Janet truly enjoys working at Springcrest Dental Associates. After working in retail for many years, she felt it was time for a change and Springcrest has proven to be the best change she could have made. Janet began working for Springcrest Dental in June 2004 and since that time has been able to earn her Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) certificate and her Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) license. Janet says, “We are lucky to have an amazing team at Springcrest Dental. I could not ask for a better group of people to work with. We are more than a team; we are a family that truly cares about one another! For many people, the dental office is not their favorite place to visit, so it is my goal to make it a better experience for patients whenever possible. It is very rewarding for me when patients are able to walk away from their appointments feeling good about their time spent with us.”
When not at work, Janet enjoys spending time with her husband, her sons, her grandson, and her friends. She also likes to travel and enjoys scrapbooking and other crafts.
Salyna is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) and has been working at Springcrest Dental since July 2015. She has earned two Associate’s Degrees from Lansing Community College – one in general studies (spring 2014) and one in dental hygiene (spring 2015). Salyna continued her studies through Siena Heights University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Studies with a minor in Healthcare Management.
Salyna chose this career path because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. She enjoys teaching her patients about their oral health so that they can make educated efforts to be the healthiest they can be…something that hits very close to home for Salyna. “The oral cancer screenings and the head and neck exams given by our team can save lives. This is something that saved the life of my husband. Thyroid cancer had spread to his lymph nodes and down his neck. Luckily, the lump was found early enough, and after two surgeries and radiation, he is now in remission. I look forward to meeting new patients and to building on the relationships that are already formed with our current patients. We are a family here, and we do everything possible to make you feel as though you are a part of that family.”
Salyna and her husband have four children and a dog. All of their children are, or were, actively involved in sports and band. Her son, who has graduated, was a wrestler and football player in high school and her daughter is in band, volleyball, and basketball. Her stepdaughter is in band and swimming and is attending college classes in culinary arts while completing high school and her stepson is in band and basketball and enjoys fishing. Hank, the family dog, is a black Lab and is very much a part of the family. He loves swimming in the lake, playing fetch, and chasing birds. Salyna and her family all enjoy spending time at their family cottage and sitting around the campfire.
