Implant Pathway Faculty

Dr. Andrew Farkas graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center School of Dentistry at Houston, Texas in 1996 and completed a residency certificate program of Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) in 1997. In 2019, he completed an accredited 300-hour AAID, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry course at Loma Linda University in California. The program fulfilled the continuing education requirement of the Associate Fellow member process of the highly regarded AAID organization. This implantology specialty program provides a thorough understanding of diagnostic and treatment modalities necessary to properly treat patients with dental implants. His implant dentistry skills include: dental implant placement for a single tooth, multiple teeth, full arch, all-on-four, sinus / gum / bone grafting and sinus augmentation. He is certified in IV and oral sedation administration along with ACLS - Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification. After dedicating twenty-four years to his private practice located in Houston, Texas and completing the sale of ownership to his associate in late 2020, Dr. Andrew Farkas founded Smile Implantology. Implant dentistry consisted of thirty percent of his practice production and collections prior to its sale. His Houston practice was regarded with a ‘Black Belt’ designation; an esteemed honor from The Dental Success Institute, meaning his production, collections and profitability were in the top 5% of practicing dentists in the country. Dr. Farkas offered the highest level of care and advanced technology to multi-generations of patients with an impeccable reputation of excellence. Smile Implantology launches off on his vast experience in private, comprehensive dentistry, with a focus specific to implant dentistry. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants for his patients has been some of the most rewarding work he continues to practice. Completing over six hundred hours of continuing education in the past three years alone, Dr. Farkas continually researches and implements available technologies for optimum procedural success. This tremendous investment in himself as a practitioner is why he is referred to as a ‘Super-Dentist’, with the ability to perform both general and advanced dental procedures. Currently, Dr. Farkas is part of the highly acclaimed clinical team at Implant Pathway in Tempe, Arizona pursuing patient care and mentoring other practitioners seeking similar success in their own practice. Dr. Farkas has been married for twenty-six years to his wife Karen, who is not only his high school sweetheart, but also the architect of Smile Implantology. She brings her skill and experience to support her husband’s implantology practice while working to share her business and design insight with others. When not working, this duo enjoys world-wide travel, great food and wine with a dash of architectural site seeing for good measure. As life-long athletes, they both participate in masters swimming.
