Riccardo said, “I teach periodontology, implant dentistry and advanced surgical techniques in a postgraduate university setting. I also lecture locally and nationally, hoping to contribute to increase the knowledge and skills of my dental colleagues. My main interests are in periodontal tissue regeneration, rehabilitation of patients with dental implants, gum plastic surgery and bone grafts. I am comfortable treating periodontal and dental implant cases of all levels of complexity, using the knowledge and skills acquired through my postgraduate qualifications, clinical experience and postgraduate teaching experience.
