My path to the profession of dentistry began fifteen years ago when I entered the medical school in Vilnius, majoring in nursing. After graduating from school, I started working as an assistant dentist where I realized that the work of a dentist is very interesting for me, and it is in this specialty that I would like to improve. I continued my studies at Kaunas Medical Academy.
When I started working as a dentist, I became interested in paediatric dentistry, especially in its preventive field. I began to delve into child psychology, taking an interest in cognitive and behavioural therapy, as well as the psychological aspects of dental anxiety. I successfully apply the acquired knowledge in practice, as well as to educate the parents of patients on the issues of children’s dental care. My goal is for the next generation of Lithuanian children to grow up without the fear of dentists and with healthy teeth!

How to prepare your child for a visit to the dentist?
How to prepare your child for a visit to the dentist? – Pediatric dentist Geda Mažeikienė shares her experience: “Children’s visits to the dentist are one of the most important steps in shaping and determining not only oral and dental health, but also individual approach to dental treatment. It is recommended that a visit to the dentist takes place even when no toothache is felt and the teeth look healthy.”
