Maha Integrative Medicine is located at the heart of EU

Maha rolls out 500 m² of Integrative medicine and 500 m² of dentistry on two floors in a 14-story building in downtown Ljubljana at the heart of the EU.

Altogether we are 37 in staff in medical, dental, gastronomic, coordinating and supporting divisions. In the 2nd floor you will find reception and integrative dentistry and in the 3rd floor integrative medicine with a pharmacy shop and private gym. Just 5 min walk away a plant based bistro is waiting for you with its scientifically delicious alkaline food approved by dr. Perko himself. Your journey will most probably begin with Dr. Perko performing extensive biological medicine and dentistry diagnostics using dark field microscopy, HRV analysis, panoramic dental x-ray and probably dental CBCT. It takes 60 min, still most of the time it feels too short. According to findings you will be suggested necessary blood, urine and stool tests. You will continue with an Ayurvedic doctor who will among others perform pulse diagnostics.

Later on you will meet our nutrition specialist with whom you will go over all the details of your food regimen and recommendations that we know support our therapies. By now everyone knows that not every diet is for anyone. In the same day or maybe the next one you will get a complete overview of findings and therapy suggestions. Once you confirm the suggested plan our treatment coordinator will arrange your itinerary and your journey towards healthspan will begin.

Sebastjan Perko, phD, DMD
Expert in Biological Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Biological Medicine

From an early age, I developed a strong affinity for nature and a deep respect for the well-being of living organisms. These values, including the importance of clean water, a healthy environment, and the sanctity of life, have been integral to my character, requiring no persuasion or elaborate reasoning. Even during my high school years, I was determined to pursue a career in caring for people and their physical health.

Over the years, my experiences have exposed me to diverse cultural and medical perspectives, while active participation in conferences has broadened my scientific insights beyond local boundaries. Valuing personal health and well-being greatly, I have actively contributed to the development of the holistic dentistry concept at the Maha Clinic since 2013. This endeavor aligns with my enduring childhood inclinations and complements the comprehensive approach of the Maha Center and the nutritional focus of Maha Bistro, all collectively dedicated to fostering a healthy future for individuals.

My academic journey started at the Faculty of Medicine in Ljubljana, complemented by in-depth research on dental materials during my doctoral work at the International Postgraduate School of the Jožef Stefan Institute. This research culminated in the development of a groundbreaking bioactive mixture, certified and introduced to the dental profession just before the global pandemic. Through these experiences and my exposure to traditional medical systems, I have adeptly combined traditional and modern approaches to optimize health outcomes.

I am grateful for the support of my mentors and colleagues, as well as the contributions of our international partners, notably in Switzerland, whose long-standing commitment to similar healthcare practices serves as a continual source of inspiration and collaboration.

Ajda Ambrožič
Administration Manager and Business Organizer

For many years, I ran my own business, but during the economic crisis, my industry did not survive. I embarked on new paths, remaining employed in positions that involved daily interaction with people. Life presents us with ever-new challenges, prompting us to seek work that brings us happiness and enjoyment.

My first encounter with Maha Clinic was coincidental. My daughter needed orthodontic treatment to get braces. The condition of her teeth and jaw required additional wires in her mouth, which would have made her life difficult. The solution came in the form of the Invisalign invisible aligners offered at Maha Clinic. And her adolescence continues carefree.

Among the many job applications I submitted, one was for an administrative position at Maha Clinic. I was invited for an interview, and now I am here. In this wonderful combination of working with patients, organizational tasks, and collaborating with dedicated professionals, I continuously learn interesting new things.

The owners offered me an opportunity, and I accepted it. When I go to work at Maha Clinic, the most important thing to me is going to a place where I genuinely enjoy being among the people I spend most of my day with. Every day, I go to work with a smile, surrounded by friendly colleagues and patients.

The team of therapists, assistants, and everyone we collaborate with is made up of positive and pleasant individuals.

Erik Božič
Project Manager and Business Organizer

As a former professional chef with a rich international career, I gradually transitioned away from the hospitality industry during the pandemic year of 2020 and found myself drawn to financial matters and business organization. I have an educational background in philosophy and economics, which complements my wide range of competencies and knowledge gained through various work and entrepreneurial experiences. I value humility, which is why I constantly engage in self-education and strive to broaden my horizons. The guiding principles of my career are sustainability and conscious decision-making, which I aim to apply to all aspects of my life.

