WHO WE ARE
Gerald Regni, Jr., 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 (creating new teeth to replace missing teeth), jaw disorders, and dental restoration (extensive dental treatment to restore a person’s teeth and gums to full health).
His interest in the effects of dental treatment on the entire body–and the effects of the entire body on dental treatment–led him to extensive 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 that Dr. Regni has had with his patients is remarkable. By testing for and using materials in dental treatment that are compatible with the body’s own biochemistry, he can eliminate problems caused by allergic reactions to base metals or other substances found commonly in use in dental treatment. And he can eliminate the dangers of mercury toxicity in a patient by replacing amalgam (“silver”) fillings with biocompatible fillings.
And Dr. Regni does it all in his 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.
He and his friendly, competent staff are located in downtown Philadelphia for your convenience.
