I am a very open, communicative and reliable person, who is always willing to help.
I chose to study dentistry, because I had already worked as a dental assistant in dr. Franko’s practice during secondary school. I also received a scholarship from this practice. I feel at home in this practice and am very happy that my path has led me back; this time in the role of a dentist.
Actually it was hard to choose between studying dental medicine and general medicine. I knew, I wanted to help people, but at the same time I was enthusiastic about aesthetics and handwork. That is how dentistry prevailed and today I know, that I made the right decision.
Life was always interesting and diverse during my studies. I usually finished my exams as soon as possible, so twice a year I had a lot of time for oversea travels with the purpose of surfing. I got to know many different cultures, broadened my horizon and learned to fluently speak brazilian portuguese. I earned the money necessary for my travels by working as an assistant and by holding a scholarship for talented students. For a few months I also worked as an assistant in Rio de Janeiro.
As a student, I became fascinated with laser dentistry, while working Melita Franko’s practice. I mainly learned about the practical aspect of using a laser, and towards the end of my studies I attended several theoretical training courses in this field. Now it is an indispensable device for my daily use in the practice.
Immediately after my professional exam I started my first job in a public and private dental clinic in Muljava, where I worked for one year. After that I got a job at a private dental clinic in Ljubljana, where I stayed for another year. I believe that both experiences have given me broad insights into private and public health dentistry and a lot of practical experience.
I am looking forward to new challenges in my career and collaborating again with Melita Franko, dr. dent. med.
