Janell comes to our office with many years of dental experience. She began as a dental assistant and gradually advanced into the areas of front-desk, scheduling coordinator, insurance benefits coordinator and office manager. She spent years in customer service with two of the big dental supply companies, where she ordered all dental equipment needed for a dental office to operate - from the soap dispensers to the x-ray units, dental chairs and even computer equipment.
She enjoys spending her free time cooking, reading, doing crafts, fly fishing, skiing and riding her bike. She enjoys travel and hopes that the future will bring more of that.
She was born and raised in Albuquerque and has two daughters - Melissa and Katie - and a cat named Bella