My main hobbies include nature walks, sports activities, and exploring and analyzing financial markets. I joined Maha Clinic as a project manager and business organizer. I also oversee Bistro Maha, where I act as a kitchen mentor and consultant.

Bojan Vidniš, DMD
Expert in Biological Dentistry

“My interest in how the human body works dates back to my early childhood when I eagerly read all popular science magazines and encyclopedias that came my way. This path led me to a science-oriented high school in Maribor and then to the study of dental medicine at the Faculty of Medicine in Ljubljana.

I have always strived to seek the essence of everything, and during my studies, I systematically explored various worldviews through psychology and philosophy. This quest gradually led me through many periods of human thought, providing me with many answers but also numerous new questions. Finally, this search led me to yoga and Ayurveda, the magnificent Indian treasures of wisdom and knowledge about life.

Over 10 years ago, I encountered the authentic and traditional Indian yoga of the Bihar School of Yoga, which is among the most respected yoga schools in the world. Here, I met my teacher of yoga science and Ayurvedic doctor, Swami Vishwashakti Saraswati. Under her guidance and mentorship, I completed initial yoga courses, integral yoga, prana vidya, chakra shuddhi, and kriya yoga. I also attended a two-and-a-half-year education for Ayurvedic and marma therapists at the Tara Yoga Center.

While working in Oral Medicine, where I particularly focus on holistic dentistry and the connection between oral health and the whole body, the desire to merge knowledge from the field of traditional Indian medicine with modern medical discoveries gradually formed within me. With an invitation from colleague Sebastjan Perko, I happily began collaborating with the integrative Maha Clinic. Today, I continue to enhance my knowledge with the latest findings in contemporary nutrition, with a special emphasis on plant-based diets, through education in integrative medicine under the guidance of Dr. Thomas Rau from the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland, and through further development in dark-field microscopy, which represents a fundamental diagnostic tool of Biological Medicine.”

Marko Berkopec, DMD
Expert in Oral Surgery

“I spent my childhood in the pleasant environment of Vavta vas near the Krka River. Even as a child, I was interested in technology, model aviation, and music. I demonstrated my manual skills by playing classical guitar and later baritone. After completing high school in Novo mesto, I decided to study dental medicine at the Faculty of Medicine. I successfully completed my studies in 2007, and after completing my internship and professional examination, I was employed at the Health Center Ljubljana – Bežigrad, where I briefly held the position of the head of adult dentistry. I was also a regular member of professional commissions. Throughout, I strived for progress and development, regularly attending seminars, congresses, and professional workshops at home and abroad. However, within the public dental healthcare system, I couldn’t provide patients with everything that modern dentistry has to offer.

I gladly accepted the invitation from Dr. Perko and Dr. Bele to join the team in May 2016. In this pleasant environment, surrounded by like-minded people, I can finally realize my professional ambitions and offer patients comprehensive care at the highest level.

Jelena Božić, DMD
Biological Dentist

I come from the small city of Banja Luka, located in the northwest of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I have been living in Ljubljana for several years now, as I immediately fell in love with it. I admire its beauty, the green river, chestnut trees, and the morning mist that often reminds me of my hometown.

The world of dentistry caught my interest when I was just 15 years old, and I enrolled in a dental technician program at a healthcare high school. I further advanced my knowledge at the Medical Faculty in Banja Luka and became a Doctor of Dentistry after completing my studies.

Every day at the Maha Clinic brings new challenges where I continually gain new knowledge and experiences, which further motivates me. I never go to work with a heavy heart; it feels as if I am going to my so-called second home. My colleagues and guests at Oral Medicine are almost like my second family.

Simon Bele, DMD
Expert in General Biological Dentistry

From a young age, I showed signs of becoming a dentist. As a child, to the delight of my grandfather, I drilled quite a few holes in the facade of my grandparents’ house in Straža near Novo mesto. That was my first encounter with drilling. Of course, I didn’t patch up those holes; I learned how to do that much later. Since my father is a construction worker, and I have always been interested in buildings of all kinds, I initially considered becoming an architect in primary school. However, during my high school years, an extraordinary motorcyclist named Džuro came into my life, who had a drilling license. Thanks to him, I began contemplating a career as a dentist.

