Dr. Prokopets is originally from Poltava Ukraine, but grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona. Being the fourth generation female dentist in her family, from a young age she saw the impact that dentistry had on patients’ overall well-being and decided to dedicate her life to becoming an exceptional dental provider.

During her training at Columbia, she obtained advanced training in General Anesthesia, Emergency Medicine, and Oral Surgery.

Her desire to focus on dental implants continued as she proceeded to complete a three-year residency and Master’s degree in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at Louisiana State University. Dr. Prokopets is trained in all aspects of implants, including esthetic implant surgery, bone grafting, sinus elevation, microsurgery, esthetic gum grafting, and full mouth rehabilitation. Dr. Prokopets further completed LASER training and certification which includes the use of lasers in gum recontouring, treatment of aphthous ulcers, periodontal disease, and peri-implantitis.
