Dr. Vlachakis has been in Houston for the majority of her life. She graduated from Taylor High School in Katy and continued her education at Texas A&M – Corpus Christi where she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Cum Laude honors in both. Dr. Vlachakis also devoted herself to working part time and volunteering at a local hospital as she found her calling for dentistry in those formative years. She then attended and graduated from UTHSC – Houston, Dental Branch, receiving her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
Since graduating, Dr. Vlachakis has worked in general and pediatric practices where she was able to enhance her abilities to work on both adults and children.

Her philosophy is to learn and utilize the latest technologies that will benefit her patients the most.
Dr. Vlachakis met her husband, Michael, while she was in Corpus Christi studying and he was stationed there for the Navy. They have a home near the Heights where they enjoy taking their dog, Mia, to the park or on walks around the neighborhood and then they all lounge at home with Tansy, their cat. Dr. V enjoys traveling, reading, movies and being surrounded by her close friends and family. She hopes to get the privilege to work on your whole family.