Thus, I became a first-year student at the Faculty of Medicine in Ljubljana, studying dental medicine. Seven years later, as a young dentist, I was employed at the Health Center Novo mesto, where despite my knowledge and great desire, I didn’t enjoy it much since I often had to say “no” to patients. Therefore, I soon opened my private practice. Several years later, during further education, I met Sebastjan Perko, my college mate. This chance encounter brought about the idea of expanding the concept of the Maha Clinic to Dolenjska, and there was no doubt about my future professional path, as the Maha Clinic is a team of exceptional individuals, experts who enjoy their profession, or rather, their mission. Here, we practice true and genuine dentistry that I have been seeking for eight years.”

Špela Vidmar, DMD
Biological Dentist

I am glad to be a part of Maha Clinic. I am ambitious and enjoy helping others. It brings me happiness to see a smile on your face. As the oldest child in my family, I have always taken care of others, helped them, and created. This led me to pursue dentistry from the age of 14.

I completed my education at the Dental Technical School in Ljubljana and then enrolled in the study of dental medicine in Sarajevo. Moving to another country brought me new experiences, acquaintances, independence, and a different perspective on the world and cultures.

After completing my studies, I returned to Ljubljana, my hometown, and started working at Maha Clinic. I am impressed by their holistic approach to healthcare and guests. I look forward to coming to work every day because I am greeted by a pleasant team and new challenges that motivate me to further develop, learn, and improve.

Alenka Andjelić Dolžan, mag. farm. homeopat

Having spent my childhood in the rural area of Gorenjska, living in harmony with nature, locally grown food, fresh air, and natural springs were natural to me. We alleviated health problems with medicinal herbs, and in times of stress, I sought solace in wandering through forests, where I found peace, calmness, and focus. Traditional use of medicinal herbs led me to study pharmacy at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Ljubljana, and for 25 years, I have been a hospital pharmacist. However, I soon felt the need to offer more than just symptom relief with medications. I wanted to acquire more knowledge about well-being. Homeopathy was love at first sight. In 2004, under the guidance of Dr. E. Dervišević, I completed a four-year training program at the French Federation of Homeopathy Societies (FFSH). I supplemented my training with classical IACH training with Prof. G. Vithoulkas and further enhanced my skills with the Sensation Method by Dr. R. Sankaran and Case Witnessing Process by Dr. D. Chauhan during my work at a clinic in India, with whom I have been collaborating for several years. I organize homeopathic symposia to promote the spread of homeopathic knowledge among pharmacists. The introduction of homeopathic medicines in Slovenian pharmacies in 2011 stimulated the revival of this 200-year-old method of treatment, which we integrate for acute, chronic, and psychosomatic problems. Our approach is individualized, aiming to find balance on all levels: physical, emotional, and mental. Homeopathic medicines are prepared through dilution and potentization of substances from the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms, making them safe and sustainable. I combine homeopathic treatment with Bach flower essences and facial analysis based on the principles of Schuessler’s tissue salts. In addition to the satisfaction of patients who have rediscovered their essence, my greatest joys are traveling the world, engaging in recreation, reading good books, and fruitful debates.

Jure Vraničar, ba. pth.
Analytical psychology trainee and IAAP router

I am a trainee in analytical psychotherapy (Jungian psychotherapy), an IIAP router, and a master’s student in psychotherapeutic sciences. I am a member of the Slovenian Association for Analytical Psychology (SZAP), the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP), and actively participate as a member of the board in the Mindfulness Development Association.

I work with individuals and provide in-depth psychotherapy based on the principles of Jungian analysis. The journey into the depths of the psyche can increase self-awareness, help find true answers to life-changing questions, and lead to a more fulfilling life. A significant part of my work involves men and women who feel stuck in their lives or are struggling with anxiety, depression, addictions, burnout, mental disorders, or challenges in their relationships.

Jungian psychotherapy is based on the idea that the unconscious is our largest and most powerful psychophysical element, with which we learn to establish a collaborative relationship. By integrating conscious and unconscious elements of our psyche, we reduce psychological suffering and problems and become creatively unique.

In addition to the process of integrating conscious and unconscious parts of the mind in Jungian psychotherapy, I also explore our relationship with nature and how reconnecting with nature can help us rediscover a sense of wholeness within ourselves. Jung called this archetype of wholeness the Self.

In the therapeutic process, I ensure professionalism, confidentiality, and anonymity in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act. I am committed to the ethical code of the Slovenian Chamber of Psychotherapists (SKZP) and the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP).

