“Helping people through dental care and education is so rewarding because of the positive impact and benefit to their overall health. Supporting a person’s growth in knowledge about improving their oral health and providing care to accomplish this not only benefits them, but it also provides me with a gratifying accomplishment of knowing that I made a positive difference in another’s life.” - “A healthy mouth, a healthy body.”

JoAnn was raised in Baraboo, Wisconsin, home of the Ringling Circus and beautiful Devils Lake. Her time in the Northwoods is filled with wonderful memories as she has been enjoying this charming area since she was a small child. She adds that it’s now a special time in her life because her move to the area allows her to be closer to her mother. Blessed with 3 children and 4 lovely granddaughters, she enjoys hiking, reading, painting, home projects and spending time with family and friends.

JoAnn takes great pride in providing the highest quality prevention, educational and therapeutic services to the patients in her care. She also enjoys February “Children’s Dental Health” month and giving presentations to children to help establish lifelong good oral hygiene habits. She’s looking forward to continuing that service to the Northwoods community and her personal goal is to bring better care and awareness to residents living in nursing homes.

JoAnn is looking forward to finishing her career at LVD Health Center and helping with the needed care of the people living in this area. She believes that all people deserve the best care possible, and she’s happy to play a part in providing that.
