Hanosh & Hunter Hygiene Team
I love working with Dr. Scott, Dr. Hunter, and our wonderful staff! I have worked with the office for over 20 years now! We are all very close like family. I love my job! I enjoy the friendships I have made with my patients. I also enjoy educating my patients so they can strive to have a happy, healthy smile and overall better health.
Outside of work, I also work along with my husband in our own tile and stone business. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys and best friend, my mom! I enjoy the great outdoors of camping, riding dirt bikes, snow skiing, and hanging out at the ocean!
I'm a local Paradise girl, born and raised. I went to college in Texas where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in dental hygiene, and while I loved Texas, I am happy to be back in Paradise and near my family again. I love dental hygiene, and my favorite aspect about my job is getting to know my patients on a personal level and building relationships with them. I absolutely love working at this office because we are like family here! When I'm not working, I enjoy playing racquetball and ultimate frisbee, hiking, being involved with my church, and spending time with my family - especially my little nieces and nephew! I can't wait to meet you, and I hope you'll be the next member of our dental family!
After growing up in the Bay Area and enjoying many years along the coast, I ventured up to Butte County with my love of 25 years. We enjoy raising our three children and the slower paced lifestyle in Northern California. Never could I have imagined our most recent "adventure" though we look forward to rebuilding our home and community in Paradise following the Camp Fire.
I joined Hanosh & Hunter Dental Group with ten years of experience in Dental Hygiene. I’ve now had the pleasure of sharing almost seven years amongst a group of amazing humans who share the important vision of excellent patient care in a safe and friendly environment while staying committed to advancing our skills and knowledge in dentistry. I enjoy the opportunity to create relationships with my patients while helping them achieve an understanding of their role in complete oral care and its importance to their overall health. I look forward to the continued growth of our dental family and connecting with the individuals of our community.
New to the area, I am incredibly lucky to have joined Hanosh and Hunter Dental Group. I immediately felt welcome and cared for, a sentiment I am sure is not unfamiliar to all of our patients.
I have always loved the dental field and started early at the age of 16 training as a dental assistant. That solidified my desire to pursue a career in the dental field and I graduated with a bachelors in Dental Hygiene from Loma Linda University in Southern California.
I love traveling and experiencing new places, which was a big reason why I chose to move to the small island of Saipan to kickoff my hygiene career. Home eventually called me back to San Luis Obispo before I chose to settle down in Chico, where I've had to opportunity to explore the lakes, rivers, and local gyms. I've loved my time here and look forward to meeting more of Hanosh and Hunters great patients!
I recently moved to the area and I’m loving the nature that encompasses Chico, especially the rivers and lakes! I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors — hiking, swimming, and tossing a softball from time to time. I love to catch up on a few TV shows, draw, and paint during my free time.
I went to Loma Linda University to receive my bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. I graduated top of my class, elected to membership in Sigma Phi Alpha, and received the Dean’s Award. Now, I am proud to say that I am a member of the Hanosh and Hunter Dental Group, a group that has been ever so welcoming and caring. I also have the amazing opportunity to work with my sister, Roxana!
I’m happy to have a profession in which I can educate and help my patients maintain and reach a healthy smile, while having the opportunity to form friendships. I have always dreamed of having a career in which I could provide care to my patients' overall health. I’m thrilled to be a part of this community and provide the dental knowledge I have.

My name is Jen, aka J-Lo and I was born & raised in Oroville. I entered the dental field in ’94, where I attended the ROP Dental Assisting program in Durham, CA. I have always been passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. I relate to having anxieties/fears of the dentist and I have made it a goal of mine to help ease patients’ fears and provide them an extraordinary experience. I have worked with Hanosh, Hunter & Farris Dental Group for a little over a year now and I have enjoyed getting to know our amazing patients and collaborating with our dental family.
Outside of work, my family is my world. I have 3 daughters, a son, son-in-law, 2 doggies and 1 granddaughter (that keeps us on our toes). My youngest children are big on sports and I love seeing their passion for baseball and cheer grow and spending weekends watching their games.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and welcoming you to the Hanosh, Hunter & Farris dental family.

Ioani, AKA, Wani, RDA
My name is Ioani Anderson, AKA, Wani. I am from Pohnpei Island, Micronesia. I have worked in the dental field since 1980. I started as a dental assistant in Saipan, Marianas Island, and then in Maui, Hawaii. I have worked with Dr. Scott as an RDA since 2004. I enjoy traveling, photography, and working with flowers.
I am beginning my 43rd year in dentistry as a Registered Dental Assistant. I received my AA degree in Dental Assisting in 1975. I took the very first RDA in August of that year and received my license. I also went back to school and received my BS degree in Business in 1983. I began my career at the VA Hospital in Livermore the summer between my first and second year of school. I also did a quarter of internship there. After I graduated I worked in an office in Livermore as an RDA for 22 years before moving to the Redding area. I spent 17 years in a dental office in Anderson, CA, before the dentist decided to retire. I have been living here in Paradise for 13 years, so 12 of the 17 years I commuted everyday to Anderson. I was very fortunate to find a RDA position here in Paradise with Dr. Scott and Dr. Hunter. I feel very blessed, and my hope is to end my career here in this office. We do everything here that I have always dreamed of doing in the dental profession such as implant surgery, orthodontics, iv sedation, same day CEREC crowns. If I am not doing dentistry, you will find me in my backyard gardening.

I was born and raised right here in Paradise. I have been in the dental field for 11 years and love my job. What I love most is interacting with people and providing quality care for our patients.

I am a mother to three beautiful children, including a set of boy/girl twins! My hubby, Eldon and I grew up together and have spent most of our adult lives together. Fun fact: my mom was Eldon's dental assistant when we were kids! I enjoy meeting new patients and helping them on their journey to a perfect smile. It is such a pleasure to watch patients start shy or fearful, but leave feeling confident and at ease about their dental experience.
On my time off, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We love to traveI and make fun memories all together. I have always strongly valued family and spending quality time together, which is why I love this practice--it does not feel like work, it feels like family. I look forward to meeting you here to join our family too!
I was born and raised in Paradise. My husband (Shawn) and I have two children: Mackenzie and Michael. Both kids are very active in sports and we spend most of our evenings and weekends at softball & baseball games, wrestling tournaments, soccer games, etc. I’m a very proud sports mom! When we aren’t at sporting events, we love to spend time at our family cabin in Philbrook, go fishing, camping, hunting, and hiking.
I have been part of the Hanosh and Hunter team since 2013. I feel blessed to be able to work with this amazing group of people, who have become more like family than co-workers.

I’m recently engaged to my fiancé, Robert and we have one little fur baby named Buster! He’s a spoiled doggo. When I’m not here helping with your smile, you can find me spending time with my family and friends. Whether that be out on the town trying all the new foods, out on the lake or in the mountains!

I then got pregnant with my son in 2015 and decided to go back to school to get my license for a registered dental assistant. (RDA) I then worked as an RDA for 3.5 years. I got comfortable in my position and I then decided to go back to school again for an RDA-EF2. I "graduated" in April of 2020. (Did not have a graduation due to Covid-19)
I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 4-year-old son Konner and our two chocolate labs. In my free time, I like to go camping, work in my garden, on the lake, snowmobiling, random adventures, floating on the river, barbecues, and just about anything outdoors.

I am currently engaged, have 2 amazing boys, and am blessed to gain 2 more boys. Together we will be outnumbered with 4 boys! In my free time, I love to be outdoors with my boys. Whether it is in the garden or up in the mountains hunting or fishing. Outdoors is where you will find us most of the time.
