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!"
At a very young age, I became interested in the subject of art and tried to excel in becoming an artist. As I got older, I became more curious and fascinated with science and biology. Therefore, I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in the health profession. What was fascinating and interesting to me was the fact that the field of dentistry was somewhere in between art and science unlike any other health profession. Ultimately, becoming a dentist has allowed me to unite Science with Art, the two subjects that I excelled in but was so passionate about.
I was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved to Maryland when I was 13 years old. After completing my undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Maryland, I decided to move to Chicago. I completed my Master’s Degree in Bio-Medical Sciences - Clinical Studies and subsequently received my DMD degree in Dentistry from Midwestern University. I moved to New York, and completed my General Practice Residency at Woodhull Hospital in 2018. Upon completion of my residency program, I have been practicing dentistry in New York.
Some of my hobbies include traveling, cooking and exercising. I’m also a firm believer that music is the world’s common language and it unites people from different cultures. My passion for helping people is what drives me to continuously improve and strive to become the best dentist for my patients. I am strongly committed to changing the lives of my patients through their smiles.
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."
