Graduated with honors from European University of Cyprus I decide to complete a PG certificate in Aesthetic Dentistry. When it comes to patients, my priority is a positive, pleasant dental experience and a personalised approach since each patient and their smile is special.

After graduation, I decided to move to the United Kingdom and join Shelton Dental Centre without second thoughts. I provide both NHS and Private treatments including Invisalign orthodontics, tooth whitening, composite bonding, veneers, Botox and fillers. My drive is to understand my patient’s needs and wants so I can deliver the best treatment possible, make them happy and leave my dental room always with a smile .  

Furthermore, my plans for the future is to expand my knowledge in Dental Implantology and minor surgery techniques.

Outside dentistry I love travelling and exploring different cultures all around the world, spending time with my family and friends and also going to the gym.
