Jan - Office ManagerJan

Office Manager

My career in the field of dentistry began in 1971 and I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Isaacson in 2000 as his office manager. I enjoy the daily interactions I have with our patients, their families, and the rest of our staff. Dr. Isaacson is a perfectionist when it comes to the care he provides. Dr Dau joined our office and it did not take any time at all to see how he has the same enthusiasm for dentistry as Dr Isaacson. It is very fulfilling to work in an office that I am proud to recommend to everyone I meet. I have one grown daughter and two “grand doggers”. In my free time, I enjoy fishing, traveling, reading, gardening, and a good laugh.

It is a real pleasure to witness our patients’ transformations as they receive the dental care they need. Dr. Isaacson does not only fix teeth, he changes lives as well. I am very proud to be a part of that process. I am excited about Dr. Dau joining our dental team. He brings great new technologies to our patients so they continue to receive the best dental care.

I began my career as a dental hygienist in 2008 after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and have loved every minute of it! My passion has always been in healthcare and making a positive impact in others’ lives has been incredibly fulfilling I take pride in making sure all my patients are comfortable, are treated with the utmost respect, and get the best care possible at each visit.

I live close by the clinic, so you’re likely to see me walking around the neighborhood with my golden doodle, my son, and my husband. In my free time I enjoy biking, running, walking (anything to be outside!), cooking, traveling and most of all…spending time with my family!

I look forward to meeting you and am excited to play a role in your unique smile and overall dental health.
