I was born in Athens in 1981 and graduated from the 1st Glyfada High School. I completed my undergraduate studies at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2005.
During my studies and later, advanced oral surgery was one of the fields that caught my attention and I was accepted to attend for more than two years in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic Of Hospital Of Trauma Rehabilitation with head director Dr Zachariades in the position of the head of the clinic. From the beginning of my studies I was working as an attendant at my father’s (Nikolaos Karasoulos) dental clinic, were I started my career as a professional certified Dentist after finishing the Dental School. He inspired me with his philosophy to respect every patient’s unique needs, and to acknowledge Dentistry as a whole beyond boundaries.
During my compulsory military service at the Hellenic Navy, I was working at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic of Athens Naval Hospital with head director Dr I. Fakitsas. In 2008 I was accepted to continue my specialty postgraduate M.Sc studies in Dental Implantology at the University of Manchester with program director the well renowned researcher M. Esposito, following the philosophy of Evidence Based Medical Care. I completed the programme with distinction. My thesis “Interventions of replacing missing teeth: augmentation of the maxillary sinus (systematic review)” is published at the prestigious International Cochrane Collaboration and at the European Journal of Oral Implantology.
In the meanwhile I had the opportunity to work as an associate in S. Davies’ private clinic, a Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, senior lecturer at the University of Manchester and head of the TemporoMandibular Disorders & Restorative Clinic. I was strongly inspired by his concept “don’t just be a tooth dentist, you have to be a system dentist”.
Throughout these years my dental beliefs were established towards a “holistic” approach of the patient, where dental issues and balance of the oral-temporal system have to be dealt as an integral part of the whole body.
Since 2010, I am the practice principal of the private Dental Clinic in Glyfada. The clinic is dedicated to people who demand a comprehensive approach for their treatment from a collaborative dental team. Dentistry is changing, and we are invited to do so through an interdisciplinary approach in a contemporary and advanced Dental Clinic.
