Tammy HowardI graduated from Coastal Carolina Community College in Jacksonville North Carolina’s Dental Assisting class of 1987. I enjoyed a long career chairside assisting and becoming certified in orthodontics, sedation with nitrous, infection control, Osha compliance and insurance filing to increase my knowledge in the dental office. I gradually moved to the business side of dentistry and have enjoyed every aspect of it.

I have been married for 27 years and have a son who is 23 years old, married and they blessed me with a wonderful granddaughter, Gracelyn. I love to read, listen to music, and being Grammy Tammy “GT” to Gracelyn. I enjoy rescuing and healing animals of any kind so they know and feel well deserved love. I believe we all matter in this life great or small.

My favorite quote is “do not cry because it’s over…smile because it happened” – Dr. Seuss
