Dr. Damian Blum has trained and studied under many of the top clinicians in the world for the past 35 years. He began his journey toward becoming a dentist as a volunteer at the Sinai Hospital Dental Clinic and eventually graduated from UMBC with a BA in Biology and Psychology. He went on to study at Boston University’s School of Dental Medicine, graduating with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree in 1983. In that same year, he opened the doors of his first private practice in Baltimore and later opened the doors of a new practice in 1987 in Ellicott City.

He discovered and understood the ever-present relationship between dental problems, periodontal problems, orofacial pain, TMD, headaches, systemic inflammatory diseases and problems with the patient’s airway and breathing. Once he started researching and digging deeper into the connection between systemic health, airway blockages and sleep-disordered breathing, there was no turning back. It became a sole 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.

“Building health is not about competition – it’s about community.” Through his clinical practice, lectures and workshops, Dr. Blum has made it his quest to spread the word about the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders.

In recent years, Dr. Blum has been lecturing and training other dentists around the country in improving patients’ airway, sleep-disordered breathing and in alternative therapy for those who cannot wear a CPAP machine. He also has spoken and trained other dentists in the therapeutic and cosmetic uses of Botox® to help with migraines, TMD and other orofacial pain.
