Tara has been working in dentistry for about 7 years; starting as a receptionist, quickly elevating herself to an office coordinator position, and finally moving to a clinical role. Today, Tara works as a Radiology Licensed Dental Assistant and is actively working towards her Expanded Functions Certification with the ultimate goal of transitioning into Dental Hygiene.
Tara’s story at Dr. Michael Lacey Family Dentistry started long before her dental career – Dr. Lacey has been her family dentist since she was just three years old! He was the initial inspiration and continues to be a driving force and source of support for Tara in her career path.
Outside of work, Tara enjoys spending time with her husband, Spencer, and their young daughter, Raylee. They are always doing something, whether it’s chasing their two labs around or embarking on any number of outdoor adventures.
