Not every dentist can boast of being a guest on the Today television show. Dr. Gerald Lorino, DMD, of Fort Myers Laser Dentistry, can. Lorino got to shine as the emcee of a Tooth or False game show where tooth trivia questions presented to Kathy Lee Gifford and Jenna Bush Hager focused on dental health with queries about brushing, flossing and gum disease. In June, Lorino and his wife, Dr. Suzanne Lorino, also a DMD, brought their experience, skills and holistic approach to dentistry to Southwest Florida as the new owners of Fort Myers Laser Dentistry. Along with associate Diane Deacon, DDS, they are each accredited with the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and offer general, cosmetic and implant dental services with a holistic approach to promote overall health and wellness.

The biologic or holistic dental treatment approach that considers teeth as an integral piece of the body and overall health, is a highly suitable option for patients seeking to avoid the possible risk of acute toxicity from traditional processes. “Many patients choose a holistic dentist because it fits with their own philosophy about health care,” says Gerald. “They appreciate the extra consideration given to their complete wellness and the focus on preventing future problems, not just immediate issues, along with learning how a healthy mouth ties into a healthy body, so they can confidently apply that knowledge to their own daily routine.” 

Gerald built a reputation for his expertise in reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry through meticulous attention to detail and extensive training, combined with a caring and gentle demeanor. A top practitioner of advanced cosmetic dentistry, he has treated individuals with severe dental reconstruction needs, as well as those wanting a Hollywood smile. His passion for clinical excellence is driven by continuous advanced dental training from the world’s leading educators in dentistry, as well as his extensive training at the prestigious Palm Beach Aesthetic institute.

Suzanne, who takes pride in creating every individual’s personalized smile, is committed to delivering the highest-quality dental care. She travels throughout the country each year advancing her training in world-class techniques in cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. Her comprehensive approach in treating the total health of her patients not only treats symptoms, but also corrects the causes.

Gerald received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Lehigh University, where he graduated at the top of his class, and earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Suzanne completed her undergraduate study at Rutgers University and went on to earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where she received numerous awards and recognitions.
