Personal Information

I started studying dentistry at BogomoletsNational Medical University in 2005 and passed through 5 years of amazing theoretical and practical education. These 5 years tied my life not only with my favorite specialty and essential theoretical knowledge but also with scientific activities. I was the Board Member of the Society of Young Specialists and Scientists at the University and participated in increasing the influence of medical students on national and global science. For that, I was awarded “For the Development of Student Scientific Life” by the Kyiv city mayor in 2009. So, when I graduated and received a dental degree in 2010, I had a particular scientific background.  

The next 4 years of specialization aiming to reach a master’s degree in dentistry, and parallel clinical practice, helped me acquire the orthodontics specialization (2014) and master’s degree in dentistry (2016). From that time till the present my primary workplace hasn’t changed – I still provide private consulting, diagnostics, and treatment at Iris Dent Clinic, in Kyiv. 

My practice and education mustn’t be limited by the Ukrainian border. I got training at the Department of Post-graduate Studying in Orthodontics in Kings College of London (2016) and studied a 2-year Advanced Orthodontics International course in San Sebastian, Spain (2020-2022). It’s a great honor that since 2015 I’ve been an Ambassador from Ukraine at EPSOSduring 3 years.

I’ve launched plenty of projects such as Round Table for young Orthodontists , Give your Child a Smile (2018-2019).

Created YouTube channel Stoma Talk from 2021The aim is to increase the self-knowledge of young and adult patients to improve their quality of lifeprevent common dental diseases, discuss with related specialists the most popular questions on orthodontics and not only.
