Meet Dr. George Gounakis

Some people feel that implant dentistry falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry, but that’s not entirely accurate. Although implants certainly do improve one’s appearance, their impact goes way beyond the flash of a perfect smile.

Implants will enhance your smile and improve your function, your speech, and your ability to eat. My most gratifying moments as a dentist are when patients call to tell me, “Thank you, Dr. G; you’ve changed my life.”

Education and Background

I was born and raised in Windsor, Canada, in a very close-knit Greek family. I attended the University of Windsor in Ontario, where I earned my undergraduate degree in biology. I chose a warmer venue for my professional schooling, and graduated from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in 2001. I completed my fellowship in periodontology in 2004.

Staying on top of the latest developments in periodontics and implant dentistry means I constantly update my training. I attend multiple continuing education courses every year to keep my knowledge current and my skills honed with the very latest and best implant techniques.

Family and Community

When I’m not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing soccer, traveling, and snowmobiling in Canada.
