Tammi

Orthodontic Assistant

With 38 years in the dental field, 32 have been here at Barnett Orthodontics. I assist Dr. Barnett with patient care, take digital radiographs and photos, provide computer support, and do anything else that needs to be done to make our office run smoothly. For me, the most interesting part of my job is the mechanical aspect: being a part of changing someone’s smile and seeing their outlook on life blossom! Each individual on our team brings a different personality to share, which means we have a unique way of helping, caring, and having fun as a team and with our patients. There’s never a dull moment!

In my free time, I’m active in my church and with my family. I’m enthusiastic and friendly, and am grateful to have such a wonderful career!

I am one of our chairside assistants and I am also cross-trained in the lab. I also coordinate marketing through community outreach and social media. My favorite part of my job is giving patients of all ages the confidence and self-esteem that comes with having a beautiful, healthy smile. Everyone in our office is super friendly. We all care about our patients and work well as a team. We try our best to have fun and make each and every patient feel comfortable and welcome in our office!

In my free time, I love hanging out with my family and friends. I have three sisters who I am very close with. I also spend a lot of my time crafting and reading. I have an adorable cat named Bean.

It’s a great feeling to see the ending results and feel that we have all come together to make a very positive difference in our patients’ world by giving them a terrific smile and added confidence. I truly enjoy meeting and getting to know our patients and families who come to our office to improve their smiles. It’s so rewarding to see all the smiles!

I am responsible for seeing day-to-day patients for all procedures and keeping up with the progress of our younger patients who aren’t quite ready for braces yet. I love working with kids and making them smile. Each patient becomes like family, and our team is like family, too. I enjoy working with Dr. Barnett and all of the girls because we are always laughing and having a great time while getting our job done. There’s never a dull moment in this office!

I am happily married to my best friend and husband, Rob, and in December of 2015, we welcomed our first bundle of joy, Aubrey, to the world. We also have two golden-doodles named Gracie and Stella. We love going camping over the weekends and are very active in our church. You’ll typically find me outdoors, target shooting with the family, or at a bonfire listening to country music.

Most often, I can be found in our in-house lab, where I prepare indirect bonding trays, make appliances, and pour and prepare impressions as needed. It is very important to me to provide patients with prompt service and quality products in a pleasing environment. Our wonderful office atmosphere is a direct reflection of our team’s attitude. Although we take our work seriously and feel it is important to provide quality care, at the same time we enjoy having fun. The 26 years I have worked here have led to many lifelong friendships.

I have been married for 40 years and have two children and one granddaughter. Most of our free time is spent attending her sporting activities.
