Carolina always longed to be a dentist and studied hard to pursue her dream career. This dedication to achieving her goal paid off as she was successfully accepted in to one of the most reputable universities in Brazil, going on to graduate in 2002. Carolina then worked for a number of years in a very busy private dental practice in her hometown. She also had the opportunity to work closely with a renowned orthodontist (a specialist in teeth straightening), so gained an extensive background in this field.

After moving to London in 2008 and registering with the UK’s General Dental Council, Carolina acquired more experience working for the NHS and attended the latest dental courses to keep her knowledge and skills up to date. Currently Carolina works as general dental practitioner on a private basis only, with a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry; providing white fillings, veneers, crowns, whitening and teeth straightening treatments.

Carolina believes the welfare and satisfaction of her clients are paramount and that the most rewarding part of being a dentist is helping people smile with renewed confidence.
