12 Jun DENTIST SPOTLIGHT
Dentist Spotlight: Drs. Komal & Jashank Sampat – “The Dynamic Duo of Ambler Dental Care”
“Giving patients tender loving care above and beyond the chair”
In Chinese philosophy, the principle of Yin and Yang is that all things exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites. Yin and Yang attract and complement each other. The same can be said for Drs. Komal and Jashank Sampat of Ambler Dental Care located at 602 South Bethlehem Pike, Suite C-2, in Ambler, PA.
Dr. Komal Sampat, DMD is the first generation in her family to be born in the United States. Her loving parents, Geeta and Vinod Dudhat, immigrated to the U.S. from India. They eventually settled down in North Wales, PA – where Dr. Sampat and her brother grew up. Dr. Komal Sampat, DMD has great respect and admiration for her mother and father. Throughout her life, Dr. Sampat’s parents have encouraged her to pursue higher education. Her father, Vinod, is the founder/ owner of the successful dental laboratory, American Dental Designs located at 717 Bethlehem Pike in Montgomeryville, PA.
Dr. Sampat grew up watching Vinod hone his craft. When she was old enough, Dr. Sampat began working in her father’s dental lab – where she learned how to wax-up teeth, among other things. Dr. Sampat admires her father’s drive and eye for detail. She also lives by the words her mother has always told her… “Continue to do good work and everything else will follow.” This foundation has shaped her into the strong and independent woman she is today.
Dr. Komal Sampat, DMD attended The Hill School — a prestigious boarding school located in Pottstown, PA. After graduating, Dr. Sampat pursued a bachelor’s degree with a major in Biological (Life) Sciences and a minor in Business at Penn State University. That’s also where she met her future husband, Dr. Jashank Sampat, DMD. The “Dynamic Duo” met in her freshman year. However, Dr. Komal Sampat admits she was too focused on her education at the time. Eventually, he won her heart, they graduated and attended Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry – where they both earned their Doctor of Dental Medicine degrees. Dr. Komal Sampat, DMD proudly graduated with honors at the top of her class in 2015. That same year, Drs. Komal and Jashank Sampat became husband and wife.
Unlike his wife, Dr. Jashank Sampat, DMD was born in India. His parents moved to the United States when he was a child and eventually settled down in Royersford, PA. From a very young age, Dr. Sampat had an interest in dentistry because of his positive experience with his own family dentist. Dr. Sampat chose dentistry because he can interact more with patients than other medical fields. As a dentist, he sees results right away. He also loves working with a team, and of course his wife. After graduating from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry, Dr. Jashank Sampat was chosen for and completed an intensive Implant Continuum Training and has since placed and restored hundreds of Implants. Dr. Sampat also feels it’s important to give back to those less fortunate. He volunteers in Nepal with the Pennsylvania United Medical Association (PUMA). The organization provides medical and physical relief, as well as education, to impoverished people all over the world. Dr. Komal Sampat also gives back to those in need, by providing charity dental work at their office.
The “Dynamic Duo” has created something very special and unique for their patients at Ambler Dental Care. Imagine walking into a dental office that feels like a day spa. Forget those dental offices with plain white walls and furniture from decades ago collecting dust.
When you first walk into Ambler Dental Care, you get a feeling of comfort and relaxation with soft colors and thoughtful decor. You’re greeted by a friendly and warm staff. In the waiting room… you’ll find a nature program is always playing on the TV. Coffee and bottled water are also available while you wait. But this kind of service doesn’t stop there. Once a patient is brought to their treatment room, they’re given a “Comfort Menu” – which includes organic peppermint lip balm, blankets, and stress balls, among other things. But, wait… there’s more! When the patient sits down in the chair, they see a TV in front of them, as well as one on the ceiling. Drs. Komal & Jashank Sampat even went so far as to offer their patients headphones to stream any type of music or TV show they prefer to help distract them. They also keep a record of their favorite music and TV shows for future office visits. The idea for this spa-like concept came from both Drs. Komal & Jashank Sampat.
Since we brought up the principle of Yin and Yang earlier, the concept is also a starting point for change, which is something both dentists have embraced for their dental practice. They researched various types of businesses in the hospitality industry – including five-star hotels and spas. They decided they wanted to give their patients, especially those who have a fear of the dentist, that same five-star experience.
Dr. Jashank Sampat & Dr. Komal Sampat have implemented a team of wonderful and experienced dentists – which includes Dr. Jon Browning in Ambler, PA and Dr. Priya Patel at their other spa-like office, Bear Valley Dental Care located at 137 Montgomery Avenue in Boyertown, PA. With their team of dentists, they are confident in providing comprehensive quality care.
