Dr. Sam Papandreas - Brunswick Orthodontics

A specialty degree in orthodontics at Baylor University in Dallas became the obvious union of engineering and dental backgrounds. Specialty Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics requires the pursuit of excellence not only in the human sciences, but in the mechanical sciences as well.

Engineering at Illinois brought the necessary background in material sciences, force systems, and dynamics to create new and exciting approaches within orthodontics. Dr. Papandreas chose to pursue his Specialty Degree in Orthodontics and Masters of Science at Baylor due to its reputation as one of the top orthodontic programs not only nationally but internationally.

Dr. Papandreas is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Cleveland Dental Society, Ohio Dental Association and the Schulman Study Group of top orthodontic practices nationally. He is the Founder of the Ohio Academy of Interdisciplinary Dentofacial Therapy formed with a mission to constantly improve the level of complete patient care throughout the professional community with advanced learning, shared knowledge, and interdisciplinary therapy.

North Royalton and the surrounding southwest suburbs was the first and only choice for raising a family and locating Papandreas Orthodontics. Dr. Papandreas resides in Strongsville with his wife, two daughters and a son, and enjoys both participating in and giving back to his community.

He is the founder of north east Ohio’s Smile for a Lifetime Foundation which gives disadvantaged children an opportunity for free orthodontic care. Dr. Papandreas most enjoys spending time with his kids, which gives him a great perspective with yours… he is often heard proclaiming his kids are perfect too (with a wink of an eye)!

Did you know, Dr. Papandreas isn’t the only doctor in the family, his brother Steven is a chiropractor in North Olmsted, OH.

Dr. Papandreas looks forward to welcoming you into his family of patients.
