Let’s hear from Greg himself:

 

  1. Where did you start your dentistry career?

 

I started my career in dentistry in Athens in Greece where I received my Bachelors in Dentistry from the National and Kaporistrian University of Athens. From November 2022 – August 2023 I worked as a soldier dentist in the Greek Army Forces. 

 

  1.  How do you spend your spare time?

 

In my spare time I am a basketball coach so I enjoy coaching and playing basketball. Since I moved to Ireland I have taken up cycling as there are many beautiful cycling routes around Kilkenny and Carlow.

 

  1. Why did you want to pursue dentistry as a career?

 

When I first entered dental school, I wasn’t absolutely sure that this was the career path I would like to follow. However, my engagement with the dental courses made me change my mind and now I am keen on providing oral health care to my patients.

 

  1. What is your top tip for Oral Health?

 

My top tip for Oral Health is to flossing, I don’t think it is a widely practiced by people as it should be. While everyone knows to brush their teeth, not as many people have flossing in their oral health routines.
