Meet the Team

Tammy S. | Practice Administrator
Tammy relocated to the State of North Carolina in 2014. She was born and raised in Chicago; the Navy brought her to the east coast in 1983. Her career in the dental field began in 1984 as a dental assistant in Virginia Beach. After chair side assisting for a variety of dental specialty practices, she went on to be a lab technician, front desk, and eventually office management. At Klooster Family Dentistry she will help with any financial or insurance questions you may have, and can also help explain dental procedures given her history of working directly with the dentist as a dental assistant. During her days off she enjoys family activities, golfing, and is on a committee that raises funds for a child fighting cancer.
