Dr. Janna strives to make her patients’ visits comfortable, fun, and non-judgmental. She truly enjoys caring for her patients and helping them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Janna spending time with her husband, Brad, walking her dogs (Suma and Lulu), doing house projects and rearranging furniture/decor, reading, being active outside, watching MN Sports, cooking, going to the cabin, and coaching weightlifting and CrossFit.

Rebeca became a licensed dental hygienist in 2014 after graduating from Herzing University. She studied holistic approaches to oral care and is knowledgeable regarding the effect it poses clinically.

In her time away from White Smiles Rebeca can be found spending time with her Fiance and Pomeranian right here in the St. Michael community where she was born and raised. She frequents local gyms and parks, but also appreciates her down time with a quality book or the newest “binge-worthy” Netflix series.
