Dr. David Lehman

Meet Dr. Lehman

Dr. David A. Lehman graduated from Concord High School, Goshen College, and earned his D.D.S. and Master’s Degree from Orthodontics at Indiana University School of Dentistry (IUSD).

At IUSD he was elected to Omicron Kappa Upsilon (the National Dental Honor Society) and given the Maynard  D. Hine award for the Outstanding Fourth Year Student for Professional Attitude and Habits in the Dental Class of 1987. In his Orthodontic Class he received the award for Clinical Excellence in 1991.

Dr. Lehman has been creating beautiful smiles and helping patients feel better about their self-image in Goshen for over 20 years. Some valuable preparation for relating with children came during a year off college when he went to serve as a care worker for behavior problem boys at Frontier Boys Village in Colorado. This resulted in the habit of calling each patient by name every appointment, and asking at least one question about them.

Another life detour studying architecture for a year served to whet his interest in art and beauty. Understanding the principles of design contributes to his reputation for excellent finish detailing.

Dr. Lehman enjoys sports and still holds the Concord High School record in track, running the 800 in 1:55.5. After coaching three daughters in volleyball, he coached volleyball at a collegiate level for three years. He has been married to Jan for over 30 years, and together they like to travel, bike, take walks at Ox Bow and visit their son, daughters and grandchildren in Indianapolis, Cleveland and Birmingham.

He also enjoys building custom furniture and was featured in Fine Woodworking magazine. Currently he is building a 20′ wooden speedboat out of mahogany and cedar, from his original design. You can visit lehmancraft.com to see more of his designs.

“I was always self-conscious about my smile on pictures, so I usually smiled with my mouth shut. Now I smile (showing my teeth) all the time!”
