Experience Brazil as part of the Residency 2


Experience Brazil as part of the Residency 2

When it comes to one thing dentists don’t have a lot of - it’s often time! That’s why we understand, when choosing to attend dental education such as a DSD Residency, it makes sense to consider choosing a location that enables you to combine work with pleasure, taking time before or after the Residency to explore the surrounding areas.

The DSD Residency 2 in Brazil offers a wealth of vacation options, whether for a short trip or a longer period. Even if you only have time to attend the dates of the DSD Residency itself, there will still be time to explore the stunning location of São Paulo.

To make things easier, we have created a travel guide of both the immediate area of São Paulo and wider choices in Brazil, to inspire you to start planning your trip!

Exploring Brazil before or after your DSD Course

Brazil is the largest country in South America and Latin America, and the fifth-largest country, in terms of land mass, in the world. With nearly 8000km of coastline, it’s no surprise that Brazil is home to some of the most stunning beaches in the world. It also contains 60% of the Amazon forest. Which makes it the perfect place to relax before or after your dentist education course.
