BAYSIDE, NY – Dr. Nicholas Rallis, founder of the Center for Smiles, a leading dental practice serving Bayside and its surrounding communities, has been named Associate Faculty Member at the prestigious Dawson Academy. With only 20 faculty members worldwide, this appointment is a recognition of Dr. Rallis’ commitment to delivering the highest possible dental care to patients he serves as well as his unwavering focus to teach dental care excellence to aspiring dentists. This achievement is considered one of the highest honors in dentistry.

Dr. Rallis, a resident of Manhasset, NY, becomes only one of two Dawson Academy Associate Faculty in New York State and among only four Associate Faculty Members in the Northeast. “Throughout my career in service to my patients, I have dedicated myself to higher learning and the highest practice standards, both clinically and ethically. Let’s be honest, going to the dentist is not always pleasant, but I have always stayed at the forefront of technology and clinical techniques to help my patients achieve more lasting, predictable results while helping improve their overall oral health,” said Dr. Rallis.

“Being appointed Associate Faculty at the Dawson Academy is a wonderful honor and it’s a privilege to serve and share my expertise with the next generation of dentists,” he continued.

Dr. Rallis hosts a mini-residency course at his practice at the Center for Smiles where he teaches the Dawson Academy curriculum. The mini-residency consists of six courses; each is a three-day, hands-on course serving dentists from the United States and around the world.

Dr. Rallis has served as Clinical Faculty member at New York University from 2008 to 2018 where he taught Full Mouth Rehabilitation in the Continuing Education program.
