Tina Headshot


Orthodontic Assistant/Lab Technician/Public Relations

I have been with Pioneer Orthodontics for 11 years; I came with more than 20 years of experience working in the field of orthodontics.

I assist Dr. Tewes with all orthodontic procedures and ensure that each patient has a wonderful experience. The best part of my job is helping each patient progress through treatment and seeing their beautiful smile in the end.

I grew up in Ogallala, my husband grew up in Lincoln. We raised our family in Ogallala and relocated to Lincoln about 13 years ago.

I enjoy golfing, home decorating, baking, working in the yard and most of all spending time with my family! I also enjoy hanging out with friends, laughing, and living life to the fullest!

Scheduling Coordinator

I am the scheduling coordinator and have been here for a little over two years. I am here to help schedule appointments to make them as convenient as possible for our patients. I also assist with keeping track of paperwork and touching base with patients to get any questions answered. I enjoy seeing our patients’ transformations once they’re finished with their treatment. I also love getting to know our patients and working with such a great team.

I am from York so it’s great to reconnect with the community. I now live in Lincoln with my two corgis. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, going to concerts, and spending time with my family and dogs.

Financial & Insurance Coordinator

What started as a part-time job in 1995, turned full-time in 2006. In 2020, I ‘semi-retired’ and now am back to part-time. I am here to help you with your financial needs, insurance questions, and coordination of treatment. I also assist my team by tracking and providing monthly reports. I love building relationships with our patients and their families and seeing them smile.

I have lived in Lincoln all but 13 years of my life, during which time I lived in York. I have two sons, one daughter, two grandsons, and one granddaughter. In my free time, I enjoy reading, gardening, traveling, and most of all time with my grandchildren. My oldest son is a basketball coach, and I enjoy following the progress of his teams too.
