Dr. Blum has trained and studied under many of the top clinicians in the world for the past 28 years. He began his journey toward becoming a dentist after graduating from UMBC in 1979, with a BA in Biology and Psychology. He then studied at Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine, graduating with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree in 1983, and in the same year opened the doors of his first private practice in Baltimore. Desiring to open a dental practice in his home community, he finally opened the doors of a new practice in 1987, this practice in Ellicott City.
Passionate about education and sharing knowledge, Dr. Blum believes that if someone has the opportunity to learn something, they should pay it forward. While the Maryland state board requires dentists to have 30 credits of continuing education courses over each two year period, Dr. Blum attends trainings and conferences year-round and continues to average well over 100 continuing education credits each year alone. He is also a past Clinical Instructor University of Maryland Dental School, and has recently undergone training and certification at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry Certification.
