Dr Patricia Vivaldi brings to Apple Dental 20 years of experience as a family and cosmetic dentist, working in private practices both in Australia and in her native homeland of Brazil. She obtained her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the prestigious University of Parana (UFPR) in 2000 and has been practicing in Australia since 2014.
Patricia is extremely passionate about Cosmetic Dentistry and is particularly recognised for her knowledge of aesthetics and her artistic skills in improving smiles in a natural and conservative way. She attended a post-grad training course at the worldwide renowned Fahl Institute in Brazil, where she learned the most up to date techniques in natural and conservative cosmetic dentistry.
She believes that by using a multidisciplinary approach, she can provide her patients with the best possible outcomes. For this reason, Dr Vivaldi is always seeking new knowledge to complement her existing skills. She is an Invisalign provider and is accredited to perform facial injectables.
Having a Masters degree in Paediatric Dentistry under her belt, Dr Vivaldi also provides a comprehensive approach to children’s dental treatments including assessment of habits, growth and breathing patterns. She believes that prevention, early detection and early intervention result in the delivery of the best care for her young patients.
Her calm, gentle and caring manner have made her popular amongst families. Children love to see Dr Vivaldi at Apple Dental, and leave their appointments with a balloon sculpture made by her on the spot.
When not at work, Patricia is kept busy looking after her two children and their Bichon Frise, Cruiser. Her passions outside dentistry are playing the piano and practicing Bikram yoga.
