Pensacola dentist charged with battering client set for jury selection

After months of battery allegations that drew the attention of Florida’s surgeon general, Pensacola dentist Charles Stamitoles is approaching his trial.

Court records indicate a jury will be selected Oct. 17 to try Stamitoles on six counts of battery after multiple women came forward and pressed charges against the dentist for inappropriately touching them during business hours, leading to four arrests between May 27 and July 29.

One patient said the dentist allegedly spoke sexually to her while suggestively touching her. Per an arrest report, he asked a patient May 18, 2022, if she could satisfy herself, followed by telling her he could satisfy her “like a god.”

He also allegedly rubbed his body against hers while moaning and told her that he thought her tattoos were “sexy.”

On Dec. 16, 2020, he allegedly patted a female patient’s breast while she was in the operating chair, complimenting her physical appearance.

“(Victim) said that Stamitoles was beginning to administer the medicine to numb her mouth area when he patted her with his hand on her right breast area,” his arrest report noted.

Dr. Charles Stamitoles arrives in court for a plea hearing on Aug. 30.

On May 24 and May 25, 2022, an employee reported he slapped her on the buttocks and hugged her from behind while kissing her on her head.

The victim told deputies that she was in the bathroom when Stamitoles “shut the door, he hugged her from behind and kissed her on the back of her head and then told her to now do it to him.”
