Get to Know Dr. Laura Carvalho

From her roots in Rio de Janeiro to her current role in shaping oral health, Dr. Laura Carvalho's journey is one of determination and passion. Her desire to aid others, deeply ingrained by her family's medical background, led her to a path of dentistry where she could fuse her fascination with human intricacies and dedication to enhancing lives.

A defining moment occurred during a visit to Brazil at 19 when a wisdom tooth extraction took an unexpected turn. The subsequent complications ignited her drive to become a dentist, an advocate for compassionate and effective dental care.

Why Biomimetic?

Minimally Invasive, Non-Toxic Materials

Choosing biomimetic dentistry offers the benefits of preserving your natural tooth structure, reducing the need for aggressive procedures, and promoting long-term oral health. This approach focuses on mimicking natural teeth in terms of function, aesthetics, and durability. By utilizing modern bonding techniques and materials, biomimetic dentistry aims to create strong, stress-resistant restorations that minimize the risk of complications and provide a more conservative and effective solution for your dental needs.
