Meet Dr. Gregory A. Lehman

About Dr. Lehman

Dr. Lehman’s inspiration to pursue oral surgery came from his father, who was also an oral surgeon. His passion for oral and maxillofacial surgery drove him to become involved in research, and he later gave a presentation in Washington, DC, at the National Institute of Health. Dr. Lehman continues to strive for excellence both as a surgeon as an individual, and he greatly enjoys the opportunity to give back to the dental community. He is passionate about implant dentistry, and he serves as a continuing education instructor for his peers in the community, guiding them through the most current dental implant concepts and techniques.
