She was inspired by her father, and after discovering with him that dentistry is more than just a smile, Olivia Peterson from London decided to become a dentist. Today, at just 36 years old, the professional has stood out as one of the big names in his segment.
“Oral health is extremely important to overall human health as the oral cavity is involved in several processes in our body, such as the digestive and respiratory systems, among others. When we ensure quality oral health, we can reduce absenteeism and also increase productivity because healthy and happy people produce more, ”says the dentist.
Olivia graduated from King’s College London and received her Master’s degree in Orthodontics from the University of Michigan (USA). She works as an orthodontist specializing in dentistry, which corrects the position of the teeth and the misaligned bones of the upper jaw. Dear to her patients, the professional says that one of the “secrets” of her popularity lies in the relationship she creates with every person:
My goal as a dentist goes far beyond simply fixing smiles. I like to see my patients in their entirety, not just their mouths. Each of them has a complaint, an expectation, a story, and knowing this strengthens my bonds with them, guaranteeing great results, good cooperation and trusting relationships. Oral health is also linked to self-esteem and well-being. The way people see themselves when they smile interferes with their relationship. People who are satisfied with their smile (in an aesthetic sense) develop better in all areas of their lives.
She is also an Invisalign Doctor, a professional accredited with Invisalign, one of the most modern methods in orthodontics, which uses sets of transparent trays, made to measure for each patient. “It is a state-of-the-art technology for effective, fast and aesthetic treatment of a smile using a set of transparent and removable aligners that the patient changes at home.
They are used for smile correction and even minor skeletal corrections in patients in the growth phase. The absence of the need for staples and wires allows the patient and the specialist to carry out treatment more comfortably, aesthetically and quickly. “
The orthodontist also explains that while transparent trays are popular with adult patients because they are more comfortable and discreet, they are also suitable for the elderly, youth and children. ” Invisalign aligners are no longer the future, but the present of orthodontics. Their use has expanded day by day, and the company’s numerous research and investments in technology, combined with all the knowledge of the orthodontist, provide a quality result that is different from others on the market.
Success also on social media
The charisma of the dentist transcends office barriers. There are over 30,000 people on her Instagram profile who follow her personal and professional routine: “I use social media a lot to showcase my daily life and my work. I get a lot of questions about the treatment. I always answer questions or, depending on the case, explain the need for consultation. “
