Lead Orthodontic Assistant
I work with each patient, providing individual attention during appointments and assisting Dr. Tingey with orthodontic procedures. Working so closely with our patients, it’s amazing to see all the changes and how happy they are with their results. Dr. Tingey is a great orthodontist and is dedicated to his patients’ care. Everyone here wants them to have the best experience possible and leave our office smiling!
I am happily married and have lived in Idaho my entire life. My husband and I love it here because there is so much to do outdoors like running, biking, hiking, and camping.
I have worked in our lab since 1996. I’ve made all our patients’ orthodontic appliances and study models. I am a perfectionist and enjoy knowing my craftsmanship is helping people achieve and maintain beautiful smiles. Like me, Dr. Tingey is also a perfectionist and provides a high level of excellence in treating his patients. It’s truly a privilege to work with him.
In my free time, I enjoy all outdoor activities including mountain biking, skiing, hiking, and camping. I also enjoy playing the guitar and spending time with my daughter who attends Boise State University.
I present all payment plan options to our new patients and am responsible for all bookkeeping, including insurance billing duties. My favorite part is meeting with our new patients and helping them navigate through their financial options to meet their individual needs. I enjoy getting to know our patients, along with their families, and sincerely enjoy what I do. As an orthodontic patient here myself, I can attest to Dr. Tingey’s gentle touch and highest commitment to excellence in patient care.
I married my high school sweetheart, Dennis, and we have two married daughters and three grandchildren. We love doing fun family activities and I am enjoying my new role as “Grandma.” It is absolutely the best!
Orthodontic Assistant/Front Desk
I can be found all around our office, filling in as an orthodontic assistant and handling front office duties on Fridays. It’s been a lot of fun working here over the past 19 years and I can’t imagine a better orthodontic team. We all enjoy working with our patients and providing excellent orthodontic service, always with a smile of course!
I’ve been happily married to my best friend, Carl, for 17 years. We are busy raising our four boys who are very active in sports. When we get the chance we also love vacationing on the Oregon coast.
Patient & Marketing Coordinator
I am the newest member of Dr. Tingey’s staff. I absolutely LOVE my job! It is a joy to meet and greet every single patient that comes into our office, as I am the fresh face you will see up front!
I have a background in general dentistry as a dental assistant as well as some orthodontic sales experience, which led me back to working in the orthodontic field. I also love coordinating all marketing events for Dr. Tingey’s office. If ever you see me out and about, feel free to say, “Hi!”
Last but not least, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two amazing stepsons. I also have a baby girl “Miakoda” who was born in August of 2014! We enjoy going to the movies, swimming at the lake and BBQ’s with family.
I am the newest orthodontic assistant here at Dr. Tingeys office. I get the oppprtunity to work with each and every patient to ensure we achieve that perfect smile every time.
The best part of my job is getting is getting to know each patient individually and being able to assist with Dr. Tingey as well as the other staff members in making sure every patient has a great experience in our office.
I was born here in Idaho and I am one of ten children!! In my free time, I love running, swimming, scary movies and hanging out with my big family.
