The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recognizes Pinellas County as one several Florida counties considered “dental health professional shortage areas.” According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and more than 35 million Americans are missing all their teeth on one or both arches. The St. Petersburg practice aims to increase local patient access to critically-needed tooth replacement services by offering free consultations and x-rays for new patients.
Dr. Vellis obtained his dental degree from Howard University. His passion for surgery led him to apply and gain acceptance to a three-year postgraduate residency program specializing in Periodontics and Dental Implants at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. Dr. Vellis is an extensively-trained dental surgeon who has placed hundreds of dental implants.
His affiliated practice providing Affordable Dentures & Implants® delivers tooth replacement care – including dentures, extractions and dental implants – at affordable fees. The practice features its own on-site dental lab, which adds convenience and value for patients. The practice opens at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.
