Jantel works by the philosophy that oral health is important for overall health and self-confidence. She says “our teeth are meant to last as long as we do!” She believes education for dental hygiene should start as early as age 1 and that clinicians and patients should work together to maintain that healthy smile.
Jantel came to the dental field because there is tremendous need for dental hygiene in public health. She has found her passion in connecting with patients and hopes to make a difference by providing oral health education and helping her patients prevent oral disease.
Jantel and her husband are looking forward to raising their three children in the San Luis Valley. In her free time, Jantel loves hiking, riding ATV’s, traveling, and spending time with her family.
