About John Augspurger, DDS

A respected and passionate leader in biological dentistry, Dr. John Augspurger has over 30 years’ experience as a dentist.


For 25 of those years, he has been a biological dentist, pledged to practice with full integrity, with all the purpose, commitment and courage that implies.


He is the President and Founder of BioDentist, a unique holistically-integrated, insurance-free dental practice located in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Augspurger is also the owner, Co-Founder, and visionary creator of the Human Universal Health Institute, a biologically-based health care, education, and community center.


Augspurger began his dental training at age 13 as a hands-on lab technician, designing and creating meticulously customized prosthetic appliances, under the guidance of his orthodontist father: an immensely valuable training ground.


A graduate of the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, and a recipient of their Senior Achievement Award in Geriatric Care, and, most recently, an ACIMD certified Naturopathic Medical Doctor; Augspurger has vigorously pursued extensive continuing education in nutrition, toxicology, oxygen therapies, homeopathy, and herbology. He is an ongoing participant in ground-breaking research into body chemistries and dental disease, and the toxicity of root canals.

Honored by the Society of Progressive Medicine with an invitation to teach other doctors and dentists about biological medicine and the medical/dental uses of ozone therapy, he is an active and vocal member of the Holistic Dental Association, American Academy of Biological Dentistry, the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the American Academy of Ozone Therapy, and is a Huggins Alliance Dentist.

Episode Highlights with John Augspurger

  • Dentistry can be a toxic experience, especially when removing metals, or when infections are involved.

  • Biological dentistry addresses the root of the issue and treats it from a whole-body approach.

  • The gut is addressed in biological dentistry as well.

  • The lymphatic system is an essential component of the extracellular matrix. 

  • Near vs. Far Infrared Sauna: Near infrared will result in an endocrine upregulation, akin to being close to the sun.  Far infrared sauna will be more heat and affect the skin, producing sweat/detox.  Utilizing both types is ideal for cleaning the extracellular matrix.

  • “Root canals are the ultimate gangrene,” because it keeps dead tissue within a living body.

  • Chronic inflammation is a large component of an unhealthy mouth.  This can be helped by a diet low in sugar.

  • Dr. Augspurger recommends getting a second and third opinion from dentists regarding whether cavitations are present.

  • It is recommended to get any oral infection/cavitation treated in the same surgical experience. 

  • The Human Universal Health Institute is a place patients can come and thoroughly prep before getting required biological dentistry work.  Days or weeks are spent in detox before dental surgery.
