Dear Janessa,

Thank you for your endless dedication to the dental hygiene profession. Your tenacity, passion, intellect, and innovation inspire us to be the best we can be. We are so grateful for your leadership as TDHA President this past year of 2021-2022, and we are always eager to see the places you will go!

These pictures represent just a fraction of the people you have encouraged, strengthened, supported, and emboldened. Your influence not only pushes us to be better dental hygienists but to be better leaders! Also, even though your presidential term was caught with Winter Storm Uri and the ongoing challenges with COVID-19, you still managed to soar and reach significant goals. Your leadership brought recognition to long-term and valued TDHA members, more benefits to TDHA membership by hosting CE courses geared towards topics of diversity and inclusion, and implementing fun team-building exercises for your board (peep the axe-throwing picture).

Thank you again for your leadership and all that you do for us. To use a quote from “The Office”,

“The dictionary defines superlative as: of the highest kind, quality, or order, surpassing all else, or others. Supreme. We define it as Janessa Bock. As a dental hygienist, as a leader, as a woman, and as a friend, she is of the highest kind, quality, and order. Supreme.”

We love you and are so proud to stand by you, Janessa!
