By: UIC 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,”
“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.
