As I Was Interested In Digital Marketing, I Pursued Digital Marketing Course In Columbia Business School.

As For My Professional Background, I Began My Career In The Insurance Industry. At First, I Worked In The Recruitment Department And Was Involved In The Hiring And Onboarding Process Of Sales Agents.

After Seven Long Years, I Left The Corporate World To Work Full Time At Apostol Dental Cosmetic Center. It Has Been Six Years Now With Our Company. To Further My Knowledge, I Attended Various International Dental Marketing Seminars Especially Those Offered By The American Academy Of Cosmetic Dentistry, Which Dr. Jonas Apostol Is A Member Of. Currently, I Manage Our In-House Marketing Team And Work Closely With An External Digital Marketing Agency For Content Production.

Usually When People Think About Dentists, They Just Think Of Cleaning Or Dental Fillings. At Apostol Dental, We Are Changing This Perspective By Offering Services That Will Enhance Patients’ Smile, Appearance, And Outlook In Life. The Pandemic Hit Us Hard And Due To This Circumstance, Many People Started To Develop A Lot Of Insecurities, Tough Pressure, Low Self-Esteem, Leaving Them Hopeless.

Keeping In Mind That We Give Hope To The People That They Can Confidently Smile Again.

For My Success Mantra, Apart From Business Growth & Financial Aspect, I Consider Marketing As A Chance To Touch Lives, Opportunity To Help People & Make Them Feel Better About Themselves

This Procedure Requires Little To No Anesthesia And Can Be An Ideal Option For Improving The Appearance Of One’s Overall Smile. The Whole Process Takes Around One Week If There Are No Underlying Conditions (Such As Presence Of Infection, Tooth Fracture, And More.) Nowadays, People Also Suffer From Early Loss Of Teeth Due To Extraction Or Gum Problems, We Also Offer Dental Implants Or Zirconia Fixed Bridge For Missing Teeth Concerns. A Dental Implant Is A Small Titanium Fixture That Serves As A Replacement For The Root Portion Of A Missing Natural Tooth. They Provide Strong Foundation For Fixed Or Removable Replacement Teeth. Dental Implants Are A Safe, Proven And Well-Established Treatment. Life Span Of Dental Implant Is Sometimes Lifetime, Depending On How The Patient Takes Care Of It. A Fixed Bridge Is A Custom Device Anchored To Adjacent Teeth That Replaces One Or More Missing Teeth. In Order To Complete This Treatment, We Need To Touch The Teeth Beside The Missing Area To Accommodate The Space Where We Need To Fill In The Fixed Dental Prosthesis. Though We Are One Of The Most Sought After With Regards To Dental Aesthetics, We Always Consider And Focus First On Oral Health, Then Functionality, And Lastly Beauty. In Everything That We Do And Provide, Assessment Is Always The Key And The First Step In Order For Us To Be Able To Provide The Most Suitable Treatment For Our Patients.

So, How Would You Define Apostol Dental Cosmetic Center’s Position In The Current Market?

Through Constant Innovation, Having State Of The Art Dental Machines, Being In A Prime Location, And Having Our Own In-House Dental Laboratory Puts Us As One Of The Trailblazers In The Industry, Dr. Apostol And Team Makes Sure Every Detail, Smile Customization Process Per Patient, And Quality Offered Is Unsurpassed.
