Dr Konstantinos Loukas qualified as a dentist in 2000. He embarked upon a two year residency at the Dental School of Athens where he was allocated as a clinical and lab instructor supervising students in the prosthetic department. At the same time, he served in the Airforce Military Hospital of Athens performing general and prosthetic dentistry.
Between 2008 and 2012 he completed a postgraduate training course in Bristol and Bath leading to an MSc in Dental Implantology. His specialist area of research during this study was on implant prosthetic complications.
Between 2017 and 2018 he completed an implant residency at the University of Bern working with Professor Daniel Buser and Professor Thomas von Arx. As well as this residency he completed the well known, advanced Bern Master Classes in guided bone regeneration, Sinus Lift, and Implant complications.
In 2018 he continued his studies by undertaking a PhD in Prosthodontics and is currently engaged in postgraduate research for Implant Prosthodontics at The University College London, Eastman Dental Institute.
In 2019 he completed the Regenerator program with Professor Urban for complex vertical augmentation procedures.
Over the last 14 years in the UK, Dr Loukas has placed and restored over 3,500 Straumann implants. With practically perfect implant integration, he is operating an implant success-survival rate of 99.5%. His target is to build large bone volumes around his implants and to make sure that they have lasting durability.
Dr Loukas has extensive experience with complex cases and regularly treats a high volume of implant complications. As an official Straumann and ITI mentor, he trains and supports other dentists who are developing their implant skills. Dr Loukas is also a registered speaker for the ‘International Team for Implantology’ and a director for the ITI Study Club in Bournemouth & Poole.
