Pensacola dentist Stamitoles could lose license after DOH complaints

Even as Pensacola dentist Charles Stamitoles waits for a decision in the appeal of his guilty verdict on battery charges, two more public complaints have been filed with Florida’s Department of Health.

The two administrative complaints signed by Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo on Nov. 7 involve two current criminal cases that stem from allegations of battery, including one felony count Stamitoles is charged with for allegedly battering a patient who is over the age of 65.

Both complaints request that the Florida Board of Dentistry “enter an order” to impose on or more of the following:

  • permanent revocation or suspension of his license
  • restriction of practice
  • imposition of an administrative fine
  • reprimand
  • probation
  • corrective action
  • refund of fees
  • remedial education

One complaint involves the felony case in which Stamitoles allegedly “placed both of his hands on each side of (his patient’s) face, while putting his face about six to eight inches in front of her face and told her to look into his eyes” during an appointment on May 31, 2022.

Stamitoles then allegedly kissed her on the forehead.

The second complaint stems from a misdemeanor case of battery in which Stamitoles allegedly grabbed a patient’s hand and “pulled it toward his penis,” later grabbing her breasts and pushing them together.
