Dr. Bloom earned his degree in dental medicine from Tufts Dental School in 1978. From a commitment to his own intensive Hands-On training (with over 3,500 hours in advanced training) he’s become a master dentist in all aspects of restorative, aesthetics, non-invasive solutions, TMJ pain and dysfunction, headache pain and implant treatment. He is an alumnus of three of the most prestigious training centers in the country: the Peter Dawson Institute of Advanced Dental Studies, the Seattle Institute of Advanced Dental Education, and the L.D. Pankey Institute. In 2000, he was one of seventy-five dentists from around the world selected for a visiting faculty position at the L.D. Pankey Institute—an elite distinction. Once a year he takes time out of practice to teach his expertise in TMJ dysfunction and treatment, aesthetic dentistry & smile design, reconstructive and implant dentistry using the latest in digital technologies, and the most conservative treatments using bonded composite, and porcelain.
Mastery in Composite/Non-Invasive Aesthetics—Dr Bloom’s love for aesthetic dentistry began with his association with The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), where he’s been an active member since 1996. Through the AACD, he was introduced to the three world leaders in composite dentistry—Newton Fahl DMD, Pascal Magne DMD and world acclaimed lab artisan and Didier Dietschi DMD, dedicating weeks a year for his own training though their hands-on intensives.
*Trainings in 2021—three-day intensive on TMJ/TMD (Pankey Institute-Miami Fla.) and four-day session on mastering composite aesthetics (IDEA Center-S.F.). In August 2022, Dr Bloom participated in a four day intensive with Didier Dietschi DMD at the I.D.E.A Center (San Francisco). Dr Dietschi is one three masters in the art of composite aesthetics (a passion of Dr Bloom’s). When you meet Dr Boom you’ll feel his passion for smile aesthetics. March 23-25-2023—Dr Bloom attended a three aesthetics meeting on advances in non-invasive treatment using composite technologies. The meeting was led by Newton Fahl DMD — Iguazu Falls, Brazil.
Mastery in TMJ/TMD and All Occlusal Issues—Dr.Bloom was trained at the Pankey Institute and now teaches the fundamentals of occlusion and treatment of bite issues. His practice of non-invasive therapies—Quick Splint, custom designed bite splint, harmonizing the bite (through equilibrating) and the MLS Cold Laser offer long-lasting pain relief. If you have structural complications (given trauma, car accident…) Dr Bloom will refer you to an ENT specialist but the majority of joint and jaw pain are muscle spasms caused by a bite issue and respond beautifully to non-invasive therapies. In Jan 2022, Dr Bloom particiapted in a five-day advanced intensive on treating complex TMD issues and all types of orofacial pain.
Now that you know about his skills and talents you should also know is the real deal—loves to chat about life and wants to know all about you. He has a great sense of humor— loves music, dogs, travel, skiing, biking, good food, wine and tequila. He’s also a fine art photographer. He took all the gorgeous photos in our office and loves nothing more than getting lost with his camera— another one of his passions.
