Dr. Kristina Djukic believes that optimal dental care results from a good dentist-patient relationship, one that is centered around excellent communication. Her mission is to provide excellent care to her patients, focusing on prevention and encouraging a lifetime of healthy smiles. Dr. Djukic sees dentistry as a unique blend of education, research, medicine, art, and personal relationships. As such, she treats the whole person, not just teeth.
She attended the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she completed both her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and Doctorate in Dental Surgery. Dr. Djukic is a firm believer in life-long learning and knows that any professional must continue studying, learning, and growing, and she is doing exactly that by actively participating in ongoing continuing education. Dr. Djukic also serves as an adjunct professor of pre-clinical instruction at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine.
She maintains memberships with the following:
- Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)
- American Dental Association (ADA)
- Chicago Dental Society (CDS)
- Illinois Dental Society (ISDS)
- Serbian-American Medical and Dental Society (SAMDS)
While dentistry and service are Dr. Djukic’s passions, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, painting, cooking, and learning about different cultures and languages.
