Andrea Esteves completed her DDS degree at the State University of Londrina in 1989 and arrived at UBC from Brazil in 1991 as a graduate student in Oral Biology. Under Dr. Michael MacEntee's supervision, Esteves completed her MSc thesis, "Systemic Metabolism and Human Jaw Bone," to provide histological information on the bone around implants. While still a graduate student, she taught in a number of DMD courses and modules, including prosthodontics. Esteves graduated in 1994, and in 1996 began at UBC as a clinical advisor and practitioner, soon taking on a larger role as clinic manager. Her leadership proved invaluable as a key member of the planning team for the Nobel Biocare Oral Health Centre, where she has been clinic director since 2009. Esteves has also been involved as a clinician supporting many of the Faculty's geriatric dentistry research projects.