I continuously invest in my own process of self-discovery and growth through Jungian psychoanalysis. I also engage in additional education to deepen my understanding of Jungian psychology, sandplay therapy, psychedelic psychotherapy, mindfulness, and spirituality.

Aleksander Donaj
Manual Therapist and Personal Trainer

I have been involved in martial arts since my early youth. I trained Shito Ryu Karate for three years and Jiu Jitsu for one year. Then I became interested in mountaineering and fitness. I completed my training for the title of Mountaineer in 2002 by passing the exam conducted by the Alpine Commission of the Mountaineering Association of Slovenia. In 2005, I obtained my fitness instructor and group exercise instructor certification from the Fitness Association of Slovenia. To enhance my practical training knowledge, I enrolled in and completed several additional certifications over the following years. In 2013, I became a personal trainer certified by FISAF, a STOTT Pilates instructor, and a SPINNING instructor. In 2015, I became a Kettlebell lifting instructor, and most recently, I obtained certification as an Olympic weightlifting instructor from the European and Slovenian Olympic Weightlifting Associations. In addition to these qualifications, I am a registered Fitness Instructor with the Fitness Association of Slovenia and listed in the register of professionally educated and trained workers in sports under the Ministry responsible for sports. As I wanted to expand my knowledge in the field of therapies, I enrolled in a three-year study program in Manual Therapy at the Academy for Manual Therapy in Ljubljana, which I completed in 2019.

In addressing musculoskeletal problems of patients, I combine over 15 years of experience and extensive practical knowledge of body movement, training individuals and groups, and various manual techniques used in Manual Therapy. Manual Therapy does not involve the use of drugs or other invasive forms of treatment but relies on a combination of different manual techniques to identify and address the root causes of problems. Manual Therapy is effective in treating various conditions, including back pain, joint pain, sciatica, nerve inflammation, and mobility issues.

My primary goal in every treatment is to restore balance, influence the body holistically, and promote long-term health. Regardless of whether it’s training or Manual Therapy, I approach each patient as a whole person and provide individual attention. I conduct a structural-functional examination and assess the patient’s status, based on which I develop a therapeutic plan. If during testing I determine that Manual Therapy is not the appropriate approach for a specific problem, I refer the patient to another healthcare professional.

Biju Muthu
Ayurveda therapist

I am an Ayurvedic therapist with 15 years of experience and I am thrilled to be a part of Maha Clinic. I have worked in India and Europe at various Ayurvedic centers with highly experienced doctors, continuously expanding my knowledge of Ayurvedic therapeutic practices.

I am well-versed in all Ayurvedic Panchakarma therapies (Ayurvedic detox therapy), Kerala Ayurvedic massages, including head, face, neck, back, and foot massages. In addition to Ayurvedic massages, I perform deep tissue massages, fruit massages, reflexology, facial therapies, and cupping therapy. It brings me great joy to collaborate with Maha Clinic and share my knowledge of Ayurveda, which contributes to your well-being.

Tjaša Žnidarišič, dipl. lab. zob. prot.
Dental Prosthetist

I could describe myself as an ambitious, organized, and reliable individual. Even in my childhood, I showed great interest in creating and designing. Therefore, I often utilized my free time to create jewelry and shape various objects from clay or dough. I knew that in the future, I wanted a profession where I could develop my creativity and artistic skills, so I enrolled in the High School for Pharmacy, Cosmetics, and Health, specializing in dental technology. I successfully completed high school with honors. This was followed by an internship at the Health Center Ljubljana – Vič. I truly enjoyed my work there, but I also desired to further expand my knowledge. Consequently, I enrolled in the Faculty of Health Sciences in Ljubljana, specializing in laboratory dental prosthetics, and graduated in November 2018.

I began my professional journey as a dental assistant. This allowed me to gain insights into my profession from a different perspective, but I still longed to work in a dental laboratory. When the opportunity to work at Maha Clinic arose, I gladly accepted it. I have always wanted to work in an organized environment surrounded by a motivated and dedicated team. Working at Maha Clinic enables me to experience personal and professional growth.

Ana Lea Vukovič
Dental Technician

In the 7th grade of primary school, I fell in love with the profession of dental technician. I always yearned for design and creativity. When my parents enrolled me in tennis lessons (at the age of 6), I would often make small dough creations on the artificial sand court rather than playing tennis. I knew that in this profession, I could enjoy myself and utilize my full potential. I find it easier to transform a mental image into a 3D shape than to draw it on a piece of paper.

