Tammy, Benefits Coordinator

Tammy grew up around the McHenry area and has worked in the medical field since 2008. As she finds everything about the dental field and the care interesting, and has always planned to work with kids, she decided to switch career paths and join the Children’s Dentistry Group, LLC team.

Her duties include verifying patients’ insurance benefits for their upcoming visits and treatment. Once the dentist lets Tammy know what the patient needs for treatment, Tammy will contact the insurance company to find out the amount covered. Then she will put together a treatment estimate for patients, so they know how much their out-of-pocket expense will be before they come in for their appointment. She also helps front staff cover when needed, and ensures everyone feels comfortable and happy.

For Tammy, the most fulfilling part of her job is to help kids feel comfortable when they’re here. “I know that for kids, going to the dentist can be scary initially. When they leave happy and smiling, and you can no longer see the fear in their face, that’s the most rewarding feeling.”

When she’s not working, Tammy is spending time with her family. “We all love animals, so we spend a lot of time going to zoos or playing in the yard with our 2 dogs and our tortoise.”
