How it all began
Dimitrios graduated from the National University of Athens, Greece in 2007 after which he completed his military service as a general dentist in the Greek army. He then worked as a private practitioner in a Specialist Oral Surgery Referral Practice. In 2009 he moved to the UK and worked as an associate dentist in a mixed NHS/Private practice in Berkshire: a position, which he held for almost 2 years.
Career / Speciality
Close to the end of 2010 he was accepted in the world renowned Eastman Dental Institute and hospital, UCL for a full time 3 year specialist training course in Periodontology and Implant Dentistry, the only program in UK that is recognised by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP). At the end of his training, he was awarded a Masters of Clinical Dentistry (MClinDent) and became a Specialist in Periodontics. His research was on systemic biomarkers and periodontitis, which is a very promising tool for the diagnosis of periodontal diseases.
Currently, he is working in several referral based practices in England providing non-surgical, surgical periodontal therapy and implant placement with and without the use of regenerative materials and techniques as well as periodontal plastic surgery. He is a clinical teacher at King’s College London, an invited speaker and trainer in the Greek Scientific Society of Oral Surgery as well as providing verifiable CPD to general practitioners and hygienists in the UK.
He is a member of the Greek and British Society of Periodontology (BSP), the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), the Greek Scientific Society of Oral Surgery and the International Team of Implantology (ITI).
