Dr. Patricia Carvalho

Patricia Carvalho joined our team in August 2013, she is a qualified dentist from Lisbon University, Portugal in 2008.

Her dentistry journey in UK started in Aberdeen 2009 and since then she has been keen to keep learning and developing her skills in the most up to date techniques, pursuing a successful career in general practice. As a person and clinician she has a very honest, transparent and straight forward personality.

Patricia is focused at the moment in Restorative & Aesthetics Dentistry but Implantology is definitely in the horizon, she also likes to keep photographic records of her most challenging clinical cases.

Currently on a MSc programme in Restorative & Aesthetics Dentistry at the University of Manchester, Patricia is being taught by great references as Prof. Nasser Barghi, Stephen Davies and Louis Mackenzie.

Since graduation, between 2009 and 2011, Patricia completed 280 hours of Oral surgery training (mostly impacted third molars) run by Dr. A. Matos da Fonseca (Clinica da Face Director, British Hospital) in Portugal and by Dr. Reynaldo/Dr. Maritza Peres in Sta. Clara University, Cuba.

In 2011, completed one year course in Restorative Dentistry run by the acclaimed Dr. Paul Tipton. and also a Facial Aesthetics course (botulinum toxin and derma fillers) run by Medics Direct in 2012.

Outside of dentistry her greatest passion is Basketball, played between '94/2006 and was part of the Junior & Under-20 Portugal National Teams between '99/2001. She loves travelling, diving, restaurants, concerts and the latest hi-tech gadgets.

I would like to complement The Craiglockhart Dental Practice for their outstanding customer service. From Nadia at reception, always with a confident smile putting me completely at ease and her impressive efficiency to Patricia who is professional and business like ( in a good way, explaining the procedures and what is going on) . As an extremely nervous patient Patricia is able to make me feel at ease and her patience, often stretched by me I am sure, is calming and sympathetic. The dental nurse too is quick to help and shows concern when I show signs of nerves.

Thank you for such a positive experience
S.M.

I had quite a few appointments taking a couple of months and can honestly say that the service was fantastic. The receptionist was efficient and the dental nurse and dentist very kind, gentle and professional at all times. They were really all lovely and I would definitely recommend this practice. I had a very positive experience and am delighted with the end results .
