Janell Cervantes

Registered Dental Hygienist

Janell joined our team in August of 2022 and I’d like to think she found her dental home. She certainly completes our ‘family’. As a dedicated clinician, Janell always gives 100% to our patients. Quality patient care is very important to her and being sure that patients receive the absolute best care while with her is one of her top priorities. She is passionate about dental hygiene and educating her patients in home care. Janell says the thing she likes best about her career is helping patients find their confidence through their smile and having a hand in that transformation. Janell graduated from Lone Star College, Kingwood, TX in 2013 and since then has worked in Chicago, Grand Rapids, MI an Houston, TX before returning to the Quad Cities.

Since returning, Janell, along with her husband, Aaron have been renovating their 1800’s farmhouse into their forever home. When she’s not busy giving the best care to our patients, she is busy spoiling her daughter, Rosalyn and raising barn kittens. She loves all things outdoors including hiking, kayaking, and picnics. When she gets a free minute to herself, Janell can be found listening to true crime murder mysteries and podcasts.
