Dr. Gregoriou then attended the University of Manitoba where she graduated with her Degree in Dental Medicine in 1998. To further her studies and begin preparations to pursue a graduate program in oral surgery, Dr. Gregoriou completed a one year General Practice Residency Program at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Here she furthered her knowledge of medicine and dentistry through her rotations in anesthesia, plastic surgery, and emergency medicine. In 1999, she returned to her home province and joined the team at Semiahmoo Dental Centre where she has been a partner since 2001.
Being quite passionate about ongoing learning in life and work, Dr. Gregoriou has attended numerous study clubs and continuing education courses over the years. She taught as a clinical instructor at the UBC School of Dentistry for four years and has lectured to local study clubs. Dr. Gregoriou believes that by participating in active learning environments in dentistry, she can continually provide her patients with the best quality of care. Her friendly, funny and compassionate nature goes a long way to putting her patients at ease.
Dr. Gregoriou’s other passion lies in her family life. She is married to her best friend George and has two wonderful children. Two parrots and a Portuguese Water Dog named Callie are also a part of the family. Spending time outdoors and travelling are among her favourite pastimes.
