Dr. John Badolato
Dr. John Badolato is the founder of Studio B Smiles, which has locations in both Scottsdale and Phoenix, and is responsible for the flawless grins of many Valley athletes. He is the official team dentist of the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Mercury and Phoenix Suns Dancers, after all. He’s been in the trade for 17 years, even mentoring with celebrity cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman while in dental school. “I always knew that I wanted to help people, and being a doctor is something I knew at I wanted to be at a very early age,” Dr. Badolato says. “I love seeing how improving someone’s smile for the better could change their lives.” In the new year, Dr. Badolato believes that straighter teeth will be more attainable as he foresees a reduction in cost of Invisalign and removable clear orthodontics, as well as improvements in digital imaging. Best of all, his heart’s as big as the smiles he creates, thanks to his work with Make-A-Wish, Banner Health Foundation of Arizona, Phoenix Suns Charities and the Pujols Family Foundation.
