Dr. Leone continued her education receiving her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from UNC-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry where she served as Vice President of her class for 3 years. She went on to complete her specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at Columbia University/New YorkPresbyterian Hospital in New York, NY.
