Dr. Mauricio earned his DDS from University of Brasilia, Brazil in 2004. With excellence in surgical field, he was invited to be an assistant monitor in the periodontal department in his university.
Pursuing further education, he completed his first specialization in Periodontics in the same institution, a 2-year program. Passionate on the surgical field, he pursued conferences and courses in Implantology area until he completed his second specialization in Implantology in the Brazilian Dental Association (ABO – Brasilia), also a 2-year program.
Dr. Mauricio worked in his private practice mainly as a specialist dentist performing implants, periodontics and minor surgery, supported by his staff in all areas in dentistry.
He believes that a healthy smile always starts on prevention and that is why periodontics is so important. Ideally, periodontal treatment is the way to keep your teeth healthy and, whenever it is not possible anymore, the implants would be, by far, the best replacement treatment.
All his courses helped him not only achieve the knowledge to make healthier smiles but also prettier. As a periodontist specialist and top of the art equipment available in the clinic, he is able to perform plastic gingival surgery in order to correct defections in the gums, like recessions and gummy smile.
“A beautiful smile doesn’t come only from nice and white teeth. It needs harmony and healthy and well-designed gums are mandatory for a perfect smile”.
