About us

Melita Franko, dr. dent. med.

I was born in 1972 in Kranj, where I finished a high school of natural science and mathematics. I studied dentistry at the Medical faculty of Ljubljana. After my studies I volunteered for one year. During this time I acquired priceless experience.

My first employment took place in the Dental polyclinic in Kranj. I worked as a pediatric dentist in 2 primary schools. With time, I started to be interested more in adult dentistry, because there are many challenges in this field: because of countless novities education is needed all the time. When there was a vacancy for a job as an dentist for adults, I gladly accepted.

In the year 2007 I opened a private dental practice. I wish to offer my patients solutions that are possible with the use of the newest technology. This is why in 2012 I decided to buy a dental laser for soft and hard tissues. We are the only practice that owns this laser in Kranj. By using the laser I elevated the quality of dental procedures to my joy and the joy of my patient’s. The chosen laser offers numerous additional options for holistic treatment of patients which are already included in our practical work.

I have a daughter Janina, who already decided in her early childhood that she didn’t want to become a dentist. I like hiking in my free time and swimming during the summer. Because of the spine posture which I use during my work as a dentist, I practice the method called Feldenkrais.

I reguarly educate myself in the professional field at home and abroad. This is how I follow the trends in dentistry, where materials and technology are improving all the time. It enables me to offer the most modern and innovative techniques of treatment in my practice.

In our practice we always do our best for every patient and are never in a hurry for any service we provide, because otherwise it would affect the quality of the final product. That is why there are sometimes delays, for which we sicerely aologize to our patients in advance.

Jana was born in 1982 in Kranj. She went to primary school and high school in Kranj and finished dentistry in 2009. She got her first job as an independent dentist for children and adults in ZD Tržič. After that she returned to Kranj, where she focused mostly on her work with adults, which insures constant contact with modern techniques and materials that are used in adult dentistry. He focuses on communication with patients and tries to respond to every question, because she is positive that including patients into treatment actively is the key and that results are also better if oral health habits continue outside our practice too.

She has two sons, who never run out of questions for her. That is how she keeps up in every field, which insures her to perform her work well without it being a burdon.
