Dr. Albert Capati

Dr. Albert Capati

Dr. Albert Capati is the sole dentist and owner of Capati Dental.  Dr. Capati grew up in Decatur, Illinois, and he graduated as Valedictorian from Eisenhower High School in 1993.

He attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD and graduated in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. Shortly after, he assisted in a study of bruxism (nocturnal tooth grinding) with Dr. Mark Teaford at Johns Hopkins Medical School.

Dr. Capati graduated from Southern Illinois University’s School of Dental Medicine in 2002. Upon graduation, he worked as an associate dentist back in Decatur for his childhood dentist. After a year in Decatur, Dr. Capati bought a dental practice from brothers Frank and Mark Link in Springfield, IL.  Dr. Frank Link mentored him and guided his continuing dental education.  Always thirsting for more knowledge to better treat his patients, he learned about the temporomandibular joint and dental occlusion from dental gurus Dr. Peter Dawson and Dr. Frank Spear. His focus right now is learning how the mouth affects the whole body, leading him to learn more about the causes and treatments for sleep apnea.  He is also spearheading the movement for using hemp oil in dentistry for treating anxiety, pain, and inflammation.
