My father was a primary school teacher. I am the first in my family who made it to graduate. I’m a self-made man. I started working for others.

In 1999 i finally got my own practice. during the years of specialization i learned to be a surgeon and a dentist..
“of necessity i made virtue” and i tryed to improve both.
after the specializations i started to peek at the prestigious names of my profession.
immediately i felt in love with optical magnification: the dentist works in an operational field ranging in microns.
now-a-day the microscope in dentistry is still used almost exclusively in endodontics or to take beautiful pictures. i use it in all disciplines.
in 2014 i realized a dream: i gave birth to, a website providing videos recorded under the microscope. an absolute novelty for the dental community i was born 1/10/1960 in Arezzo (Italy).
