Sofia Skarpalezos - Registered Dental Hygienist
As a Registered Dental Hygienist and a Certified Holisitic Health Counselor, I have always believed in treating my patients as an extension of my family. I have been the "heart of the practice" for over 23 years, serving the community and working alongside our 2 wonderful Periodontists. I take great pride in providing our patients with proper Oral Health Education, excellent clinical care combined with compassionate and highly professional individualized treatment. I incorporate my Holistic Health Training in my work since I am a firm believer in treating and healing the whole person-physically, emotionally and spiritually.
My ultimate goal is to preserve and maintain my patients natural dentition for life and to advice only when necessary surgical treatment, and replacement of diseased or failing teeth with Dental Implants. I strive to achieve this by working very closely with the Periodontist, the referring dentist and most importantly the patient in order to meet their needs and expectations. Its a team effort!
