Say "Hello" to Gabriel Sousa Lima, our Dental Assistant here at Happy Dental. Gabriel came all the way from Santa Helena de Goias, Brazil, and we are thrilled to have him a part of our team.
After graduating from University Federal of Uberlanda with a dental degree in 2021, Gabriel moved to the states to be closer to family and to continue his dental education and career.
If Gabriel is not at work helping people feel confident with their smile, you can find him at the gym or enjoying some 'picanha' with family and friends.
