Dr. Spyropoulos says, "I have been a Dentist in private practice in the Astoria community for over 25 years, but my passion for dentistry began at age fourteen when I was inspired by my father, who excelled in his work as a Dental Technician. I would often visit him at his dental lab where he shared his love of this field and taught me the basics of dentistry. As I grew up, I knew this was the path I would take.
I received my Bachelor of Arts from New York University in 1982 and my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from New York University College of Dentistry in 1986. After graduation I was asked by my peers to teach at the NYU College of Dentistry as an Assistant Clinical Professor. Later, I would serve as Faculty Coordinator, as well as Quality Control Supervisor for all lab work. I was diligent in my efforts and received numerous Awards and Citations.
As my own practice grew, I took a leave of absence from teaching to fully focus on my patients. But my experience as a dental professor taught me not only to give the best service to my patients, but also to educate my patients about the preventive measures they must take to keep their teeth and mouth healthy.
Offering my patients cutting-edge technology is also a hallmark of my practice. I now specialize in laser dentistry and offer many laser procedures where no anesthesia is required, for a more comfortable patient experience!"

Dental Hygienist Rosie Kizic says, "I obtained my Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene from Hostos Community College. Prior to that, I worked as a teeth whitening technician for several years. I enjoy learning what’s new in dental hygiene, and take great pleasure in educating my patients with what is necessary to have and maintain good oral hygiene. I like to get to know my patients individually, and take great pride in giving them high-quality dental care. A smile is one of the first things that people notice. It’s important to have an aesthetically beautiful smile but a healthy mouth as well. I am a member of the American Dental Hygienists Association and certified in CPR."
