Special Care Dentistry, Founder

Dr. David Blende brings you over 30 years of dental expertise. After graduating from the University of Southern California, he practiced in Switzerland, then went on to build a successful aesthetic dentistry practice in Beverly Hills. He became one of a pioneering group of dentists to do full-mouth rehabilitation using general anesthesia in a hospital setting. He later went on to establish the Blende Dental Group, where patients have traveled from more than 30 states and 20 countries for extensive treatment, complex aesthetic dentistry, or to have all their treatment completed while they sleep.

To complete these cases, Dr. Blende joined the medical staff at eight San Francisco Bay Area hospitals. He also serves as Chief of the Dental Division at two of the major hospitals. In these positions, he interacts with the entire healthcare team from physicians of all specialties to case managers to assisted living community nursing directors. Through these relationships, he realized that many people do not have access to dental care because they cannot travel to or cooperate with a dentist. He founded House Call Dentists in 2008 with a vision to remove such barriers to receiving dental care.

As word spread that dental care was available outside the dental office, Dr. Blende began receiving requests from concierge physicians and some of his private clients for services at home. The Concierge side of the practice was established to provide the highest level of service: real relationships with clients combined with elegant results. In 2013, House Call Dentists opened a second location in Manhattan.
