Markéta Janovská, MDDr. (D.M.D. analogue)
Department of Oral Medicine
Institute of Dental Medicine
General Medicine and First Faculty of Medicine, Prague

I work as an oral medicine specialist at the Institute of Dental Medicine, Department of Oral Medicine, Prague, Czech Republic. I also teach oral medicine to medical students at Charles University and provide oral medicine lectures for the company, Profimed s.r.o.

I am always excited to collaborate with other medical specialists such as nephrologists, dermatologists, etc. to provide our patients with the best treatment. The most interesting for me is the deep association between general medicine and oral medicine. To be a part of such a unique system is my greatest honor.

I am a member of the American Academy of Oral Medicine and the European Association of Oral Medicine. In 2018, I was certified as a Diplomat in Oral Medicine by the European Association of Oral Medicine (EAOM), and this year, Mayo Clinic certified me as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist.

I co-authored an article titled “Oral lichen planus –current point of view” in 2019, and a book chapter titled “Nutrition and oral medicine,” which I also co-authored, is currently in press.

In the future, I hope to be able to represent my country as one with brilliant oral medicine specialists, and I am currently working on multiple articles on topics related to oral medicine. I am most grateful for the opportunity to do what I really love, and I hope to develop my professional skills and experiences in the best manner.
