Dr. Julie Gum • DMD
Hello there! I’m Dr. Julie Gum, a caring and enthusiastic dentist with a mission to create healthy and beautiful smiles for all my patients. Dentistry has always been my true passion, and I am committed to providing exceptional dental care that enhances the well-being and confidence of every individual who walks through my office door. I am a native of the Lehigh Valley, attended Pen Argyl Area High school, and am proud to have provided dental care in Nazareth for over 10 years.
Education and Credentials:
I completed my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. As a firm believer in continuing education, I regularly attend workshops and conferences to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in dentistry. I have completed over 1,000 hours of continuing education with a special focus in the areas of cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, Invisalign, and sleep apnea. I have attended the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry in New York City and have taken the continuum of courses at Spear Education in Arizona.
I believe that dental visits should be a comfortable and pleasant experience, even for those with dental anxiety. My warm and approachable nature helps patients feel at ease during their appointments, fostering a trusting and long-lasting relationship. I am a firm believer in personalized care, tailoring treatment plans to meet the individual needs and goals of each patient. Education is a crucial aspect of dental care. I take the time to thoroughly explain procedures and oral health practices, empowering my patients to make informed decisions about their dental health. A well-informed patient is more likely to maintain optimal oral hygiene and achieve lasting results.
Hobbies and Interests:
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and golden retriever. I also enjoy skiing, hiking, traveling, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends.
