I’m from the country of Brazil, and I grew up in a family of 11 Brazilian dentists. I like to say that Dentistry is part of who I am. Because the huge influence from my family I grew up seeing, listening, and talking about how dentistry can improve patients’ self-confidence by giving them a healthy and beautiful smile.
In 2001 I graduated from a prestigious Brazilian Dental School, and I practiced there as a general dentist for five years.
My first dental experience in the USA was in 2008 as a Dental Assistant. In 2010, I became a licensed Dental Hygienist in the State of Florida, where I practiced for nearly six years. My work with patients and passion about Dentistry motivated me to go back to dental school here in US.
In May 2020, I received my degree as a US Licensed Dentist from University of Illinois at Chicago.
I want my patients to feel like a welcomed guest the moment they walk in. You can expect to be treated in a caring atmosphere with respect by a doctor who won’t judge or lecture you. We will cater to you, delivering the best treatment to fit your healthcare needs and your budget. My main goal is that you walk out feeling confident with your healthy and beautiful smile.
My background allows me to connect with a diverse range of patients. I can deliver an amazing patient experience in 3 languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese.
When I am not thinking about dentistry, I enjoy dining out with my husband at great local restaurants. On the weekends I really like walking and biking near the beach.
I love to travel and of course my favorite destination is my country Brazil.
