Born in Rochester, New York, Dr. Kris Togias completed his early education in Greece. Upon returning to the United States, Dr. Togias completed his undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry from the University of Rochester, after which he moved to Boston. He earned his dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and went on to complete a postgraduate specialty residency in orthodontics and maxillofacial orthopedics.
As a dentist with additional and specialized treatment in orthodontics, Dr. Togias recognizes various characteristics of a malocclusion or dentofacial deformity, defines the nature of the problem, including the etiology if possible; and designs a treatment strategy based on the specific needs and desires of the patient. He is committed to comprehensive, high-quality orthodontic care with a focus on individualized treatment based on the unique needs of patients of all ages. While treating early orthodontic and adolescent cases, Dr. Togias also specializes in managing cases in children with growth and development concerns and syndromes such as cleft lip and palate, congenitally missing teeth, impacted and supernumerary teeth, and combination orthodontic/orthognathic surgery adult treatments.
Dr. Togias offers multiple corrective appliances from clear aligner therapies such as Invisalign® treatment and clear and metal braces, as well as Incognito™ lingual braces.
He is an active member of several professional dental organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists® (AAO) and the American Dental Association® (ADA). As a member of the New York County Dental Society, Dr. Togias volunteers annually with free oral health services for the Give Kids a Smile event for underserved children, along with other local charity events. He is proud and fortunate to be able to offer the most current and effective orthodontic treatments to the children and adults through his ongoing continued education of new treatment methods and technology orthodontic treatments.
