After graduating from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1989, Dr Spyrakis began his career in general dentistry. However, he soon noticed the limitations and problems that dentures caused. His patients were struggling with loose and ill-fitting replacement teeth that left them in discomfort and lacking in self-esteem. It was from his desire to offer patients a better treatment option that Dr Spyrakis found himself learning more and more about implant dentistry.
Since then, Dr Spyrakis has dedicated his career to implantology and restorative dentistry and has spent the last ten years travelling the globe to train with and learn from the very best. To build the knowledge that he has today, Dr Spyrakis has trained in:
- New York and Las Vegas, USA – to carry out intensive surgical implant training.
- Marseille, France – to study with, Dr Patrick Palacci and Dr Franck Renouard, innovative leaders in surgical implants.
- Sydney University, Australia – to complete a mini-residency in Oral Implantology.
- Malo Clinic, Portugal – to study with, the world-renowned Dr Paolo Malo himself, the founder of the All-on-4 technique.
Learning about the All-on-4 technique was a career-changing event for Dr Spyrakis. The revolutionary treatment gave him more options for implant placement and opened up the possibility of implants to previously unsuitable patients.
