Tami – Office Manager
Tami knew at the age of 9 that she wanted to pursue a career in the dental profession. Going to the dentist was so much fun for her and she always enjoyed learning more about teeth. She graduated from Southern Maryland Dental in College Park, Maryland with a Registered Dental Assistant/ Radiation Technologist Certification. After holding the position of lead dental assistant for 6 years, she later turned her focus more to office administration. She now has over 17 years experience as a Dental Office Manager. Tami prides herself in building lasting relationships and being able to help patients with their dental insurance & financial options. Some patients even refer to her as the “insurance guru!”
She relocated to Gilbert in 2007, from the east coast. She loves the Arizona sunshine & can’t say enough wonderful things about the amazing people she has met here. Outside of the dental office, she enjoys playing with her adorable shih-tzu, Mojo and catching Diamondback baseball games.
It’s clear when you meet Tami that she loves her position at the office and is very proud to be part of such an awesome team. She looks forward to helping all of our wonderful patients obtain the smiles they deserve!
Tami is a proud member of AADOM, American Association of Dental Office Managers.
