Dr. Janean Lewis –

She grew up in Estes Park, Colorado near Rocky Mountain National Park, attended a private college in Lincoln, Nebraska, and was accepted to Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in California. Graduating in 1982 she worked at LLUSD until 1988 in various departments including restorative, children’s dentistry, dental hygiene, and oral diagnosis, radiology and pathology.

Jacoby –

I am a native Idahoan and was born and raised in Southeast Idaho. I graduated from Timberline High School in Boise before attending Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree for Dental Hygiene. After graduating in 2012 I moved back to Boise to start practicing clinical dental hygiene and have been working full time in private practice since then. From 2012-2016 I served on the Idaho Dental Hygienist Association’s Board of Directors as their Treasurer and met many other awesome hygienists from around the state. When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my family, taking advantage of all the outdoor activities Idaho has to offer as well as hanging out with my fur-kids Barkley, Ray, and Penny.

I have been working in the dental field since Dr. Hess and Dr. Moss hired me almost 23 years ago. When I’m not working, I love hanging out at home with my husband Jeff and our two dogs Marley and Aiden. I have three kids who I love almost more than my dogs (just kidding). I used to live in OC before moving back to Boise 3 years ago and could not be happier – I am thankful to call Boise my home.
