Orthodontic Practice Manager

“After working in the orthodontic field for 42 years, I have found Dr. Kumar to be the most intelligent and well-educated. I came out of retirement to work for and with him and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have done that for any of the others that passed my way.” – Janice

Janice is most likely the friendly face to greet you when you come to the office or the helpful voice that assists you on the phone. She provides a welcoming and personalized service to ensure you are relaxed and confident about placing your orthodontic care in our hands. With our office since 1993, Janice’s career in the administrative aspects of dentistry has spanned over 42 years. She is adept at creating relationships between our office, referring dentists, parents, and patients in order to achieve the very best results. When out of the office, Janice decompresses by traveling. She also enjoys watching the Detroit Tigers, MSU football, and professional tennis.
