Professor Eustáquio Araújo received his DDS degree from the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil. He received his certificate in Orthodontics and Masters in Dental Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh.

Dr. Araújo returned to Brazil where he initiated his academic career as an Assistant Professor of the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais. He soon became involved with administrative duties and was made Director of the Biology and Health Sciences Institute, later becoming the Dean of the Dental School. After serving for several years as the Orthodontic Program Director at Saint Louis University, Dr. Araújo returned to PUC Minas as the President of the University with more than 50,000 students and 5,000 professors and employees. He kept his private office in Brazil working with his associates in order to maintain himself close to his greatest passion: Orthodontics. During those 4 years he continued to lecture, at least two times a year, at Saint Louis University.

In 2007 Dr. Araújo returned to Saint Louis University as a full- time professor and presently is the Associate Director for the Center of Advanced Dental Education, Orthodontic Clinic Director and the Pete Sotiropoulos Endowed Professor of Orthodontics. He has recently been awarded the Louis Jada Jarabak Award in recognition for his services to orthodontics and academics.
