Barry S. Kayne, DDS
Dr. Kayne received his D.D.S. from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in Columbus, Ohio in 1969. He completed the advanced dental education program in orthodontics and periodontics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia in 1979. Dr. Kayne is one of only a very small number of dentists in the United States who is a specialist in both orthodontics and periodontics. He has extensive training in dental implant therapy and has been placing dental implants since 1989.
Having served his country in the United States Navy, Dr. Kayne practiced general dentistry in Yokosuka, Japan from 1969 to 1971. He also practiced general dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from 1971 to 1976. After completing his orthodontic and periodontal program, he taught full-time at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry before starting his specialty practice in Delaware in 1981.
Professional Teaching Appointments
Dr. Kayne has been actively involved with dental education. In addition to his current part-time faculty appointment at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry, Dr. Kayne has also taught at Temple University School of Dentistry and at the Veterans Hospital of Philadelphia. He lectures on a variety of topics, including periodontics, dental implants, and the treatment of craniofacial pain.

Dr. Kayne is committed to treating you as an individual. He listens carefully to your questions and concerns, and thoroughly explains treatment options. He prides himself on having a leading edge periodontal practice that includes the surgical placement of dental implants. His goal is to help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime.
Dr. Kayne strongly believes that the highest level of patient care is achieved by collaborative diagnosis and close team work with his referring doctors. It is his position that both periodontal and dental implant care are prosthetically driven, beginning with the restorative end in mind. When Dr. Kayne was asked why he felt the practice had been so successful, he replied:
"I think that all of us, my staff and I, try to live by our mission statement which is to treat each patient with the same kindness and respect that we would give our own family." ~ Dr. Kayne
