Upon completion of my degree in Dentistry, I started working with prosthodontics at a private clinic and began specialization training. After my Specialization in Prosthodontics I began my career in Implantology. I had the privilege of studying for my PhD at the Medical School in the Federal University of São Paulo. This academic experience gave me a broad view of patients and allowed me to perform related research in both medical and dental. Always, I dedicated myself to Prosthodontics and Implantology, both in clinical practice and as an academic instructor. I think my professional background of working simultaneously in academics and clinical practice strengthens my ability to teach. My teaching strategy in dentistry has always been based on lectures, laboratory and technical training and clinical applicability. The lectures are conducted using Apple Keynote program and I always try to present technical information along with illustrations, and many photographs and videos of clinical cases on the subject. The technical information for the lectures is based on text books, but mostly recent findings from scientific articles. The laboratory activities have students reinforcing information taught in the lectures. I value the importance of being present directly to support students at all times with clinical patients; always guiding with patience and focus. In the classroom, I enjoy interacting with the students, encouraging them to participate in the topic of discussion. I have been heavily involved in Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry research as part of my career. My areas of focus are: bone reconstruction, biomaterials, guided bone regeneration, ceramics and customization of ceramic components. I have supervised several students in research related to these subjects and participated in many evaluation stalls. I would greatly enjoy instructing students who are interested in becoming involved with research. I am currently writing a second book related to guided bone regeneration, tissue engineering, provisionalization and customization of ceramics in anterior regions.
