CHICAGO - Dec. 23, 2014 - PRLog -- “It’s great to come back as a faculty member,” said Dr. Thiago Vinhas, Clinical Assistant Professor, Oral Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry.

         Dr. Vinhas earned his DDS from the College in 2014, and was pleased to receive an offer to teach at the College.

         “I’m involved with pre-clinical courses, and I’ve been working with Dr. Ken Gehrke and Dr. Anna Organ-Boshes,” Dr. Vinhas explained. He has taught students on removable and fixed partial dentures, “guiding them through their lab work on the basics, helping them understand concepts, and training them in and helping them practice hand dexterity, so that they have a good foundation to apply later on patients.

         “Teaching is never a one way street,” Dr. Vinhas continued. “At the same time that I hope to be successfully training future professionals to the best of their abilities—instigating critical thinking and stimulating their interest in several aspects of dentistry, such as attention to detail—there is always something to learn from them on daily practice; things that improve my skills as well.”

         Dr. Vinhas also works as a general dentist for Smiles of Niles in Niles, IL. Hailing originally from Brazil, he is fluent in Portuguese, English, and Spanish.
