I am Dr. Katy Anagnostou, a native of Athens, Greece, a DDS since 1995 and working in my own practice since 1998. I completed 2 years of post-graduate studies in periodontology in Germany and another 2 years of training in implantology. I immigrated to Canada 5 years ago, but commuted for a few months at a time between my clinic in Athens and my home in Vancouver, until the summer of 2016. I was an Associate dentist in clinics on Vancouver Island and here in Burnaby until December 2017 when I acquired the Burnaby Heights Dental Centre.
I have a strong passion for giving people confidence in their smiles and my promise as a dentist is to provide them with the highly personalized, genuinely caring treatment they deserve. My first goal is to ensure my patient is as comfortable as possible. I understand how difficult this can be, as I suffered this anxiety as a child; now it motivates me to first get to know my patient as a person…not merely as a “case”. As a professional healthcare provider, I’ve adopted a holistic approach and seen many, many times how dental treatments can be life-changing; oral health has a huge impact on a person’s overall health and sense of well-being.
The technology of dentistry is rapidly evolving, and I’m dedicated to constant learning – staying current with the latest products, techniques, and equipment available. Outside the clinic, I take numerous continuing education classes, attend conferences and seminars, and participate in several professional study groups.
