Tara Euresti: Orthodontic Patient CoordinatorTara Euresti

My name is Tara and I'm a Patient Coordinator for Dr. Nadene. You could say our whole family has been part of the Double-T-Smiles Team for many years, because we have all been patients of Dr. Nadene. That includes myself, my husband Abner, and our twin daughters, Kiersten and Kelsie. For the past several years, I have worked as a realtor. The flexibility allowed me to spend more time with our girls and keep up with the busy schedule of teenagers. Now that they are in college, I wanted a more stable work environment, and I couldn't be happier working with the Tipton Team. We are basically homebodies and really do treasure our family time. We all share the same sense of humor and are happiest when we are all laughing together. We share our home with three dogs; Remo, Bally, and Heidi, who think we live with them.


Brooke Brashear: Orthodontic Financial Coordinator Brooke Brashear

I was born and raised in Lubbock. I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BBA in Marketing. I have been Dr. Nadene’s Financial and Insurance Coordinator since 2006. In 2010 I took over operations for the building. Anytime Dr. Nadene yells, “Maintenance” I come running. I enjoy my job and love getting to know all the families. I currently reside in Petersburg with my best friend, Coy and our two dogs, Beast and Jewels. In my spare time I enjoy riding the tractor, reading, traveling, gardening, but most of all spending time with family and friends.

Robin Wolfington: Orthodontic Clinical Coordinator Robin Wolfington

I have been a Certified Orthodontic Clinician with Double-T-Smiles since 2007. I am from Amarillo, Texas and moved to Lubbock to attend Texas Tech and, of course, met the love of my life, Matt. We have one daughter, Macy, who keeps us constantly laughing and on the run. The Double-T-Smiles family has been a huge blessing to me, and I make it my daily goal to pass that blessing on to patients.

I am so excited to be part of the team here at Double-T-Smiles as a certified dental clinician. I enjoy getting up everyday to come to work and see each and every one of the kids' smiling faces. In my spare time, I like to be with family and friends, watching movies and relaxing. I have the most talented cat in the Lubbock area named Reggie.

When I moved to Lubbock, I researched the best dental offices and found Double-T-Smiles. I was so happy to find a home here and become part of this family! I enjoy the atmosphere here and love working with all of the different patients. I grew up in Higgins, TX, a small town of about 400 people. After high school, I moved to Amarillo, TX and attended Amarillo College. I received an associate’s degree in Childhood Development. After I graduated from AC, I attended Milan Institute of Allied Health and became a registered dental assistant. I married my childhood sweetheart, Avory.

I look forward to caring for your children and watching them grow.
