Dr. Juste Karvelyte

Pro Media Mag : First of all please tell us about the start of your professional career.
Dr. Juste Karvelyte : I always knew I was meant to be a dentist. So my very first job after high school when I moved to Load Angeles from Lithuania was dental assistant. And for the next 10 years I was working full time in the dental field either as assistant, dental office manager, dental implant placement trainer and lastly as dental CAD/CAM specialist I kept going to school and finished my bachelors degree and biology and health care management followed by post baccalaureate training in medical sciences and lastly receiving my doctorate degree from University of Health Sciences.

Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into dentistry?
Dr. Juste Karvelyte : I wanted to be a dentist since I was 6. Something about the art of building the tooth attracted me. And I always played dentist not the doctor with my dolls. Since then it has been stuck in my head that this is what I will do and I have never doubted or questioned. I consider myself very lucky of finding my true calling so early.

Pro Media Mag : Tell us a little about some of your key skills?
Dr. Juste Karvelyte : Because if my extensive background in dental field before entering grad school I always was aware of how fast the industry changes and how important it is to not become stagnant. I always invest in great materials and latest technologies because it makes patient experience so much more comfortable and my work had more predictable outcomes. My past working experience helped me in ways that I am skillful in Dentures, 3D CAD/CAM milling crowns and veneers in office same day as well as implant surgery.
