Dr. Nikolaos Gavrilis completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida, receiving a Bachelor Degree in Molecular Biology/Microbiology in 1995. Immediately after, he was accepted at New York University where he received his DDS. This was followed by a two year general residency at Woodhull Medical Center, where he served as Chief Resident during his second year. He furthered his studies by accepting a position at the University of Pittsburgh in the Prosthodontics Specialty Department and received his Prosthodontics Speciality Certificate in 2004. His training placed higher emphasis on Implant Surgery and Implant Restoration, and so in 2004 he received Fellow and Diplomate status at the International College of Oral Implantology, an independent organization responsible for accreditation, guidance, and to some degree, regulation in the field of dental implants. Upon completion of his Prosthodontics specialty, he decided he wanted to receive specialty trainings in Endodontics as well, which he also completed at the University of Pittsburgh in 2006. He has been in private practices since receiving his DDS and has been providing specialty care such as root canals and implant surgery in our offices since 2006. He enjoys his position with our company, as he feels he has encountered a wonderful setting which allows him to provide the best possible care to his patients in a care-free environment.
