I moved in the UK in 2011 and since then I worked as an Associate Dentist in London with a Special Interest in Endodontics. I take special pride in building a relaxed patient/dentist experience, and I do my best to make my patients feel as comfortable as possible providing them with high quality, evidence- based general dental care from simple to even more complex cases.I am passionate about what I do and treat patients with ethos, care and respect from the moment they enter the practice, up till the end.
I received my BSc in 1997 from University of Alabama at Birmingham USA. I qualified as a dentist from University of Alabama School of Dentistry USA in 2001. In 2002 I joined the Greek Army Forces for one year as part of my mandatory service, where I served as a dentist treating soldiers and officers. In 2004 I completed a two-year Post-graduate Diploma in Endodontics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Greece.
From 2005-2011 I maintained a private practice in Thessaloniki, Greece where I practiced all aspects of general dentistry with an emphasis in Endodontics while, at the same time I was a PhD Candidate and a part-time clinical Assistant in the Department of Endodontology at the Aristotle University Dental School where I contributed in assisting with the clinical and laboratory training of dental students in Endodontics.
I have attended and participited in many seminars and conferences mainly in the field of Endodontics, and I have several publications and lectures in both Greek and European journals. I seek every opportunity to expand my knowledge in a way that will benefit not only my personal development, but also my co-workers and working environment as well.
I am an active certified member of the European Endodontic Society. I’m a full time member of British Dental Association, British Endodontic Society, and Hellenic Endodontic Society. Currently I’m in the process of applying for the GDC's Endodontic Specialist List.
Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth. Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, trauma to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
