Meet the Team
Our Warm and Friendly Dental Team
Classic Dentistry, PC, is a team of dental professionals working together to optimize our patients’ health. We pursue excellence in the administration of dental care and enhance our skills through meaningful continuing education. We are devoted to serving the individual patient and improving their quality of life.
Tammy’s venture into the dental world began when she graduated high school. Her dad told her she was going to college and she could study whatever she wanted…as long as it was either nursing or dental hygiene! Fathers always know best – she received her associate’s degree in dental hygiene from the University of South Dakota – and Tammy says, “It’s been a great career and I wouldn’t have changed anything.” She enjoys nearly every aspect of dental hygiene, but most of all, she loves the people – both the team she works with and the patients for whom she cares.
Tammy and her husband, Steve, have four daughters with three sons-in-law. They have also been blessed with five grandsons! Spending time with her family is by far her greatest joy.
Head Chairside Assistant/Clinical Manager
Kelly joined Dr. Skradski when he first opened his office in 1988, right after she graduated from the dental assisting program at Iowa Western Community College. Together, they built our practice through referral and inspired the commitment to relationship-based care. Kelly always considers patient need first, and this philosophy has been instrumental to our success. Lovingly referred to as “Doctor’s work wife,” Kelly and Dr. Joe “grew up” together in the dental industry and now bring almost 70 years of combined experience to our patients. For Kelly, the very best part of her job is the opportunity to have long-term relationships with our patients. Many of the children she cared for in the early years of our practice now bring their own kids to visit “Dr. Joe and Kelly.”
Kelly and her (real) husband, Kyle, have been married for over 32 years and have two children. Gillian works in the dental field, and Hunter is working in real estate. When not serving our patients, Kelly enjoys golfing and spending time with friends and family.
Cara chose the dental field because she loves knowing we are helping our patients look and feel their very best. She finds it exciting to see new and unique treatment plans and being able to assist patients in the progress towards dental health. She loves dental assisting because it allows her to interact with the patients. Her #1 priority is to make our patients feel comfortable in the dental setting.
In her free time, Cara enjoys spending time with friends and family. She also loves gardening, being outdoors, movies, and any kind of card or board games! Cara comes from a large family, with three siblings. If you want to get her talking, just ask her about her two cats!
Front Desk Supervisor
Carol worked in customer service for many years in the insurance and banking fields. When she and her husband moved to Omaha fourteen years ago, she was ready for a new adventure. Learning the ins and outs of the dental field has been both interesting and fun for her, as there is something new every day. Classic Dentistry has been a good fit for her. She appreciates Dr. Skradski’s work ethic and the conservative, patient-focused practice. The best part of her job is working with our patients and helping them feel as comfortable as possible in the dental setting. Insurance is often confusing, and she focuses on helping our patients understand the insurance process while working diligently to get them their maximum benefit.
Carol has been married to her high school sweetheart, Scott, for 46 years. They have three grown children and eight perfect grandchildren in the Omaha and Kansas City area. Spending time with her family is her #1 “hobby,” but she also loves Husker football and volleyball and is a lifelong Denver Bronco fan. You may also find Carol gardening, reading, or spending time with friends.
Steph joined the Classic Dentistry team in September of 2016. She brings valuable customer service skills from a background in retail sales. She is outgoing, friendly, and always willing to go “above and beyond” to serve our patients. She is Omaha-born and raised in the Millard area. Steph and her husband, Mark, have four grown boys. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and spending time with her family.
Married to Dr. Skradski for over 36 years, Julie embraces his vision of relationship-based care. Responsible for office policy and procedures, Julie graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business with an emphasis on marketing. Her business background frees Dr. Skradski to concentrate on the most important aspect of the practice – patient care.
Julie and Dr. Skradski have five grown children, three of whom are married. In September of 2021, they welcomed their first grandchild! Working for her husband has allowed Julie to create a wonderful work/family balance. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, spending time with close friends, relaxing with Dr. at their cabin, and dropping in on her kids!
