Cissy is a homebody who loves to garden, work on crossword puzzles, and walk her dogs. She has managed Dr. Janosek’s practice since he started in 1983 and she enjoys coming to work and interacting with patients who often become her friends. She understands that people can be frustrated or even angry when they first call but she listens to them and reassures them that Dr. Janosek can help. She says patients often don’t know what they need but she especially likes the “wow factor” once they see their results. Cissy has three grown children and has been married to her husband since 1974.
Norma is a rare person who got excited to see the dentist when she was a little girl, so it was a natural fit for her to pursue a career in dentistry. She now has over 25 years’ experience as a dental assistant and started working with Dr. Janosek in 2005. She truly enjoys the people who come to our practice and finds the older patients particularly engaging. She said she has learned so much history just getting to know them, some who are 100 years old! She says, “I don’t ever dread coming to work and I’m happy when I get here.” Norma has a teenage daughter and is a movie enthusiast who sees as many films as she can.
Nicole was a high school history teacher who spent her summer breaks working at the front desk of Dr. Janosek’s office. She trained as a dental assistant and started full time in 2014. She is still teaching today though. “Dr. Janosek always tries to give people options and sometimes it can feel overwhelming. My job is to help the patient break it down and make it easily understandable.” Nicole also appreciates that Dr. Janosek loves what he does so much because that creates a culture where everyone comes in and enjoys their work. Between busy days with new challenges and raising two young children, Nicole finds her “Zen place” running at the Athletics’ Club.
Sue was a former patient of Dr. Janosek’s who admired his immaculate work and perfectionism. Back then, she dreamed of working for him and got her wish in 2016. With over two decades in the dental profession, she understands the needs of her patients. People want to maintain the dental work that Dr. Janosek has done and protect their investment and Sue is an integral part of that plan. She says that working with Dr. Janosek is like being part of a family. She has two grandkids that she spends a lot of time with and she enjoys being involved in her church and volunteering with the children’s ministry.
Initially, George wanted to be a dentist but with a background in jewelry making, he found himself drawn instead to the dental lab.

George looks forward to getting up and coming to work every day and has been part of our team since 2001. He says, “I love working for Dr. Janosek because he is thoughtful, considerate, and professional. He really cares about people.” George has three daughters and two grandkids. He volunteers as a deacon at his church and occasionally enjoys travel.
