4 Generations of Dentists

It all started in 1906 with the first Sharp Dentistry family dental office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Since then we have been growing, moving, expanding, innovating and improving our services to bring together a professional team of specialists and the latest technology to serve all of our patient’s dental needs. Our new looking state of the art equipped office was carefully redone to better serve our clientele.
