Tomalyn

Office Manager

I love watching how a beautiful smile brings people out of their shell and increases their self-confidence. Seeing a patient transform from being reluctant to interact with others because of crooked teeth to become a person who feels at ease and laughs openly, never gets old. I’ve been part of the practice since 2001 and am proud of our team, our doctors, and the work we do.

I’ve been happily married for more than 20 years. We have a wonderful daughter who is studying psychology at Sac State.


Amber

Registered Dental Assistant

Along with the rest of our team, I love watching the positive changes in our patients’ smiles and self-confidence. As patients begin to see their teeth straighten, they become more outgoing and comfortable with themselves. Watching these changes happen, and being part of the process, is rewarding. I’ve been providing assistance to our doctors since 1999 and love every minute of it.

I share my life with my two wonderful children. They each have their own cute kitty, too. When I’m not working, I enjoy being with family and friends. I also like cooking, camping, and hiking.


 

Andrea

Registered Dental Assistant

I love being part of the team that gives amazing people beautiful smiles. When patients come for their visits, they’re always full of news about their hobbies and adventures. I love being included in their stories and laughing with them. I’ve been part of our team since 2004, and look forward to coming to work to see our patients and hear their latest stories.

I have two wonderful sons. Spending time with them is the highlight of my day. I also enjoy painting, scrapbooking, and anything that’s crafty and challenges my creativity.


Sandy

Registered Dental Assistant and Scheduling Coordinator

I love talking with our patients and their families, and hearing about what’s been happening in their lives since their last visit. It’s so rewarding to watch each patient’s confidence grow as he or she moves through treatment and shares that with us! I became part of our team in 2003, and love spending my days helping wonderful people get the smiles they deserve.

I’ve been married for more than 30 years. We have two beautiful daughters, two cats, and an iguana. I enjoy entertaining friends and family, camping, and trips to tropical destinations.


Anne

Registered Dental Assistant

I love working with each of our patients. For people who are feeling a bit fearful about a visit or a procedure, I talk them through everything and stay by their side. Seeing a smile at the end, when they realize it wasn’t a big deal, is great. I joined the team more than 20 years ago and have been part of creating many beautiful smiles. I love it!

My husband Steve and I have two sons, along with a family cat. I love camping and being with my family. When I have the time, I like to play bingo … and I win, a lot!


Pauline

Registered Dental Assistant and Scheduling Coordinator

I love seeing how our patients grow and change over the years, especially our younger patients. But each person transforms during orthodontics. Watching an adult get the smile they’ve waited years to obtain is just as rewarding. Everyone blossoms and becomes more confident. I have worked with the team since 2000 and value the people I’ve had the opportunity to meet.

My husband Jon and I have a son who’s in middle school. When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family. I also love to scrapbook, read, and go shoe shopping.


Alishia

Community Involvement and Insurance Coordinator

I love seeing our patients develop beautiful smiles they can share with confidence. Each person grows and blossoms during orthodontic care: watching them start to smile more openly and begin to come out of their shell always makes me happy. I started working with the team in 2004 and love spending my days surrounded by laughter and smiles.

My husband and I have two wonderful children. Family vacations are one of my favorite things, along with attending Giants games!


Shayna

New Patient Coordinator

I love greeting everyone who walks through our doors; those smiling faces make my day! Seeing a person excited to start working on their new smile, and then watching their smile, along with their personality, change and grow, is amazing. I’ve been part of our team since 1999 and can honestly say that I still get excited about every one of our patients’ beautiful transformations.

My husband and I are actively involved with our children’s year-round sport activities. You’ll usually find us on the soccer, baseball, or football fields, or poolside.


Sam

New Patient Coordinator

I love getting to know the wonderful people in our community. Along with my team members, I’m driven to give our patients the best orthodontics experience and make sure they’re always laughing during their visits. Seeing their warm and happy smiles, and how confident they become, is the best feeling. I’ve been part of the office since 2014 and love everything about it.

I have two handsome sons and two kitties who keep my life very busy. Outside work, I love to spend time with friends and family, working out, hiking and visiting the beach. 


Abby

New Patient Coordinator

As a treatment coordinator I work to educate new and existing patients on their treatment plan, and I strive to make your first appointment fun and educational. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people every day and I do all that I can to ensure each patient is comfortable with their treatment and that they have fun at their appointments.  The patient experience at Holt Orthodontics is unlike any other, and I love coming to work each day with a great team!

I relocated to California in 2016 with my husband who has been in the Coast Guard for 8 years. In our free time we love to do CrossFit, take our dog on hikes, and travel as much as we can! 


