Janet – Dental Hygienist
“My favorite aspect of my job is educating my patients on ways to achieve optimal oral health and how oral health plays a role in their overall systemic health. In other words, I enjoy helping my patients lead healthier, happier lives!”
Born and raised in California, Janet moved to Georgia in 1999 to pursue her career goal of becoming a dental hygienist. Janet graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Medical College of Georgia in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene, but she brings over 25 years of dental experience and knowledge to ProEsthetic Dentistry.
Upon graduating from the Medical College, Dr. Maha and Janet met at a world-renowned multi-specialty practice where they established an eight-year working relationship. Even though they parted ways professionally in 2010, the friendship continued through the years. In 2012, Janet and Dr. Maha would be reunited again, only this time at Dr. Maha’s own private practice, ProEsthetic Dentistry! Janet enjoys personalizing quality care for her dental hygiene patients based on each individual’s needs and assisting them in achieving their oral health goals.

Lisa – Dental Assistant
Raised in a small town in northern Pennsylvania, I pursued a career in dental assisting. After becoming a Certified Dental Assistant in 1999, I continued on expanding my knowledge in the Dental Hygiene field. After graduating from the Dental hygiene program in 2001, I migrated to the south Florida area and then relocated to the Atlanta area in 2010.
At this time, I was introduced to an incredible office where I met Dr. Maha. We worked hand and hand and eventually became her assistant. After assisting for many years, I took some time to branch out and start my own dental staffing company, Distinct Dental Staffing. Here, I get to enjoy a little of everything. Staffing offices with great employees has been very rewarding and has lead me back to Dr. Maha in 2015.
Working so well together and giving patients our utmost care has been rewarding in itself. Our teamwork shown from all the staff makes each day a great day. The knowledge, kindness and excellent skills by Dr. Maha enables us to provide the best dental care possible.
