Nikolaos GkraniasGDC No. 85048

Dr. Gkranias received his Diploma of Dental Surgeon in 2000 from the University of Athens, Greece. From 2000 until September 2003 he worked as a general dentist in private practices and a dental hospital in Athens Greece. In 2003 he was accepted in the 3-year Periodontology course in the world-renowned UCL Eastman Dental Institute, London. The Eastman MClinDent(Periodontology) program is one of the 11 european periodontology programs, and the only one in UK, that is accredited by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP). In September 2006 Dr. Gkranias graduated from the program and passed his MClinDent examination and EFP accreditation with distinction.

During his last year of the program and thereafter Dr. Gkranias has been working in private dental practices in the major London area offering periodontal treatment. He is currently sharing his time between private practice and the UCL Eastman Dental Institute where he is taking part in clinical dental research and will be working towards a PhD degree at the Department of Periodontology.

Nikolaos is currently working closely with our dental team providing periodontal treatment at the Henderson House Dental Practice. He welcomes referrals for all aspects of periodontal case modalities, including:

diagnosis and treatment of chronic periodontitis, aggressive periodontitis and periodontitis associated with systemic conditions;
presence of localised problems following non-surgical periodontal treatment, such as non-responsive periodontal defects, furcation involvement or endo-perio lesions, where access surgery, resective surgery, or regenerative procedures (membranes and/or bone grafts and/or enamel matrix proteins) may be indicated;
presence of recession defects or mucogingival deformities which are progressing or require cosmetic enhancement and would benefit from periodontal plastic surgery procedures for soft tissue management, e.g. root coverage, increase of keratinised tissues;
aesthetic crown lengthening;
surgical procedures for dental implants placement alone or in combination with ridge augmentation or sinus lifts.

Dr. Nikolaos Gkranias is based in the Henderson House practice and runs Saturday periodontal clinics.
