Work Experience

Master of Advanced Studies in Lingual Orthodontics

University Basel (Switzerland)

Qualified in 2017 this was the first master degree program (MAS) in lingual orthodontics at university level to offer an additional comprehensive qualification in both theoretical and practical lingual orthodontics. This unique training concept gives the opportunity to compare the two most commonly used systems in a clinical setting with regard to ease of handling and patient acceptance. Modern digital and analogue techniques complement each other in a functional and flexible method of application.

Therefore, I can provide my patients with the best most up to date knowledge, techniques and treatment. I was born in August and as a typical Leo I am a very affectionate, warm and cheerful person, who can be counted on to bring sunshine into other people's lives. Dignified, playful, ambitious and loyal, I am known for being exceptionally generous, very passionate, emotional, loving and caring. A person full of ambition and energy! I love working in a team and leading this team to achieve better results. I love good food, sports, exploring different cultures and travelling. I believe that my smile is addictive and is one of my God given gifts!.
