Dr. Larry Hellman received his B.S. in Biology from Midwestern University in 1963. He earned his D.D.S. from the University of Texas Dental Branch in 1967 and a Certificate of Residency in Comprehensive Dentistry from the Naval Dental School, Bethesda. Dr. Hellman holds a Masters Degree in Education and Human Development from George Washington University received in 1994. He served 25 years in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps, serving in various commands around the world. He retired from the Naval Dental School at Bethesda, Maryland where he was Chairman of the Comprehensive Dentistry Department and Director of the Two-Year Residency Program. He became a full time faculty member at VCU in 1995 and maintains a general practice in the School of Dentistry.

The part of his General Practice that Dr. Hellman enjoys most is treating those patients for whom he can be helpful in getting control of their dental disease, be it dental caries or periodontal disease. He enjoys routine general dentistry including basic procedures in all disciplines of dental care. One of the great advantages of the Faculty Practice, both to patients and clinicians, is the tremendous availability of very talented specialists in all the disciplines of dentistry. Therefore, when we are able to get a patients disease under control we can facilitate access to the very best dental care the profession has to offer.

Dr. Hellman is a member of the: American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, Richmond Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Virginia Academy of General Dentistry, Academy of Operative Dentistry, and the American Association of Dental Schools.
