DDS Athens (2000)
GDC number: 172571
I graduated from the Dental School of Athens in 2000 and since then have been developing my knowledge and skills through various courses and seminars. Through these courses I have developed a special interest in endodontics and cosmetic treatments.
My passion is helping patients get over their fear of dentistry by building up trust in a relaxing environment. I enjoy the creative part of dentistry where I get to provide pain free care and create beautiful smiles for my patients.
I am excited about being part of the highly skilled team at Drayton Dental, which only wishes to create a loving family practice with additional options for advanced dental treatments.
Outside of work I enjoy sports, painting and travelling.
DDS Athens (1999)
GDC number: 226428
My main focus is my patients. I always devote time and energy to understanding their needs and offering them dental treatment in a relaxing manner, especially nervous patients and children. My patients say I am a calm dentist who engenders trust and strives to give them a comfortable and relaxing experience.
I graduated from the Dental School of Athens University in 1999. I ran my own private practice in Greece until 2014, when my family and I decided to relocate to Norfolk - a place that felt like home from the first minute.
I have a special interest in endodontics (root canal treatments) and I will be completing an advanced certificate in endodontic treatments in 2018. I also have many years’ experience in providing resin composite veneers, white fillings, aesthetic crowns, bridges and dentures.
I am married with two sons. Even though my working days are very busy I always make time to cook for my family and exercise by running or going to the gym as it helps reduce my stress and allows me to stay active and healthy.
Dip Dent Hygiene RCS Edin 2009, Dip Dent Therapy RCS 2009, National Certificate NEBDN 2002.
GDC number: 129086
I am enthusiastic in educating patients in oral hygiene instruction, including the best tooth brushing techniques for their unique circumstances. I enjoy working with adults and children, especially those who are nervous about visiting a dental practice as I hope my caring and gentle manner helps put them at ease.
As well as being a fully trained dental hygienist and therapist, I am qualified in taking impressions and x-rays, as well as extracting deciduous (milk) teeth, restoring teeth with amalgam (metal) and composite (tooth-coloured) fillings and adding fissure and fluoride sealants. I can also treat highly nervous patients with inhalation sedation.
I have been incredibly lucky to travel to Africa to volunteer in a remote part of Kenya to provide vital dental treatment to the Maasai and I hope this is something I can continue to do for many years to come.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with friends and family and my hobbies include horse riding, running, walking and baking.

During the last 10 years I have worked in a variety of settings around the county including NHS, private and specialist practices, and the prison dental service. This has provided me with a vast amount of experience in providing the best care for a wide range of patients, even the extremely anxious.

Trainee Dental Nurse
I have always had an interest in dentistry so I am really grateful that I have the opportunity to train with such a fantastic team at Drayton dental to achieve my goal of becoming a qualified dental nurse.
I want to ensure all of our patients have a positive experience and are happy with the service they receive. In the future I hope to do further training and explore more of dentistry.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family and playing badminton.
I have worked front of house in many companies during my career, from retail to banking. Therefore, I understand a sincere smile goes a long way, as does being happy to help.
I feel proud to be working with a team who are passionate about providing excellent patient care and going that extra mile to exceed individual needs.
When not working, I enjoy yoga, entertaining with friends and family, going to classic car rallies and festivals, visiting interesting places and gardening.
