JoanE’s oral healthcare career spans over 35 years, with around half of them spent as a part of Dr. Hoop’s team. She thinks there’s plenty to love about her position today, including getting a front-row seat to each patient’s transformation over time. Seeing their faces light up with joy at the end result is so amazing! She also thinks it’s wonderful that the people she works alongside don’t just feel like other employees --- they’re truly family to her.
Away from the dental office, JoanE has a little pup named Petey and a cat named Tabby who take up a lot of her time. Her hobbies include taking Petey to the dog park, watching movies, cooking, and singing in her church’s choir.
