ABOUT DR. LOU TROVATO

Raised in Richboro, Pennsylvania, Dr. Lou is a 1974 graduate of Council Rock High School, 1978 graduate of La Salle University, 1982 graduate of Temple University Kornberg School of Dental Medicine, and 2010 graduate - as a Board-Certified NMD - of the American College of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry.  He shares his free time with family and friends.  He travels frequently for postgraduate education, enjoying opportunities for innovation in his dental art.  Dr. Lou has trained with the nation's foremost experts in integrative dental medicine, oxygen-ozone therapy, cosmetic dentistry, and neuromuscular occlusal health and has himself lectured on advanced topics to other general dentists and alternative health practitioners - especially on craniomandibular health and holistic, health-oriented dentistry.

Dr. Lou is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantology, the American Academy of General Dentistry,1 and the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain.2  The distinction of three Fellowships ranks Dr. Lou among less than 1% of the dentists of America.  He is a Board Certified NMD, and he is SMART-certified and accredited by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology for mercury-safe amalgam replacement.

1The Academy of General Dentistry is considered one of the nation's premier organizations for general dentists, and a general dentist who has been made a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry is recognized by other general dentists as a leader and an example in the field.  To earn a Fellowship, Dr. Trovato completed over 500 hours of postgraduate education in five years of continuous membership in the AGD and passed a comprehensive 400-question written exam.       2A Fellowship from the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain indicates the extent of Dr. Trovato's studies, skills and experience in the field of temporomandibular joint health. To earn a fellowship, Dr. Lou completed five years of course work, an extensive mini-residency, rigorous case presentations to a panel of Fellows, and a four-hour comprehensive written exam. 

 

 

  


Dr. Trovato's life philosophy is to give of himself freely, to stretch his boundaries constantly, to be intensely present in everything in which he participates, to laugh often, to promote harmony, and to be aware of and grateful for the simple gifts of life.
