My biggest area of interest in Prosthodontics and Implantology is prosthetic rehabilitation which maintains esthetics, functional support, and masticatory function of the patients. I graduated from Government Dental College and Hospital, Goa as a Best All Rounder Graduate in the year 2002. I also received Colgate gold medal from the university for the highest marks in periodontics. In 2022 I received the Best Researcher Award from the MNR Educational Trust. To improve the human condition, I believe we must integrate techniques from multiple disciplines to develop advanced knowledge via research and educate our students accordingly. I also have deep interest in forensic odontology. I have published various research articles related to forensic odontology. Presently I am working as a professor and am a guide to post graduate students in the department of prosthodontics.
