Clinic of Craniofacial Anomalies
Aims to provide a thorough service to the patients with craniofacial anomalies (cleft lip palate, hemi facial microsomia, syndromes etc.) who are under treatment in the Orthodontic Clinic.
These patients, treated by the postgraduate students, visit the Clinic on Wednesdays, 10:00 - 14:00.
In order to address an overall better patient’s treatment, the Faculty Member of the Department of Orthodontics who is in charge for the treatment, may call colleagues from other disciplines to provide their consultation.

Obstructive-Sleep Apnea Clinic
The clinic aims to contribute to the study and the treatment of Obstructive-Sleep Apnea patients by using intraoral orthodontic appliances.
The process of (a) the diagnosis, (b) the treatment plan selection, (c) the monitoring before, during and after the selected therapy, and (d) the selection of suitable patients for the use of the orthodontic appliance is the responsibility of the Sleep Workshops based in hospitals and other health units.
The patients, selected by the Sleep Workshops, visit the Orthodontic Clinic on Wednesdays 10:00 - 12:00, after they have booked an appointment (Mrs. Despoina Zaproudi, tel. 2310 999557) with Mrs. Effimia Koumpia, Orthodontic Specialist.
The start, the planning, the implementation and the monitoring of the orthodontic treatment of these patients follow the procedures applying for all the patients treated in the Orthodontic Clinic. The cost of the orthodontic appliances used for the Obstructive-Sleep Apnea treatment is 250 Euros and is paid when the patient receives his appliance.
Moschos A. Papadopoulos, Professor and Chairman, is in charge for the Obstructive-Sleep Apnea Clinic.
The main purpose of the examination of the patients who visit the Outpatients Clinic of the Department of Orthodontics is to inform them (and their parents) about their orthodontic problem and provide informative advice. At the same time the doctor takes records of their medical, dental and orthodontic history in case some of them are selected to be treated in our clinic.
Due to the fact that the number of patients visiting the Clinic is much higher than the number of the patients that can be treated, the selection of the patients is based on the following criteria:
1. The educational needs of the undergraduate and postgraduate students
2. The research needs of the Department of Orthodontics and
3. The financial and social situation of the patients' families.
Patients who wish to attend the Outpatients Clinic should book an appointment by contacting the Secretariat of the Department on the tel. number 2310 999557, Monday to Friday, 08.00-10.00. The Clinic usually operates on Wednesdays and the charge is 5 Euros. The patients´ examination in the Outpatients Clinic does not imply any obligation on the Department of Orthodontics for their treatment.
The patients who are selected for treatment are notified within 3 months following their visit in the Clinic. Those who are not selected they are not notified.
