Meet the Staff
Stacy – Office Manager
From your first call or visit to our office, you are likely to speak with Stacy. She is a sweet, genuine person who truly enjoys meeting and working with our patients. Her extensive medical background is great preparation for her role in managing dental insurance submission for our practice. She has a son and daughter, both in college, and 4 dogs. She enjoys shopping, traveling, and time with family and friends. Stacy’s favorite thing about our practice is our focus on patient care. Dr. Jim, as well as the rest of the staff, makes the patients’ comfort a priority, and she is a great example of this as well.
Lynise – Dental Assistant
Lynise, originally from Huntsville, is married with 2 children. She’s an avid Razorbacks fan, and appreciates our area’s gorgeous scenery and small-town atmosphere. Lynise is a true team-player and is appreciated for her sly wit. She has a calming personality that enables her to explain procedures to patients in a way that reduces their apprehension and puts them at ease.
Kourtney – Dental Assistant
We are so lucky to have wooed Kourtney back to our practice after she and her husband had their adorable daughter in 2017. She is such an upbeat and energetic person – you might find her dancing in the hallway! She and her family enjoy sports of any kind – as participants and spectators. Kourtney is very close to her family and spends time with them whenever possible. Our patients appreciate her for her warmth and knowledge.
Lesha – Marketing Coordinator
Lesha may be a familiar face if you attend plays and musicals in Northwest Arkansas. She loves musicals and regularly performs in them at Arts Center of the Ozarks, while she and her husband are raising their young son, daughter and dog. She enjoys taking advantage of the outdoor and cultural activities that our area offers. Lesha’s favorite thing about our practice is seeing a patient walk out the door feeling great when they came to us with apprehension and pain. She has been in dentistry for 15 years, and we are fortunate to have such a sharp, welcoming person.
Jackie – Practice Trainer
Jackie has been a dental assistant since 1974. She joined Dr. Jim Tinnin in 1984 as a chairside assistant. She was our long-time Clinical Director, managing the clinical staff, and was responsible for overall implant and endodontic inventory. She is one of our most knowledgeable staff members and a crucial member of the practice, so we are lucky to have her in a part-time role for anything we need. Jackie is married with two sons, three grandchildren, and one dog. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading, gardening, and antiquing, but her true passion is making jewelry. In her spare time, you will most likely find her outdoors enjoying nature with her family, but not too close to any bodies of water!
Mary Beth – Office Administrator
Mary Beth, or MB, as we call her, is our Office Administrator and an important part of our business staff since 1994. On any given day, you may see her assisting patients at the front desk, on the phone with insurance, handling the practice bookkeeping, and fixing a computer or two. Her background is in customer service and accounting. She loves to spend her weekends at the lake with her husband and her son, who is in college. Her favorite pastimes are reading, hiking with her husband and 2 dogs, and watching foreign movies.
