The Tripodakis Family

The father, Aris Petros Tripodakis, DMD (Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry, Tufts University), is a prosthodontist of international acclaim with over 40 years of experience. He cultivated in his children a strong philosophical inclination toward the world of dentistry, and, as a result, an understanding of the uniqueness, integrity and poise of each individual face.

Being an artist, their mother Ioanna Tripodaki contributed to the creative upbringing of her children, endowing them with artistic sensitivity and a deep appreciation of natural aesthetics.

Enriched with their family’s legacy in dentistry, Dimitris Tripodakis (DMD, Tufts University) and Despoina Tripodaki (DMD, University of Szeged) have founded the friendly practice Tripodakis Dental +.

Under the same roof, the other two children of the family, Irini and Leonidas, operate the modern dental lab TriDental, which Tripodakis Dental + is in close collaboration with.
