He received his dental degree from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in 2009, where he was recognized for outstanding achievement in the department of Orofacial Pain. Dr. Crystal is licensed in Enteral Sedation by the New Jersey Board of Dentistry after completing extensive training at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center.
