JoanE has been working in dental care for over 35 years now, with many of them spent right here at Dr. Hoop’s dental office. There’s a lot to love about her job, especially getting to watch a patient’s transformation over time and seeing their face just light up with joy at the end result! It’s also wonderful that the people she works with don’t feel like just other employees – they’re family!
