About Us

Dentistry is rapidly changing, and some cutting-edge technology and treatments may not be fully proven. That’s why Tyma Trachtenberg Bullock & Blessington relies exclusively on evidence-based dentistry, and is committed to bringing our patients the latest in proven techniques and treatments.

To do that, our practice spends significantly more than the average practice on continuing education. We share knowledge with other dentists through numerous organizations, teach at a world-famous dental teaching center, and volunteer our time at a local free clinic.
