He was recently awarded Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry and served on its Board of Directors for several years. He was also given an honorary Fellowship in the Academy of Dentists International.

Dr. Blumenthal’s philosophy of practice is to treat his patients in the same way that he would treat his brother or sister, his mother or father.

He starts any conversation in the dental chair by finding out what brought the patient in and how he can be of help. All treatment decisions will thus be made together with the patient and all questions and treatment alternatives will be discussed before commencing with treatment.

Patients can expect that they will always be treated in a friendly and respectful way.
