The Instituto Português da Face was founded by Dr David Sanz and Prof. Dr David Ângelo in 2016.
Dr David Sanz, a maxillofacial surgeon who worked in the central part of the country, specialized in orthognathic surgery and temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
dysfunction. Prof. Dr David Ângelo has developed the same skills in the same area. In May 2016, during a maxillofacial surgery internship by Prof. Dr David Ângelo at the Centro Hospitalar Universitário de Coimbra (CHUC) with Dr David Sanz, they embarked on a clinical collaboration that culminated in the foundation of the Instituto Português da Face(IPFACE).
Both felt the need to create and develop an international reference centre for facial treatments. Knowing that it is only possible to achieve excellence in treatments when the clinic is associated with research and training, they decided from the outset that IPFACE would be developed on this basis.
In our pursuit of excellence in medical treatments, as doctors, we focus on offering our patients treatments based on the best scientific evidence and personalized follow-up in each particular case, because at IPFACE we know that each patient is unique.
