He has also dedicated a large part of his practice to pediatric surgery, participating in the management of dental impactions and pathologic conditions in children and adolescents of all ages.
Committed to education and patient care, Dr. Borges has published several articles in numerous scientific journals, as well as a book chapter in Oral and Maxillofacial Clinics of North America, with the goal of optimizing awareness and providing the best treatment possible for patients. As a clinical instructor in local anesthesia administration and adjunctive anesthetic techniques, Dr. Borges has developed proficiency in local anesthesia administration and deep sedation, providing a more comfortable environment and a more pleasant experience for his patients. He believes that it is the duty of every surgeon to maintain updated knowledge as technological advances modify the practice of medicine and maintains an adjunct faculty position in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Nova Southeastern University, where he works as a clinical professor and lectures on a monthly basis.
Treating each patient with the highest levels of respect and compassion, Dr. Borges continues to expand his scope of practice as a lifelong student, and strives to excel in every aspect of patient care, dedicating as much time as necessary to address all of his patients’ concerns and ensuring that each patient’s experience is as pleasant as possible.
