Douglas C. Jungman, D.D.S.

I knew I wanted to be a dentist when I was a junior in high school. I was very fortunate that the dentist I started seeing at age 12 always made everything so comfortable to me. He was compassionate, truly enjoyed his work and was excellent technically. I knew that was the kind of dentist I wanted to become.

What excites me as a dentist is the opportunity to help improve the lives of my patients. When a patient tells me "I love my new smile", "my mouth has never felt better" or "that was the easiest dental experience I have ever had", It is always a great feeling!

Whenever I have the opportunity to truly have a life changing impact on someone’s life through dentistry, (see the clip from Dr. Phil show below). It is always a highlight for me and my staff.

EDUCATION

I attended the University of Iowa undergraduate and College of Dentistry where I received my D.D.S. degree with honors (Omicron Kappa Upsilon) in 1981.

Continuing education is an important aspect of dentistry. I received my fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in 1986, an honor in which only 5% of dentists achieve.

Currently my main focus on continuing education is on cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and sedation dentistry.

PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS

Personal Info:

I was born and raised in Iowa and practiced there for six years before moving to Bradenton in 1987 and joined Drs. Zamikoff & Klement. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, Donna and three children Adam, Bridget, Elise and one grandchild – Ellie.

I feel it is important to give back to the community and have been involved with Bradenton Kiwanis, Give Back a Smile, Give Kids a Smile and volunteer for Bill Galvano’s One Stop Center.

Over the years I have enjoyed many athletic activities such as tennis, running, hiking, biking, baseball, basketball and triathlon competitions and am an avid sports fan.

Sometimes I am asked what I would have pursued for a career if not dentistry. It definitely would have revolved around music. I enjoy playing classical piano, which is a great way to relax and enhance dexterity and a gentle touch while providing dental care.

Personal Statement:

It is my goal to provide excellent dentistry in a caring and compassionate manner and to create an environment that is as pleasant as possible for my patients. I feel it is important to take time to listen to determine the best path of treatment for each individual patient.
