Dr Photini Papacharalambous was born in Nicosia, Cyprus. She qualified as a dentist from the Dental School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2014.
During the first two years of her career, Dr Papacharalambous worked at private clinics and at dental hospitals and was also a clinical assistant at the Dental School of Athens. Her interest in Prosthodontics brought her to Scotland, where she completed a three-year full-time postgraduate course at the University of Edinburgh. In 2019 she was awarded the Doctorate of Clinical Dentistry (DClinDent) in Prosthodontics with distinction. Dr Papacharalambous was also awarded the Nairn Wilson medal for clinical and academic excellence.
During her postgraduate studies at the Edinburgh Dental Institute, she enhanced her academic and clinical skills in all disciplines of restorative dentistry and underwent extensive advanced training in removable and fixed prosthodontics, both conventional and implant borne. Dr Papacharalambous has gained experience in complex full-mouth rehabilitations, which allows her to restore her patients’ smile in terms of both aesthetics and function.
Dr Papacharalambous is based at Vermilion’s main referral clinic in Edinburgh, where her practice is limited to Prosthodontics. She is also a clinical teaching fellow at the Edinburgh Dental Institute in the Department of Restorative dentistry where she is involved in teaching and training of postgraduate students.
