Gerald Regni, DMD
When Dr. Gerald Regni graduated from Temple University Dental School in 1986, he knew that he wanted to be a different kind of dentist. While opening his first office in downtown Philadelphia, he continued to pursue advanced education and training in dental implants, jaw disorders and dental restoration—extensive dental treatment to restore a person’s teeth and gums to full health.
His interest in holistic dentistry and the relationship between the body and dental treatments, led him to study in the areas of biological and holistic dentistry.
“I wanted to help the entire person,” says Dr. Regni. “I discovered that often a person would have a difficulty that was directly traceable to a problem in his mouth or teeth, but that would appear to be related to another part of the body entirely.”
The success Dr. Regni has had with his patients is remarkable. By testing for and using materials that are compatible with the body’s own biochemistry, he can eliminate allergic reactions to base metals or other substances commonly found in dental treatment. His process also allows him to eliminate the dangers of mercury toxicity in a patient by replacing amalgam (“silver”) fillings with biocompatible fillings.
And Dr. Regni does it all in office that his patients refer to as “pain-free and friendly.”
Always interested in using advanced technology to help his patients, Dr. Regni has spent over 500 hours in continuing education classes, including classes in TMJD, orthotic (external support) appliance therapy, dental implants, endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, post-trauma therapy, contact reflex analysis (CRA), as well as general practice development and management.
