1995-today: Private Practice for children, adolescents and people with special needs

Attending all these years dental meetings worldwide and in Greece. I was invited several times to present children’s issues on oral health at kindergartens, day nurseries and primary schools in Greece and abroad, voluntarily. Also voluntarily, I shared my experties as a pediatric dentist with special scientific magazines on children’s health as well as similarly TV shows.


- tip of the day -


The whole spectrum of dental work is provided:



In many cases, at a very young age children have a  lot of enamel defects that are inherited or even acquired. The soonest we detect those, we can prevent pulp exposure.



Sealants on primary molars  and of course on permanent molars can reduce the DMF index (Decayed- Missing- Filled)



There are few cases that the pediatric dentist should interfere before the orthodontist. Cases like space maintaining, regaining of space and correction of crossbite can only help and gain time  for possible future orthodontic treatment. It has to be understood that every child on orthodontic treatment is a high risk candidate  for caries lesion and gum infection. As it was mentioned before, only few cases need that early intervention. Nowadays, it is a general phenomenon to see almost every child  at  a young  age with different types of orthodontic treatment. In those cases, we have no benefits from that.

What should be done is to wait for a more advanced dental and skeletal age, around 11 yrs old.



All necessary restorations take place based on caries extension and esthetics. Also gum disease are treated to prevent future periodontic problems and inflammation.



An every day situation. Two factors are important:
1) Immediate treatment and
2) Permanent follow-up. Based on the degree of trauma, different procedures enable to restore the damage.



In cases where a specific specialty is needed we collaborate with our specialized colleagues. Complicated oral surgery cases, like extraction of impacted third molars, require the experties of our oral surgeon. Similarly, advanced esthetic restorations will be taken care of our prosthodontic/ endodontic team. Also all orthodontic problems that demand a second phase of correction can be handled perfectly by our orthodontist.

Tips for the parents

OHI (Oral Hygiene Instructions)
From  the moment our baby (around 6 months old) has its 1st tooth, oral hygiene should start. No toothpaste needed at this young age BUT plaque removal is mandatory.
Nutritional habits
The last “activity”  before going to bed at night, is brushing which should be done by an adult. It is an illusion to tell our children NOT to eat sugar because sugar exists almost everywhere. We can find many types of sugar in so called “healthy food” like fruit, milk (even breast milk), juice,  etc.

So what we have to do is change the time of sugar intake during the day. Also avoid sticky food (chewing gum, candies, etc) and try to eat “self cleaning” snacks (apple, carrot, cucumber, yelllow hard cheese). At night when the child uses a baby bottle to drink milk, after finishing, remove it and clean mouth afterwards.

Correct timing
Prevention is better than cure. So a visit at the age of 3 yrs old is appropriate to start the 1st oral prophylaxis (cleaning) and fluoride application of the child.

A recall exam is necessary every 6 months to avoid possible caries lesions and gum disease. Otherwise recommended by the pediatric dentist, children with high risk for caries should make a visit every 3 months.

Emergency situations
*I would like to emphasize again the importance of IMMMEDIATE  treatment after dental trauma/injury. We remain calm and we go to the pediatric dentist

*In cases of dental abcess (swelling), a correct diagnosis should be done. If antibiotic is needed the pediatric dentist will inform us.

*P.S:  Special request

Do not trust always internet OR other  “diagnosis” from other parents. It is very important to check the bibliography sources. Thank you, I appreciate your cooperation.
