George Deme DMD, MDSGeorge Deme DMD, MDS

Dr. George Deme shared his adolescent years between the United States and Greece. His father, Mike Deme MD, DMD, MDS, PhD and former professor and graduate from the University of Pittsburgh Department of Orthodontics, sparked his interest in the field.

Hence, in 1986, Dr. George Deme received his B.S in Neurobiology from the University of Pittsburgh and was awarded early admittance to the School of Dental Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Upon receiving his DMD in 1990, he went into private practice in Pittsburgh and Boston and in 1995 completed his orthodontic training and Masters of Dental Science in Oral Biology at Boston University.

Between 1995 and 2013 Dr. Deme owned and operated his own private orthodontic practice in Athens, Greece.

Dr. Deme has always approached orthodontics one case at a time. With his experience and the feedback of his team of dental specialists when he deems necessary, he consistently delivers smiles that change lives.

Being an avid cinephile, in his free time, Dr. Deme enjoys watching films with his wife Patty and son Stevie, or catching a quick workout at the gym.
