Welcoming New Faculty: Alexandre Cabrera

 

Cabrera
Cabrera sees his position as a perfect opportunity to combine his professional clinical experience with his love for teaching the DMD students and providing patient care.

Alexandre Cabrera is a clinical assistant professor who joined our college in October 2020 in the Department of Restorative Dental Sciences Division of Prosthodontics. His focus is on didactic instruction for dental students and he also provides patient care in the college’s UF Health Faculty Dental Practice.

Carbrera earned his dental degree from the Methodist University of Sao Paulo in Brazil in 1994 and then spent 23 years working in private practice. During that time he also completed a residency in prosthodontics in 1999 and then joined the Methodist University as a part-time member of their faculty from 1998 to 2008.

Eventually he focused his practice on placing and restoring dental implants, which led to him being invited as a speaker on dental implants throughout the world. In 2014 he completed a certificate in implantology from the Sao Paulo Association of Dentistry and then became the implant program director of the Brazilian Association of Dentistry.

In 2018 Cabrera came to the University of Florida to begin a two-year fellowship in periodontology, affording him a broader multidisciplinary vision of treatment planning in Dentistry as an educator.

“This new position is a perfect opportunity to combine my professional clinical experience with my love in teaching the DMD students and providing patient care in Faculty Practice Center,” Cabrera said.

He has been a member of the Brazilian Association Dentistry and the São Paulo Association of Dentistry since 1994; the International Congress of Oral Implantology – Brazilian Division since 2013; and the Brazilian Implant Group since 2018.
