After 52 years of giving to his patients, Dr. Mintz has retired from active practice. He started his career in the military, serving as an Army dentist for 2 years.

In 1971, Dr. Mintz decided to steer his career path to Pediatric dentistry, where he spent 25 years attending to children, adolescents, and teens.

In 1996, Dr. Mintz chose to further his particular skill set and add 25 more years to his resume as an orofacial pain and dental sleep medicine specialist.

Although Dr. Mintz may be retiring from active practice, his new career path lies as a teacher, national speaker, and researcher at various institutions and organizations. The primary teaching and research focus is dental therapies for children, adolescents, and teens with sleep disorder breathing.

Dr. Mintz still teaches at the Walter Reed Orofacial Pain Clinic in Bethesda and the Orofacial Pain Department at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in Baltimore. He will continue to teach and see patients at Children’s Hospital in the sleep clinic in DC.

Happily, he will now be able to spend more time with his grandchildren, travel the world with his wife, garden, go horseback riding, and attempt his hand at golf! Jeremy J Abbott, DDS would like to wish all the best to Dr. Mintz as he enjoys semi-retirement!!!
