Meet Dr. Blodgett
Kelly J. Blodgett, DMD, NMD, IBDM
Dr. Kelly J. Blodgett, a General Dentist who is board certified in Naturopathic Medical Dentistry and Integrative Biological Dental Medicine, is one of the most unique dentists in the world. At the age of 21, just prior to earning his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon, he felt called by God to become a dentist. The specific calling he heard was to “reverse the negative stereotype of dentistry.” Since becoming a licensed dentist in 1999, he has positively impacted hundreds of thousands of people worldwide through the care that he provides in his clinic and through his social media post series “Toxic Tuesday” and “Wellness Wednesday.”
Dr. Blodgett has performed hundreds of presentations on progressive dental concepts over the past 20 years, along with being the featured guest on dozens of podcasts, webinars, news segments and Instagram Live events. His approach of connecting with the human being first and focusing on their health goals as the guideposts to treatment is a refreshing shift from the “doctor knows best” dogma of other practices.
As the founder of Blodgett Dental Care in Portland, OR, Dr. Blodgett has developed a practice that holds a worldwide status of being one of the most sought-after destinations for dental tourism. BDC’s uniqueness stems from both the respect it offers to its patients as individuals along with its artful fusion of biology and technology. Dr. Blodgett is committed to investing his energy to help all dental practices adopt biological practices and develop communication skills that respect the autonomy of the patient.