Katie

New Patient Coordinator

I started with Holt Orthodontics as a patient and I know how much having a confident smile can impact a person’s life. I had such an amazing experience as a patient, the one on one, hands on care made all the difference. Now that I am a part of the Holt Team I have the priviledge to deliver that same experience to our patients. I have been a Scheduling Coordator for about a year now and have enjoyed every second of it! 

In our free time my Husband and I like to go antique shopping, take trips to San Francisco and spend time with our families.


Sandy

Registered Dental Assistant

I love seeing all the happy, healthy, beautiful smiles that our team creates. It’s a joy to work in a field where we improve lives for the long term, and where we’re surrounded by happy, smiling patients. When I joined the team in 2013, I had more than 20 years of orthodontic experience. I have to say that this is the most positive, fun environment in which to spend my days.

My husband and I have three wonderful children. Away from work, I love family time, traveling, outdoor activities, and Lake Tahoe.


Pam

Registered Dental Assistant

I love helping people, children and adults alike, to achieve their lifelong smiles. Having a great smile means a healthier and happier life for a person, and it’s a pleasure to be part of making it happen. I’ve been working in orthodontics for more than 30 years and love everything about it. I’m still delighted with every finished, incredible smile!

My husband and I have two grown children and three fabulous grandchildren. In my spare time I like running, biking, and swimming. These allow me to participate in my favorite sport: triathlons.


Shelly

I love seeing all our smiling patients. They come through the doors so excited to show us the changes in their smile, and eager to share the latest news about their lives. Becoming friends with each person during their visits, and learning about their families and interests, is always amazing. I’ve been working in orthodontics for eight years and joined our team in 2014.

I’ve been happily married for 25 years. My husband and I have three awesome kids. We love visiting the Southern California beaches, as well as wake surfing, biking, skiing, and pretty much anything outdoors.


Anna

I love being a part of a team that gets to transform smiles all day as well as working with 3 amazing doctors! Working in Orthodontics is so much fun, I love seeing and remembering all the smiling faces that walk through the doors. I remember being in braces myself, so I love to connect and bond with our patients.

My fiancee and I enjoy spending lots of time at the beach, Giants baseball games, and shopping! 


Emily

Dental Assistant

I love when treatment is complete our patients can be confident knowing that every first introduction, every job interview and every photo taken from that moment on is a chance to show off that winning smile!

Outside of work I have four amazing children, two girls and two boys, that keep my life exciting and my heart full. In our spare time we enjoy riding bikes, road trips, camping, trips to the beach and dance parties!


Amanda

Scheduling Coordinator

I joined the Holt Team as the records technician and now work the front office. I love seeing everyone’s beautiful smiles as they come in the front door. Getting to know patients and their families throughout their orthodontic journey is a great experience. Seeing patients confidence grow as their smiles are perfected is very rewarding.

I enjoy spending time with my fiance and our families as well as our dogs. We love to take our boat out and travel when we get the chance. Tahoe and Hawaii are our favorites!


Sara

Making people smile is my passion. I’ve always wanted a career that helps people, and this profession does just that!

Jasmine

I love the excitement you see on patient faces when their treatment has finished. The sign of accomplishment is amazing. Working in orthodontics is amazing because its constantly changing and I love learning and conquering any challenges that are given to me. Orthodontics gives you a job well done at the end of the day. 

My husband and I have two beautiful boys and one cat named Karlos. We enjoy spending time with family and going on adventures with our kids.


Tamisha

I have been a dental assistant for 16 years. I have a special niche for orthodontics. The relationships and bonds I form with patients is the reason I have stayed in the orthodontic field. I like that we get to talk more with our patients, watch as they grow, and their smiles change. 

I have a wife and four wonderful kids. I enjoy doing crafts, dancing, and I play professional women’s tackle football for the Sacramento Sirens #90.

I love seeing our smiling patients come in everyday! It is great to see how excited they are to begin treatment and gain that perfect smile they’ve been dreaming of. Being part of the team here at Holt Orthodontics is so much fun! Everyone working here truly cares about each and every patient. 

In my spare time I really enjoy going skiing and hiking or spending time with friends and family.

Kamy

I am fresh out of school and am currently working as the records technician. I can already tell I am going to stick with orthodontics because it is such a positive field. Seeing people come in with dislikes about their teeth, and changing those into the beautiful smiles of their dreams is so heart warming. Showing patients their before and after photos is the best! I love being a part of that transformation. 

I love spending time with my wonderful family, friends, and my cats! I also enjoy painting and kayaking.
