Patient Coordinator/Dental Assistant
Brenda came to our practice in 1997 and has been in the dental field since 1987. She helps families with scheduling, coordinates treatment plans with parents, and assists at the hospital and in the office. She loves working with children and seeing the patients accomplish their treatment. She enjoys easing the minds of parents and their children with her smile and voice of encouragement. Her reward is seeing their smiles at the end of the appointment! Brenda has been married to her husband, Scott, for twenty-one years. They have three boys, Adam, Collin, and Justin, who keep them very busy, and a dog named Emily. She loves spending time outside, camping, and flower gardening. Cooking is one of her great passions, and they love to farm!
Nichole joined our practice in 2009. Her focus is preventive care and assisting with procedures. Her favorite part of dental assisting is hearing the children's creative stories and witnessing a child who is nervous end up having a great time! She loves working with the Tailwind team because they are always smiling and having fun together. Nichole recently bought a house in St. Paul Park with her fiancé, James, and they are planning a wedding in the spring of 2014. She loves scrapbooking and to be outside with family and friends.
Tammy has been with our practice since 2002 and has been in the dental field since 1990. She has experience with all aspects of pediatric dentistry, including assisting with procedures, placing fillings, and preventive care. She enjoys the challenge of working with children who think they "can't do it," and helping them through the procedures so that they "can do it!" She especially enjoys working with children with autism. Tammy loves to travel and has two children that have made her very proud!
