Dr Luis Barbosa

Since I was young, I have always wanted to travel and know different cultures. During my dentistry degree at the University of Porto, I had the opportunity to study abroad. I was awarded two international scholarships for the University of Poznan, Poland, and the world-renowned Faculty of Dentistry of Bauru of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I started my professional career in Sweden, where I learned world-class public dental service practices and protocols.

After two years in Sweden, I decided it was time to try something different and moved to Aberdeen, Scotland, where I worked for five years. During this time, I met Eduardo Crooke, Europe’s leading implantologist, who inspired me to get my Postgraduate Certificate in Implantology and was a great mentor.

The relationship brought the next step in my career when I was invited to work alongside him in his brand new Glasgow 3StepSmiles dental centre, using the latest technologies and procedures in dental implants.
