Dr. Ricardo DaSilva
Dr. Ricardo DaSilva has always had an interest in the amazing field of Biology and a strong affinity with manual, delicate work. Dentistry came to fulfill those two aspects of his life, both as profession and a passion.
Dr. DaSilva first graduated from the Universidade Gama Filho in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, class of 1998. He was one of the few selected for an intense General Practice extension program, focused in emergency and hospital dentistry, where he cared for the underserved, children, and people with disabilities with a variety of problems that encompassed from the ordinary tooth pain to more complex facial trauma and infection cases. The compassion and the dedication he nurtured for his patients soon earned him the esteem and respect of both fellow students and instructors.
Dr. DaSilva has interest in dental implants, and studied about surface treatments in the Biomaterials Department at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
Meeting his future wife in Brazil, Dr. DaSilva moved to the United States, where she lived. His Family then moved to Colorado where he obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2008, graduating at the top of his class.
Dr. DaSilva believes that the most valuable service he can provide to his patients is education in prevention. He takes the time to explain why and how problems happen, what should be done to stop what is causing them, and that way he ensures that the dental treatment he provides can last for years to come.
In his free time, Dr. DaSilva enjoys hiking, biking, traveling with his wife, children, and his mini-Aussie dog, Cooper.
Dr. DaSilva is fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
