Janet was born in Charleston, West Virginia. She is one of four siblings. She says she was blessed with parents who had an excellent work ethic and a great sense of humor. Her parents worked them like crazy and then laughed about it! But mainly, they taught her that "Character is who you are when no one is watching." That example has served her well in her life and has guided her in striving for excellence.
Janet received her dental hygiene degree from West Liberty University. She is a licensed, certified, registered dental hygienist in both Florida and West Virginia.
She moved to Saint Augustine, Florida, in 1986, where she worked for a local general dentist and has been working for a Dental Specialist in North Florida since 2015. She enjoys working with the patients, and she likes the family atmosphere shared with the other team members.
Janet enjoys traveling, scuba diving, drawing, computer graphics, and creating and editing videos. She recently fulfilled a personal goal of writing and illustrating a children's book about the tooth fairy, "So, Where Do All the Baby Teeth Go?"
Brooke is originally from St. Augustine, FL, where she was born and raised, and she is a registered dental hygienist! When she is not at work, she loves to be with her family out on the water, either fishing or going to the beach! She considers working at DSNF to be special for her, and she is happy with her work family, which shares the same core values, which show not only in patient care but in everyday life! She believes all of her colleagues and herself strive to be the best versions of themselves for their community and patients!
Kimberly was born and raised in Florida and moved to Palm Coast at the age of 15, and that's where she met her fiancé, Ricky. She has two amazing kids, Sofia and Richard. She is like any typical soccer mom and enjoys going to theme parks and cruises and spending quality time with her family during her free time. She graduated from Daytona State College to pursue her dream job of becoming a Dental Hygienist. Prior to that, she spent almost 10 years as a dental assistant. She has always wanted to stay in the dental field because she thinks this is where she belongs. One of her favorite things about working in the dental field is making people feel better about themselves. While working, she always strives to make my patients feel comfortable and happy. One of the many things she loves about working at DSNF is that she feels her team is so patient care-focused, and they work together as a team to make sure our patients get the best care possible when they are with us.
