Janice Cartwright Dental Hygienist
Dental Hygienist Janice Cartwright has had a love for the dental field since she was a junior in high school. While working part time as a secretary at a local dentist’s office, she became interested in pursuing a career on the clinical side of the dental world, and went on to receive certifications in Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene before joining the staff at Lexington Periodontal Group in 1993.
Janice has taken pride in every role she’s had during her long dental career, but her favorite job of all is helping to empower her patients to prioritize their oral health and act as patients’ personal advocate during treatment. She understands how important dental education and good habit formation are toward a healthy mouth, and is always eager to pass her knowledge along! Janice also feels lucky to work with great teams, and values the close relationships she has formed with her wonderful dentists, assistants, staff, and patients.
Born and raised on Massachusetts’ North Shore, Janice currently lives in Ayer, MA, where she fills her days reading, taking in the sights of New England, spending time with friends, or catching up with her two adult children, Michael and Erin.
