Alvin H. Danenberg, DDS (Bluffton Center for Dentistry)

Dr. Danenberg divides his 42-year career as a periodontist (gum disease specialist) into two periods: before and after the laser coupled with the dynamics of ancestral nutrition. The laser-based LANAP® protocol and the importance of ancestral nutrition, he believes, are revolutionizing the treatment of gum disease. LANAP is an acronym for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure and requires no scalpels or sutures.
Dr. Danenberg received advanced training in ancestral nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 2013. In July 2014, he received a CFMP (Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner) designation from Functional Medicine University and also launched his website, In September 2014, he received the designation of Certified Primal Blueprint Expert.
In July 2015, Dr. Danenberg was appointed to the faculty of the College of Integrative Medicine. He created, wrote, and recorded the Integrative Periodontal Module for the College’s 300-hour certified program titled, "Certified Integrative Healthcare Practitioner Program", which commenced January 2016.
His new book, "Hunger for Health", will be published in the near future.
