I have my cleanings and treatment at Dr Irinakis office for some time now and I can categorically say that his hygienists are the best in the business. Professional, caring, thorough and educational at the same time. I will always continue to clean my teeth there and preserve my health. Totally worth the extra bucks.

Dr Irinakis was very easy to communicate via text, which for myself is a big thing as I’m shy in person and over the phone. This small thing made a difference for me. And I also do agree with everyone else’s positive reviews on this forum.

I have seen 2 Periodontists, 2 Oral surgeons and 2 Prosthodontists in the last year. Now you’re thinking: “this is a difficult -beeeep- of a patient”. The fact is that I’m very detailed oriented and I have to be convinced by the doctor in front of me that he or she is the RIGHT person for ME. So Yes. A little over the top perhaps but hey!, I’m not taking any chances with my teeth! After meeting them all Dr Irinakis connected with me better than the others. He answered all my questions for over an hour with a “No BS” attitude which is what I needed. He read me well as a person and adjusted his communication with me accordingly. Excellent meeting. After our appointment I had further questions and he called me back to answer them in full over the phone. Now I can admit that I have bought into his treatment philosophy and attitude and will choose him over the others. Simple as that.

Implants can be scary but Dr Irinakis made the whole process easy for me. I did all my surgeries under sedation which was wonderful and stress free. Positive experience.

Thank you Dr Irinakis for your wonderful job on my father. Very elegant final look. The implants allow him now to chew normal food. We are very very happy. Thank you again.

I first met Dr. Irinakis close to 10 years now for my first (of a few) implants with him. I'm a specialist myself and first met Tassos when I was just out of medicine. I was impressed at that time and connected with him ever since. I carried that connection with me through my years in various hospitals, fellowships and mentorships and honestly, the trust I felt with Dr. Irinakis has not been replicated. He has been honest with me from the beginning and never pushy. I'm don't appreciate BS and have not received any from him. I can be a bit of a handful some times but Tassos has let me be myself in his presence and we've hit it off well. He's given me sound advice over the years and what has been even better is my freedom to connect with him online over the years and to receive advice and tips on dental treatment I received in the various cities I worked and trained in. I'll be seeing him again soon as I'll be needing his services again. Great guy. No BS. Total Trust.

To begin with, I am not a great fan of going to the dentist or any dentist associated activity. Besides that, I do appreciate everything Dr. Irinakis has done for me. Even from the very first call to book, I was impressed with the professionalism of his staff. I like it that emails are utilized in my communication with his office and the fact that I receive responses fast. Meeting Dr. Irinakis was another pleasant experience. He's straightforward, truthful and a very good communicator. His approach to my problem suits my personality and I look forward to the completion of my treatment. I very much recommend him and his office .

I'm a dentist who had not referred to Dr. Irinakis in the past until recently. Actually I do know of Dr. Irinakis and his reputation but out of convenience I referred my patients to a different periodontist who works very close to my office and never had a problem with. Recently a patient of mine insisted that she is referred specifically to Dr. Irinakis, hence my first referral to him. I must admit that although I have seen him lecture several times over the years in courses and conferences and therefore knew of the high quality of his results, I was blown away by his level of professionalism that was evident from his letters of communication with me, to his treatment of my patient and to how he dealt with her dental phobia. He identified work that my office had missed and informed the patient in a very subtle and professional manner, which instilled confidence in my patient to return to my office for further treatment. The results of that first referral looked beyond incredible and I have now started sending more cases his way. Every one of my patients who has thus far met with him has raved about the quality of care and gentle manners of his assistants and receptionists. I guess what I"m saying here is that moving forward I will be trusting a lot more patients of mine to his care including my own wife. Thank you Tasso.
