DENTISTS FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION
Dentist Mariana Bucurescu opens a private dental practice in Bucharest, in 1943. Throughout her career as a dentist, Dr Bucurescu makes the transition from a private enterprise to the public practices of the communist regime, keeping the same professional attitude. She spends an important part of her career at the Eforie Dental Methodology Centre in Bucharest, where she trains future dentists.
With a passion for medicine and under the careful guidance of Mariana Bucurescu, her niece, Dr. Minodora Lupascu carries on the tradition. As a young student at the University of Dentistry, she demonstrates her outstanding abilities by graduating, twice, two years in one. Therefore, completing her studies two years earlier, the country valedictorian becomes a dentist in 1959.
