Zanesville Team



Hi, I’m Jan Smith and I started my employment with this practice in 1985. I am a graduate of Crooksville High School. I’ve always been interested in the dental field and decided to attend Columbus Paraprofessional Institute to recieve my dental assisting training. I then completed the national exam and recieved my certification.

Furthering my education, I attended the Ohio State University’s Expanded Functions Program and successfully passed the state examination. This enables me to place permanent restorations.

In 1985, I married Dean Smith. Dean is a graduate of Maysville High Scool and Ohio University. He teaches technology at East Muskingum Scools.

I find it truly a pleasure and honor to help our patients with their dental care. Outside of dentistry, I enjoy my family, my home, vacationing in Las Vegas, and rock-n-roll.
