Dr. H. Alexander “Alex” Crisp is a true North Carolina native. Dr. Crisp was born and raised in Burlington, NC, where he graduated from Walter M. Williams High School. While there, he was first chair bass in the county orchestra, and he also earned all-state honors playing football as a strong safety. He then attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for his undergraduate studies, where he majored in Exercise and Sports Science. While at UNC, he also played linebacker on the varsity football team. Dr. Crisp walked-on to the football team and was awarded a full scholarship in his senior year. Although Dr. Crisp loved playing football, he soon gave it up to pursue his dream of becoming a dentist. After graduating from UNC, he went on to attend East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine, where he obtained his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree and graduated as a member of the inaugural class. During his second year of dental school, Dr. Crisp decided that he wanted to become an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. Through hard work, determination, and mentorship, he propelled himself to the top of his class, and graduated Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) Honor Society. He then went on to complete the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. While in residency at MUSC, Dr. Crisp discovered that he has a passion for teaching. His desire to become an educator led him to his current position as Assistant Professor at the East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine, and Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Dr. Crisp is a member of several professional organizations. He is a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), and a member of the American Dental Association, NC Dental Society, and Old North State Dental Society. Dr. Crisp is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. This is the highest level of certification achievable within Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. When Dr. Crisp is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family; his wife, Jennifer, & his two daughters, Olivia and Norah. Dr. Crisp is a very hard worker, but he also realizes that he is very fortunate. He credits much of his success to his strong family support system. He believes that he has been able to achieve success by standing on the shoulders of those who came before him. Dr. Crisp is very excited to join the UDA team.
