Hi! My name is Jana. In 1981, I began the dental assisting program at Calhoun Community College. Within a few months I began assisting part time while I completed my associate degree. In 1984, I attended the Hygiene Preceptorship program at UAB and received my hygiene license. In 2008, I completed my bachelor’s degree at Athens State University.

During my dental career I have been a consultant, a hygienist, an assistant, and worked in every position in the front office arena. I taught a dental assisting class at Calhoun and in 2014 I began the Clinical Director and Instructor for Dr. Teichmiller’s Assist to Succeed Dental Assisting program.

My husband and I have been married since 1984 and we reside in Hartselle. We have two sons that are married and we have four grandchildren.


Hi! I’m Rose. My dental career started in 1983. I studied dental assisting at the Sterling Heights Career Prep Center in Michigan and then worked as an assistant until 1990. After I moved to Alabama, I took six months off to focus on being a mom before I found my way back to assisting. In 1993, I received my Dental Hygienist license from UAB. I love helping my patients maintain good oral and beautiful smiles. In Feb 2016, I decided I needed a new beginning in my career and also wanted to be closer to my daughter and granddaughter. I was lucky enough to find Dr. T and join her wonderful staff in a welcoming office where I can continue to better my career.


Hi! I’m Pam. I was born in Chicago, IL, but grew up in Athens, AL, and have lived most of my life there. I graduated from Athens High School and attended Birmingham-Southern College. When I met my husband, he was enlisted in the Army. We spent three fun years in Germany before returning to Athens and starting our family. We have two wonderful children, a son and a daughter, and three grandsons who are the light of our lives. I have worked many different jobs during my work career, including working for the Army, working in a funeral home, selling Tupperware, and managing a 24-hour interstate gas station/convenience store/Subway Sandwich Shop. I started working in dentistry by chance in 1996 when I answered an ad for a Receptionist and ended up working for the same dentist for 16 years until he decided to retire. I have been working for Dr. Teichmiller since 2013. My favorite pastimes are spending time with my family, cooking, and reading.


Hi! I’m Carley. I was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama. My interest in dentistry came from my uncle, who is a dentist in Birmingham. After I started my dental career in 2014, I completed the Assist to Succeed Program offered by Dr. Teichmiller. In addition to my full-time role as a dental assistant, I also now help, facilitate, and teach the Assist to Succeed Program on Saturdays. I am married to my husband, Kyle, who has one daughter, Riley. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, boating on the river, and traveling.


Hi! I’m Lacey. I’m the New Patient Coordinator for Dr. Teichmiller. I’ve worked in the medical community since 2013 but am new to the Dental world. I’m passionate about patient care and hope to help make your experience as enjoyable as possible! I’m originally from the Athens area and moved back from Mobile, Alabama in July 2017. I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my two rescue pups. I also enjoy travel, trying new foods and anything on the water.


Hi! I’m Ashley. I recently found my passion for dentistry when I began Dr. Teichmiller’s Dental Assisting program, Assist To Succeed.
