Prof. Andre F. Reis – DDS, MSc, PhD

Education and Professional Activities
Dr Reis received his DDS degree in 1999 from the Campinas State University in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He concluded his Masters in Restorative Dentistry in 2003 and PhD in 2005. Recently, he joined in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Florida as a clinical associate professor in the Department of Dental Restoration Division of Dental Dentistry. He is  involved in researchs as a colaboratting professor at the Guarulhos University, in Sao Paulo.

Research Interests
Resin-tooth adhesion, resin-based composites, resin cements, clinical trials, bleaching, dental biomaterials, electron microscopy.

Other highlights
He is the 2005 recipient of the Paffenbarger Award from the Academy of Dental Materials, and in 2006, he received the Hatton Award, from the International Association for Dental Research. He has presented numerous lectures and hands-on seminars nationally and internationally for dental organizations, universities, and study clubs. He has published over 70 articles and book chapters on the study of Adhesive and Esthetic Dentistry materials and techniques. He maintains a private practice dedicated to Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry located in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
