Isabella is a specialist in Periodontology who has a deep passion for providing dentistry in a warm and gentle environment. Her specialist care focuses on treating patients who have gum disease and lost bone requiring surgical reconstruction and placement of dental implants. She uses new technologies to save most of the severely affected teeth.
She is internationally recognised for treating patients who have severe bone defects requiring complex bone grafting procedures. Her strong clinical and research involvement allows her to apply the ultimate techniques and innovative biomaterials to treat the most complex cases in a minimally invasive way.
Isabella has published numerous scientific articles on the reconstruction of bone using biomaterials to allow dental implant placement with the use of sophisticated techniques using 3D models to diagnose and assess each case.
Isabella graduated in dentistry at the University of Milan, Italy. She was then awarded a scholarship from the department of Medicine, University of Milan, to train as a clinical and research fellow at the Department of Periodontology, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Boston, USA, and awarded an MSc with merit in Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry from the University of Manchester.
