Dr. Anthony (Tony) Michelakis is a 1990 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. After practicing 7 years in Warren, Ohio, Dr. Michelakis opened a practice on Oak Island, NC. Tony has two daughters, Lilly and Carly, both graduates of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Michelakis and his family love working and living in Brunswick County. From day one they felt welcomed into the community with open arms. “I thank God every day for the opportunity to live and work in such a wonderful community,” Dr. Michelakis said.
“We proudly deliver all phases of dentistry without patients having to leave Brunswick County.”
Dr. Michelakis enjoys all phases of dentistry, especially dental implants, root canal therapy, and crown and bridge work. He is also trained to treat Sleep Apnea with an oral appliance, one he even uses himself.
In November 2008, Dr. Tony completed 216 hours of continued education in a nine-month implant continuum taught by the Triangle Dental Institute in Research Triangle Park, NC. His training included lectures, workshops, and one-on-one mentoring on implant surgical placement and restoration, associated bone preservation and ridge augmentation grafting, and connective tissue grafting.
Dr.Tony received a Fellowship Award from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). The ICOI was founded in 1972 and has 12,000 members worldwide in 89 countries. It is the world’s largest dental implant organization, as well as the world’s largest provider of continuing dental implant education and currently has 2,582 active Fellows in the United States. The awarding of Fellowship status is one of the highest honors a professional society, such as the ICOI, can bestow on a dental professional involved in oral implantology. Nominees achieve Fellowship status through their efforts in education, research and actual clinical experiences.
