Allison Cross, DMD
Dr. Allison Cross grew up in Falmouth, MA on picturesque Cape Cod, or “the Cape” as she
affectionately refers to it (just ask her to show you her “arm map”). She began her journey into
dentistry in 2007 as a dental hygienist, graduating from the Fones School of Dental Hygiene at
the University of Bridgeport. Inspired to broaden her abilities to care for her patients she was
driven to pursue her dental degree. She returned to school while continuing to work as a hygienist,
receiving a BS degree in Biology from Ramapo College of New Jersey and her DMD degree from the
Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. She then completed a one year General Practice Residency at
Mountainside Hospital. There she received extensive training in general dentistry while becoming
proficient at handling dental emergencies, treating patients in the operating room, and providing
dental treatment to individuals with developmental disabilities.
Although Dr. Cross has lived in NJ for quite some time, she hasn’t forgotten her roots. She loves her
visits home to her family, summertime Cape Cod Baseball League games and homemade ice cream.
Dr. Cross will tell you that her foundation in dental hygiene taught her to treat the whole patient, not
just teeth. She recognizes that behind every procedure is a person--a life--and her goal is to make
that life just a little happier and a little healthier.
