Glécio Vaz de Campos, DDS, received his DDS degree from the Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) in Araraquara, Brazil, in 1982. After he specialized in periodontics and prosthetics, several years of clinical practice led him to explore new techniques focusing on periodontal plastic surgery. In 1996, he was qualified on this subject at the Microsurgery Training Institute in Santa Barbara, California. He had a significant role in introducing periodontal and peri-implant plastic microsurgery techniques to Brazil and expanding the use of the operative microscope there. From 2000 to 2004, Dr Campos served as Director of the Operative Microscopy Department at the São Paulo Dental Association (APCD), where he organized the largest training facility on operative microscopy in South America. Dr Campos has coauthored 16 books related to periodontal and peri-implant plastic microsurgery, as well as scientific articles published in Brazil and abroad. Currently he maintains private practices in Jundiaí and São Paulo, Brazil, where he focuses on periodontal and peri-implant plastic microsurgery and offers regular training courses in his private microscopy laboratory in Jundiaí.
