The Gum Doc, Dr. Bruce Edelstein, has provided exceptional periodontal care to Atlanta area residents since 1984 and firmly believes that dentistry is an art and science. His patients benefit from not only his clinical expertise and experience but the creativity he brings as well. Being a fine art photographer, Dr. Edelstein’s artistic skills play a large role in creating and delivering effective periodontal therapy. His eye for beauty can ensure that the patient’s smile is the most esthetic it can be!
Due to being a top expert in his profession, Dr. Edelstein lectures extensively both locally and nationally sharing and lending his expertise in advanced areas of periodontal therapy. The office was very honored when it was recently named a “Center of Excellence” for regenerative therapies where it is a place of learning for fellow periodontists. Another distinction that was extended to Dr. Edelstein was an invitation from the Pierre Fauchard Academy to join the International Honorary Dental Service Organization. The Pierre Fauchard Academy seeks to recognize outstanding dentists and this distinctive fellowship is bestowed upon less than 4% of the dental profession worldwide.
Personal interests include a pursuance of his own fine art landscape black and white photography. His photographs have been shown in local galleries, are in private art collections, and are proudly displayed through out his office in a gallery-like manner to create a soothing and interesting environment.
Dr. Edelstein enjoys a full and rewarding family life which includes his best friend and wife, Amy, and their two terrific children. The Edelstein family enjoys traveling, biking, fishing and supporting the children in all of their many activities. Lastly, three furry critters—two Goldendoodles (one of whom is our office mascot!) and a boxer add to the household medley.
