Meet Dr. Lehnes

A Passion for Smiles

I love creating smiles that are more beautiful and thus more frequent. Few things in the world are more expressive than a smile, and I take pride in transforming reluctant and timid smiles into ones that radiate happiness and self-confidence.

I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to meet and care for such a tremendous group of people. Each of my patients is important to me. Each person has a unique story; I love hearing that story and sharing a part of their life with them. Whether I’m treating an adolescent and watching them grow and mature along with their new smile, or working with an adult who is finally getting the healthy, incredible smile they’ve always wanted, I’m helping them. It’s an amazing experience.

Because of my patients, I look forward to coming to the office each day: I know I will spend my time having fascinating conversations, laughing, and strengthening relationships with great people.

Personal Life

I’m a native of Chester, NJ who now calls Randolph my home. My wife Stephanie and I have 4 wonderful children, Carina, twins Lilliana and Christian, and Josephine. We have a new addition to the family, a dog named Rascal. When I’m not working, I spend as much time as possible with my family and friends. I enjoy golfing and frequent trips to the NJ shore and I’m also a devoted sports fan.
