Meet Dr. Deniakos

Dr. Deniakos is thrilled to bring his robust professional and personal experiences to SOLA Dental. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University School of Dentistry and is a military veteran. As an Air Force officer, Dr. Deniakos completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency in California. He was then stationed in Alabama, where he went on to pursue his Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Today, Dr. Deniakos continues to stay up to date with the latest in techniques and research through hundreds of continuing education hours each year. He is Sedation Certified and is a member of the American Dental Association, the Louisiana Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.

In his practice, Dr. Deniakos often thinks back to his experiences as a young patient in the dental chair. Following a traumatic injury on the playground, he underwent many of the same procedures that he now performs for his patients. These experiences laid the framework for Dr. Deniakos’ calling in life and passion for dentistry. As a veteran, leader and clinician, Dr. Deniakos is excited to share his love for oral health with each person who walks through SOLA’s doors.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Deniakos enjoys playing golf, hiking, studying new languages and traveling. He loves spending time with his wife, Diana, and their young son, Matthew. Dr. Deniakos is also an avid lover of music – he plays both the piano and guitar and sings.

I highly recommend seeing Dr. Deniakos for any and all of your dental needs. He provided amazing care and took his time in delivering quality attention to my entire dental plan. He is great at explaining every little step that he's performing to you while also making sure you are as comfortable as can be. I'm very satisfied with his work and the work of his entire staff. Everyone is super friendly and exceptionally sweet to be around.


5-star, awesome staff, very thorough and knowledgeable dentist and staff, highly recommended!


The best dental experience I’ve ever had. The staff is phenomenal.


I was a little apprehensive about the practice being passed to a new dentist, but decided to trust Dr. Laville's judgment and see how the new management was. I was blown away by my experience there. The attention to detail that Dr. Deniakos showed was very impressive.
