Dr. Victor P. Feitosa

– Head of Research and Professor of Dental Biomaterials and Operative Dentistry (Paulo Picanço School of Dentistry and Unifametro, Fortaleza, Brazil)

– He has graduated in Dentistry at Piracicaba Dental School, State University of Campinas, Brazil in 2009.

– Has concluded his Masters (2011) and Ph.D. (2013) degrees at the same University.

– During the Ph.D., he concluded the Sandwich Doctorate period at King’s College London Dental Institute, London, England.

– He was awarded with Best Brazilian PhD thesis in Dentistry in 2014. In 2015, he was awarded with IADR Unilever Hatton in Brazilian Division of IADR.

– He finished the Post-doctoral period in 2018 at Federal University of Ceará at Fortaleza, Brazil.

– He published more than 60 scientific papers and deposited 6 patents.

– He has expertise in Research and Development of Dental Biomaterials and Operative Dentistry, with main research topics in Dental Adhesives, Composite Resins, Remineralization of Dental Hard Tissues as well as Dental Pulp Bioengineering.

Development of new biomaterials and clinical techniques with recycling and sustainability

Most dental materials are manufactured by synthetic compounds. However, several plant-derived materials, particularly some industrial residues, are available with likelihood for application in dental field. In this regard, the presentation will provide some application of these compounds in adhesive dentistry and dentin desensitizing, as well as future trends for the use of recycling in new dental biomaterials.
