Scottsdale dentist returns for season four of ABC's 'Extreme Weight Loss'

Local cosmetic and general practice dentist, Dr. John Badolato of Studio B Smiles, will be the official cosmetic dentist on Season 4 of ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss for the fourth consecutive season.

The partnership between Dr. Badolato and Extreme Weight Loss developed after a long-time friendship with “transformation specialist” and trainer Chris Powell. The two teamed up for David Smith’s national weight loss transformation documented on TLC and his success was covered by national news shows including 20/20, Oprah, Today Show and more, inspiring ABC’s hit television series.

Dr. Badolato’s role with Extreme Weight Loss is to complete the makeover process by performing any needed cosmetic and general dentistry for the participants (porcelain veneers, dental implants, Invisalign orthodontics, teeth cleanings, Glo teeth whitening, etc.).

The documentary-style series follows 16 obese individuals over 365 days as they strive to safely lose half of their body weight and undergo a complete makeover.

“I am excited to return for my fourth consecutive season with Extreme Weight Loss,” said Dr. John Badolato, owner of Studio B Smiles. “It is a rewarding experience to complete the final stage of the contestants’ makeover journey.”

Dr. Badolato is also known throughout the Valley for his work as the official team dentist of the Phoenix Suns, Suns Dancers and Phoenix Mercury.

The new season of Extreme Weight Loss premiered May 27 at 7 p.m. on ABC.
