Josiane Almeida

Doctor Josiane Almeida graduated in Dentistry from the Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil, in 2006. She then went on to complete her specialization in Endodontics in 2009, followed by a Master’s degree in 2012 and a PhD in Endodontics in 2016, both from the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil.
In 2014, Dr. Almeida relocated to Amsterdam to conduct her PhD research at the Department of Preventive Dentistry at the Academic Center for Dentistry Amsterdam (ACTA) in the Netherlands. Her doctoral thesis earned her a national honourable mention from Coordination for Higher Education Staff Development (CAPES) in 2017.
Throughout her career, Dr Almeida has focused her research primarily on endodontic microbiology and dental materials. In 2019, she completed a postdoctoral degree in Chemical Engineering, where she worked on regenerative endodontic procedures.
Since 2016, Dr. Almeida has been working at the Department of Endodontics at the University of Southern Santa Catarina in Brazil. She founded a research group called Biomaterials and Biofilm in Dentistry and also teaches postgraduate courses in Endodontics.
Recently, Dr. Almeida’s research has centred on radiotherapy and its implications for dental structures and endodontic treatment. This is the subject of another post-doctoral project that she is currently undertaking. In addition to her academic work, Dr. Almeida also maintains a private practice dedicated exclusively to Endodontics.
