Meet Dr Maryam Hamdan
Health Focused Dentist
Dr Hamdan received her Bachelors in Dental Surgery abroad in 2011, where she began her career. It was when she moved to Arizona, and began working under Dr Lisa Butler of Integrative Dental in 2014, that she developed interest in biological dentistry, and built her foundation in biological dentistry concepts. After gaining experience in Phoenix, Dr Hamdan decided to go back to school to advance her training, and earned a DMD from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.
After graduating, Dr Hamdan practiced biological dentistry in Massachusetts under the mentorship of some of the original pioneers in biological dentistry in the U.S.; Dr Robert Evans and Dr Jean Nordin. While in New England, she expanded her scope and understanding of biological dentistry and integrative medicine, and is now looking to bring that expertise back to Arizona, to serve the holistic and health conscious community.
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.
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.
