"I am convinced that high quality dentistry and successful management of patients’ demands are only possible with a dedicated attention to detail, personalised treatment planning and teamwork. After years working in different countries dealing with the complexity of periodontal problems, implant treatment in challenging situations and diverse perceptions of treatment needs and prognosis, I feel passionate about providing tailored treatment preserving or replacing teeth on a case-by-case basis​"
