Tammy Kennedy, Lead Facilitator began her professional journey in the military during Desert Storm, serving her country for a total of 4 years of active duty where she met her future husband. After her discharge, her husband remained in the military for several more years. They were relocated several times, during which Tammy completed an AA in Accounting, worked in the auto industry both in sales and as a Finance/Insurance Manager, and also worked as a real estate agent for two years. After being blessed with twins, Tammy took a hiatus for several years to care for her young family. With a desire to pursue a career that could provide her with challenge, gratification, and a predictable income stream she happened upon a Dental Assisting program and fell in love with dentistry. She landed her first dental position very quickly, but started at the front desk due to the particular needs of the practice. She feels that this initial experience provided her with a great comprehensive introduction to the entire circle of dentistry. Her husband’s job required 9 relocations, which gave Tammy opportunities to work in a number of practices, from small to large, and with single and multiple doctors. She has assisted in both general and specialty offices as well as in the administrative area, and has developed a very diverse dental resume. Tammy is now approaching her 10th year in dentistry, and works in a great office with a fabulous team. She says they are small but efficient, and all of the team members are friends, have a strong work ethic, love what they do, but willingly accept constructive criticism from their peers. Tammy is very much looking forward to becoming closely involved with both using and promoting ourdentalteam.com, and we are even more anxious to welcome her to OUR team. Tammy can be reached by email at email@example.com.
