I am a qualified dentist in Brazil and in the UK with a MSc and PhD in Translational & Regenerative Dentistry. I co-created a dentine self-healing technique fully based on genetic modulation and stem cell activation in the dental pulp, that is now in course for clinical trials.
I believe in Dentistry evolving beyond the technical treatments we currently do. Which is why I have been dedicating my life to understand the human body biology, so that new dental treatments are fully based on the natural process of body healing. My ambition is to shape the future of Dentistry via molecular biology, genetics and epigenetics, creating products that are industry viable, and affordable for the general public, helping patients to naturally grow and repair their own oral tissues and organs.
I am incredibly passionate to share my knowledge and inspire dentists around the world to look at dentistry with a biological mindset.
I understand the difficulty of changing the culture of a professional class, shifting from a material/hand-ability (“the craftsman”) mindset, to a cell and molecular biology mindset.
Therefore, I created a series of talks that help Dentists to see the profession from a different perspective and embrace the biological future that dentistry is going towards.
