Meet Our Ortho Team

We love kids! Your child will feel right at home in our energetic and fun-filled ortho bay. The Double T Smiles staff joins Dr. Nadene's commitment to excellence in creating healthy, beautiful smiles. Each skilled staff member has been trained through up-to-date orthodontic clinician classes, continuing education courses and seminars, and many years of experience treating children. We earn our patients' faith and trust by building strong relationships and keeping them informed and educated about their orthodontic treatment. Believe it or not, your child will look forward to spending time with us!

Tara: Orthodontic Patient Coordinator

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. I joined the team in 2013 and honestly look forward to coming to work each and every day!  I love my work family and all the families that visit us each day.

As for my family away from work, we welcomed 2 sons-in-law into our family in 2016...and then our family quickly grew by 2 more!  We were blessed with our first grandson, Ridge, on July 17, 2017 and our second grandson, Briggs, was born on January 25, 2018.  Outside of work, we spend every spare moment possible with our kids and grandkids!

Brooke: Orthodontic Financial Coordinator

In May of 2006 I was chosen to join Dr. Nadene's team as her Financial and Insurance Coordinator. I was born and raised in Lubbock and graduated from Texas Tech University with a BBA in Marketing.

I moved to Petersburg in the spring of 2012 with my husband, Coy, and our fur babies: Jewels, Jessa, Chilton, and Eddie. I spend my downtime riding tractors, gardening, reading, traveling, and watching Texas Tech football.

Melissa: Orthodontic Treatment/Marketing Coordinator

Hi, I'm Melissa and I joined the amazing Double T Smiles team in 2007!  I began as the orthodontic patient coordinator. In 2008, I became a Certified Orthodontic Clinician in addition to the Marketing Coordinator. I found my current role as the Treatment Coordinator in 2013. I truly enjoy my job and getting the opportunity to build relationships with our patients and their families. I love helping create beautiful smiles every day, as well as, planning and organizing fun contests and events for our awesome patients.

I am from Shallowater and graduated from Lubbock Christian University in 2005. I am married to my husband Wade and we have been blessed with our precious girls, Hope and Gracie, who keep us very busy! We love being outdoors, visiting our family's ranch, going to sporting events, being involved in our community and church, traveling, and most of all spending time with our family and friends.

Robin: Orthodontic Clinical Coordinator

Hi! I’m Robin. I was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas, and began my life in Lubbock by attending Texas Tech University.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and married my sweet husband, Matt, in 1997. We have a daughter named Macy who keeps us very busy and entertained.  You can most often find us outside, playing with our two dogs, camping, riding bikes, kayaking, or on a really good day, at the beach!

I joined the Double T Smiles team in 2007 and am currently the Orthodontic Clinical Coordinator.  I really enjoy working with our team in caring for our patients because our patients are the BEST!  Dr. Nadene provides her clinicians with constant on-the-job training and continuing education courses, which helps me to feel confident in implementing the unique treatment plan of each and every patient.  I’m also proud to have recently obtained my Specialized Orthodontic Assistant Certification—if you have questions regarding your child’s treatment, ask me!

Olivia: Orthodontic Clinician

Hello! My name is Olivia. I grew up in Michigan, but have called Texas home since 2007. My family includes my husband, Josh, our two boys, Jace and Jett, and our dog, Bear. My sons are proud New Home Leopards.

I joined the Double T Smiles family in 2014 and what a blessing it has been! I love my co-workers and look forward to making a difference in every patient I see. When I am not with your kids at Double T Smiles, I am usually enjoying the outdoors with my family.

Sonia: Orthodontic Clinician

I joined the Double T Smiles team in 2017 as an orthodontic clinician. I love my job and all of the people I meet on a daily basis. I'm also bilingual and can help communicate treatment plans to families when needed.

When I'm not at work, I'm usually spending time with my family and friends, playing soccer, doting on my son, or doing crafts with my daughter.

Stephanie: Orthodontic Clinician

I'm super blessed to have been a part of the Double T family since May 2018. It's an honor to be part of a team that works together to make a difference in your child's life! Outside of work, I love spending time with my kids and loved ones. We love to camp and spend time in the mountains as well as at the lake!

Amanda: Orthodontic Clinician

I have been a part of the Double T Smiles family since 2000! I started in sterilization and then moved to the ortho clinic as a clinician. During this time, I graduated from Texas Tech with a B.S. in General Studies (my areas of focus were: Natural and Behavioral Sciences, as well as French). Shortly after, I completed my RDA Certification. 

Since 2008, I have been the Lab Technician for the office. I fabricate appliances (Rapid Palatal Expanders, Space Maintainers, Habit Appliances, etc.) and Acrylic Retainers! Recently, I have had the privilege to a part of the NAM (Nasoalveolar Molding) team by fabricating the bases of the NAMs in the lab. I love the lab life but, every once in a while, you may see me working with patients in the clinic or helping up front with scheduling!

When I'm not at the office, I love spending time with my sweet husband, Matt, and our two kiddos. Life is never dull at our house and days at home are my favorite! I enjoy playing the trumpet in the church orchestra. I also serve on the PTA boards at two different schools and love to volunteer my time to help where it's needed. When time and schedule allow, you may just catch me with a Harry Potter book in my hand, just enjoying the moment.
