Dr Pazios is a strong advocate of continuing professional development. As a result he has received many certificates for attending courses covering all aspects of dentistry. This has allowed Dr Pazios to integrate his vast professional experience with contemporary techniques and technologies, ensuring his patients receive the best treatment possible.
Apart from general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr Pazios also has a keen interest in the emerging field of dental sleep medicine. He is trained and qualified to treat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea using dental appliances. He is a member of the Australasian Sleep Association.
Dr Pazios believes in giving back to the community and is involved with non-for-profit work in developing women’s soccer in South Australia and remains a keen supporter and member of the Adelaide University Soccer Club and the Central Districts Football Club.

Do you want whiter, brighter, healthier teeth?
Do you want to avoid bad breath?
Do you want your teeth to look and feel their best?
At Dental On Fullarton we have a team of highly trained hygeniests who work together with the dentists to provide our patients world class treatment.
Why see a DENTAL HYGIENIST instead of a dentist for your regular scale and clean?
Our hygienists, Nicole and Alana, have a wealth of experience allowing them to carefully and gently eland and polish your teeth. They will also advise you on what dental products best suit you so you can maintain a healthy mouth.
In the long term this saves you money as you do not need to spend it on expensive dental treatment which could have been prevented.
Did you know that gum disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even low birth weight in babies?
The bacteria that cause gum disease live in the plaque and calculus which coats your teeth. For healthy oral hygiene the plaque and calculus should typically be removed every six months. If it continues to build up around your teeth it will cause gingivities which may then progress to become periodontal disease.
Having regular cleans with our hygienists helps keep your teeth, gums and jaw bones healthy. The teeth also appear whiter and brighter by having the stains and calculus removed.
Our hygienist Nicole also enjoys whitening patient’s teeth using the latest whitening procedures. You can discuss with her the best options to achieve a whiter and brighter smile.
At Dental On Fullarton we are serious about our hygienists helping you be a healthier person with a beautiful smile.
So please make an appointment to see either Dr Ashley Parvar or Dr Chris Pazios who will introduce you to our wonderful hygienists at Dental On Fullarton.
