Hendrik F. Blom, DDS

If Dr. Blom seems like he has a lot of energy, it may be because he was born on the Dutch East Indies island of Java. Dr. Blom received his undergraduate education at UC Davis and went on to receive his dental and orthodontic training at UC San Francisco. While at UCSF, he had the opportunity to train under Dr. Ronald Roth (Orthodontics) and Dr. William Ware (Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery), both renowned individuals in their respective fields. It is to these individuals that Dr. Blom attributes his clinical style. In December of 2002 he was voted Sacramento’s #1 orthodontist in a survey by Sacramento Magazine of 1,800 Sacramento area dentists. Since 1982, Dr. Blom has practiced Orthodontics in Citrus Heights and since 1983 as a member of the UC Davis Craniofacial Anomalies Panel. Dr. Blom is committed to excellence in orthodontics with tireless dedication. He has distinguished knowledge in areas including the facial growth and development guidance and orthodontic treatment in young children, multidisciplinary cases with other dentists and specialists, orthodontic treatment in craniofacial patients, jaw surgery and the temporomandibular joint complex. Dr. Blom is Board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), a distinction attained by less than 30% of practicing orthodontists. In his spare time, Dr. Blom enjoys traveling, hiking spending time with his family and speaking Dutch to his granddaughters , Brooklyn and Ella.
