Orthodontic Assistant/Front Desk

I can be found all around our Boise 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 Treasure Valley sports. When we get the chance we also love vacationing on the Oregon coast.


Clinical Assistant

I have worked for Dr. Tingey since 2014. Originally I worked as an assistant, til 2019 I took over up front. I present all payment plan options to new patients and am responsible for all billing, including insurance billing.

I love coming to work everyday being able to meet our new patients and their families, finding a financial plan that works for each individual, and watch their smiles transform.

Born and raised here in Idaho, I love that we get a little bit of all four seasons. My husband Garret and I enjoy spending time with our three beautiful children, we have 2 boys and 1 girl. We enjoy riding jet skis on the lake in the summer time & late night bonfires in the fall.


I have been working at Tingey Orthodontics for over 2 years, but as a dental assistant for over 24 years now. I love working in orthodontics because I love getting to know the patients and I love seeing them improve their smile! I’m so thankful to work side by side with Dr. Travis, Dr. Tingey, and all of my amazing coworkers. We have a great time each and every day, and we have the BEST patients who make our job so much fun!

I have been married for 26 years and I have 4 kids, 1 granddaughter, and hopefully many more to follow. I was born and raised in Idaho and I absolutely love everything about this great state. I’m very active in this community and I’m always wanting to find ways to give back and serve those around me. I also love movies, reading, painting projects, food, baking and crafting with friends.


I have been working as an orthodontic assistant for a couple of years! I am originally from sunny Arizona. I got married in 2019. My husband and i have a son together. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, going to the lake, reading and cooking!


So happy to be part of the Tingey team! I enjoy being the scheduling coordinator and it is a joy to be the first person to meet and greet every single patient that comes into our office. It is great to visit with each of you every month and getting to know your families.

I love being married to my wonderful husband of 25 years. We both grew up in Idaho and love raising our children here. I also love being a sports mom to our 5 children. Besides cheering on my kids at their games, I love the outdoors, boating, traveling, and hiking with my family.


My name is Shelby and I am one of the newest members of the Tingey Orthodontic team. The best part of my job is getting to watch all of our patients leave with a smile. In my free time I love spending time with my family and enjoying the outdoors. I love interacting with all of our patients and watching their orthodontic journey.
