Dr. Julia Kagan Oppenheimer

dr-julia-oppenheimer-200x300Dr. Julia Kagan Oppenheimer is an associate dentist at The Gelb Center. Dr. Oppenheimer focuses on best in class treatments for sleep disorders and TMJ. Dr. Oppenheimer has a long time interest in the complexity of the human body. From her days in art school drawing the human figure to many hours of self observation in yoga practice, through dental and acupuncture school, her attention is geared toward understanding the human body and optimizing over all health and well being through knowledge and compassion.

Please note: Dr. Oppenheimer accepts insurance.

In professional practice at The Gelb Center in NYC, she helps individuals find resolution to health concerns after often times a long road of untreated symptoms that relate to the TMJ and restricted airway space such as headaches, insomnia, anxiety, head and neck pain, ear pain, tinnitus and sleep apnea through oral appliance therapy and acupuncture.

Dr. Oppenheimer is inspired integrating eastern and western medicine to positively transform peoples’ lives. She looks forward to strengthening that connection in our medical system through her appointment to faculty at Tristate College of Acupuncture in the TMD Pain Clinic training Rusk Physical Medicine and Rehab residents.
