Meet Dr Maryam Hamdan, DMD
Founder of Phoenix Biological Dentistry
Dr Hamdan received her Doctoral Degree in Dental Surgery abroad in 2011, where she practiced for several years. After life brought her to Arizona (for the first time), she began working with Dr Lisa Butler of Integrative Dental in 2014. There, she discovered biological dentistry, and built her foundation in biological dentistry concepts. After gaining experience in Phoenix, Dr Hamdan decided to join Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, in Boston, for two years of General Practice Residency for International Dentists.
After completing her residency, Dr Hamdan practiced biological dentistry in Massachusetts under the mentorship of some of the original pioneers in biological dentistry in New England; Dr Robert Evans and Dr Jean Nordin. While in New England, she expanded her scope and understanding of biological dentistry and functional medicine, and is now looking to bring that expertise back to Arizona, to serve the holistic and health conscious community.
Dr Hamdan continues to advance her skills thru training programs led by some of the best biological dentists in the world, from Switzerland to Phoenix. To provide you with world class skill, and gentle, holistic care.
To date, Dr Hamdan has helped thousands of patients achieve life changing oral health in conjunction with their overall health. Her patient base spans several states, countries, and islands as her reputation has spread throughout the health conscious community, thanks to her patients. She enjoys receiving post cards and little notes from her past patients, as life takes them in new directions.
She is keen on promoting to her patients that oral health goes hand in hand with overall health. It’s important to take into consideration all aspects of our health, not just our teeth. She enjoys working with patients of all ages and backgrounds as she strives to develop a patient doctor relationship based on trust and respect.
On a side note, Dr Hamdan loves the outdoors and enjoys all water sports, especially swimming. She and her husband have visited and hiked in over 22 national parks and counting, and now has the privilege of taking her son and daughter to these same wonderful places.
She looks forward to being a part of your journey to health and wellness!

Why Biological Dentistry?
It can help with
Your Well Being
Dental health and your overall well-being are deeply connected.
With our holistic approach, we work with your body to determine materials that are bio-compatible and works with your immune system, not against it. This allows you to enjoy a lifetime of good health along with a beautiful smile.
In sharp contrast to the “drill and fill” strategy many conventional dentists embrace, we are advocates for minimally invasive dentistry. Minimally invasive dentistry seeks to treat dental issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease and even cosmetic issues, without the overuse of extensive drilling or unwarranted procedures. Our goal is to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure and surrounding tissues as possible.
Here at PBD, we are committed to using safe, durable, non-toxic bio-compatible dental materials, and strictly oppose the use of amalgam, or mercury fillings. This commitment helps to lessen your toxic load and puts less stress on your immune system.

Using a holistic approach, we’re able to connect different aspects of your oral health with your entire body to find ideal solutions that’ll enhance all areas of your inner balance and encourage you to center yourself and achieve harmony
