Born in Argentina to a poor family, Dr. Damian Blum’s parents immigrated to the United States when he was only ten years old in order to escape discrimination and persecution and to give their children the chance at a better life. Although his parents only had a sixth grade education, their wisdom, love and compassion inspired him to become the first in his family to achieve a post-graduate education.

Dr. Blum began his journey toward becoming a dentist as a volunteer at the Sinai Hospital Dental Clinic. He later graduated from UMBC with a BA degree in Biology / Psychology and went on to receive his DMD degree from Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine in 1983. In that same year, he opened the doors of his first private practice in Baltimore and, in 1987, opened a new practice in Ellicott City. Dr. Blum has studied under many of the world's top clinicians for the past 35 years and, because of the passion and calling to serve others that he received from his parents, he believes that with the opportunity to learn comes the obligation to pay it forward. Dr. Blum attends training and conferences year-round, sometimes as a student and other times as the instructor. He is also a past Clinical Instructor at the University of Maryland Dental School.

Once Dr. Blum discovered the relationship between dental problems, periodontal problems, orofacial pain, TMD, headaches, systemic inflammatory diseases and problems with the patient’s airway and breathing, he began deeply researching the connection between systemic health, airway blockages and sleep-disordered breathing. Once equipped with this knowledge, there was no turning back - it became his purpose to help his patients and to teach other dentists and allied health professionals about airway problems and sleep-related breathing disorders - so they could also help their patients. At the BCDA March 26th Dinner Meeting, Dr. Damian Blum will be sharing this knowledge with us! Discover the oral and systemic signs and symptoms associated with obstructive sleep apnea. Then learn - now that we see it, what do we do with it? Understand how using oral appliance therapy can increase the health of your patients as well as the health of your practice.
