My name is Jodie Alexander and I have been involved in the field of dentistry for over 15 years. I love meeting new patients and helping them become familiar with our office and staff! Continuing education is a key component for me, as a hygienist. I really enjoy learning about new techniques and health related issue that can benefit my patients.
I started my dental career assisting a dentist near my hometown of Pinckneyville, which is located in Southern Illinois. I first realized I wanted to pursue a career in the dental area after observing in a dental office in high school. While pursuing my studies in the field of hygiene at Lake Land College, I also worked as a dental assistant. I graduated with my Associate’s in Applied Science, Dental Hygiene in 2000. . I am also certified in CPR and administering local anesthetic.
After graduating from Lake Land College, I married the love of my life, Kasey. We have been married for 8years and are the proud parents of two children, Kael, 6 and Tatum, 4. When I got my position as a team member with Dr. Yount, I was working for a dentist in Effingham Illinois. I was very excited about my new position and moving to Mattoon from Neoga Illinois. I was very excited about this move because I only drive 2 miles to work not 30 miles!
In my time away from the office, I enjoy catching up with family and friends. I also like hard rock music, aerobics and travelling. I have traveled to Amsterdam, France, Ireland, England, Mexico, Jamaica and a few trips to Colorado for some snow skiing ( which I have not conquered, yet!)
It is exciting to be a part of such an advanced dental office where patients are our number one priority. I am looking forward to meeting and helping you with your dental needs. When you come to our office, you will receive a warm and comforting welcome to from all our staff!
