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 12 years in the UK, Dr Loukas has placed and restored over 3,000 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.

COVID NOTICE

Announcement of opening day - 15th June 2020

We are excited to welcome patients into the practice from the 15th June 2020.

  • Dental Implant consultations
  • Implant referrals from other dentists
  • Patients with implant complications
  • Teeth extractions

Our opening hours have been extended. This allows extra flexibility for the cleaning time between appointments and ensures the environment remains as safe as possible for our patients, clinicians and practice colleagues.

As a private, specialist clinic we operate a single patient policy and do not accept walk ins, please call or email us to make an appointment. Dr Loukas is also able to run virtual consultations, helping us to address our patient’s needs sooner as well as reduce the number of face to face appointments where possible. 

To reach our team please call 01794 399987 or email us at

info@drloukasimplants.com

If you have any of the symptoms of Covid-19/Coronavirus, please let us know as soon as you can; do not attend your appointment and follow the government guidelines around self-isolation.


Before your appointment

To ensure that you have all the information easily to hand, we will send you all the key information before your appointment - including who you will be seeing, what treatment you will be having, the cost of your treatment and , what to do when you arrive. It is possible that we may ask you to complete and return a medical history form that will be sent and completed digitally, so please do not print this out and bring with you.


On the day of your appointment

Before you depart for the practice, we ask that where possible, you have already visited the lavatory, have ensured that you are hydrated and already brushed your teeth It is important that you do not bring a large number of things into the practice with you, so please ensure you only bring necessary items with you.

When you arrive, the doors will be locked, so please call to let our team know you have arrived and either stay in your car or outside of the practice (whilst maintaining good social distancing protocol) if you have arrived on foot. To minimise risk, please ensure you attend your appointment alone unless you require assistance or are supporting a child or someone vulnerable. We are encouraging card payments only so where possible, please do not arrive with cash.


Entering the practice

When it is time for your appointment, one of our team will call you to notify you to approach the practice. Please let us know if you do not have a mobile phone beforehand and we will make alternative arrangements. Before entering the practice, one of our trained colleagues will take your temperature to ensure you do not have a fever and invite you in if your temperature is safely below 37.5 degrees centigrade. Unfortunately, if you are above 37.5 degrees, we will have to rearrange your appointment for the safety of all those in practice.

Once you have been invited into the practice, you will be asked to sanitise your hands and correctly place a facemask on, which you will be shown how to do. We will require payment before your appointment (if appropriate), ideally by card, using our freshly disinfected card machines to ensure you can have a swift departure once your treatment has finished. Our practice colleagues will be behind protective plastic screens, but this is for the safety of everyone. No other patients will be waiting in the reception area and you will be guided to the appropriate treatment room, following the distance markers that will be displayed throughout practice.  


Treatment

Before you enter the treatment room, you will need to leave any loose belongings like your coat or bag in the designated box provided. Upon entering the treatment room, our teams will be wearing extra Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as in order to provide you with the right care and service, they cannot adhere to social distancing recommendations. This may mean that it is more difficult to see our colleagues and clinicians’ faces, but please be reassured that they will be the usual friendly team. Naturally we are also ensuring that each treatment room is carefully cleaned and disinfected after each patient. You will be asked to wash your hands and to place your mask into a plastic bag.

If you are attending for a treatment that requires an Aerosol Generating Procedure (AGP) - any procedure that has the potential to cause spray - you will be asked to carefully swill your mouth with a hydrogen peroxide solution for 1 minute. One of our team will talk you through this on the day. 


After the appointment

When your treatment is complete, you will replace your face mask, wash your hands and collect your belongings from the box outside the treatment room door. Before you leave the practice, you will dispose of your mask at the door and leave after using hand sanitiser one last time, before we say goodbye. If you have any questions after the appointment, we will be able to call you to discuss this further asour aim is to minimise your time in the practice, for your own safety.
