Full professor at the State University of São Paulo (UNESP) and University of São Paulo (USP), Dr. Paulo Sérgio Perri de Carvalho has many qualities among which is his consistency in teaching classes with words strictly pronounced in a strong and invariable voice. Specialist, MSc, PhD and full professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery and traumatology, Professor Perri devotes 34 hours of his week to his academic career. For this reason, he is oftentimes found on Marechal Rondon road, where he goes from Araçatuba (his home town) to Bauru.
Dr. Perri devotes his spare time to employing his practical-scientific knowledge and treating patients at his private clinic where he can enjoy the company of his wife, Prof. MSc. Mariliza Comar Astolphi de Carvalho, specialist in Restorative Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental prosthesis and Periodontology. Throughout his brilliant career, he devoted himself to the study of bone tissue. Nowadays, he is seen as an authority on bone graft. Dr. Perri’s great clinical experience in techniques for harvesting bone graft from the skull has enabled him to give theoretical classes that are well-provided with case and scientific reports previously investigated by him, which give a more realistic and precise tone to his explanations.
This interview gives us the opportunity to know about a dental surgeon who chose to make a difference by working as a professor, a researcher and a clinician, and in addition to that, by being a great person who goes from one dental specialty to another without further issues.
