Dr. Alex Trigonis has been creating beautiful smiles and healthy bites in Santa Barbara alongside with Dr. Edstrom since 1992. He graduated at the top of his class from the UCLA School of Dentistry in 1989, where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree. He then continued his post-doctoral education at UCLA, obtaining a Masters of Science Degree in Oral Biology, and Certificates in both Orthodontics and Facial Orthopedics and Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Trigonis is one of very few dual-trained orthodontic specialists in the United States and abroad. The additional degree of training in Pediatric Dentistry offers insight into the early treatment needs of young patients. He is the only orthodontist in the Central Coast who has obtained this dual training.
Dr. Trigonis’ dedication to his patients and continued commitment to dental education have earned him recognition as a leader in his field. As a Premier Certified Invisalign® Specialist, he also enjoys educating his colleagues in the dental community. He has been invited to speak to local dentists and hygienists about the latest developments and treatments in orthodontics.
Both doctors were recently ranked by Invisalign as Premier Providers placing them in the top 3% of orthodontists across the United States who provide Invisalign. As a result of their commitment to achieving orthodontic excellence they have been consecutively part of an elite group of Premier Invisalign Providers since 2005. With this experience, they are able to treat some of the most complicated bites, in both Teens and Adults, with Invisalign.
Dr. Trigonis and his wife, Alexandra, enjoy spending their free time swimming, exercising, reading, being active in their church, hiking in the beautiful local mountains, traveling and spending time in the outdoors. It is especially fun for them to bump into patients while doing these activities!
An esteemed member of the orthodontic community, Dr. Trigonis is an active member of many leading dental and orthodontic organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, California State Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, California Dental Association and the Santa Barbara-Ventura County Dental Society. He cares very much about delivering quality care to his patients in a fun and caring atmosphere.
