Theo has a special interest in dealing with the prosthodontic care of the most complex and demanding cases, especially those requiring full mouth rehabilitation in conjunction with or independently of implants.

Theo Kapos received his dental degree (DMD) from Harvard School of Dental Medicine (Boston, USA). He then completed a three-year specialty program also at Harvard where he earned a Master of Medical Science (MMSc) degree in Oral Biology and a Speciality Certificate in Prosthodontics.

In order to further his skill and knowledge, Theo joined a two year Advanced Graduate Implantology Program at Harvard from which he received a Speciality Certificate in Implant Dentistry. Following completion of his Advanced Graduate training, he was then appointed to the dental faculty at Harvard as a clinical instructor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences. He is currently an honorary lecturer at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute, where he lectures post-graduates on Implant dentistry and works in private practice in the West End.