I began my professional journey at the High School for Pharmacy, Cosmetics, and Health, specializing in dental technology. After completing my education, I underwent an internship at the Health Center Ljubljana, Moste unit. Later, after passing the professional examination, I found employment in a dental laboratory. I continuously enhance my knowledge through seminars and educational programs, both single-day events and multi-day courses.

Later, the opportunity to work at Maha Clinic presented itself. Due to the excellent team of colleagues and my passion for the work, I eagerly come to work every day. The working environment, which encourages personal and professional growth on both levels, makes my career path a fairy tale come true.

Sara Lepenik
Oral Hygienist

I come from Mengše, where I grew up in a family with three children. I spent most of my early childhood with my grandmother, who filled my life with daily joy, music, and the desire to develop myself. I always aspired to become a professional violinist, but as I matured, I realized that playing the violin would remain one of my hobbies.

My path led me to dentistry. Enrolling in the study program of oral hygiene was one of the best decisions in my life, as I found a profession that truly brings me joy. During my studies, I started working at Maha Clinic, which gave me the opportunity to familiarize myself with various branches of dentistry. I began working at Dentoteka, where I gained significant experience with oral hygiene tools, which now greatly aids me in my work. The opportunity to share my knowledge with people in daily practice is the greatest wealth that enriches me day by day. Proper oral hygiene is a crucial element in dentistry, and my mission is to teach each individual the correct practices.

Maha Clinic motivates me to pursue new knowledge, and I look forward to all the upcoming challenges.

Katja Erjavec Damjanović
Oral Hygienist

Driven by the desire to help people, which has accompanied me since my early youth, I enrolled in the study program of oral hygiene. During my studies, I realized that the work aligns perfectly with my skills, which further motivated me to acquire knowledge in working with people in a dental environment. The work I do brings me great satisfaction due to its dynamic nature and the desire for continuous improvement.

Naturally, I am energetic and always optimistic, which I believe is crucial when working with our guests. I take great pleasure in being part of such a successful team as the Maha Clinic. Here, I am constantly inspired by the work methodology, high-quality services, and the fact that no one is just a number. Every individual matters here.

Tjaša Ribič, dipl. diatet
Dietitian and Nutritional Consultant

“Driven by the desire to acquire in-depth knowledge of health and nutrition, I decided to pursue studies in dietetics after completing high school. This knowledge now enables me to provide customized dietary advice to patients at Maha Clinic and, with the help of Dr. Perko, create personalized meal plans for them, as well as educate them about the benefits of a plant-based diet. I also educate individuals about the proper balance of nutrients, plant-based sources of proteins and fats, and how to overcome potential challenges in transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle.

A plant-based diet emphasizes the consumption of whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds, while reducing or eliminating animal products and ultra-processed foods. This diet can provide a wide range of nutrients, including essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, which support overall health and well-being.

I believe that a plant-based way of eating is the best choice for maintaining long-term health and vitality, as it is often more sustainable and environmentally friendly compared to a diet rich in animal products.

Health is our greatest wealth, and we can take care of it by improving our dietary habits, engaging in regular physical activity, and minimizing stress as much as possible.

Anže Zupančič, dipl. zn.
Graduate Medical Practitioner

I am a very curious person, so I love to explore and learn.
I try to avoid the comfort zone, I am open to new experiences and gaining new skills.
For some time I was abroad, in Germany and France, which was an exciting experience for me. I had the opportunity to discover new cultures, languages, I met a lot of people. I can say that I have grown personally.

For me it is very important and it means a lot to me if I am in an environment with pleasant, positive, and also ambitious people.
In this way, you already feel like a team member.

When you are part of a group where everyone supports each other, shares knowledge, trusts and supports each other, and at the same time strives for common goals, you feel like an important member of the community. This allows you collaboration, motivation, and encouragement to achieve the best results. For success and satisfaction in the work environment, it is important to have people around you who share the same values and vision and strive for the success of the team.

I can say that at the MAHA center, it’s about real teamwork, where we support each other and at the same time motivate each other to achieve our goals. Together we overcome challenges, achieve goals and top achievements, all of which contribute to a sense of fulfillment and realization of dreams at the workplace.

