Shandra

Practice Administrator


Shandra has been working with the TMJ Therapy and Sleep Center off and on for over 15 years and is the Office Administrator.  Her bright smile and friendly personality make everyone feel right at home. Shandra’s ability to do any task that is asked of her makes her an invaluable leader for our team. She is a UNR graduate and enjoys professional baking, public speaking, sky diving and flying, but not at the same time!  She loves spending time with her husband and their adorable son doing just about everything outdoors ~ camping, hiking, fishing, boating and enjoying their friends and family. 

Brenda

Dental Treatment Coordinator


Brenda is a true professional and she handles the front desk, phones, insurance and collections, always multi-tasking day in and day out. Brenda has been working in the dental field for over 25 years and has been working at the TMJ Therapy and Sleep Center for over 10 years. To Brenda, our patients are like family.  She cares about each and every patient and they love her as well.

Jessica

Lead Diagnostic Technician/Lab Technician


Jessica is a quiet force in the office and works closely with Dr. Allman. Each day, she guides patients through the in-depth initial evaluations, a variety of dental procedures, and she always leaves with a smile. Jessica enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and animals, as well as hiking and outdoor activities. It may surprise her patients that Jessica loves ice fishing, snowshoeing, bear trapping, moose hunting, and competition barrel racing. In addition, Jessica has tried bull-riding, wing-walking and teaching her dog the arts of ping pong and paddle boarding — none of which turned out as well as she had hoped. Her dog Izzy is a fierce badger hunter (as can be seen on Youtube) and Jessica is very proud of her efforts.
