Dr. Jucan graduated from Dr. Petru Groza Agricultural Institute in Cluj-Napoca, Romania in 1997. She immigrated to Canada in 2001 where she worked as a veterinary technician until she got her North American accreditation.

She served as a lead doctor and Chief of Staff for several years while in Banfield employment.
Her interest and desire to learn more in the field of veterinary dentistry proved her a fitting candidate for the Residency and Training program with Arizona Veterinary Dental Specialists in May 2019. She was mentored in her journey by Drs. Kipp Wingo, then Curt Cofman and Lisa Fink. She completed her residency in May 2022. As a credentialed residency-trained veterinarian she continues to develop her skills in preparation for the AVDC board examination in 2023.
