Dr. Blume’s priority is your child’s oral health and positive self-esteem! You will find that she approaches dentistry with a focus on educating the patient and the parent about how to prevent oral health problems, not just treat the ones they may already have. She wants everyone to take away some new knowledge about their care and reinforce the strengths they already have! A mother of two children, she knows what it is like to be a parent doing your best to raise great humans and wants to help you succeed! You will also notice Dr. Blume is a dog person! She has trained her Goldendoodle, Raney, to help anxious kids be more comfortable in the office! Be sure you ask to see her if you are interested. Dr. Blume is passionate about spending time with her kids when not at the office. They love musical theater and can be seen at the Majestic Theater, The Public Theater, or The Woodlawn Theatre most weekends. When not at the theater, both kids play volleyball, so that’s where you will find them. They also love hiking some of the local parks, like Friedrich Wilderness Park, Eisenhower Park, or at the Pearl.
