Dr Joanna is a dual qualified dentist and medical doctor. This has allowed her to become an advanced medical aesthetic doctor with a special interest in facial musculature, gained through her years of experience in both fields.
Dr Joanna studied in oral and maxillofacial surgery at University College London Hospital, Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ School of Medicine and Dentistry, and Queen Mary University of London, gaining degrees with licence to practice in both medicine and dentistry. She added to her expertise at Harvard Dental School in Boston, MA and The New York University College of Dentistry.
It is her unique knowledge of the structure of the face, combined with her training in aesthetics, which has allowed Dr Joanna to create the signatory ‘natural look’ for her patients.
