Dr. Lerner's bio

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lerner "Dr. Lerner's odyssey toward holistic dentistry began before he even thought of becoming a dentist. As a child, he had many cavities that resulted in repair with mercury silver fillings. It seemed that at every checkup, there were more mercury silver fillings to be placed. Then, as many kids do, Dr. Lerner broke a tooth in an accident and it had to be removed. The orthodontist decided to close the space by bringing his teeth all the way over to the front from the right to the left. His teeth ended up looking straight but his jaw was crooked. Dr. Lerner later learned that his crooked jaw led to a variety of problems – including head and neck aches. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Lerner began TMJ treatment. When the treatment finally brought relief, Dr. Lerner began his journey toward understanding the mouth-body connection in earnest and soon learned that the bite can affect much more than your mouth. Dr. Lerner gained further insight in the form of back pain due to shoveling too much snow without a proper shovel. The excruciating pain led to a quest for a cure – a quest that did not end until he met a practitioner of Applied Kinesiology and Sacral-Occipital Technique. This practitioner gave him relief with his very first treatment. These treatments helped Dr. Lerner so much that he decided to begin his training in Holistic Dentistry. He soon became a practitioner of Applied Kinesiology and Sacral-Occipital Techniques. Although his back was feeling much better, Dr. Lerner still needed relief from lingering complications, which drove him to search for more answers. He found those answers in the office of a dentist trained in nutrition and acupuncture therapy. During a thorough analysis, this dentist discovered that Dr. David Lerner’s health issues and lack of energy were a result of childhood mercury silver fillings. Once the fillings were removed, Dr. Lerner had much more energy and he felt he was finally moving toward ideal health."

Had a good experience with both the hygienist and Dr. Lerner. They took me on time and then took their time checking my mouth. So far so good!

Jayne was beyond lovely! I don like going to the dentist, but she made me feel calm and taken care of. She was gentle and a great distraction from having my mouth open for so long! And Dr. Lerner was very kind as well.

I have seen many dentists in the past. In my experiences, they were almost always just trying to sell me on some product or procedure. They were never personable or friendly. Dr. Lerner and his staff are friendly, personable and very helpful! I always feel cared for and like Im the only person...more

Dr Lerner does not only attend to my teeth but my overall health. He has found issues in my sinuses and alignment of my body that has caused a numerous amount of issues that no one has ever noticed or addressed. It is helping me with my bite which is eliminating headaches, neck and back pains....more
