Born in Quincy, California, Kayla began her dental career as an assistant in high school. She then went on to complete her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology at the University of Nevada, Reno. After that, dental hygiene school was completed at Mohave Community College in Arizona in 2011. From there, she and her husband moved back to Reno.
Her love for dentistry has continued to grow since joining Well Beyond Dental and she is thrilled to be a part of Dr. Tammy’s team. In her free time, Kayla enjoys doing home renovations and spending time with her husband and their two sons.

Brigitte is the Patient/Treatment Coordinator for Well Beyond Dental. After meeting with Brian (the Business manager) and with Dr. Tamra Neugebauer, she knew this would be her new forever dental home. The “Vision” of helping people in pain and looking at the whole person and trying to improve their lives was something she wanted to be a part of. Brigitte was looking for a Reno dentistry office that provided the highest quality of care, kindness, and empathy for their patients. For her, that is Well Beyond Dental. She started with Well Beyond Dental in May of 2018.
A little about Brigitte: In her 20’s, she was in the insurance field as an underwriter. Brigitte took some time off to spend with her family and when going back to work she wanted to do something that she believed in. Brigitte went back to school to become a registered dental assistant (RDA). After school, she was hired on with an outstanding dentist that became her mentor. He was always trying to improve every aspect of the dental experience for patients. With that said, he helped Brigitte become the professional that she is today. In the dental field, Brigitte has been a dental assistant, Patient/Hygiene/Insurance/Billing Coordinator, as well as an office manager. He taught her to exceed beyond expectations in every area, and provide the best outstanding care possible for every patient. In doing this, Brigitte’s patients have become a part of her family!
Brigitte has been in the dental field for over 24 years and enjoys every minute of it.
Aimee is a proud dental hygienist at Well Beyond Dental for 3 years now. In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and their three fur babies, working out, and eating Mexican food.
She chose to be in the dental field in high school after she was assigned to write a report on a career path that had interested her. After shadowing a dental hygienist and seeing how they were able to build personal relationships with their patients and help with their confidence, she knew this was the career path for her.
During hygiene school, she became a part of the Global Brigades Organization where we traveled to Honduras to give free dental care to remote villages throughout the country. This helped her form a vision in her head of the type of dental hygienist she wanted to be, and working at Well Beyond Dental has helped her fulfill that vision.
One thing that she loves the most about working at Well Beyond Dental is that they put their patients needs first and have the opportunity to offer them more than just Reno dentistry services. She feels lucky to be a part of this team that allows her to go well beyond for all of our patients.
Brian grew up in Reno and received his BS in Biology from the University of Nevada in 2006. He decided to expand his studies the next year starting the MBA program at the University of Nevada. During the MBA program, Brian worked in logistics, focusing on process improvements and employee management. Brian and Tammy had their daughter, Kaila, in 2009. Shortly after, he decided to make a career shift and began law school at the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in 2011. Two weeks before law school started, Tammy gave birth to their son Shaun. Brian commuted back and forth from Reno to Sacramento for three years to complete his law degree (that was a crazy three years!!)
After graduating, Brian passed the Nevada Bar and was accepted into the Nevada Bar Association. Brian began working for Chief Judge Michael Gibbons as one of Nevada’s Court of Appeal’s first law clerks. When the clerkship was over, he decided to apply his business acumen to Tammy’s practice and started to manage it in 2016. Having a legal and business background allows him to create more efficient systems, understand and educate patients on their rights and responsibilities according to their insurance plans, and navigate challenges brought by ever-changing health rules and regulations.
Brian has been with the practice for over two years and was integral in relocating the practice to its current location to accommodate Reno’s growth and the expansion of Tammy’s dentistry practice in Reno. Of the many qualities he loves about working at Well Beyond Dental, the most important to him is the culture. “Each member of our team believes in making improvements every day to provide care that surpasses our patients’ expectations. Every team member delivers such exceptional and personalized care that it is no wonder our patients put their health in our hands. I invite everyone to experience how our approach is different and see for yourself how our team is committed to
providing care that is well beyond dental.”

Her interests in dentistry started when she was a young kid and loves that she is now able to get to help with patients’ overall health as well as meeting their dental needs.

Oxana is from the Southern part of Russia, city Rostov on Don. She came to the United States in 1999 on an offer to work for Ringling Brothers Circus as a performer. She has traveled across the USA for two years with the company before settling in Reno and becoming interested in dentistry practices. She has been working with Reno Dentist, Dr. Tammy, since 2015.

Jenny has lived in Nevada for over 20 years after moving from the Midwest and has worked with Reno dentist, Dr. Tammy, for 2 years. She returned to TMCC to obtain her hygienist degree once her four children had all grown. Jenny loves working at Well Beyond Dental because she is able to improve her patients’ overall health and diagnosis doesn’t just stop with oral care. She says the best part of her job is helping patients find what works for them to keep their mouths clean and healthy. When not working she loves hiking, snowshoeing, and yoga.
Born and raised in Reno, Dr. Tammy attended the University of Nevada for her undergraduate education. Both her dad, Monte Neugebauer, and brother, Brady Neugebauer, are dentists and because of their influence Dr. Tammy made the career choice to attend University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry In San Francisco. After graduating in 2005, her education ontinued in Florida where she attended an Academic Education in General Dentistry at Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Tammy returned to Reno in 2006 and began practicing at Dr. Lloyd B Austin’s pediatric dental office as well as an associate with her family at Reno Dental Associates. In 2013, Dr. Tammy took ownership of Dr. Monte’s practice allowing him to slow down and eventually retire in 2016.
After so many years treating patients’ dental problems, Dr. Tammy always had a thought that there was an underlying problem contributing to the “symptoms” she was treating daily. She was fortunate to attend a lecture by Dr. Steve Olmos, DDS who discussed how the “origin” of symptoms were often related to sleep, breathing and pain. Dr. Tammy, suffering from these “symptoms” herself had found the missing link in how she was treating her patients. Dr. Tammy started screening patients with just a few simple questions. Can you get to sleep, stay asleep, and feel rested in the morning. Do you have headaches? It was astounding how many of her patients had at least one “yes” to these questions. Dr.Tammy felt she needed to help her patients, so she continued learning to better educate herself so she
could be a better provider for her patients. Sleep, breathing and pain became her passion and mission to help as many people suffering from these underlying, under-treated problems.
Dr. Tammy joined forces with Dr. Olmos partnering as the TMJ Sleep Therapy Centre of Reno. Dr. Tammy continues to thrive about improving her knowledge and experience so she can better serve her patients. With the growth of her practice and continued development of her skills, Dr. Tammy needed more space and more help. Her husband joined her practice in 2016 to help manage and create systems that have made her practice go above and beyond. They realized they needed more space and technology in order to achieve this. On February 1, 2019, Dr. Tammy and Brian proudly opened their new state of the art dental practice, Well Beyond Dental and the TMJ sleep Therapy Centre of Reno.
Bio coming soon!
Kelly, is a dental assistant and she has had the pleasure of being with our dental practice for thirty years.

Kelly is excited to be working with Dr. Tammy and the rest of the team here at Well Beyond Dental. They truly bring caring and compassion to such a higher level than most people are accustomed. Our expertise in both dentistry and treating people with sleep problems and TMJ disorder is an asset to our community and the patients she has become so fond of.
