Dr. Anna-Maria Yiannikos
With an innovative approach to holistic dentistry, Dr Anna-Maria Yiannikos creates a perfect and unique smile that fits the face and bone structure. Facial Aesthetic Design (FAD) is the approach of all pioneers in aesthetic dentistry. Through the FAD approach Dr Yiannikos has the ability to change the entire face by creating a new smile with porcelain veneers leading to a young and fresh smile.
The Director of the formerly known Yiannikou Dental Polyclinic has evolved the dental services into a more harmonic approach to complete body health for the past 22 years. The year 2012 has marked the renaissance of the clinic and with its new name, Yiannikos – Centre for Holistic Dentistry, it aims to enhance the beauty and health of its patients.
A graduate of the Dentistry School of the University of Athens (Greece), Dr. Anna-Maria Yiannikos continued her education by completing a two-year Masters in Lasers in Dentistry at the University of Aachen in Germany. Her dedication and love to dental lasers naturally led to the establishment of AALZ Cyprus, the first franchise of AALZ Germany, an institution with a history of successful seminars for the Laser Safety Officer Course. Dr. Anna-Maria has also successfully completed her M.B.A. at the CIIM College in Cyprus.
The most recent academic achievement of Dr. Yiannikos was the successful completion of the Master Clinician Programme in Aesthetic Dentistry, organized by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2012.
