This early passion in dentistry encouraged me to pursue a dental education, whereas I received my Associate Dental Hygiene degree from Pierce College and my Bachelor of Dental Hygiene Science degree from Eastern Washington University. I thoroughly love my career as a dental hygienist! My patients become members of my dental family as I learn about their lives, families, careers and adventures. Since graduating, I am a proud member of both the Washington State Dental Hygienists' Association and the American Dental Hygienists' Association. I continually attend dental courses, both local and afar to ensure I offer my patients the most up to date information in oral health care management. In addition, I have the amazing opportunity to travel to Guatemala on dental mission trips with the WIND organization and bring dental resources to people in need. Also, I am a graduate of the Comprehensive Introductory Course to Orofacial Myotherapy. I am always interested to share my knowledge regarding developmental anatomy/physiology and the relationship to dental, speech, breathing, oral habits and the interaction of the orofacial complex from birth.

I have greatly enjoyed my career and position as a dental hygienist at Covington Family Dental since 1995, first for Dr. Ken Russell followed by Dr. Kyle Blair (Dr. Russell's nephew). In my personal time, I enjoy distance running, cycling, hiking along with gardening, travel and active adventures. I keep very busy with family time, which includes my husband, married children and grandchildren.

Hello! My name is Janel and I'm excited to learn about your dental needs and help you achieve your goals. I first encountered dentistry as an orthodontic lab assistant at age 16.

Later, while raising my children I was fortunate enough to work as an Instructional Assistant for children with special needs. This instilled my love for teaching and reinforced the compassion and understanding when helping individuals and their unique needs.

Dentistry has been a lifelong dream and I decided to become a hygienist to combine my life experience with my passion. I completed my Dental Hygiene degree from Pierce College in Ft. Steilacoom, Wa in 2015. Each year I attend continuing education courses and am a member of the national and local hygiene associations. This provides me opportunities to stay abreast of the highest standard of care for my patients. I love talking about teeth, gums, oral health, and each person's individual needs.

Outside of the office, I spend time with my husband, two kids and two crazy dogs. You can primarily find us in the great outdoors.

I was fortunate to have a wonderful family friend that was a dentist when I was a child who taught me how personally rewarding it is to help people to not only be comfortable, but enjoy their visit to the dentist. I'm able to do that here. We have a terrific team atmosphere. We all strive to give our best to each person we encounter. When I'm not here at the office I love spending time with my family. There's nothing like having the kids and grandkids over to the house for mealtime with myself and my husband. I also enjoy camping and the water, whether it is time on the lake in my husband's jet boat or splashing around in the beach waves. I am lucky enough to live here in the great Pacific Northwest where I can enjoy the outdoors. I look forward to seeing you here in the office!
