Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
I have probably seen Janel a bunch of times at courses, but I only met her personally last year at Battle of the Speakers when she gave me a big matriarchal hug after my lecture.
When you talk to people like Stefan Coetzee and Shanne Marree you would get same sense from them. Janel is an excellent mentor, she is a great business leader, manager and clinician, but most of all I would like to give her the title as the Mother of Dentistry.
Below is her CV as from her website
After qualifying from the University of Stellenbosch in 1991, I worked in Johannesburg. I returned to Cape Town in 1992 and established Longbeach Dental. Apart from being a family dentist I have a particular interest in cosmetic and advanced restorative dentistry as well as dentures fixed on implants and full dental rehabilitations.
