Hi, I’m Jan Smith. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been with this practice since 1985. I consider them my second family. My title is Expanded Functions Dental Assistant, and I love it!
My first family is my husband, Dean, also since 1985. Dean is a technology teacher with East Muskingum Schools. When we aren’t working we love watching our sports. We are big Reds fans and long-time Buckeyes!!



Hello, I’m Karen. I’ve been a dental assistant here in Zanesville since 1987, and have worked with Dr. Fuhriman (and later Zanesville Dental) since 2006. My husband, Larry and I have two grown daughters, Kayley and Payton.
In our free time, we enjoy spending time with our family. We love to watch Reds baseball and we are season ticket holders of the Columbus Blue Jackets.



I started working in the dental field in 1993 and earned my EFDA (Expanded Function Dental Assistant) License in 2003, and my Coronal Polishing License in 2004 at The Ohio State University. Since joining Zanesville Dental in 2012, I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the Zanesville Dental team. I love getting to know my patients on a personal level and seeing their smiling faces on return visits.
I am happily married to my husband Eric. Together we have a daughter Kirsten, 2 dogs Boone and Piper, and a Quarter Horse Riley. Outside the office I enjoy camping, running, watching our daughter show horses, and cheering on the Columbus Blue Jackets.



My name is Lindsay Abrams and I started my dental career as an assistant here at Zanesville Dental in 2005. I attended The Ohio State University to become an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant in 2010. My husband Troy and I have a son, Myles. We enjoy being active with our North Terrace church family, rooting for the Buckeyes, Browns, and Reds. We also really enjoy using our smoker several times a week and can make some pretty awesome ribs, pulled pork, and brisket! I love working at Zanesville Dental and consider my coworkers family.
