Dr. Mandelaris attended the University of Michigan from undergraduate through dental school. In 1999, he completed a three-year post-graduate residency program in Periodontology at the University of Louisville, School of Dentistry, where he also obtained a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Oral Biology.  Dr. Mandelaris is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and has served as an examiner for Part II (oral examination) of the American Board of Periodontology certification process. He has served as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Louisiana State University, School of Dentistry (New Orleans, LA) and, currently, is an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Graduate Periodontics at the University of Illinois, College of Dentistry (Chicago, IL) as well as the University of Michigan, School of Dentistry, Department of Graduate Periodontics (Ann Arbor, MI). Dr. Mandelaris is a Fellow in both the American and International College of Dentists.

Dr. Mandelaris serves as an ad-hoc reviewer for the Journal of Periodontology, the International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, and the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants. He has published in several peer-reviewed journals and has contributed several chapters in six different textbooks used worldwide on subjects related to computer guided implantology, CT diagnostics and, most recently, Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (a forthcoming book to be published by Quintessence which he co-edited and authored the chapter on surgical therapy). In 2014, he was one of 52 periodontists worldwide selected to participate in the American Academy of Periodontology’s commissioned Periodontal Regenerative Medicine World Workshop on Emerging Regenerative Approaches for Periodontal Reconstruction.

A nationally recognized expert, he was appointed by the American Academy of Periodontology to co-chair the 2016 Best Evidence Consensus Workshop on the use of CBCT Imaging in Periodontics as well as co-author the academy guidelines. In 2017, he was one of the recipients of the American Academy of Periodontology’s Clinical Research Award (an award given to the most outstanding scientific published article with direct clinical relevance in periodontics). Dr. Mandelaris is a Past President of the Illinois Society of Periodontists and has served on several committees for the American Academy of Periodontology. He holds memberships in many professional organizations, most recently including the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry and American Society of Bone and Mineral Research.

Dr. Mandelaris is in private practice at Periodontal Medicine Surgical Specialists in Chicago, Park Ridge and Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois. He limits his practice to Periodontology, Dental Implant Surgery, Bone Reconstruction and Tissue Engineering Surgery. He can be reached at 630-627-3930 or gmandelaris@periodontalmedicine.org.
