Dr. Barry Bluth attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, in Boston Massachusetts. Dr. Bluth graduated with honors in 1990 after completing externships at Boston City Hospital (in oral surgery) and at the Coast Guard base in Miami Beach (in general dentistry.) Dr. Bluth then went on to complete a General Practice Residency at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, with rotations through Miami Childrens Hospital and Jackson Memorial Hospital. While a resident at Mt. Sinai, Dr. Bluth started a volunteer dental program at Camillus House to provide dental care to the homeless. Learning from his father, Dr. Barry has a strong commitment to providing for those in need, and is passionate about giving back to the community from which he grew up in. Dr. Barry Bluth currently provides volunteer dental care to many underprivileged and handicapped individuals through ties with community mental health facilities, rehab programs, and various other social service providers. Growing up in South Florida, Dr. Barry Bluth is happy not only to be working in this area, but also to be able to work alongside his family members. With uncles and cousins who are dentists, it was only natural to follow in the family tradition. Having seen his father travel around the world to volunteer as a dentist, Dr. Barry, as he is referred to in the office, was fortunate as a child to accompany his family on some of these journeys. He has been an integral part of the family practice since completing his residency in 1991. With a strong surgical background and an affinity for high tech tools, Dr. Bluths interest lies in Orthodontic and Implant Dentistry. Dr. Barry Bluth is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the South Broward Dental Society, and the American Orthodontic Society. He is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, a member of the international college of Implantologists, and currently is working towards becoming a fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dr. Bluth is always on top of new developments in the field, and is eager to implement those that will benefit patients. Dr. Barry is an avid scuba diver, and enjoys camping and outdoor activities, as well as spending time with family.
Dr. Norman Bluth attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After graduating in 1960, he completed a two-year residency program with the Army at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. With his wife, Natalie, a Registered Dental Hygienist, he brought his family to South Florida to be close to other family members and practice dentistry in sunny South Florida. Dr. Norman, as he is referred to in the office, was one of the first dentists to set up an office in Davie. He always appreciated the small town feel and warmth of Davie. In the 50 years he has treated patients here, he has been fortunate to make many close friends with those living and working in Davie. An active Rotarian, Dr. Norman was a founding member of the local Davie chapter of rotary and one of its past presidents. Through the Davie Rotary Club and voluntary dental charity, Dr. Norman has been able to give to the community in which he resides, as well as the world at large. He has volunteered many times for month long journeys to countries less privileged than ours. He has been fortunate to be able to provide dental care to refugee camps in Lebanon, Israel, and Mainland China. Working side by side with Natalie, they have been able to live in and experience foreign countries in a way far more rewarding than as a tourist. Dr. Norman Bluths interests outside the office include golf, bridge, and traveling.
