Who Am I?

Milvia Di Gioia qualified as Dental Surgeon at University of Bari (Italy) in 1992.
Since then she has been dedicated to cosmetic dentistry and complex full mouth rehabilitation, always seeking the perfect balance between a beautiful smile and the harmony of the face.
In partnership with her sister Dr Eliana Di Gioia and her brother Dr Claudio Di Gioia they have been providing multidisclipinary high quality dental care for over 50 years in the practice founded by their father.

She took a Masters Degree in 2009 on Perioral and Oral non-surgical Cosmetic Treatment at the prestigious University of Padua (Italy), the first accredited university training on facial aesthetic treatment for dentists in Europe. Together with her mentor Dr Ezio Costa, one of the leading Italian physicians in Facial Aesthetics, she developed the philosphy of a new approach to the face in dentistry which is well presented in the book recently published “Estetica dei Tessuti Orali e Periorali in Odontoiatria”.

Through an accurate analysis of the patients’ face and smile, the appearance as well as dynamic expressions Dr Di Gioia is able to give them back a pleasant and balanced look.
She strongly believes that respecting the peculiarities of each face is the key for success and injectables are like chisels for face and lips sculpting.

More recently Dr Di Gioia did some research on injectable fillers with the new 3D technology (Polishape 3D srl) being able to confirm her ability to recreate with the treatment a very natural appearance and to enhance the natural beauty of the face.

Throughout the years Dr Di Gioia acquired expertise in all aspects of Botox therapy, Fillers, Biorevolumetry, Skin Rejuvenation, PRP rejuvenation, chemical Peels, and Cosmeceuticals.

She had the great pleasure to be trained by Dr Allastair Carruthers and Dr Benjamin Asher, the acclaimed world experts of combined facial botulinum and dermal filler treatments.

Dr Di Gioia’s accredited training and experience has allowed her to become a founding member and vice-president of Poiesis: a Scientific Society dedicated to Facial Aesthetics in Dentistry and well being.

She lectures on Facial Aesthetics topics in different congresses in Italy and other european countries and in hands on training courses for dentists on facial fillers.

Dr Di Gioia currently provides facial aesthetic clinical sessions in London, at LCIAD – The London Centre for Implant & Aesthetic Dentistry and in Bari (Italy).
