Professor J. Martin Palomo is a graduate of the Ponta Grossa State University and proudly hails from Ponta Grossa, Brazil. He was selected to specialize at the prestigious Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine (CWRU) in Cleveland Ohio and during his graduate training, began to feel that he could serve the profession more broadly through academics and specifically through imaging. Dr Palomo?s ambition has always been to serve his native Brazil; he has worked in Curitiba, the mayorship of Manoel Ribas, and the university of UNIPAR, in Umuarama. While working as an orthodontist in Brazil, he was invited to return to CWRU and appointed to Clinic Director and Research Fellow of the Bolton Brush Center. Dr Palomo earned several awards for his teaching from the American Association of Orthodontics and chaired their Council on Education Leadership Implementing Evidence Based Dentistry. Today Dr. Palomo is the Director of Orthodontics and Chair of the Graduate Studies Committee at CWRU. He has built the premier imaging center in the Midwest and is busy authoring the American Dental Association position paper on the subject. He has assembled an award winning team of top notch researchers, clinical orthodontists, physicians, and graduate students who contribute to the profession. His ambition is to serve his native Brazil through authorship, speaking, meetings, and collaborations. Dr. Palomo is married to a periodontist and they have a 7 year-old daughter and three dogs.
