About Dr. Kundel

“Your mouth is connected to your body and so it should be treated as such.”

I am Dr. Lenny Kundel, a proud 1999 graduate of Tufts University School of Dentistry. Following a year of residency at Montefiore Hospital and several associateships, I have established private practices in Stamford, Connecticut and New York City.

My motto is “Your mouth is connected to your body and so it should be treated as such.” While it is not always possible to completely avoid intervention, it is certainly possible to be kind about it. Education of adults and children is my essential task and responsibility. I spend time helping my patients decide what is right for them. Proper home care is the single most important factor that determines if teeth will be around for a lifetime. I want for your child to have the tools necessary to grow up with a healthy mouth and body.

My mission for patients is to walk away from dental appointment knowing more. You will know how to help yourself and your child have healthy beautiful smile and a healthier and stronger body.

Besides general gentle dentistry, I am addressing the problems that have to do with:

  • Breastfeeding difficulties
  • Growth and development in children
  • Sleep-disordered breathing in children and adults
  • Jaw joint related disorders
  • Chronic oral inflammatory diseases known to increase risk factors for common medical problems

I have been studying Oral – Systemic connection for nearly two decades. It has been my passion from day one. My path has taken me from being an orthodontic patient, and, as a result, to a TMJ patient, to a dentist that helps people with jaw pain. The understanding of connection between mouth and body is a foundation for my practice.

It is this understanding that empowers me to assist moms and infants with breastfeeding as well as help children with growth and development. The ALF approach is the most “whole body” friendly dental treatment with benefits that last a lifetime. Building bridges between medical and dental communities brings results for our patients that were not possible before.

As a dentist in Stamford, CT, I try to stay on the cusp of current knowledge by being member of organizations that provide invaluable information and encourage forward thinking.

To be of service is a meaningful, gratifying, and fulfilling experience that begins anew every single day. My debt of gratitude is to my many mentors who spent the time and energy to teach and share the information. I want to thank all my patients who put their trust in me and propel me forward to continue advancing.

This is bar none, the BEST most educated and well versed dentist out there. First of all, his staff is so attentive and accommodating, Kathy, you are the best! And Dr. Kundel does only necessary, quick and concise and long lasting dental work. You will not be disappointed. Make the switch to a true holistic practitioner.

Dr Kundel & his staff are a pleasure! Whenever I have an appointment, I go knowing that everyone will be upbeat & helpful. Dr Kundel doesn’t flood me with dental terms but tells me the details in a way that I can understand. I also enjoy the soft, relaxing music & light, airy office space.

Dr. Kundel made our 5-year-old feel at ease. He filled 3 cavities without shots or gas, which is why we chose him and his practice. They are ethical and professional. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kundel and his staff are the best; caring and professional yet lots of light easy conversation and humor. I come away with a feeling like I’ve been out to lunch with old friends rather than at a dental appointment.

Dr. Kundel is friendly, capable, and straight forward. Procedures are presented concisely, providing information and inviting discussion. Very professional.
