The first thing you need to know about Dr. Crossley is being an orthodontist wasn’t his dream job. No, Dr. Crossley wanted to be Batman. So much so that he wore a Batman outfit for two straight years as a child. He’s still getting over it.
The most important thing you need to know about Dr. Crossley is that he doesn’t compromise things that matter. Things like integrity, honesty, and treating others the way they want to be treated. That’s why he’ll only recommend the same care he would give his own family.
The thing you want to know is that Dr. Crossley is super cool. Not as cool as his celebrity-ish wife, @JaneneCrossley, but he’s learned to deal with it. He’s personable, down-to-earth, and moderately funny. Not comedian funny, but serviceable.
Family is a big deal to Dr. Crossley. To prove it, he once had 4 children under the age of 5. He loves to brag about that, but they had twins, so it’s technically cheating. When Dr. Crossley isn’t at the office, he goes by a different name. Dad. You might see him frantically trying to stop his son from scoring in the wrong goal. Or, he’s re-reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar for the hundredth time. He’s part of bath time, night time, movie time, trampoline time, and “I had a bad dream” time. #family.
When he’s not Dr. Crossley or Dad, he’s just Aaron. And when he’s just Aaron, his favorite thing to do is hang out with Janene. That is, if he can pry her away from their cute, but needy offspring. He also loves to play tennis, ping-pong, and go mountain biking (without the mountains, because it’s Texas). And he’s on a lifelong quest to find the restaurant with the very best Mac and Cheese.
Dr. Crossley was born and bred in the great state of Texas. After his freshman year of college at BYU (Don’t worry, he had a big Texas flag in his dorm room window), he spent 2 years as a volunteer missionary in Alaska. It was there that he experienced something called “winter”. He even had a pet moose!
After leaving Alaska, Dr. Crossley finished his undergraduate degree at BYU in Exercise Science. He was then accepted into Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas.
As if 8 years of intense schooling wasn’t enough, Dr. Crossley signed on for another 3 years to specialize as an orthodontist. In a pool of over 300 top Dentists, he was selected as 1 of 6 residents to attend Baylor’s elite Orthodontic program. He is trained in the most cutting edge orthodontic techniques and technologies.
All this to say that Dr. Crossley is a really, really good orthodontist who will take exceptional care of you, your family, and your smile.
