University degree: Dr Guimarães graduated in Dentistry in 1989, and specialized in Orthodontics from UNESP, Araraquara, SP, Brazil.
Since then, she has been dedicated to studying and updating her knowledge in orthodontics, smile aesthetics, aesthetic orthodontics (invisible appliances), dental aesthetics, sleep apnoea, orofacial pain, amongst others.
Between 2006 and 2008, she studied and worked in Texas, USA, with renowned professor Dr Wick Alexander. During this period, she worked in the clinical area, giving lectures, developing research and participating in the activities of Baylor University, improving herself in the Alexander Discipline Technique and in the modern technologies of that time, such as the customized lingual fixed appliance.
She was the first professional duly accredited and certified in the USA to develop the Incognito Technique in São Paulo, and maintains constant communication with Dr Alexander – seeing patients in the American clinic and lecturing every year at the Alexander Symposium for a select group of orthodontists from various countries, allowing her to renew her knowledge, and bring the latest news to her office in São Paulo.
Dr Guimarães gives courses and lectures in orthodontics and translates important courses in this specialty.
She worked, and is still part of the Well Clinic (Coachman Concept) team, for 8 years, where she acquired experience in multidisciplinary treatment and digital smile planning with DSD (Digital Smile Design). This experience allowed her to seek the best facial and smile aesthetics in orthodontic case planning.
She has much experience working on multidisciplinary cases, such as those involving orthognathic surgery, finishing with laminates (contact lenses), patients with breathing problems and sleep apnoea, TMD (temporomandibular disorder), amongst others. She dedicates herself intensively to her private practice in Moema, São Paulo, where she has been established since 1995.
She participates annually in 3 to 5 congresses/update courses in orthodontics, in addition to study groups in interdisciplinary areas.
