Samer Albadawi, DMD, MPH
Originally from a small town in Syria, Dr. Albadawi immigrated to southern California when he was just a young teenager. Mastering a new language, acclimating to a new home, and with a great deal of determination and discipline, he successfully graduated from UCLA and went on to the University of Pittsburgh for dental school. It was here that Dr. Albadawi discovered his passion for oral surgery, as it was the field of dentistry that allowed him to help patients in pain, treat disease, and manage patient anxiety with anesthesia. Dr. Albadawi is thrilled to have joined the wonderful community of Davis with his wife and two young boys.
Dr. Albadawi received his bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of California, Los Angeles. He went on to dental school at the University of Pittsburgh, where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine as well as a Masters in Public Health. He then completed a very competitive four year residency program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the prestigious Rutgers School of Dental Medicine.
Board certified and trained in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Albadawi has extensive experience in simple and surgical extractions, dental implant placement, bone grafting, sinus lifts, biopsies, and management of orofacial trauma. At Davis Oral Surgery and Implant Center, each patient is treated like family. Every treatment plan is based on individual patient needs, and care is provided comfortably for a pleasant experience to create the outstanding smile you deserve.
While Dr. Albadawi isn’t treating patients, he loves spending time with his family. As a father of two young boys, he spends most of his free time chasing them around the greenbelts and many parks of Davis. He also enjoys swimming, playing pickle ball, and mountain biking. Dr. Albadawi has spent numerous years volunteering for Smile Bangladesh, an organization dedicated to treating young children with cleft lip and palate. Participating in Davis city events and serving his local community is also an important part of his life.
