About us



Lena N. Turner, DMD


Dr. Turner, a native of Southern California, completed her undergraduate degree at Boston University. Hoping to diversify her educational experience, she studied International Relations with a focus on Cultural Anthropology and Politics. She continued her studies on the east coast attending the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Her belief that the oral cavity is the pathway to the body began her interest in Oral Medicine. Dr. Turner completed a 2 year Oral Medicine residency focused on diagnosing and treating orofacial pain and lesions, many of which were coincidental to systemic conditions of the body.

Dr. Turner is a member of the California Dental Association, American Dental Association and San Diego Dental Society. She enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, and participating in running events held throughout Southern California.
