Specialty: Full Mouth Restoration

“Every tooth in a man´s head is more valuable than a diamond.” – Miguel de Cervantes.

Restoring people´s smile is my passion.  I was trained in Costa Rica and Brazil and have a solid experience in cosmetic dentistry procedures.  I have a 12 years experience in my own dental center and 5 years in placing dental implants.

I am certified in the placement of dental implants with formal training in the United States at OCO Biomedical Corporate Headquarters, the world´s leader in immediate load implants (popularly known as same-day implants).

I am always looking for improving my knowledge by attending throughout the year several courses and seminars all around the world, mainly on implantology and cosmetics.  This with the only goal in mind of keeping my knowledge updated, by learning the newest technologies and advances in this field.
