General Info

About me

I decided to study medicine because, from an early age, I discovered I had good manual skills and a penchant for the sciences. In Dentistry, and more specifically in Prosthodontics, I found a way how to combine art and science. What I enjoy most about my job is being able to return to my patients the confidence to smile and enjoy life without complexes or limitations on what they can eat
