“Dentistry has been a perfect fit for me, as it has allowed me to help people of all ages feel better about their smiles and about themselves. Monroe is a great place to practice and live; it has secure, wholesome roots and an active population of young families.”
Janelle C. Eckdhal, DDS
Dr. Eckdhal grew up nearby, on a farm in Shullsburg, Wisconsin. She then attended Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, where she met her husband, Eric. After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Biology, she attended dental school at the University of Iowa and graduated as valedictorian of her class. Dr. Eckdhal attended a general practice residency in Salt Lake City, Utah where she practiced in a large University hospital and a rural clinic on a Navajo Reservation.
Since moving back to Wisconsin in 2006, Dr. Eckdhal has enjoyed practicing general dentistry and expanding the services she provides by attending continuing education courses. She has attended the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Education, the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, and the Hands-on Implant Institute and is a member of the American, Wisconsin and Greater Dane Dental Associations.
In her free time, Dr. Eckdhal loves being outdoors with her husband and four children, Connor, Althea, Evelyn, and Violet. Depending on the time of year, you can find her gardening, camping, horseback riding, or running.
