In 1991, I finished my Degree in Medicine at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I went on to work in the field of healthcare at the ICS as a GP and A+E doctor. In 1994, after finishing my Degree in Dentistry at the Universitat de Barcelona, I did a postgraduate course in Pediatric Dentistry and took a Master’s degree in Orthodontics at the SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital. In 1998, I obtained my PhD in Medicine and Surgery summa cum laude from the Universitat de Barcelona. I have been a specialist physician in the Dentistry Department since 1999.

I am currently engaged at the SJD Research Institute. I am a member of the research group on  Hospital Dentistry, Clinical Orthodontics and Periodontal Medicine.

I believe that team work calls for a wide range of skills and acts as an important source of motivation and allows for a broader and more heterogeneous perspective of the discipline.
