I graduated with a BDS from Tuiuti University (Brazil) in 2004, and have been a specialist in Periodontics (2006 – Faculdade de Odontologia de Piracicaba – Unicamp, Brazil) for 10 years. I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Dentistry (Implant Dentistry) from Universidade Positivo, Brazil and a PhD from the University of Otago, New Zealand. For my PhD I studied the regeneration of bone around implants using stem cells.
I am a fully registered specialist in Periodontics in New Zealand, Australia and Brazil. I have special clinical interests in gum disease treatment, plastic surgery of the gums, bone and gum grafting/regeneration and dental implants.
I consult at Wellington Periodontics & Dental Implants, Level 16, 142 Lambton Quay, Wellington and operate at Bowen Hospital.
