Betsy Crosswell, DMD


Betsy Ann Crosswell received her B.A. in microbiology from Douglass College, Rutgers University in 1975. After graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina with her Doctorate in Dental Medicine in 1983, she completed a General Practice Residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Syracuse, NY in 1985.

After relocating with her husband to Connecticut in 1987, she joined Dr. Stanley Apter in his Middletown office. She bought the practice from him in 1989 and they continued to practice together until his retirement in 2000. She is proud to have assembled a nationally recognized, first class dental team and leading edge technology in order to provide quality dental care in a caring environment.

Dr. Crosswell is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Connecticut State Dental Association, and is a past president of the Middlesex County Dental Society.

With an ongoing interest in continuing education, she regularly attends seminars on current topics in dentistry. She has received her certificate for The Concept of Complete Dentistry Series from the Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Study. This series of courses focuses on idealizing occlusion for long-term stability of the teeth, comfort of the TMJ and the masticatory system, and enhanced esthetics.

Having completed her coursework for basic laser training, Dr. Crosswell has earned her license to perform LANAP™ (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedures). This breakthrough laser therapy revolutionizes the treatment of periodontal (gum) disease.

Dr. Crosswell resides in East Hampton with her husband, Al. They love to travel, play golf and scuba dive. Lately, she has returned to the piano, thoroughly enjoying her lessons and practice time.
