“Dr. Blum changed my life. I was always ashamed of my teeth and would never smile for pictures. Dr. Blum changed all of that for me. He straightened my teeth with Invisalign and vastly improved their appearance with cosmetic dentistry. Now everyone tells me what a great smile I have and I owe it all to him.”
-Jay Rosenthal

“I never thought I would look forward to going to the dentist; but now that I’ve discovered Dr. Blum, I actually enjoy coming to his office. Dr. Blum takes pride in his work, and his ability to create a beautiful smile is extraordinary. He and his staff have created an office atmosphere that is compassionate, fun and nurturing. After all, in how many dentists offices can you have a cappuccino, get a foot massage and have your teeth whitened all in one appointment! I love Dr. Blum, Brenda the hygienist, Rachel and Pete his dental techs, and all the other people that make having your teeth drilled a little more pleasant.”

“I have gone to many different dentists in my life and there’s no one who compares to Dr. Blum. Whether it be his calming voice, joking personality, fantastic dental technique; he shines in all aspects. My husband has always been fearful of the dentist but after coming to Dr. Blum he no longer feels scared or intimidated when sitting in the dentist chair. When choosing a dentist who’s compassionate about his job and life, without a doubt Dr. Blum is the best choice!”
-Shanan and Troy

“Although many of my past dental experiences had been less than pleasant at times, very painful and stressful, my five years as a patient here with Dr. Blum have been consistently enjoyable. His efforts to provide comfortable, stress-free, and virtually painless office visits combined with the kind of considerate approaches of each of his staff members here made what used to be a dreaded yearly chore a bi-yearly delight. All this… and humor too! Kudos to Dr. Blum and his staff. P.S. My smile is perfect now!”

“If you can say you enjoy visiting the dentist, you must be going to Dr. Damian Blum’s office! The courtesy, professionalism, and friendliness of the staff are unequaled; and Dr. Blum himself will bad joke you to oblivion if need be. (All, of course, while your mouth is full and you can’t respond.) From front desk to back office, you can’t beat this office.”
– Anne and Gary

“Dr. Blum has been my dentist for several years now and I can’t imagine going to any other dentist. I can honestly say that he has made an impact on my smile. He truly cares about your smile and always tries his best to make the whole procedure as painless as possible. I have a little story about Dr. Blum — my sister from California had to have a root canal. I always talk about how I love my dentist, so during one of her visits, she went to Dr. Blum. She couldn’t believe how painless the procedure was and is jealous of my dentist!”
– Josie

“Dave and I would like to thank you for your generous invitation to attend your Holiday Bash. Your kindness is overwhelming. It is wonderful of you to incorporate Toys for Tots into the festivities. We saw the Marine load many boxes of toys onto their trucks for delivery to underprivileged children, who otherwise would not enjoy the holidays. It must give you a warm feeling knowing you are responsible for so much joy.
“We know there are many different holidays to be celebrated during December and we wish blessings to you and everyone on your staff.
“La Palapa was festively adorned and I loved the Santa hats on your staff. The food and drinks were plentiful and yummy good. Our only regret was that we were co-hosting a neighborhood party and had just a small window of time to enjoy your shindig.
“Each time I come to your office, the girls tell me of a vacation that you have given them or about the many uniforms that you’ve provided. If I had even one boss like you, I would most likely still be working. Thanks again.
“Happy Holidays”
– Dave and Anita

“Oh My! The service was/is GREAT! I knew I wanted Dr.Blum and his dental family to take care of my dental work from the first time I went there—it was like I had known them forever, and never once did I feel like a new patient.

To Dr. Blum and Staff, thanks for making me smile and feeling so at ease! Dr. Blum you have a great staff. Keep up the GREAT job and see you soon!”
– Terry Howard

The entire staff could not have been better. It was the best experience I’ve ever had in a dentist office. Thanks.”
– Susan

“I appreciated that you heard my concerns and anxiety, and gave a name to it as well as a possible solution. You didn’t make me feel like an idiot nor did you simply pat me on my head in a condescending manner. No dentist has ever done this before.”
