Inês Miguel


Esthetic Dentistry Department

My name is Inês Costa Miguel and I have been a dentist since 2007. I graduated in dentistry from Instituto Superior de Ciências da Saúde Egas Moniz (ISCSEM) and realized early on that my area of interest was Esthetic Dentistry. In 2007, I joined White Clinic and dedicated my clinical practice exclusively to Esthetic Dentistry and Fixed Prosthodontics. Following graduation in 2008, in order to improve my knowledge of the area of expertise, I attended a postgraduate course in Esthetic Dentistry at ISCSEM. Between 2009 and 2011, I studied for my Masters in Dental Aesthetics at the International University of Cataluña, in Barcelona. In 2019, I did a postgraduate course in Periodontology at Instituto Universitário Egas Moniz. I attended some scientific conferences and participated as co -author in some clinical posters. Since 2009 I have been responsible for the Esthetic Dentistry Department at White Clinic and, for me, nothing is more rewarding than seeing a big beaming smile at the end of each treatment!

Carlos Morais


Endodontics Department

My name is Carlos Morais. I have been a dentist since 2006 when I graduated from Faculdade de Ciências da Saúde from University Pessoa in Porto. I have been part of White Clinic’s team since 2007, the same year that I did a post-graduate course in prosthetics at the Amial (Porto) course center. Even though my specialty is Endodontics, as White Clinic’s focus is oral rehabilitation, I felt the need to improve my knowledge in implantology and therefore in 2008 I attended a postgraduate course at Same Day Solutions. The same year at the International University of Cataluña, I began my Endodontics Masters and completed it in 2010. Since then I have dedicated my practice to Endodontics, not only at the clinic but also as a teacher for courses at EndoAcademy.

I have had the opportunity to hold presentations at several national and international congresses, as well as being the author of posters and scientific articles in the field of Endodontics. In 2014, I completed the Maillefer Teachers Training Course. I am currently a member of the European Society of Dental Microscopy and also of Dental XP.

Susana Gomes


Oral Surgery and Rehabilitation Department

My name is Susana Leite Gomes. I graduated in dentistry from the Instituto Ciências da Saúde Egas Moniz-Sul, in 2008. The same year I joined the White Clinic team, where I started my professional training as a dentist in the Surgery and Oral Rehabilitation department. During my training, I learnt the importance of being part of a multidisciplinary team and consequently in 2010 I did a postgraduate course in ‘Implantology and Prosthesis over Implants’ at the Velasco Institute in São Paulo, Brazil. Due to my passion and interest in this subject, in 2012 I did another postgraduate degree also in São Paulo in ‘Implantology and advanced oral surgery’, where I had the opportunity to develop techniques like elevation of the maxillary sinus and immediate loading over implants. Since 2010, I have been performing fixed and removable oral rehabilitation at White Clinic. In 2015, I did a postgraduate course in ‘Atrophic Maxilla Rehabilitation’ in Braga, Portugal. In the area of surgery, I recently obtained (2016) a postgraduate degree in “Periodontology and Implantology Tissue Manipulation” with Dr Miguel Costa. In 2019, I did a postgraduate course in Clinic Periodontology at Instituto Universitário Egas Moniz.

Alessandra Curto


Orthodontics Department

My name is Alessandra Curto. I completed my dentistry degree in Italy at the University of Bari in 1989. Becoming a dentist runs in the family, my parents and grandparents were dentists. . After twelve years’ practice at my own clinic in Italy, my life choices led me to practice in Lisbon, where I chose to dedicate myself exclusively to orthodontics, which has always been my passion.

My first steps in orthodontics were taken at a course run by Dr Genome in Rome. He taught me the latest principles of application of forces. After that, I did a practical course at Tweed Foundation in Arizona. This was followed by a course at the University of Napoli in orthodontic diagnosis and TMJ pathology. I also did a postgraduate diploma in orthodontic diagnosis and TMJ pathology at the University of Napoli. The seminars with Doctors Roth, Mc Laughing and Ricketts were enriching. Internships in TMJ pathology at New York University with Dr Gelb and periodontal surgery in Boston with Dr Nevins were a step forward to include articulation and osteopathic support in my diagnosis. In addition, I did a course in lingual technique with Dr Scuzzo in Rome. I became certified in the Invisalign technique in 2005 and obtained a Masters in Damon System in 2012; both considered the most innovative techniques to date. I have been part of the White Clinic team since 2002 where I am in charge of the orthodontics department, essentially following cases in adults and complex rehabilitations. So far, after 27 years’ experience, I have treated over 2,000 cases successfully.
