About Mateus G Rocha

Dr. Mateus Rocha received his DDS degree from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2013, a Master Degree and a PhD in Dental Materials from State University of Campinas, Brazil. Dr. Rocha has a career entirely dedicated to translational research in which the main focus is to apply findings from basic science to enhance oral health. With a background in computer science and internships in the field of nanoscience and chemistry, Dr. Rocha has developed singular dental biomaterials and biodevices with patents, prototypes and products. A strong believer in the power of education, Dr. Rocha is always finding educational methods to engage students in the basic concepts in dental biomaterials. His main goal is to make dental biomaterials easy to understand; thus, the students can think quickly and be ready to make decisions in different clinical scenarios.
