My mentor, Dr. Samuele Valerio, taught me once that dentistry is all about fascinating aspects of nature, aesthetics, cosmetics and conservation. In my private practice in Sestri Levante near the Ligurian Sea, I have learned how to create beautiful restorations in wonderful patients, with my passion leading the way. After my dental training in Genova, I have had the opportunity to travel around Italy and the world lecturing and training dentists in Aesthetic and Conservative Dentistry. It was my enthusiasm for working with composite materials that made me become a teacher in Conservative Dentistry in Genova and Madrid. Currently, I am also a visiting professor at the University of Siena and the Universitè de la Mediterranee in Marseille, as well as a lecturer at the International University of Catalona in Barcelona. In addition, I am the author and co-author of several publications in scientific international journals and a national and international lecturer and trainer at many European Universities (e.g. in Paris, Nice, Geneva, Warsaw, St. Petersburg, Prague and Thessaloniki).
I obtained my M.D. degree and a D.D.S post-graduate certificate from the University of Ancona. At the moment, I am a full professor in Restorative Dentistry at the School of Dentistry of the Marche Polytechnic University in Ancona, the Head of the Operative Dentistry and Endodontics Department at the same school and the Dean of the School of Dental Hygienists at Marche Polytechnic University. My private practice in Ancona is limited to restorative dentistry. I am an active member of the Italian Society of Operative Dentistry (SIDOC) and the European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (EAED), and a founding member of the Italian Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (IAED). In addition, I am the author and co-author of diverse publications, including the books “Adhesive Dentistry: the Key to success” edited by Quintessence International and “Indirect Conservative Restoration of Posterior teeth” (UTET 2008) and an international lecturer in the field of adhesive and aesthetic restorations.
