Dr. Papadopoulos was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, raised in the Kennebecasis Valley (a graduate of KVHS) and completed his undergraduate degree (BSc Honours) at the University of New Brunswick Saint John campus. Following his time at UNB, Dr. Papadopoulos earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Dalhousie University in 2013 and received the Canadian Dental Association’s Student Leader Award.
He was then accepted into a general practice residency, with an emphasis in pediatric dentistry, at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC. In Vancouver, he worked as a dentist at BC Children’s Hospital and throughout the province delivering regular and emergency dental care to patients of all ages, but mostly served children with special needs and inpatient children in the hospital.
Subsequently, Dr. Papadopoulos was accepted into Western University's Graduate Orthodontic program where he earned his Master’s Degree in Orthodontics. Throughout the 3-year specialization residency he earned multiple awards and was also presented with the Lindsey O. Kesling Orthodontic Resident Scholarship award in San Diego, California at the American Association of Orthodontists Annual Scientific Session.
Following graduation, he wrote examinations to earn his specialist designation to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, the American Association of Orthodontists, and the Canadian Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Papadopoulos is actively involved with continuing education, is the Vice President of the Atlantic Orthodontists Association (AOA), is on various committees for the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, and voluntarily serves as the Atlantic Regional Chair for "Smiles4Canada" -- a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to provide complimentary orthodontic treatment to children in need. The program has successfully provided free orthodontic treatment to almost 100 Atlantic Canadian children.
Internationally he has been selected and attended leadership conferences via the American Association of Orthodontists, including a Leadership Summit taught at the Disney Institute in Orlando, Florida. Through his experience and leadership in the orthodontic profession, Dr. Papadopoulos was selected by the Northeastern Society of Orthodontists (NESO) to serve on the NESO Board of Directors and also serve as the NESO representative on the Council of New and Younger Members for the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). In 2021, he was also selected to serve on the American Association of Orthodontists' Council on Orthodontic Health Care. In 2023, he was selected to serve on the AAO's Council on Education. Dr. Papadopoulos has also lectured to orthodontic residents and orthodontists in both Canada and the United States, including at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, California. He will also be presenting at the American Association of Orthodontist's Annual Scientific Session in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2024.
Outside of the clinic Dr. Papadopoulos can be found spending time with family and is an avid fan of the Toronto Raptors and Montreal Canadiens. He enjoys traveling, watching and performing stand-up comedy, playing various instruments (drums, guitar, piano) and playing basketball and soccer.
Since returning to New Brunswick, Dr. Papadopoulos received the 'Top Orthodontist' award by ThreeBestRated in 2019, was voted as 'Best Dentist' by the Moncton community in 2020, and was selected in 2020 as a 'Top 20 Under 40' by the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton. In 2022 and 2023, PapadopSmiles Orthodontics was voted "Best Dental Clinic" in "Saint John CommunityVotes" as well as "Best in Orthodontics". Dr. Papadopoulos is also committed to staying current to the most recent advances in orthodontic modalities and technologies. Whether it be metal braces, ceramic (clear) braces, clear removable aligners (such as Invisalign), or 3D printing custom appliances and aligners, the orthodontic field is always advancing. He is the only Canadian orthodontist on the advisory board of Align Technology ("University and Early Career Advisory Board"), the parent company of "Invisalign".
Dr. Papadopoulos is proud to be back in his hometown to provide specialist orthodontic care to the families of Quispamsis and throughout New Brunswick.
