Ana is originally from Brazil where she graduated as a dentist in 1999. After working in Brazil for 4 years she decided to move to New Zealand in pursuit of a lifestyle change.
In 2009, Ana joined North Shore Dental and her special interests are Orthodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry, which includes complex fillings, Veneers, Crowns and Bridges. She is also passionate about Dysport, a muscle relaxant like Botox, used in the treatment of wrinkles as well as for the treatment of patients that grind and clench their teeth.
Ana also believes in continuing education to make sure she continues to provide the best dental practices and technology available for her patients. She is an active member of the NZDA and ADA. Ana is also an executive of the board of the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
In her spare time, she loves running, looking at NZ art and trying to burn something in the kitchen for her husband Nick and their children Jack and Louis.
