Dr Ilias Marinopoulos

Specialist Orthodontist GDC: 101601

DDS, MSc (Gothenberg, Sweden)

Dr. Marinopoulos performs work that has the hallmarks of class. He is internationally renowned for his extraordinary ability to make use of the more difficult techniques involved in cosmetic dentistry.

Having graduated from the University of Athens Dental School in 2002, he has enjoyed years in some of the most respected dental clinics in London which no doubt contribute to his always developing skill set.

Before coming to London, Ilias spent three years in a military hospital. This allowed him to work on many extreme cases and therefore fine-tune his basic dental techniques before moving on to study Orthodontics. He did this in Aarhus and then later in Sweden, where in 2010 he graduated from Sahlgrenska Academy with a distinction.

She undertook further training in maxillofacial and oral surgery and paediatric dentistry before embarking on her specialist training in Orthodontics at Guy’s Hospital and the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead. This allowed her to treat both children and adults, requiring multidisciplinary care from other specialties. In addition Annika has treated a number of adult patients requiring the diagnosis and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.

Her Masters research has recently been presented at a Medical World Congress in Maui, Hawaii and is due to be published in the European Journal of Orthodontics. She has also been invited to speak both regionally and internationally, in Austria and Italy.
