Biography

I am a specialist in prosthetic dentistry with fourteen years of experience as a clinician. As a researcher I have been working on the improvement of the physical and mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced composite fixed dental prostheses. I am strongly motivated to investigate the clinical implications of new and emerging digital technologies in restorative dentistry.



Research

My research interests include the applicability of new technologies in restorative dentistry, as well as the enhancement and development of dental biomaterials. I have attempted to build upon my training and clinical experience in prosthetic dentistry by focusing on the improvement of fiber-reinforced composite fixed dental prostheses.
