Jana Lowe, CFO
I married my high school sweetheart, Dr. Jeffrey Lowe, in 1994 and I have always played a part in his/our dental journey. As Dr. Lowe was attaining his DDS degree I completed a BS degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1996 with a double major. Our journey brought us to Hays, KS in the spring of 1997. Currently I am the CFO of Lifetime Dental Care as well as filling in whenever necessary. Hays is the birthplace of our three children, and we spend most of our time attending their activities, camping, boating, and movie watching.
Valerie Yates, RDH
I grew up in Oberlin, KS. After graduating from high school, I attended the Colby Community College Dental Hygiene program. In 2001, I moved to Hays, KS, to start my career as a dental hygienist. I have worked with Dr. Jeffrey Lowe since that time. My husband and I have two daughters, which keeps us very busy. If I do get spare time, I love to read mystery books or watch a good movie. As a complete health advocate, I believe in educating my patients not only about their oral health, but also about how it can affect their overall health. My goal is to have them not only be educated for their own self, but also take that knowledge and spread it to their friends and loved ones.

I stay involved in my family’s schools, church and 4-H and love spending time with my family and watching my grandkids. Prior to Hays, I grew up on a family farm, near Hoxie, Kansas and was the 5th of 9 kids. I have been a hygienist nearly 3 decades, after receiving my Bachelor of Science at the University of Missouri School of Dentistry in Kansas City. My goal is to help my patients obtain and maintain optimum health for a lifetime.
