Below are the members of the MDC team and these are their stories:
I have been working in dentistry since 1995 and have witnessed many changes. One constant, however, are our providers at MDC. I am proud to say that I get to work with the best of the best! As a practice administrator I have various duties to keep our office running smoothly such as backing up all team members, scheduling meetings, hiring new employees, and overseeing daily operations. I try to be open and honest with all of our patients because I want them to feel like part of our dental family.
My husband, Clayton, and I have seven children and one dog. In the last year, our oldest has flown the coop and is off serving our country as a United States Marine. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, fishing, and of course shopping!
My job is to help our patients understand their financial responsibilities with their dental care. Working in the front office of our dental practice brings me joy as I interact with patients, sharing stories with them and getting to know them on a personal level. I personally treat every patient like a guest in my home. Our doctors are very professional and want the absolute best for our patients at Meridian Dental Clinic. When I go home at night, I am at ease knowing our doctors have truly given their all, to each and every patient.
Something fun about me is that I love fast cars and love singing at the top of my lungs like no one is ever listening. I call these “Tamara Sue Concerts!”

My goal as a hygienist is to treat and care for each patient individually according to their specific dental needs through preventive and therapeutic treatment as well as patient education.
Outside of work, I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities including hiking, canoeing and kayaking to name a few. I also love experimenting new recipes from one of my favorite websites, allrecipes.com. Three fun facts about myself: I am a twin, I have lived in four different countries (China, Japan, Canada, America), and "Friends" is my all-time favorite TV show. I have watched all ten seasons at least five times!

Dentistry is the key to a healthy and great life! As a registered dental assistant my main responsibility is to help the doctors with all dental procedures and presenting patients with treatment plans. My favorite part, however, is giving our patients the care they need and deserve.
