Ricardo is a caring dentist, who likes to spend time listening to his patients and get them to feel comfortable and at ease in the dental practice environment.
He has extensive experience with dental implants, from simple cases to complex restorative situations involving bone grafts.
As a general dentist, Ricardo is keen on both the restorative and surgical sides of his profession, enjoying saving teeth through the treatment of gum disease and rebuilding broken-down teeth with modern, high-quality materials and advanced minimum intervention techniques.
Ricardo graduated in 2002 from the Faculty of Dental Medicine, University of Lisbon in Portugal, and soon moved to the UK, taking postgraduate education in many countries (mostly UK, also France, Spain, Cuba, Brazil, Sweden and USA), thus being exposed to different approaches and building up resources that his patients can benefit from.
In 2013 Ricardo embraced a new project, dedicating part of his time to research in Sweden, the pioneering country in Implant Dentistry, where he is contributing to advance the knowledge on how implants integrate with bone, bringing the immune system into a complex equation of cells and molecules and making sense out of it.
Ricardo is now joining our practice in Reigate, where he intends to settle and enjoy his profession, accepting general dental practice patients and referrals for advanced restorative cases.
