Dentist – Dr Italo Carpes Moraes



Being a dentist can be such a rewarding and fulfilling job. Especially when a strong rapport and connection is build between patients and the professional.

I perceive dentistry as an opportunity to guide and restore the wellbeing of my patients. Having a healthy and beautiful smile can bring happiness and improve the self-image of people.

My daily satisfaction at work is to be able to build trustful relationships with patients, where most of previously developed traumas, anxieties and fears tend to decrease or even disappear.

In my opinion, there is no more room in dentistry today for paternalist/authoritarian postures. As a dentist I strive to be more like a guide, or a friend, being co-responsible for the patient’s oral health.

At our Moorgate/Holborn Studio, you will feel as comfortable as possible without the sensation of being at a “traditional dentist”. We do our best to be on time, conveniently easy to access and deliver the best services.
