Dr. Flavio Molina

My name is Flavio Molina, and I am a Specialist in Dental Prosthodontics, Implants and Dental Rehabilitation. I graduated as a dentist in 1998. I have always undertaken good training courses throughout my professional life, hence the desire to bring excellent courses to Ireland and Europe.

In my brief history you can understand the soul of Dublin Dental Academy (DDA).

I started at the Faculty of Dentistry in 1995, at the University of Taubaté (UNITAU), Brazil. In 1996, I was awarded first prize for my first oral presentation at a scientific conference at COUT, then known as JOUT (Odontological Journey of the University of Taubaté).” It was my first presentation under the guidance of Professor Dr. Antônio Olavo Cardoso Jorge (Icon from Brazilian Microbiology).

In 1999, I opened my first dental office in my hometown, São José dos Campos, Brazil, where I started my clinical life. In the same year, I was an intern in Microbiology and Immunology at UNITAU, where I worked until 2002. After a few years of clinical and academic experience, I felt the need for more knowledge, so I joined the Prosthondontic Specialisation, at Universidade Estadual Paulista (FOSJC -UNESP) in São José dos Campos, Brazil, in 2004, under the supervision of Professor Dr. Renato Nishioka, where I concluded my specialty training in prosthodontics in 2006.

I started teaching alongside Professors Dr. Rogério Romeiro (Implant Team Brazil) and Dr. Luís Felipe Carvalho (PhD. Oral Pathology/Nanoscience) on specialty training and Continuing Professional Development courses in Dental Implants in 2006. Nevertheless, I still felt a greater need for knowledge, so I joined the Master of Oral Biopathology in 2006, under the guidance of Professor Dr. Luciane Dias de Oliveira, completing my dissertation defense in 2008.

In 2009, I started my Doctorate in Microbiology and Immunology under the guidance of Professor Dr. Antônio Olavo Cardoso Jorge. I completed my thesis defense and was awarded my PhD in 2011. Throughout all this additional training, I continued to work at my dental office in São José dos Campos. I also held the role of 1st Lieutenant Dentist of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) as a specialist in Dental Prosthetics from 2010 – 2016.

In 2016, I started a new journey in my life, closing my dental office and migrating to Porto, Portugal. I completed a second Master's Degree in Dentistry at the University Fernando Pessoa (UFP), where I defended my thesis under the guidance of Professor Dr Cristina Pina.

In 2017, I migrated to Dublin, Ireland, where I restarted my professional career with new challenges, working in several clinics and acting as a Specialist in Dental Prosthodontics, Implants and Dental Rehabilitation in the best Irish centres. My continued hunger for knowledge led me to undertake a third Master's Degree in Prosthodontics and New Technologies at the University of Siena, Italy in 2019.

The Dublin Dental Academy (DDA) was born in 2019 as a way to express my eagerness for knowledge, values and willingness to transmit what I have learned and continue to learn from several professors around the world. The DDA is the first Irish company dedicated to dental knowledge for dentists and dental technicians to access teaching by the most diverse and renowned professors in the world. Come with me on this new journey of learning!
