Dr. Gen received his Bachelor of Science degree from Case Western Reserve University, as well as his Doctor of Dental Surgery.

He was awarded the Pierre Fouchard Award, the Teledyne Waterpik Award in Prosthodontics, the American Academy of Dental Practice Administration Award, and the Academy of General Dentistry Award.

Dr. Konstantinos Apostolopoulos was born in Athens, Greece, and raised in Kalamata, Greece. We affectionately love to call him “Dr. A” so feel free to do the same! While living in Greece, Dr. Apostolopoulos attended dental school at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. After graduating dental school in 2015, he worked as a general dentist in the military during his mandatory service and was able to also work alongside his mom who is a practicing general dentist in Kalamata, Greece.
In 2017, Dr. Apostolopoulos moved to the US to complete a three-year residency in Orthodontics at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU). While there, he received the B. Holly Broadbent Award for outstanding research for his thesis project. Another fun fact about Dr. Apostolopoulos’s time at Case Western Reserve University was that Dr. Gen was his professor! The two have known each other for over five years and both have like-minded treatment philosophies.
