Meet the Team

Our team at Barnett Orthodontics consists of a friendly and experienced group of individuals who come together every day to provide the most exceptional medical experience possible. We like to laugh and interact with our patients and their families. Some of our employees have been with our office over 30 years and some have even been patients in the past! We’d love to welcome you into our Barnett Ortho family!

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!

Everyone in our office is super friendly; we have fun while making 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 spare time crafting, running, and reading.

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.
