We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
Registered Dental Hygienist
In order to ensure my patients’ excellent level of oral health, I provide preventive cleanings, exams, and non-surgical, conservative periodontal treatments. I have more than 25 years of experience in general dentistry and about 15 years of clinical experience in the specialty of periodontics. This also allows me to educate patients about their dental and gum health and the best ways to keep their teeth healthy and beautiful for years to come!
I am married and have two children and two cats. In my time outside the office, I enjoy weight training, going for walks, and snowshoeing at Horn Pond in Woburn!
Dental Lab Technician
I own and run Studiodontics Dental Lab which is now located within Wakefield Custom Dental in order to serve our patients better. I love the art of mimicking natural dentition using artificial materials. It is an ongoing challenge in our field, and I never get bored of keeping up with new technologies and materials. My wife, Dr. Karogiannis, and I are very fortunate to have an amazing team supporting us. We are all very dedicated to our patients.
Dr. Karogiannis and I have two beautiful children, George and Kristina. I am very artistic and love creating anything, from the smallest drawing to the biggest construction project. I love the challenge of creating something from nothing, especially when it can improve other people’s lives
I work chairside with Dr. K. assisting with all procedures and impressions. Some of my independent duties include taking digital X-rays in which I received my certification at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. I am also responsible for whitening our patients’ teeth and helping to create beautiful smiles! My most important job is to make each patient feel comfortable and relaxed during their appointment. I really enjoy the friendships I’ve established with so many of our patients and their families. Here at Wakefield Custom Dental, we are like a family too. I enjoy my team’s friendly and professional attitude, and appreciate the support and confidence of Dr. Karogiannis.
At home, I have a 13 year-old son who is in his last year of middle school and very busy with sports. I enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, and spending time with my family. Working out is a passion of mine, so I fit that in whenever possible!
I am a graduate of the University of New England located in Portland, ME with a license in Dental Hygiene as well as, Administrating Local Anesthesia. I am certified in CPR, Radiology, OSHA infection control and HIPPA compliancy.
I love watching my patients get motivated to improve their oral health through the education I can provide them. I feel an upmost importance when assuring the patient’s treatment is fully understood and agreed upon. My goal is to ensure my patient feels comfortable while reaching a high oral preventative care.
While attending UNE I was a student athlete on the varsity Ice Hockey team for 4 years. I also love to volunteer and get involved with community service. When I am not in the office I enjoy working out, cooking and spending time with family and friends. At home I speak Italian and Spanish with my family. Being raised in Wakefield, MA I am excited to be a part of the Wakefield Custom Dental team.
I have the unique opportunity to greet each patient, both new and existing and give them a warm welcome into our practice. I enjoy helping each individual achieve their optimum dental health. I will work my absolute hardest to ensure that we both have an understanding of any insurance coverage you may have. Together we will work to find the best way to utilize your benefits. If you ever have a question, please reach out to me. I am always here to make you feel as educated and happy as possible when it comes to your dental needs.
I have lived in Wakefield for almost 10 years. I am blessed to live in this great town with my husband Brian, and my two little boys Richard and Robert. We also have a 9 year old English bulldog, who loves to take space up on the couch! We are very active always going to the local parks, farmers market and enjoying all that Wakefield has to offer. If you ever see us around, be sure to say hello!