I am glad to be a member of the exceptional MAHA Clinic team.

Anja Vesle

The desire to help others has been with me ever since I can remember. Even as a little girl, I enjoyed helping wherever I could, so it came as no surprise when I decided to enroll in healthcare school.

After successfully completing my education, my first work experiences involved working in the emergency medical services and later in occupational medicine.

However, because I enjoy new challenges, have a desire for continuous learning, and have a passion for beautiful and, above all, healthy smiles, my path eventually led me to oral medicine.

The warm reception, well-organized and pleasant work environment, great team, and collaborative work with dental experts convinced me immediately that this was the job I wanted to pursue.

Nace Novak
Medical technician

From a young age, I have had a strong sense of empathy towards others. I always enjoy helping people and uplifting them with my energy. I have dedicated a significant part of my life to dance and music. I am a freestyle dancer and educator, which means I engage in movement improvisation. Over the years, I have had many performances and workshops abroad. In the past three years, I have been regularly teaching people in Slovenia and abroad, ranging from children and their parents to beginners and serious dancers. It brings me joy to work with people and see their smiling, satisfied faces.

In 2018, I successfully completed my education as a healthcare technician. During my studies, I interacted with individuals facing various health challenges. Their stories and conditions have greatly opened my eyes to the importance of maintaining a healthy body on both physical and mental levels.

My goal is to improve and progress with each passing day. I strive to become a better version of myself every day, and Oral Medicine allows me to do just that. At Maha Clinic, I face challenging situations on a daily basis, and I tackle them with enthusiasm because the end result is a satisfied, smiling individual. It is an honor for me to work alongside exceptional therapists and pleasant colleagues who motivate and enhance me every day.

Bernarda Novak

I felt the joy of working with people very early, about ten years ago, when I got my first student job. After completing my education in economics, and later in cosmetics, I finally took the right path. A huge desire to work in dentistry was awakened in me.
I will never forget the day I first entered the premises of the Maha Clinic. The whole atmosphere, energy and the first reception from the collective took me over and enchanted me. Deep inside, I secretly hoped that I would start writing a new chapter of my life story at the Maha clinic. I have always wanted to work in an orderly and pleasant environment where positive energy and patient satisfaction reign. I like the combination of manual skills, administration and teamwork. I am aware that the assistant is the first contact in communication with patients and that therefore the desire to work with people is very important in such a position. It shows itself with a kind word, a smile and a warm welcome. I am finally doing work that I enjoy, I am learning every day and encountering new challenges. I meet new people every day, and caring for their well-being and mutual trust is what makes me happy. I am proud to be part of a team of experts in the field of dentistry, from whom I draw invaluable knowledge, which is a great journey for my life.

Irnes Čajić

I discovered my passion for working with people at a very young age, about ten years ago, when I got my first student job. After completing my education in economics and later in cosmetology, I finally found my true calling. A strong desire to work in dentistry awakened within me.

I will never forget the day I first stepped into the premises of Maha Clinic. The entire ambiance, energy, and the warm welcome from the team overwhelmed and enchanted me. Deep inside, I secretly hoped that Maha Clinic would be the place where I could start a new chapter in my life. I have always wanted to work in a well-organized and pleasant environment, where positive energy and patient satisfaction prevail. I appreciate the combination of manual skills, administration, and teamwork. I am aware that as an assistant, I am the first point of contact with patients, and therefore, the desire to work with people is crucial in such a position. It manifests through kind words, a smile, and a warm reception.

Finally, I am doing work that I enjoy, learning and facing new challenges every day. I get to meet new people on a daily basis, and caring for their well-being while establishing mutual trust is what brings me happiness. I am proud to be part of a team of dental professionals from whom I draw invaluable knowledge, which serves as an excellent foundation for my life.

Nataša Velše

Since childhood, books have been my great companions, which is why I would like to paraphrase our great poet Tone Pavček, who said that the world is beautiful if you give something to someone and if you treat people with kindness. Unconsciously, Pavček’s words have accompanied me since my early days when I was happiest in the company of smiling people. It has always been a great satisfaction for me to bring a smile to people’s faces, to help them, and to make the world a better place.

