046: Dr. Eugene Sambataro, Dentist, Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry: How Is Your Dentist Appointment Help Addressing Sleep Apnea

Do you know if you, your spouse, or your loved ones snore when they are sleeping? If you do, you're going to want to listen to this podcast on critical next steps! Dr. Gene Sambataro has been practicing dentistry for over 40 years and he strives to educate his patients on dental treatments to avoid due to toxins and how the mouth can be an indicator of breathing problems, which results in snoring. Snoring could be an indication of airway obstruction in sleep apnea, and depending on its severity, you can be one breath away from a heart attack. Listen to Mollie and Dr. Sambataro’s conversation on the relationship between mouth, jaw, breathing, and sleep conditions, followed by options and tips to address these issues!


Dr. Gene Sambataro has been practicing dentistry for over 40 years with special interests in orthodontics, dental orthopedics, temporomandibular joint disorder, sleep-disordered breathing, and implantology. He graduated from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 1980 and soon after started incorporating a more holistic approach to his practice.

Dr. Sambataro strives to educate his patients on how they can make healthier decisions in their lives, as well as sharing his knowledge around toxic-free dentistry, which avoids mercury amalgam fillings, fluoride, and toxic root canals. Nearly 80% of all illnesses can be connected to infections, toxicities, and imbalances in the mouth, which is one of the reasons he is so passionate about practicing Biological (or Holistic) Dentistry.

A few of his affiliations include the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, the Holistic Dental Association, and the International Dental Implant Association. He is also a Board Member for the Maryland Society of Integrative Medicine and the author of “Stop the Snore, Dental Solutions to Healthy Sleep.”
