Dr. Kevin Sambuchino, DMD
A native of Erie who attended Cathedral Preparatory School, Dr. Kevin Sambuchino furthered his education at the University of Pittsburgh where he was a member of the varsity tennis team. During his undergraduate years at Pitt, Dr. Sambuchino majored in business/finance and was named to both the athletic and academic honor roll.
He attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, where he received his doctorate in dental medicine. While in dental school, he completed an oral surgery externship at Montefiore Hospital.
Additionally, he has studied the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry with several renowned dentists from across the country. Dr. Sambuchino has completed continuing education on Invisalign and certification in advanced Invisalign techniques. Dr. Sambuchino continues to study innovations in dentistry to maintain the highest standard of care. He is a board-certified general dentist, who is also certified in nitrous oxide sedation.
Dr. Sambuchino is one of the first 50 dentists in North America using the most advanced Deka CO2 laser. By integrating lasers into his practice, he has been able to offer patients quick, painless solutions to problems that otherwise would require painful surgery.
He has spent time studying with Dr. John Chao in Los Angeles to become certified in the Chao pinhole periodontal technique to correct receding gums. This new technique allows for a painless solution to receding gums, that can replace the older procedure of gum grafting.
Dr. Sambuchino has also studied 3D printing and imaging to allow him to move teeth digitally and print aligners for quick and easy orthodontics for his patients. This 3D technology has also enabled him to place dental implants with the highest level of accuracy and safety possible.
He is working with the newest technologies that allow him to perform implant surgeries without pain and swelling. This is only possible with laser-assisted implant placement. He is now able to complete all of his surgeries without a scalpel with the help of lasers. These techniques significantly reduce swelling, pain and healing time.
A talented cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sambuchino has an acute eye for designing smile makeovers. He can create smiles that are so natural it’s virtually impossible to determine which teeth he has restored. This is apparent when you examine his case photos depicting his before-and-after smile restorations. He loves being able to help people improve their smile, which instantly boosts their confidence.
