Charlene Janeczko-King, a dentist in Weston, Wisconsin attended the State Conference for the Daughters of the American Revolution in Stevens Point, Wisconsin this past weekend. She is state Parliamentarian for the group and is very interested in genealogy.
Janeczko-King graduated from Marquette Dental School in 1984 and worked at Midwest Dental from 1984-1990. She then opened her own practice and did that until 2010. Right now she works at Cherry Tree Dental at 3715 Weston Ave in Weston, Wisconsin.
“Its a very good experience with Cherry Tree Dental. Its good to work with people they have cherry picked” Janeczko-King said with a smile. She also added she is much happier there than she was in private practice.
“There are only three dentists in Marathon County that have a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry” Janeczko-King explained and added that she is one of the three. She said that these dentists need to get 75 credits every three years to maintain their standing. One of the other dentists in Marathon County with this accreditation has retired and his name was Mark Meacham.
Because of her interest in genealogy she has joined many different societies.
