    Tanisha Smith

    Dental Assistant

    Tanisha loves to help patients! She has been a Dental Assistant for 3yrs and has worked for Jan P Fugal DDS since September of 2017. She is very organized and has a great ability to keep the dental appointment running smoothly. She has acquired new skills and confidence since working at our office and uses those to help in many ways. She truly cares about each patient's comfort. From gathering information to taking x-rays, to keeping the environment and tools clean, to holding your hand, if needed; she excels at it all.

    A graduate from Fort Edward High School in 2014, Tanisha continues on with her education taking several college courses. She feels that one of the most rewarding parts of being a Dental Assistant is the happiness and appreciation our patients give for the care provided for them. Tanisha enjoys having amazing coworkers and patients that make it a pleasure to be at the practice each day. Tanisha spends her free time with her daughter Selena and her fiancé Robert. Tanisha loves being with her family at the park, watching movies, and getting together with her friends.

Her clinical background includes Orthodontics for 9 yrs and in Oral Maxillofacial Surgical assisting for 9+ years.

    When Tammi is not working, she loves spending time with her family. Whether it’s on the back of her husband, David’s, motorcycle, playing on the swings with her grandchildren, or just sitting having coffee with her children; her family time is very important. Tammi has a passion for cooking and enjoys reading, dancing, singing, the outdoors, and once in awhile some “alone” time.

    Tabatha Fugal

    Office Manager

    Tabatha enjoys paying attention to the “details” as the Office Manager. She thoroughly enjoys developing relationships with the wonderful people who walk through our doors. Her life has been enriched by the friends she has made over the years. She enjoys working with our staff to make the dental experience a pleasure from start to finish.

    Tabatha grew up in Upstate NY. Her college years were spent in Idaho and Utah. She earned her Bachelors degree in Finance and then went on to get her Masters in Business Administration from Utah State University. She also had some side fun while there, earning a minor in Horse Production. While her husband was going to Dental School in Wisconsin, she learned valuable skills while managing a 70 unit apartment complex. Tabatha has enjoyed working with her husband since they purchased the practice in 2006. She helps wherever she is needed, dental assisting, reception, landscaper, or as janitor.

    Tabatha and her husband are the parents of 5 children. She stays very busy being mom, fulfilling her church responsibilities, and working. She loves exploring trails with her horse, competing in the occasional gymkhana, and just being outside. Bored is not in her vocabulary.
