Meet the Staff

Jan.jpgJan Miller  Dental Hygienist

Jan is a very familiar face, as she has been with the practice for over 30 years.  Beloved by her patients, she enjoys the many relationships she has created during her career.  She also enjoys improving their lives through proper oral care. 

Hiking is passion for Jan and she is training to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.  In connection with this challenge, she is sponsoring a young boy from Kenya and helping him climb out of poverty through education over the next 10-12 years.  Jan is funding the trip and the boys education herself and has been working hard to prepare physically and financially for this adventure. 


Karla.pngKarla Elkins  Dental Hygienist

Karla is in the office on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. She has 20 years of experience as a hygienist and is skilled at what she does.

 Karla grew up along the coast in Salinas, California. She loved the beaches and everything unique to the Monterey area. Eventually she ended up in the Bay Area and went to Dental Hygiene school in Hayward, California, graduating in 1996.

Karla and her husband have been together for twenty three years and live in Truckee. They spend their weekends with their two children enjoying the mountains and outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, and being at the lake.

She finds it fun working at the lake, meeting new people, and discovering new things to do.
