Meet Our Dentists

Both dentists at Douglas Dental Care are highly trained and compassionate.  They strive for clinical excellence for each of their patients.  Continuing education is a cornerstone of their dental practice.  They attend over 40 hours of continuing education each year, learning about the newest technologies and procedures.  Feel free to contact them with any questions you may have.

Dr. Dimitri Arfanakis (affectionately known as Dr. Dimitri) is proud to provide comprehensive oral health care.  He's committed to diagnostic and clinical growth.  As a member of many dental organizations, Dr. Dimitri attends many continuing education courses to remain up-to-date with the latest dental advancements and research.  In June 2018, Dr. Dimitri became a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, a very prestigious accomplishment that less than 6% of all US dentists earn.



Dr. Dimitri is also a supervising dentist and instructor at the West Georgia Technical College Dental Hygiene Department.  He helps train students to become dental hygienists and believes that all dental care must include proper oral hygiene.

Dr. Dimitri is married to his wife, Katie, a Douglasville native. They have two children together.  The family enjoys being active in its church and volunteering at schools and local charitable organizations.
