Leonard Kundel, D.M.D. is a 1999 graduate of Tufts University School of Dentistry.Following a year of residency at Montefiore Hospital and several assosiateships, he established a private practice in Stamford, Connecticut. He has focused his expertise towards advanced aesthetic rehabilitation, comprehensive periodontal management, facial pain, TMD/TMJ therapy, sleep dentistry and general dentistry.
Due to his awareness of the mouth/body connection, Dr. Kundel practices an aggressive state-of-the-art approach toward treating chronic oral inflammatory diseases known to increase risk factors for common medical problems. As the current medical/legal standards-of-care shift to mandate multi-disciplinary management of compromising medical conditions, Dr. Kundel has created strong alliances with, and works closely with many physicians in the regional medical community to help them elevate their care of patients to these new standards. Dr. Kundel’s purpose is to build a bridge between the medical and dental communities to benefit patients, and to help doctors avoid the problems associated with failure to diagnose and treat important medical diseases related to the presence of chronic oral infections, the emerging “Oral – Systemic Connection.”
In the recent years, Dr. Kundel has gone through several paradigm shifts that allowed him to treat people more effectively not just intra-orally but systemically as well. This change is not possible, however, without the input of a patient’s physician. It is being shown again and again that collaborative efforts between specialists brings the best result. In the case of dentist/physician collaboration, the results are practically miraculous.
