Dentists

Principal Dentist- Dr Chris Papastavros

Dr Chris Papastavros BDS (Hons) SYD.UNI
ASID Accredited (implants)
Invisalign Accredited

Chris received his Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Honours from Sydney University in 1990. He also graduated with the University Medal in oral medicine-oral surgery.

After 18 months working in private surgery, Chris opened his small practice at the corner of Waterloo and Wangee Rd Greenacre in April 1992. Thus, in 1992 the seed was planted that would eventually become Greenacre Dental.

By 2005 the surgery had expanded to three dentists, four dental assistants and two receptionists. The practice had expanded ten-fold since its inception and space demands made it necessary to relocate. In August 2007 the new surgery was completed at 147 Waterloo Rd Greenacre, designed and built from scratch to offer comfort as well as quality and personal dental care to all patients.

Chris has always made the point of staying up to date in dentistry. In 1995 he was on the teaching staff of Westmead Dental School as a mentor to final year dental students. Between 1995 and 2000 he attended several advance restorative courses with emphasis on cosmetic and reconstructive treatment options.

In 2005 Chris commenced his studies in dental implants, an area he is very interested in, obtaining his full accreditation by the Australian Society of Implant Dentistry in October 2007. With this option, Chris can now offer full mouth rehabilitation, combining the disciplines of gum treatment, complex restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry to provide solutions to almost any situation presented to him.

Finally, in February 2008 Chris became accredited for Invisalign, allowing for orthodontic correction with invisible aligners within the practice.

corporateIn 2010, Dr Papastavros became a corporate sponsor of the NRL’s Canterbury Bulldogs, being an enthusiastic fan since he was a young boy. He regularly performs restorative and emergency dentistry on first-grade players and the Bulldogs sporting and commercial team, and continues spreading his passion for oral health and maintenance beyond the walls of the surgery. In 2013, he also became one of the Western Sydney Giant’s dentists, providing regular instruction on emergency dentistry during AFL sporting.

He regularly gives talks to pre-schools and senior citizens on oral health promotion and education. Chris and his team at Greenacre Dental are proud to be active members of the community. He is committed to the wellbeing of his patients and creative solutions to their dental needs, and prides himself on developing  healthy smiles.

 

 

 

 Dr Stephen Civadelic B Dent (Hons) SYD UNI

ASID Accredited

Dr Stephen Civadelic graduated with honours from Sydney University in 2005. He started practicing alongside Chris in January 2006. Like the others dentists in the practice, Stephen particularly relishes the value  education and the accumulation of knowledge which keeps his skills always current.

He completed the ASID implant course in October 2007 and then completed stage IV for advanced surgical and implants cases in January 2008; he is one of a few dentists to complete stage IV within NSW. Dr Civadelic has also achieved a university degree in hypnosis.

In 2013, Dr Civadelic completed a Bachelor of Medicine and is currently working in a hospital setting; this furthers his knowledge on the importance of maintaining optimum oral care to better general health and wellbeing as well as community health.

Stephen’s calm, sensitive and empathetic nature is a wonderful asset when nervous patients attend the practice. He is a very good listener which is an important aspect of being an effective dental treatment provider and a valuable member of our practice.
