Dr. Mandelaris is one of the recipients of the 2017 American Academy of Periodontology’s (AAP) Clinical Research Award, an award given to the most outstanding scientific article with direct clinical relevance in Periodontics. A nationally recognized expert, he was appointed by AAP to co-chair the first ever Best Evidence Consensus Workshop on the use of CBCT Imaging in Periodontics as well as co-author the national guidelines. In 2018, he was recognized with American Academy of Periodontology’s Special Citation Award. Dr. Mandelaris is the 2018 recipient of The Saul Schluger Memorial Award for Clinical Excellence in Diagnosis and Treatment Planning.

Dr. Mandelaris is a Past President of the Illinois Society of Periodontists and has served on several committees for the American Academy of Periodontology and is one of the AAPs recommended speakers on topics related to periodontics-orthodontics and imaging/implant surgery. He is a key-opinion leader for several industry leaders and holds memberships in many professional organizations, including the American Academy of Periodontology, Academy of Osseointegration, American Academy of Restorative Dentistry and the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research.

Dr. Mandelaris is in private practice at Periodontal Medicine & Surgical Specialists, LTD in Chicago, Park Ridge and Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois.
