Orthodontic Experts Welcomes Our Newest Doctor to the Rockford and DeKalb Communities!

At Orthodontic Experts, our growth is one of our proudest achievements, whether it be within our team members or into new communities. This time, Orthodontic Experts are happy to announce that another orthodontist has joined the team for both our DeKalb and Rockford clinic locations! Please stop in at 2496 Dekalb Avenue, Sycamore, Illinois 60178 or 5051 East State Street, Rockford, Illinois 61108 to meet Dr. Aris Panagiotou.

dr Aris Panagiotou was born and raised in Athens, Greece. During his bringing up, he learned and became trilingual in English, Greek, and Turkish – which would all become essential as his life progressed educationally and professionally. From a young age, though, he always knew he wanted to do oral work, hoping to become a dentist. However, his love for orthodontics grew progressively during his studies. The impact that orthodontic treatments have on all patients’ lives fostered a love – seeing the provided dream smiles is all Dr. Aris needs to feel fulfilled.

Back in 2009, Dr. Aris graduated from the School of Dentistry at the University of Athens in Greece. After this, he began his three-year journey through a specialty program of Orthodontics at the University of Marmara in Istanbul, Turkey; this resulted in his Master’s of Science degree. Once finished, he then moved to the Netherlands for five years where he worked as an Associate Orthodontist at a private practice. Then, in 2020, he moved out to Rochester, New York. It was here that he completed another specialty program in Orthodontics, but this time for two years, at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health.

during dr Aris’ free time, he enjoys spending time with his family. Additionally, he seeks out different traveling adventures, running, and watching soccer.

“Having worked in different countries and enjoying to be a part of a team, I would bring the ability to provide quality care, as well as a solid work ethic.” – dr Aris Panagiotou

Orthodontic Experts is super excited to have Dr. Aris Panagiotou on the team!
