I could not be happier with my decision!

5 50 Cosmetic Dentist Consultation • Paid: 3300 €

Having gone to several orthodontists for an initial review, some even proposing teeth removal to alleviate overcrowding and allow space, I went with Dr. Julia as she was professional, approachable and listened to my concerns.
I went with the Forestadent Lingual option on both arches as I work in a client-facing environment and am a little vain and couldn't bear the thought of a mouth full of metal.
I could not be happier with my decision! Initial treatment time was estimated 12-18 months but my mouth is transformed (!) within 7 months - and I got my braces off last week! 7 months!!
As You would expect; there were obviously some down points but these were absolutely minimal. Having to eliminate hard foods like apples and carrots, Additionally, I was lisping the first few weeks of wearing the braces, to much amusement of my partner but you just have to get used to that and keep your eyes on the price. 7 months is really nothing in the grand scheme of things - I just cannot believe I get to spend my 30th birthday with a big grin on my face!!! Thanks Dr. Julia.

Lovely surroundings - there is such a great feel in both Ekali and Melissia, both clinics are light and airy, benefitting from modern interior. All staff I came into contact with were smiling, helpful and really nice.
I travelled from northern Europe for this clinic, it really is worth it.

Was very professional

Orthodontist Consultation

I would like to start my review from the result which is excellent. We achieved our target to bring every single tooth in line :-) and this within a very short timeframe. The whole therapy was very professional: from the first explanations of the possibilities of the therapy, the checks through all the single treatments. Important for me was also the flexibility concerning the times of the appointments and that Julia Vlachojannis never was in a hurry. She always took the time which was necessary and cared about my whole person even if I had a question outside of my tooth case :-).

Highly knowledgeable and very warm



I just finished my treatment with invisible aligners at Dr. Julia Vlachojannis" dental office in Ekali and I couldn"t be any happier. Dr. Vlachojannis did an excellent job and my dream of straight teeth came true within such a short period of time!

Her professionalism and expertise is absolutely remarkable. Dr. Vlachojannis is a highly knowledgeable and very warm person. With her great heart she made me feel comfortable, relaxed and well taken care of at any time. Every single visit became an enjoyable experience. Dr. Vlachojannis truly cares about her patients and the achievement of high quality results.

Dr. Vlachojannis and her staff simply go the extra mile to make you feel like you are the most important patient! All of the equipment is state of the art, everything is explained thoroughly and completely, they are extremely accommodating. All appointments were made very easily and according to my scheduling needs.

I strongly recommend Dr. Vlachojannis to anyone who is looking for a highly professional and skilled orthodontist.

Dr. Vlachojannis, thank you for the great work you have done!

Treated by: Dr Julia Vlachojannis

Dear Julia, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your orthodontic treatment with the Invisalign system! You were by far the best patient I ever had concerning the wear-time of the aligners (a close 100% ;))and assuring a fast result in twice the average time. Bravo for your courage and perseverance! Dr. Julia

She is very knowledgeable, professional and kind

Orthodontist Consultation

I would highly recommend Dr. Julia Vlajogiannis as an orthodontist. She is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. In addition, she is excellent at communications -- something that a lot of doctors and dentists have trouble with - from letting me know what to expect, to explaining the entire orthodontic process. She is more conservative in her approach, and willing to do only parts of treatment if you don't want to commit to more extensive treatment. She is very understanding about people's choices around treatment for cosmetic vs. non-cosmetic reasons. I trust Dr. Vlajogiannis and know she loves what she's doing and takes pride in her work, treats her staff well, and is kind and professional to her patients. I also took my son for a check-up and even him, who is not very brave, felt very comfortable with the procedure. The waiting area is a plus especially for young ones who can relax and enjoy some playing.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction, Dental X-Ray

I’ve had a wisdom tooth extraction in the Center. From the first moment I’ve felt like being treated as a friend in the office of Mr. Vlachojannis. The consultation started with an X-ray, taken while I’ve been sitting in the dental chair. The picture was projected to the large screen above the chair and I’ve been explained in detail about the problem and the possible solutions to my toothache. I choose the extraction and the procedure lasted about 40 mins, because the doctor was very careful about keeping me absolutely pain-free! and about leaving the fastest healing wound in my mouth. The aftercare was excellent as well and the price was reasonable.

Smile now with self-confidence

Ultrasonic Scaling, Dental Implants, Invisalign™ • Paid: 10301 €


Words cannot express how happy I am to be a patient at the Athens Center of Dental Expertise! I was always very afraid of dentists, as each visit meant to suffer from pain.

MSc Christian Vlachojannis reflects painless dentistry. Periodontal ultrasonic cleaning for gum disease prevention with the AIR FLOW System is a pleasure. The surgical placement of the high quality STRAUMANN Implant was painless and lasted only 35 minutes. No work loss, I was back at work the next day!

MSc Dr Julia Elodie Vlachojannis performed a Clear Aligner (INVISALIGN) therapy to adjust my crowded upper front teeth. Orthodontic therapy is never too late, my teeth were uprighted IN JUST THREE MONTHS!

