Why He Was Nominated

Dr. Papadopoulos brings both classic and cutting-edge elements to his work. “My practice is in a schoolhouse that’s more than 150 years old,” he says. “We just finished an extensive remodel, and in addition to lots of schoolhouse antiques and old framed report cards, we also invested in all the latest dental technology: lasers, digital radiographs, CAD/CAM and a milling chamber.”

Exiciting New Trend

“The coolest thing in dentistry right now is single-visit implant restorations. I take a digital scan of the implant, and an hour later, the patient is walking out with an e-max crown over a titanium base. If you’re not doing this in your office yet, you’re missing out.”

Something People Don't Know

“Cooking is one of my hobbies, a good way to get my mind off daily stress.”
