I came across a forum chat saying that I am ‘the doggiest dentist’. Actually … I am! 🙂
I am a veterinary dentist, mostly working with dogs and cats. In contemporary, rapidly expanding veterinary medicine, focusing on a specialty field is necessary for professional excellence. I know that only with this focus can I provide comprehensive services based on extensive knowledge and the constantly growing body of experience, that I started to develop after my graduation as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2004, firstly as a PhD student in Biomedicine at the University of Ljubljana, before moving to one of the world’s best Veterinary Schools for a three-year residency training in Dentistry and Oral Surgery at the University of California-Davis, USA. Since 2012, I have been in Slovenia to help you care for your pet’s oral and dental health.
I wish to pass on the knowledge I received from my excellent mentors and constant learning, because knowledge is dead if it is not shared. I teach students at the Veterinary Faculty, University of Ljubljana and I am a guest lecturer at the postgraduate study programme in surgery, anaesthesiology, ophthalmology, and veterinary dentistry at the Veterinary Faculty, University of Zagreb, Croatia. Since 2015, I have contributed to over 70 veterinary conferences in the USA, Malaysia, South Africa, Russia and several European countries, as well as at home in Slovenia.
In addition to clinical activities and teaching, I am also active in European and American Veterinary Dental Colleges, VOHC Council, the WSAVA Dental Standardization Project Committee, and the Veterinary Dentistry and Oromaxillofacial Surgery journal. I am a member of the European Veterinary Dental Society and recipient of national and international awards in veterinary medicine, a reviewer in several international journals, and the author of research and professional papers.
I really enjoy in my work – it is fulfilling and it enables me to meet inspiring people, see amazing places, and taste new flavours.
Looking forwards meeting you,
