Pennsylvania Dental Association Installs Dr. Cary J. Limberakis as President

Dear Brother Archons and Friends,

I am pleased and proud to share the news that my brother was recently elected president of the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA). Not only is he a dentist of immense accomplishment; he is also an active Archon who has devoted a great deal of his time, talent and treasure to the support and defense of our Holy Mother Church of Constantinople.

Archon Dr. Cary is Regional Commander of the Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, Greater Philadelphia Region, and Chair of the Archon Engagement Committee: Women In Orthodoxy. Archon Cary also serves on the Advisory Board to the Saint Phoebe Center for the Deaconess. Archon Dr. Cary is a steward of the St. Sophia, Saints Faith, Hope and Agape Greek Orthodox Church in Jeffersonville, Pennsylvania, as well as St. Luke Greek Orthodox Church in Broomall, Pennsylvania. He and his beloved wife Alexis (Demetris), who serves on the Philoptochos National Board and as Vice President of the New Jersey Metropolis Philoptochos Board, were married in 1977 and have four children and three grandchildren. He was invested as an Archon on October 10, 2004 and conferred with the offikion Aktouarios.

Please join me in wishing my brother, Archon Dr. Cary Limberakis, the heartiest congratulations. Αξιος!

In the Service of the Ecumenical Patriarchate,

Anthony J. Limberakis, MD
Archon Megas Aktouarios
National Commander

The Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) recently installed Dr. Cary J. Limberakis of Ambler, Montgomery County, as its 2024-2025 president, during its annual business meeting on April 20 at Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mount Pocono, PA.

Dr. Limberakis has maintained a private general practice in the Abington/Jenkintown area for the last 41 years and is a dedicated and respected leader for both his profession and community. Prior to his becoming PDA president, Dr. Limberakis has served in key leadership roles that included terms as the president of PDA’s Second District (encompassing Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Montgomery and Northampton counties), and prior to that as president of Montgomery Bucks Dental Society. At the national level, he served on the American Dental Association’s Council on Dental Practice where his work included valuable contributions as a member of the National Elder Care Advisory Committee and the Dental Quality Alliance. He is a Senior Associate Surgeon/Clinical Instructor in the Dental Division at the Abington-Jefferson Hospital General Practice Residency .

“As the servant-leader of the PDA, my mission is to help every dentist in the Commonwealth succeed, in whatever way that is measured, and to advocate for, and improve, the oral health of the public to the best of my ability.” Dr. Limberakis said.

After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master’s from Villanova University, Dr. Limberakis earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Penn’s School of Dental Medicine in 1978.

In addition to his passion for serving and leading various dental organizations, he has devoted much of his time to improving the lives of others through volunteer efforts such as Give Kids-A-Smile, Give Vets-A-Smile, and for the last 12 years has been the Restorative Lead for Mission of Mercy in Pennsylvania Dental Missions (a free dental care mission that offers dental treatment to those in need), which is holding its next annual mission June 21-22 in Reading.

Dr. Limberakis is a devout Orthodox Christian and has been conferred the title of Archon Aktouarios by His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarchate Bartholomew. He serves as the Regional Commander of the Philadelphia region and has organized multiple symposia on issues relevant to the Church and, more recently, was named Chair of the Women in Orthodoxy Archon Engagement Committee.

Dr. Cary Limberakis is married to Alexis (Demetris) who serves on both the Philoptochos National Board and Metropolis of New Jersey Philoptochos Executive Board.
