Meet Dr. Theodosi
Dr. Chris Theodosi
I love being an orthodontist and am proud to be part of our team. Each patient has unique challenges and personal goals, and it is my goal to exceed their expectations. I am passionate about providing the highest standard of orthodontics in a happy, enjoyable environment so each patient has a positive and memorable experience. Nothing gives me more joy than seeing them show off their smile and be proud of the fact that they have beautiful, straight teeth.
Education and Continuing Education
Before becoming an orthodontist, I graduated from the dental school at the University of Melbourne. I was in general practice in Melbourne for 12 years before obtaining my Masters Degree in Orthodontics at the St. Louis University, USA, where I received the J.P. Marshall Award. In addition to seeing patients, I now actively teach at the University of Melbourne, which allows me to pass on and share information and knowledge to future orthodontists.
Education is incredibly important to me, and I know that as an orthodontist, I must always provide the most effective and efficient treatments for my patients. I am always looking for the highest quality services to help me give my patients the smiles of their dreams. As part of my continuing education, I am active in the following professional organizations:
- Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics
- Australian Dental Association
- Australian Society of Orthodontics
- World Federation of Orthodontists
- American Society of Orthodontists
Outside the Office
At home, my wife, Janet, and I have three wonderful children, Andrew, Alexandra, and Sophie. When I am not in the office, I spend time watching my kids play football, soccer and basketball. I also go to the gym and watch the Essendon football team. During the summer my family and I are also active with the Portsea Surf Lifesaving Club.
