Domenico graduated in Medicine and Surgery at the University of Rome in 1981; after completing a medical speciality in Dentistry at the same University in 1984, he then obtained a second speciality in Plastic Surgery at the University of Milan in 1989. During this period he worked in various Departments of Maxillofacial Surgery and Plastic Surgery, developing a vast experience in both fields.

After ten years working in hospitals, he decided to dedicate himself to private career, focusing on Periodontology and Oral Surgery. Ever since he has been working as a consultant and referral for several practices.

He inserted his first implant in 1992. It was a Straumann implant, chosen after a very conscientious exam of the various implant systems in the market. He never regretted this decision, and until now he has performed more than 6000 implants with great satisfaction. He regularly treats complex surgical cases (sinus lift, bone block grafts, vertical augmentation).

During these years he developed a close relation with the Straumann Company, creating a new series of osteotomes specifically dedicated to their implants and collaborated as a researcher to test them and also other products. Moreover, he is a dedicated ITI member, teacher and speaker.

He firmly believes the Straumann Mentoring system is a great way for his young colleagues to learn from experience, to share knowledge and passion for this speciality. With his 25 years of practice in Implantology, he is extremely proud to be able to mentor and assists his colleagues through their first years in this field.
