About George Athansios

From the moment they walk into the offices of Dr. George Athansios, patients quickly understand that comfort and care are his top priorities. “While making smiles brighter and whiter is rewarding, it does not top alleviating someone’s tooth pain and discomfort,” he says. “Accomplishing that is the most gratifying feeling I experience at my practice.”

Now in his 11th year of practice, Dr. Athansios is very proud to have earned the most prestigious certification for implant dentistry: becoming a diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology, an achievement shared by less than 500 dentists nationwide. “Excelling in implant dentistry and having a continuous desire to improve my surgical skills is something that will not only help me be a better clinician, but will also enable me to provide services for a wider range of patients, including very challenging cases,” he says.

At his state-of-the art offices, dental surgeries can be planned digitally to allow for the most predictable and precise results. Dr. Athansios uses a 3-D printer, which facilitates on-the-spot dental models without the need for impressions; a 3-D CT scanner; intraoral cameras, and digital radiography. “We have the aspiration to restore everyone’s dentition and provide the confidence they need for a healthy lifestyle and to enjoy every day with a smile,” he says.

A graduate of UMDNJ, Dr. Athansios donates his time and services on mission trips to underserved communities in Asia and South America. He also serves as a volunteer with the Cedar Grove Fire Department.
