Originally from Pennsylvania, Dr. Lori Cardellino graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry in 1992 after attending Towson University on a basketball scholarship. In 1993 she began her own state-of-the-art holistic dental practice in Bel Air, Maryland where she was one of the first in the nation to use lasers in dentistry. She sold her east coast practice in 2006 and relocated to Ventura where she has been in private practice focusing on biological holistic dentistry while continuing her integrative medical education graduating from the Integrative Biologic Dental Medicine where she was awarded the Board Certified Integrative Biological Dentist degree.
Her progressive education formed her practice philosophy around removing all toxic materials and infection from the mouth and restoring the mouth to a cranially stable functional position. She works with a network of physicians, naturopathic physicians, chiropractors, and other healthcare professionals as a pioneer in the field of Chirodontics. This groundbreaking form of treatment includes a whole-body orientation of health care by evaluating the structure, nutrition and energetics of the body to restore optimum health. She also has achieved full certification of the use of BIOPAK, the computerized analysis of head pain, and correct function of the dental system.
