Dr. Jason Collier
Dr. Jason S. Collier is our leading implant dentist serving the greater Memphis area. Dr. Collier graduated from the University Of Tennessee College Of Dentistry with a doctoral degree in dental surgery. Following his enthusiasm for teaching, Dr. Collier has instructed practitioners and students alike in surgical implant dentistry, restorative dentistry, and in the complex study of head and neck anatomy in the neuroanatomy department at the University Of Tennessee College Of Dentistry.
Throughout his entire career, Dr. Collier has intensely focused his practice and training toward dental implant surgery. As a dental surgeon, Dr. Collier is an associate fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and is trained and certified in IV sedation and advanced cardiac life support, through the hospital based programs at Duquesne University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Concerned not only with flawless technique and esthetics but also superior patient care, Dr. Collier has developed an anesthesia technique to give his patients the greatest level of comfort possible. Anyone who knows Dr. Collier can attest to his avid enthusiasm for the field of implantology. This enthusiasm drives him both to excellence in treating his patients and to constant advancement through continuing education.
Dr. Collier's most notable strengths include his:
Cutting Edge Technique
Dr. Collier graduated from the advanced implant, bone grafting, and soft tissue management program at Loma Linda University in California, the premier implant training university in the world. At Loma Linda, Dr. Collier received the top award for excellence in implant placement. He has studied under many prominent leaders in the implant field and recently received the ACE award in Tennessee for having more continuing education than any other doctor in the state. Dr. Collier has pursued industry advancement programs all across the US with the intention of providing his patients with the greatest level of care available. Dr. Collier has also taken extensive measures to study the cosmetic aspect of implantology, with a desire for his patients to have a beautiful, natural smile.
With advancements in implant technology and the use of 3D CT scanning radiology, Dr. Collier is now offering one of the most cutting edge techniques in the world of restoring smiles to those in need of comprehensive care. Before any procedure is begun, a planning process is initiated incorporating patient photos, 3D models of his patients and clear goals as laid out through a dialogue between Dr. Collier and his patients. Next a full esthetic prosthesis can be 3 dimensionally planned within computer software, again based on the patients goals. With this end in mind, implants can be virtually placed within the software and a guide made to place them precisely where they need to be in the patients smile. With implants exactly in their optimal positions to serve as supports for the pre-designed prosthesis, the cosmetic and functional goals of his patients can ideally achieved...and all within one day! A patient can walk in with a complex deterioration of their mouth and the same day walk out with a completely new, ideal, and natural-looking smile while completely being supported by immediately placed implants. We are very excited to have the opportunity to offer this level of treatment to those in need of it in Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas and the US.
Dr. Collier has a great eye for viewing surgical procedures with his patients’ desired end result in mind, a beautiful smile. An implant’s position and angulation can have a dramatic impact on the functional and esthetic success of a crown, bridge or denture. Dr. Collier believes that the “WOW” esthetics is of the utmost importance. Coming from a prosthetic dentistry background gives Dr. Collier an edge in this area that other surgeons may overlook. Referring dentists and their patients greatly appreciate a background like his. All referred patients always return to their referring doctors offices with implants properly placed and completely ready for the completion of their prosthetic phase of treatment. Also remember to ask Dr. Collier about the all white zirconia implant. They are a metal free, holistic, and optimally cosmetic solution for restoring areas of missing teeth.

He is also a proud member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Tennessee Dental Association, and the Memphis Dental Society.

Dr. Herb Blumenthal
Dr. Herb Blumenthal has been in active practice for more than 50 years. He has always sought out knowledge that would help him better serve his patients. That quest has led him to study the relationship of TM Disorders to medicine, occlusion, chiropractic medicine, kinesiology, restorative dentistry, biofeedback, neurophysiology, muscle physiology, nutrition, sleep disorders… and other areas outside of dentistry. He has applied this multi-disciplinary information to the diagnosis and treatment of TMD patients for more than 40 years.
He has partnered with a wide range of professionals and developed a unique perspective of the interrelationship of TMD treatment as a multidisciplinary therapy involving many professionals who work in concert to best treat these very special patients. He has directly and positively impacted the lives of countless patients with his ability to listen, observe, and understand. That number has been exponentially increased by his sharing of what he has learned over the years with other dentists as a teacher, mentor and advisor. The quest led him to The Pankey Institute 38 years ago and he continues that relationship today.
He began to give back as a member of the visiting faculty 30 years ago and has served as one of the lead faculty for the Bite Splint and Temporomandibular Evaluation course.
