About Dr. Al Danenberg

I go by “Dr. Al”. I’m a periodontist and was in private practice for 44 years. I incorporated ancestral nutrition & lifestyle with my leading-edge laser protocol to treat periodontal disease. In September 2018, I retired from the active practice of treating individual patients. However, I still consult with patients all over the world virtually regarding nutrition, lifestyle, oral and overall health, and the importance of a healthy gut and immune system. I also discuss my Unconventional Cancer Journey since I was diagnosed with incurable bone marrow cancer in September 2018 and was given only 3-6 months to live. I rejected all chemotherapy, and I am thriving today at the tender young age of 73. “Who’da thunk it?”

I received advanced training in evolutionary nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine. In June 2014, I received my Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP) designation as well as my certification as a Certified Primal Health Coach. In 2015, I was appointed to the faculty of the College of Integrative Medicine and created the college’s integrative periodontal teaching module. Then, in April 2017, I earned the designation of “ADAPT Trained Health Professional” from Kresser Institute. In July 2017, Elektra Press released my book, “Crazy-Good Living”, which is based on ancestral nutrition and lifestyle.

On April 14, 2020, I was appointed the Chair of the Periodontal Committee for the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM). I also created the Certification Course offered by the IABDM, which will bestow the designation of Certified Biological Nutritional Dental Professional after successful completion of the program. This is the first certification of its kind.