I smile now with self-confidence, thanks to the help of Drs. Vlachojannis.

Treated by: Dr Julia Vlachojannis

Thank you very much for your enthusiastic review! We are looking forward seeing you for your maintenance appointment this October!

Accelerated Braces™

Accelerated Braces™ - Center Of Dental Expertise

Treatment with self-ligating braces. Self-ligating braces are defined as "a [dental] brace, which utilizes a permanently installed, moveable component to entrap the archwire"One of the most significant differences from conventional dental braces is the absence of elastic ligature (bands or ties). Self-ligating braces typically are smaller and more aesthetic since a metal door is required to hold wires in place (this prevents "invisible" or clear options of these braces, with the exception of 3M Unitek who have devised a hybrid bracket called the "Smartclip"). They also tend to stand off the teeth further toward the lips and cheeks. The ties on this type of brace are used to hold the archwire in place. 

The self-ligating braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, thus reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth. However, there are many similarities to typical braces, such as the fitting on such appliances; self-ligating braces are glued onto the teeth and are not removable until treatment is complete. Regular cleaning is also essential for effective treatment and desirable results.

250 € - 3500 €

Adult Braces

Minimal orthodontic treatment for adults with the help of Temporary Anchorage Devices. We perform intrusion, extrusion & distalization of teeth for implant site preparation. We can also help with gummy smiles and with aesthetics!

600 € - 4000 €

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces - Center Of Dental Expertise
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Ceramic braces are nearly invisible!

This type of dental braces are suitable for patients concerned about their appearance, as the ceramic brackets are translucent blending with the natural tooth colour, but they are much more expensive. However, ceramic brackets are also more brittle and prone to breakage, so they are not recommended for cases that require large pressures to move teeth.

Child Braces

Depending on the malocclusion of your child, Phase I might be indicated. Indications for early orthodontic treatment are for example anterior or posterior crossbite. The treatment expenses for Phase I will be deducted from the total if a Phase II treatment is necessary.

Damon™ Braces

Guaranteed for 5 years.

Damon braces are based on one of the modern technologies in orthodontics called ‘self-ligation’. For this reason, they are also referred to as ‘Self Ligating Braces’. Unlike classic braces, Damon brackets do not require ligatures or small bands that are usually used to keep the archwires in place. They offer a lower-friction solution for teeth straightening. The Damon brackets use a "sliding-door" technology that allows the wire to slide back and forth inside the bracket causing less friction. Therefore they are considered more comfortable for the patient than the other types of dental braces. Also, Damon brackets offer faster orthodontic treatment time and a smaller number of adjustments.

500 € - 3600 €

Fixed Braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces - Center Of Dental Expertise
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Treatment with lingual braces, 2d or 3d!

Lingual (hidden) braces are a special type of orthodontic braces fitted to the back surfaces of the teeth. They look like traditional metal braces with wires but they are not that visible from the front. As they are not easily noticed by others, lingual braces are also referred to as ‘hidden braces’.

 Lingual dental braces are more expensive than traditional metal braces and require a specially trained orthodontist for the specific type of braces.

500 € - 3700 €

Metal Braces

Metal braces are out of stainless steel.

Generally, these traditional metal braces are the most economic option if you are looking for cheap braces. They should not be used by those who are allergic to nickel.

Orthodontic Retainer

Orthodontic Retainer - Center Of Dental ExpertiseOrthodontic Retainer - Center Of Dental Expertise
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Orthodontic retainers are custom-made devices, made usually of wires or clear plastic, that hold teeth in position after surgery or any method of realigning teeth. They are most often used before or after dental braces to hold teeth in position while assisting in the adjustment of the surrounding gums to changes in the bone. Most patients are required to wear their retainer(s) every night at first, with many also being directed to wear them during the day - at least initially. There are three types of retainers typically prescribed by orthodontists and dentists: Hawley, Essix, and Bonded (Fixed) retainers.

Inman Aligner™

Inman Aligner™ - Center Of Dental Expertise

The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. It is the orthodontic treatment of choice for adult relapse.

In the past, anyone with crooked teeth has had only a few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces work well but are slow and can also be costly.

Because of this many people choose to have porcelain veneers instead. This often involves heavy grinding of the teeth to get them into the right position first. As a result many patients choose to do nothing and just live with it.

However, the Inman Aligner now gives us all a very real alternative. Because it works so quickly and efficiently, if you don't like the idea of having brackets stuck to your teeth or waiting months and months for a clear brace to work, you can now have your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks.

This also means that anyone considering veneers to align their teeth now has a far more conservative solution. You might not even need veneers at all.

Even if veneers are absolutely necessary because your teeth are so discoloured and mis-shapen, the Inman Aligner the perfect way to align the teeth first quickly before the veneers are prepared. This way you can get a far more conservative solution.

The Inman Aligner is not just an orthodontic appliance. Many cosmetic dentists are calling it the "missing link between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry."

It has also been described as the "Greatest Innovation in Cosmetic Dentistry since the porcelain veneer".

Not every case is possible and of course, there are limitations, but if you are suitable you could get a fantastic smile in a matter of weeks and at far less cost.
