“Losing your smile is like losing a hand”
I graduated in my field of specialisation 15 years ago at NYU (the University of New York). At the time, some of my lecturers were already working on providing treatments to enhance facial features through dental procedures. This made me decide to take a step back and study the aesthetics of the nose, the lips and the chin, and how they affect our smile.
Five years ago I completed my doctorate in facial aesthetics, and my research is now published in international medical journals and magazines. While I was undertaking this research people often asked me why I as a dentist was dedicating so much time to the study of the nose and lips. I always remind them that the lips and nose, as well as the mouth, determine one’s smile and affect one’s face.
I believe that you cannot treat them as separate elements if you want to achieve a successful, natural result.
