Meet the Doctor
Proudly Serving the Community for Over 10 Years
Nathan Saydyk, DDS, FAGD
Dr. Saydyk began his medical career serving as a medic in the US Navy. At Bremerton Naval Hospital, he worked as the enlisted manager of the Intensive Care Unit and Cardiac Care Unit. After gaining experience in other fields, including crop physiology and engineering, he found his calling in dentistry. Today, Dr. Saydyk loves the ability to work with his hands while cultivating close relationships with his patients every day, and he owes a great deal of gratitude to his father, an orthodontist, for passing along his passion for dentistry and helping people. Dr. Theodore Saydyk Jr. passed away due to complications of obstructive sleep apnea, which is why Dr. Saydyk is so dedicated to providing airway-focused dental care to his patients.
Dr. Saydyk graduated from Utah State University and the top-rated Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry and has been practicing as a board-certified general and cosmetic dentist in Gilbert for more than 10 years. He is committed to providing the most advanced dental care available to his patients and continuously pursues additional education and training opportunities to stay up to date with the latest advances in dentistry. In 2023, he achieved Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, an accomplishment reached by only 6% of dentists. Click here to learn more.
His most recent training includes the topics of full-mouth rehabilitation, complex case planning, implant dentistry, and oral conscious sedation. He has been a presenter at the Arizona Academy of General Dentistry annual meeting and the Mayo Clinic on the topic of sleep apnea treatment and has received a TopPractice Award from eAssist. His commitment to lifelong learning has earned him Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, which he will be awarded in 2023.
Lifelong learning is one of Dr. Saydyk’s passions!

He is passionate about providing the highest-quality comprehensive oral health care, including diagnosing and treating snoring and sleep apnea. He specializes in full mouth reconstructions and cosmetic tooth reconstructions that are indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Dr. Saydyk has been married for more than 30 years to his high school sweetheart, Kristi, with whom he has four beautiful children and one grandchild.

He is currently one of the assistant coaches of the Campo Verdi High School hockey team and loves to play at the Puckhead Hockey Club with his kids. He has played on The Bandits for over 10 years and celebrated multiple championships. He loves talking with patients about coaching and the finer points of hockey!
