with various dental phobias. He has dedicated himself to implementing gentle and efficient techniques to dispel these fears. Dr. Cruz-McLeod’s favorite procedures are aesthetic cases (Invisalign® aligners, veneers, gold inlays and onlays, etc.) and pediatric dentistry.
Outside of dentistry, he enjoys exercising, coaching local football and basketball teams, and spending time with family and friends. Since relocating to the Hudson Valley, Dr. Cruz-McLeod has enjoyed visiting local landmarks and experiencing everything the area has to offer.
