Bupa Dental Care Winchester
GDC - 202790 Statutory Exam 2010, BDS University of Belgrade 2000 Dentist
Jelena graduated from the dental school of the University of Belgrade in 2000. Soon after completing her vocational training, she was awarded a scholarship to join a dental school in Geneva, to undertake teaching and research. She then completed a PhD at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry in 2006, where she later worked as a clinical lecturer and supervised students working within clinic and research facilities.
Passionate about teaching, Jelena has also achieved a postgraduate certificate in learning and teaching.
Speaking about her role, Jelena said, “My priorities are to make sure that my patients fully understand the treatment as well as feeling comfortable and at ease as much as possible. I believe that once someone understands why certain treatment needs to be done, they are better placed to choose the right treatment for them and are more able to deal with relatively longer sessions compared to the usual dental visits for simple fillings. My passion is teaching, and research and I try to bring this knowledge and experience to my everyday practice. Also, when necessary I apply some calming and reassuring techniques used in paediatric dentistry to help anxious patients relax and make their time with us less worrying and more tranquil.’’
