Dr. Marcio Barros
Dr. Marcio Barros was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the middle child of three siblings. His passion for dentistry began at an early age, when he spent time learning about the profession at his mother’s dental practice. It was there that he began to learn the traits of compassion, dedication and self discipline , which would aid him in his own efforts to become a dentist.
Upon graduation from the University of Sao Paulo in 1991 Dr. Barros completed a three year orthodontic program. He worked as an orthodontist in Brazil until 2006 when he decided , with his wife Gulliana, to move the family to Canada.
After getting settled in Canada, Dr. Barros returned to the university life to become acquainted with the diversity of general practice once again. In the spring of 2013 he graduated from the International Dental Degree Completion Program at U.B.C. with a doctorate in dental medicine. He is grateful for the additional training he received at UBC’s state of the art clinic and will practice general dentistry with an interest in orthodontics.
While studying at UBC , Dr. Barros volunteered at the BC Cancer Agency, where he offered support and companionship to patients receiving chemotherapy.
