I graduated from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1986. Together with my wife Dr. Kathy Karalekas, we are the proud owners of the North Shore Center of Dental Health. We have an Orthodontist, Dr. Ronald Metelka and a Periodontist, Dr. Bruce Abdullah on staff, so virtually all of our patients needs can be met in our familiar comfortable surroundings. I practice General Dentistry but have been further trained in Endodontics and have been performing Root Canal Therapy for 25 years with a fail rate of less than 1%. I also have many years of experience with removable prosthetics; dentures and partials and have recently begun perfoming Mini-Implants for denture stabilization. This is a new and exciting procedure that can stablize dentures for those patients whose dentures have become very loose due to the bone ridge deteriorating over years.
