Tanya

Tanya

Office Manager

I’m involved in all aspects of our patients’ care and wear many hats around our office. I’ve worked with Dr. Portnoff over 20 years and we share the same philosophy of treating patients with compassion and kindness. I am a standing member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers, and currently pursuing my fellowship. With our great patients and wonderful staff, they truly are like my second family.

When I have free time I enjoy my time on the beach and attending as many live concerts as I can. I love all music.

Lauren

Lauren

Dental Assistant/Patient Care Coordinator

As a longtime dental assistant, I've transitioned to an office role. Having the clinical experience I do, I feel as though I am able to help patients with understanding the procedure they are having from both a scheduling and clinical standpoint.  I recently earned my fellowship with the  American Association of Dental Office Managers.

I've worked with Dr. Portnoff and team since 2011. Before that, Dr. Portnoff and I worked together at another dental office.  I love the high standard of patient care we have dedicated ourselves to in this office. We take time with every patient to ensure their comfort both in the treatment rooms and at the end of their appointments while checking out is maintained.

My husband and I (and my daughter, Devyn-see below!) live on a farm, and have plenty of animals that keep me busy while not at work. My family enjoys to travel, and our favorite destination is Walt Disney World.

I joined Cornerstone Dental Care in April of 2016.

Being on the front line of patient care, I look forward to helping our patients to maximize their time with scheduling appointments, and coordinating their benefits.

I have experience working with and understanding the unique world of dental insurance. I hope my knowledge will help you to understand your benefits!

I love to spend time with my family, including my grandchildren who absolutely warm my heart.

Patient Care Coordinator/ New Patient Coordinator/ Social Media Coordinator

Joing the Cornerstone team in 2018, I enjoy the friendly and calming atmosphere. Everyone I work with are very helpful, happy and we all care about doing the best thing possible for our patients.

I work at the front desk, and really love communicating with our patients and creating engaging social media posts. I love getting to know each patient, and creating a warm and welcoming enviornment to everyone who walks in.

I live on a farm and love all my animals. My pride and joy is my German Shepherd, Leena. We've been doing some extensive training starting when she was an 11 week old puppy, and I'm hoping to compete in agility with her! I have many other animals, but a few of my favorites include my new horse, Ducky, who is a standardbred/hanoverian/QH cross and my Clydesdale foal, Gypsy.