All of this led me to the decision to enroll in the Secondary Health School in Novo Mesto. New knowledge and my first work experiences confirmed that I made the right choice. After completing high school, I found employment at the Nursing Home for the Elderly in Novo Mesto, where I worked for several years. I am grateful for those years as they provided me with a wealth of knowledge in the field of healthcare and enriched me personally. Genuine human relationships, kind words, and teamwork are essential for us as human beings. When we nurture these foundations with professionalism, we can succeed as employees.

And my “dental journey”? Taking care of a healthy smile is essential for everyone. I am almost obsessed with it myself, and when I recently underwent orthodontic treatment as a patient, the world of dentistry attracted me even more. An opportunity to work at Maha Clinic presented itself to me. I had the chance to meet Dr. Simona Bele, as I was her patient years ago, where she demonstrated her professionalism and empathy. I immediately seized the opportunity and became part of the Maha Clinic team as a dental assistant.

I am grateful to be part of such a professional team that allows me to enhance my knowledge while maintaining personal contact with patients. Lifelong learning is inherent to human beings, and I am already looking forward to new knowledge and experiences at Maha Clinic.

Rok Papež

I come from Bela krajina, more precisely from Črnomelj. Since I was a child, I have had a technical mindset and have been a lover of sunsets and beautiful mountains.

After completing primary school, I wanted to work with people, so I continued my education in Novo mesto, where I graduated from secondary health school in 2017 and obtained the title of healthcare technician. In the desire for further education and a more technical profession, I enrolled in the Faculty of Health Sciences, specializing in laboratory dental prosthetics, and became fascinated with the work performed by prosthetists.

In 2021, I joined Maha Clinic as a student and immediately became enthusiastic about their vision and way of working. After 2 years of working as a student, I also became employed, and now we form a team that anyone would undoubtedly desire to be a part of.

Aleksandra Saša Habat

Since I was young, I have always enjoyed working with people, so after completing my education, I got a job at Brmik Airport. As a passenger service agent, I have been working there for the past 26 years. Although I enjoyed my work, after the birth of my youngest child, I wanted a schedule that would allow me more time with my family. In search of new opportunities, I found it at Maha Clinic. I was thrilled when I learned that I was offered a chance for a fresh start. I gathered my courage and said goodbye to the airport, embarking on new challenges.

At Maha Clinic, I look forward to each new working day spent among friendly and professional colleagues. I am delighted that I still get to work with people and that there is always something happening on the job. I gladly utilize all the skills I have acquired over the years at the airport in my current work.

I am immensely happy to finally have a regular work schedule, weekends, and holidays off, and no longer have to wake up in the middle of the night. Now I have more time for myself and for my son, as I can actively participate in his upbringing.

Sanela Skenderović

The desire to work in healthcare has accompanied me since childhood, so enrolling in a Medical High School was expected. Empathy and the need to help others played a crucial role in my choice and later successful completion of the Occupational Therapy program at the Faculty of Health Sciences. Engaging in various student jobs sparked in me the desire for further education, leading to the successful completion of an economics school.

After several years of working in different healthcare fields, I yearned for new challenges and opportunities to gain additional knowledge. That’s when I saw the opportunity at Maha Clinic. The work I do allows me to combine and apply the knowledge I have gained throughout my education, and it presents me with new challenges every day. The team spirit, professionalism, dynamism, personal growth, and direct interaction with patients are what make me look forward to going to work every day.

It was the year 1987 when I came into the world. I grew up in Ljubljana as an only child and attended primary and secondary school there. For my studies, I chose the Faculty of Organizational Sciences. During my time at university, I took on various student jobs, which provided me with a wealth of experience, particularly in working with people.

I joined Maha Clinic in 2021, and because I believe that everything happens for a reason, I also believe that I found myself in the story of Maha Clinic for a purpose. Now I realize that my choice of studies also had a reason, as in the work I do, I can combine organization and working with people. The field of dentistry was relatively unknown to me, but I was guided by the desire for new knowledge and challenges. Upon arriving at the clinic, I quickly began to feel like part of the team. The mutual connection and teamwork make me look forward to coming to work every day, and it serves as motivation for doing a good job.

I come from the public sector job, and I enjoy being in contact with people. Since childhood, I’ve had a fear of dentists, and I never thought that my workday would be at such a clinic.
My colleagues are like a big family; we help each other and operate as a team. That’s the advantage of my employment; we’re a smaller team, which allows us to be more connected.

Perhaps here is where I have the opportunity to help people, whether it’s children or the elderly, overcome their (unnecessary) fear of the dentist.
