Eugene A. Sambataro, DDS, FAGD, has been a leader in the field of dentistry for more than thirty-five years. Dr. Sambataro’s holistic approach to dentistry is rooted in an understanding of the interconnectedness of oral and whole-body health. As director and clinician of his practice, the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, Dr. Sambataro focuses on healing the mind, body, and spirit, with an emphasis on treating sleep-disordered breathing issues, like sleep apnea.
Dr. Sambataro’s philosophical shift to biologically centered holistic dentistry comes from a place of sincere belief in the need for change. Too many of his patients were misinformed about their oral health, and too many were prevented from improving their health because of traditional dental and health care practices. Adding to his approach is a discovery of the dangers of conventional dental remedies like mercury amalgam fillings, fluoride, and root canals. Dr. Sambataro believes we are at the beginning of a fundamental shift in the practice of dentistry—a transformation that will shift the focus of dental practices away from the emergency treatment of symptoms toward compassionate, comprehensive, and preventative biological care that truly embraces the philosophy of Hippocrates: “First do no harm.”
Dr. Sambataro attended the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and began his career practicing traditional dentistry, pioneering treatments for TMD (jaw joint disorders) and sleep apnea. He is now a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health, the Academy of Sleep Medicine, American Sleep and Breathing Academy, National Sleep Foundation, Maryland Sleep Society, International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, Holistic Dental Association, and the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and the International Dental Implant Association. He is also a member and fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry.
