About Dr. Lerner
Dr. Lerner has been mercury free since 1983 and takes a Whole Body (Holistic) approach to dentistry that tends to the health of the mouth in relation to the whole person. Our innovative approach to dental care bridges the gap between modern dental technology and ageless traditions of natural and safe healing protocols.

As your Oral Health Doctor I believe that his new approach to medicine embraces both modern science and knowledge drawn from the world's great traditions of natural healing.
A serious study of these traditions reveals certain truths that can be applied to promote health and well being. These basic principles form the foundation for all Holistic Health Practices. Amongst these is the need for healthful nutrition, the elimination of toxins, and the maintenance of physical, mental and energetic balance.
In light of the above, our Center for Holistic Dentistry offers an innovative approach oral health. When applied to the practice of Holistic Dental Medicine the principles of natural healing may be stated as follows:
•Proper nutrition for the prevention and reversal of degenerative dental disease;
•Avoidance and /or the elimination of toxins from dental materials or infection;
•Prevention and treatment of dental malocclusion (physical imbalance); and
•Prevention and/ or elimination of energetic (electromagnetic) disturbances.
