An Oakleigh local, married with two sons, Andrew Gikas attended the University of Melbourne, graduating with a Bachelor of Dental Science degree in 1991.
Dr Gikas began practicing dentistry in regional Victoria before returning to Melbourne. He established the original Oakleigh Dentist in 1994 to provide the highest quality service and patient focused care to patients in Oakleigh and surrounding communities – Dr. Bella took ownership of the practice in 2019 and continues to provide the same high-quality and caring service. Andrew continues to work part-time at the clinic and makes a wonderful team with Bella.
Andrews’s passions are all aspects of general dentistry, dental sleep medicine and footy – being a mad Collingwood supporter.
Other than working part-time at Oakleigh Dentist, Andrew is involved in a number of professional activities outside of clinical practice. He is a Clinical Tutor at the University Of Melbourne, was part Board of the Australasian Sleep Association up until recently, is a councillor at the ADA Federal and Victorian branches and is a Past President of the state branch. He has a strong interest in oral health promotion activities including chairing the ADAVB’s Oral Health Committee, being a member of a number of oral health working groups and enjoying some media engagements as a result.
He has been awarded three honorary fellowships and an award for his contributions to the dental profession. Andrew has lectured, been involved in clinical research and enjoys attending to his patients.
