“My aim is to work in the most biological and conservative way after having established the proper diagnosis. Therefore, when I propose a treatment plan, I always follow the family rule: “Would I do this to my children, siblings or parents?” “My ultimate goal is to provide my patients with a healthy oral function while providing a natural, beautiful and facially integrated smile.”
Dr Margarida believes that as dentists they don’t save lives but by giving new smiles, they often transform lives. She has always enjoyed working with her hands and in dentistry, she found a purpose for this passion. She also loves to revisit her patients often.
