Shortly after graduating as a dentist from São Paulo University, I specialized in endodontics. There, I worked as an educator and a practicing dentist, gradually developing a keen interest in cariology and minimally invasive dentistry. Since 2018, I have enhanced my skills at IOOS, Aarhus University, by researching dental biofilm, developing and coordinating teaching programs, and teaching, all within a minimally invasive approach in dentistry. Was named "Teacher of the Year" in 2022 and 2023.
