Sonia Varlamos knew she wanted to be a dentist even as a child growing up in New Rochelle.
“I wanted a challenging specialty. I was drawn to the specialty of Periodontics because it is a complex disease, serious infection of the gums, and no two cases are the same.”
Dr. Varlamos opened her practice in 2003 and moved it to Larchmont 11 years ago. Now, Elite Periodontal is considered one of the best practices in the County, and given five star ratings by patients on Zocdoc.
“I enjoy really developing relationships with my patients. Some have been with me for many years and come regularly. They’re an extension of my family.”
And while gum disease and dental implants take up most of her practice, along with oral cancer screenings, Dr. Varlamos began offering cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, under the name Larchmont Aesthetics.
“Many patients were coming in suffering from headaches caused by TMD, and one of the treatment options I use is to inject Botox into the muscle to ease grinding. I work with Botox regularly, and as a dentist, we know the muscles of the face very well. It was a logical extension of my practice.”
She now offers Botox and Restalyne treatments to treat wrinkles and furrows in the brow and around the eyes for patients that want to brighten their face and look younger.
“They’re already here and in the chair,” Varlamos says, “It’s very convenient and my patients love the results.”
