Dr Christos Damasiotis BDS - Dental Surgeon

I studied at universities in Bucharest and Athens and qualified as a dentist in 2000. I came to the UK in 2006 and worked in Wales for a year before moving to Andover where I worked since 2007. My wife Maria and I took over Shield House Dentistry in 2019. Maria and I have been married since 2001 and we have an 11 year old son, Giannis Andrei

I qualified as a Dental Nurse from Eastleigh College in 1987 and have been at Shield House dentistry since we opened in 2009. I am experienced in all aspects of
dental nursing, from implants to CEREC® and the Enlighten tooth whitening system.

As well as nursing I am also responsible for personally looking after our patients and maintaining the clinical areas of the practice.

I live in West End with Duncan my partner of 29 years. I enjoy tap dancing, recreational running and in 2003 I successfully completed the London marathon.

Mrs Maria Damasiotis - Reception

My role is to help with the care and hospitality of our patients, to take responsibility for the practice administration, to oversee the housekeeping and to ensure the continued smooth running of the practice as Christos, Anita and myself strive for excellence in everything we do.

I’m here for the first hour of the day, helping out Maria while she drops off her son at school on the way here

I’m here in the afternoons helping with the care and hospitality of our patients


We like to look after all our patients on an individual basis therefore we do not have a ‘traditional’ receptionist.

Maria, Sue, Deidre or Anita will meet you personally at our front door and look after you for the duration of your visit.
