AZ Central


Phoenix Suns All-Star Devin Booker and Studio B Smiles have combined to increase their donation to $500,000 to support Special Olympics Arizona by providing free dental care to local athletes in need.

Dr. John Badolato, known as Dr. B. of Studio B Smiles, is the official team dentist of the Suns.

“Giving back to the community is key,” said Booker in a news release. “Playing a part in building confidence in these athletes has been a rewarding experience. It’s been amazing partnering with Dr. B. and I’m so proud that we’re increasing our goal.”

They initially collaborated two years ago in Booker’s Starting Five initiative in 2021 with a $250,000 donation in free dental care for local athletes for the next 10 years.

Having already spent $120,000 towards dental care, the donation increase will continue to address services such as exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, Invisalign, teeth whitening and overall oral health.

Dr. B. will continue donating dental care to local Special Olympic athletes in need for every patient who says “BOOK IT” when making an appointment at his Studio B Smiles offices in Scottsdale and downtown Phoenix.
