"When I first saw my first rhinoplasty procedure, I was so intrigued by the complexity… all of the emotional and psychological things that went along with it. And I, at that point, realized that facial plastic surgery is the perfect harmony of science and art, and I...
Dr. Carlos Fernando Mourão
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Dr. Mourão lived in the Recreio dos Bandeirantes neighborhood most of his life only recently moving to California. He received his degree in Dentistry from Universidade Estácio de Sá in Rio de Janeiro. In 2012, he finished his Master’s Degree in Surgical Sciences at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and then his Doctorate in Dentistry at the Federal Fluminense University (UFF) in 2017. Soon after, in 2018 and 2019 respectively, Dr. Mourão went on to achieve a post-doctorate in Biotechnology and a post-doctorate in Dentistry from UFF.
Specializing first in Oral Medicine, Dr. Mourão went on to complete a specialization in Implantology and another one in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
When asked where he sees the dental industry going in the next 5 years, Dr. Mourão said; “I see that the possibilities are increasing every day. With the development of new technologies that can be included in Dentistry, I can imagine simple ideas, which were not taken forward, or often fell into disuse, as they were ahead of their time. With that, the development of the industry, aided by investment in new research, will be significant for our area.”
He hopes that this will inspire dentists to continue to improve and never stop studying because we are in a vital area of health that involves oral, body, social, and psychological areas of the patients who come to doctors now. With this in mind, Dr. Mourão is currently dedicating himself to teaching and researching. He intends to stay in these areas, bringing knowledge to the largest number of dentists possible.
This personal goal seems to be a driving force in Dr. Mourão’s work as a Regent for the Global Summits Institute. The Doctor-To-Doctor platform, started by Dr. Kianor Shah in 2018, has been an excellent open-sourced way for the greatest in the profession to share their knowledge. In the first few months of 2020, the Global Summits Institute reached more than 2 million viewers on Facebook. A moment that Dr. Mourão recalls as making him the happiest.
“[The Doctor-To-Doctor movement] is a great move. In addition to the visibility of the group, I believe that the most important thing was to create a friendship with different people in my area and around the world.”
When he is not practicing Dentistry, Dr. Mourão loves spending time with his wife and children. His vision for the future is to get to a place where he can have a laboratory and trained team to be able to carry out more research and develop techniques and products to continue improving the dental industry.
