Bret Kaldvee

Hello!

I am dermatovenereology final year resident Bret Kaldvee. In addition to residency I am also active in the fields of science. I started my PhD studies in Tartu University Faculty of Medicine 2016. My research work is focused on psoriasis, specifically it investigates molecular mechanisms of psoriasis pathogenesis during biological treatment.

Passion for dermatology started during my studies in Tartu University. Dermatovenereology professor Külli Kingo planted the seed of love to dermatology and it has grown ever since. During that time I also started learning and practicing aesthetic medicine, it is safe to say that anti-aging medicine (botulinum toxin, fillers and lasers) have become my biggest passion. It is fascinating how much we can achieve with non-surgical aesthetic medicine. My goal in aesthetic medicine is to enhance patients natural beauty and erasing signs of aging.

Shared interest in aesthetic medicine brought me to work to Kotka private Hospital, which has the state of the art knowledge and equipment to fulfill all our patients needs.

I am a member of The Estonian Society for Dermatovenereologists (ENSAS), European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) and International Dermoscopy Society (IDS).

During my free time I enjoy gardening and handicraft. I am married and a mother of two.
