Jana has been working as one of our experienced dental hygienist’s in our practice since 2011. She brings with her the ability to clean teeth while telling you a story or two. When Jana isn’t in the office you can find her teaching a spinning class or running – because she loves chocolate – or chauffeuring one of her 3 children around Ithaca. Jana is a dedicated professional who will gently yet thoroughly provide your dental cleaning, counsel you about nutrition, oral hygiene and the role that dental fluoride plays in a healthy dentition.


Lorrie moved to Ithaca in 1971 with her parents and 4 siblings, and says that becoming a Hygienist is one of the best decisions she’s ever made. Lorrie has been practicing as a Hygienist for 35 years – 25 of those years in our office. Lorrie is married with 2 sons and in her spare time she enjoys running and biking.


Margie started off in the dental field as a Dental Assistant and has worked in the field for the last 33 years. She moved to Ithaca with her daughter in 2008 from New Jersey and keeps herself busy with her family and dogs. Margie joined the team in 2010 and now works in the front office, assisting with patient billing and records. She is committed to efficiently helping you maximize your dental insurance benefits as well as answering any questions you may have.


Kristen has been with Dr. Zobel since May of 2017 but has been a dental assistant for the last 16 years. She resides in Groton with her husband and 2 children Dylan and Kadyn and their dog and cat.  She enjoys playing golf, working out and most of all spending time with her family and friends.


Skilled, professional, courteous

This group of professionals don’t leave me in the waiting room for long periods of time. They get me in on time, do very thorough work and answer any questions I have. They show me my x-rays and explain any points of concern. I appreciate their congeniality and the attention to detail from everyone there.
