Today we are joined by Dr. Antigone Skoulas to discuss choosing a START-UP or BUYING an Existing Dental Practice and much more!
Dr. Antigone Skoulas has a deeply engrained passion for helping people. She has the desire to serve beyond her current patients as a clinician, and rather impact the community holistically. Her well-rounded and unique education at UCLA (BS), University of Pacific (DDS), and Pepperdine (MBA) set her up for success in each of her future appointments and roles. She began a start-up dental practice from scratch in the financial district of San Francisco six years ago. Three years ago, she purchased and merged into an existing practice in Union Square where she is currently full-time.
She provides her patients with the highest standard of care, always advancing in her clinical technique and education. She is on the path to be a Kois Graduate, accredited with the AACD, and a fellow of the AGD hopefully within the next two year. Her clinical passions include porcelain veneers, the art of composite, adhesive dentistry, CAD/CAM design with digital workflow, and full mouth reconstructive cases. She loves building her portfolio through beautiful photography.
Dr. Skoulas has shined in the industry as a bright and talented leader. She was selected as the Vice Chair of the highly competitive California Dental Association New Dentist Committee. In addition, she held a role as a delegate to the CDA House of Delegates representing Los Angeles. During her 3-year tenure, she contributed significant amount of time and effort to creating progressive impact on many key issues. These positions allowed her to voice her opinion on policy changes that would affect the dental industry as a whole. Her input helped in reformatting the dental board examinations nationally, modifying the licensure examination to the option of portfolio testing, advancing the creation of a mid-level provider in oral healthcare, as well as providing input on changes in dental insurance for patients through Covered California.
Her passion to stay informed and impact change and progress in her industry and healthcare are very clear to everyone she touches. Her creativity is evident as she always goes above and beyond each of her obligations in order to provide progress for future generations and raise the bar in everything that she does.
