I studied Dentistry at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. I completed a postgraduate diploma in Orthodontics and a MSc in Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the same institution.
In 2007 I started my PhD at King’s College London, sponsored by two prestigious awards (ALBAN and ORSAS).
In 2013, following one year of dental foundation training in the UK, I was appointed as an Academic Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Specialist Registrar in Orthodontics at King’s College London. I spent my time between research and further clinical training in orthodontics.
My research led to several scientific publications in peer reviewed journals and my findings have been presented both abroad and throughout the UK.
I later qualified with a distinction in Master of Science in Orthodontics from King’s College London and was awarded the Professor Philip Walther Prize for the most outstanding performance.
I attained the Membership in Orthodontics (MOrth) with The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
Following completion of specialist training, I pursued further training at consultant level for three years, before focusing solely on private orthodontic practice.
I am proud of the quality clinical care that I provide and my continued pursuit of further education in this field.
