Dr Jana Nikolovski
Dr Jana Nikolovski is originally from Wollongong and moved to Adelaide to study dentistry in 2005. She completed her Bachelor of Dental Surgery at the University of Adelaide and graduated in 2009. Since then she has worked in private and rural practices in both South Australia and New South Wales. In 2014 she completed her Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.
Jana has particular interests in endodontics and paediatric dentistry, as well as helping educate pregnant women in oral health practices before, during and after their pregnancy. She feels this is an area where there is a consistent lack information and support.
Outside of dentistry, Jana loves to travel. She took a little break from her dental career to travel the world for 14 months in 2014-2015. She spent a year travelling around South America and learning Spanish during this time. When she returned from her travels, Jana began a side business in handmade jewellery and is continually surprised by the many similarities between dentistry and jewellery making!
