I am Dr. Katy Anagnostou, a native of Athens, Greece, a Doctor of Dental Surgery since 1995 and I have been working in my own practice since 1998. I completed 4 years of post-graduate studies in Germany in Periodontics and Endodontics. I immigrated to Canada in 2012 and started practicing in Vancouver in the summer of 2016. I was an associate dentist in clinics on Vancouver Island and here in Burnaby until December 2017 which is when I acquired Burnaby Heights Dental Centre, my very own clinic. In my own clinic, I have the freedom to use the comphrehensive dentistry skills I have acquired to provide my patients with holistic and multifaceted oral care.
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 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.
