Meet the Team
Dr Stefanos Thomaidis
BDS, MSc Implant Dentistry (Warwick) – GDC Number: 82825
Stefanos, a Greek-American national, has been living and working in North Yorkshire for almost ten years. He has been practising dentistry for 20 years, having worked in numerous dental positions and departments during this time.
Following graduation from dental school, with an Honours grade on his degree, he served two years in a military dental hospital receiving valuable experience in many areas of dentistry.
In continuation, Stefanos worked for nine years for a dental corporate in Athens alongside a multidisciplinary team of specialists as an Associate and Lead Clinician. Prior to joining Diamond Smiles in 2009, Stefanos worked at Oasis Dental Care in Settle for six years, four of which in the position of Lead Clinician. Stefanos strongly believes in providing high quality dental treatment and services and for this reason he decided to follow the academic route of a structured university program in Implantology over standalone year courses.
Having completed a three-year Clinical Masters Degree (MSc) at Warwick University in Dental Implantology, an area he has been involved with theoretically and in practice for more than eight years, Stefanos is in a favourable position to provide a full range of implant treatments.
Trained to use most of the major implant systems, we currently use Nobel Biocare, Ankylos, and Osstem systems. Using global leaders in the ﬁeld will ensure patients receive the best treatment and assurance of long term availability.
