Meet the Team
Janelle Rabang Lead Dental Assistant Janelle was born in Hilo, Hawaii and moved to Oregon at a young age with her family. She received her dental assisting certificate at Concorde Career College in Portland, OR. Since 2012 she has been working as a dental assistant in a dental office for family dentistry. At this office, Janelle found that working with kids was the most fun part of her job. She feels that working with children is so rewarding because we have the chance to teach the kids how to have good oral hygiene care starting at a young age, and because of the silly things that kids say.
When she's not at work Janelle loves spending time with her family and friends. She enjoys being outdoors, traveling to new places, meeting new people, hiking, swimming, cooking, shopping, going to concerts, and adventuring around Portland with her friends.
Jacqueline Crone Dental Assistant Jacqueline was born in Vancouver, WA. She has been dental assistant since 2011 studied at Cascadia Dental Career Institute. She has worked with Dr. Patty since 2012 and was excited to be part of her new office in 2014. Jacqueline is engaged to the love of her life, Ethan, and together they have a cat named Karma who loves to eat vanilla yogurt. When she isn't spending time with family and friends, Jacqueline loves to get outdoors and she is learning to ride a quad. Her mom lives in Palm Springs and Jacqueline jumps at the opportunity to fly down and get some sun during the long Pacific Northwest winters! In her down time, Jacqueline likes to do crafts and refurbish old furniture pieces and make them into master pieces.
Cristina Guymon Dental Assistant Cristina was born and raised in Portland OR. She went to Concorde Career College and has been working as a general assistant since 2013. She enjoyed working with adults but always wanted to focus on working with children. She was excited when the opportunity came up to join Portland Children’s Dentistry in January of 2016.
At home she has a loving fiance' and two children, Hailey and Ava. When she is not spending her day playing with your children here at the office, she enjoys doing crafts and taking her children all over to do fun Portland activities, such as the zoo, OMSI, and Playdate PDX. Cristina is half German and loves to eat/make German dishes.
Hannah Smith Dental Assistant Hannah has been in the dental field since 2006 and has been working in pediatric dentistry since 2009. She brings an excitement and enthusiasm that children love. She has always enjoyed going to the dentist and wants to share that same experience with the families who come to Portland Children's Dentistry.
Outside of the office Hannah loves a variety of adventures. You may see her dragon boat racing on the Willamette, bouldering, freediving, and sailing the Puget Sound with her five year old son. She also has been known to dress as Xena for Comic Con and throw viking-themed birthday parties for herself.
Lisa Holca Dental Assistant Lisa completed her dental assistant degree in 2015 and has worked in pediatric dentistry since. She got married in September of 2017 and moved from Seattle to Portland where her husband grew up. Between her 6 siblings and her husband's 7 siblings, they are busy every weekend with birthday parties, weddings, and baby showers! Lisa loves coming from a big family. Outside of the office she enjoys family time, baking, and road trips. She also spends her free time working on service projects through her church. Lisa's favorite part of her job (and secret talent) is coaxing a smile out of even the most nervous patient!
Dania Cook Front Office Dania was born in Sonora, Mexico but grew up in a large, blended family in Sacramento, CA. As the designated family babysitter and with two young sons of her own, Dania feels right at home surrounded by youngsters. Their sunny smiles and laughter easily make each day a special one!
When not in the office, Dania enjoys exploring the sights and cuisines of Portland alongside her husband, Jeremy, and sons, Carter and Eli. On less adventurous days, they love making family movies, listening to music and baking goodies.
Shannon Adams Front Office Shannon was born up the road in Federal Way, Washington. She has four children who have been known to surprise her by bringing home pregnant guinea pigs bought from neighborhood friends. Her family loves to get outside and get dirty. Some of their favorite activities include hiking, riding quads, crabbing, and fishing. Shannon recently moved to Vancouver where her family is renovating their new house. Don't be surprised if her hands are covered by paint.
