Pinamonti "Winning Smiles"
on Pitt State Fans
Get your confident smile with Gina B. Pinamonti, DDS!
When it comes to your smile, we know nothing is more important than the comfort of your orthodontic experience. Our office is bright and cheerful with spacious seating areas. Dr. Pinamonti and our team like to establish a relationship with each patient, making sure we learn about their interests and activities. We love hearing all about what makes you smile!
Dr. Pinamonti offers SureSmile® orthodontic technology which allows her to use her diagnostic and clinical skills to align patients’ teeth virtually and then produce the appropriate wires to achieve the objectives of the treatment plan. Most of the time this results in faster and more efficient treatment. Dr. Pinamonti was the first orthodontist in Kansas to employ the SureSmile technology, and has been using it with great success since 2011.
SureSmile also allows Dr. Pinamonti to offer lingual braces (placed on the back side of the upper teeth) that are virtually invisible when smiling. This is a great option for people concerned about aesthetics during treatment.
We have also invested in a laser to aid in patient treatment. This allows Dr. Pinamonti to remove tissue that is in the way of placing brackets, as well as uncover teeth that are impacted.
We want to make sure our patients and their parents are partners in the care and implementation of their orthodontic treatment. We make every effort to explain each patient’s treatment needs and the treatment plan in terms they can understand. We are always available for questions and emergencies. We’re in this together!
Our team is "Smiling Out Loud"!
Celebrating Halloween "Grease" Style
Welcome to our practice! I work in the front office as the schedule coordinator, and have been crossed-trained to assist Dr. Pinamonti as a chair assistant as well. Our team is great, and we can make even the shyest children come out of their shell! My favorite part of my job is seeing how much each patient changes from their first appointment to their last! Dr. Pinamonti really takes pride in her work, and does it extremely well. It’s not a job, it’s a passion of hers, and it continues to show every day.
In my spare time, my family is my highest priority. My husband Brad and I have two children. Jeremey lives in Oklahoma and works for the railroad, and Shaylun attends Girard High School. Our daughter keeps us very busy throughout the entire year, because she plays volleyball and softball during school and competes on a traveling softball team during the summer and fall
I’m the treatment coordinator, and I assist Dr. Gina with the new patient exams and answer any questions our patients may have about treatment. I especially enjoy working with the kids and seeing the changes that occur from the beginning of treatment to the final results. Dr. Gina truly cares for her patients, and it shows! She takes into consideration every patient and the treatment they need and what is best for their individual treatment.
I am married to Tom and we have five children — Jennifer, Matthew, Katie, Rachel, and Spencer — and three grandchildren: Madisyn, Wyatt, and Morgan. We also have a new puppy: an Australian shepherd named Murphy! I love riding motorcycles, going on adventures, and seeing the world in a different way than by car. Time spent with family and friends is the best.
Communication is a very large part of my job. I explain treatment options to patients and their loved ones and discuss every portion of their customized plan. I love being part of the process, from the first consultation visit to the end of treatment when I take a final smile photo that shows the gorgeous results. I can answer questions about any of the tools Dr. Pinamonti uses to improve smiles! At this office, we are more than just employees and co-workers; we are friends that care about and support one another.
I married my high school sweetheart Jonathan, and together we have two children, Jonah and Aurora. We spend most of our time cheering them on at various sporting events like karate, football, cheerleading, baseball, softball, and many others. We have a Maltese, a German shepherd, and a Maine Coon cat at home, and we do a lot of outside activities as well. My family is involved at church, where I teach Sunday school. When I have time, I enjoy reading, cooking, crocheting, and watching scary movies.
I have worked for Dr. Gina since 2000. When you hear Dr. Gina saying “mom” in the office, many heads turn, but she is usually asking for me. I’m here to assist patients with financial and insurance consultations, billing, and appointment scheduling, and I also manage our marketing and communication. Dr. Gina constantly strives to educate her patients to reach out to be the best they can be in all endeavors of their lives. That is the way she lives her life, and her aspirations are contagious to all of us in the office.
My husband Jim is the broker/owner of Jim Bishop & Associates Realtors. We spend time following our five granddaughters in all their sporting events. We also have two dogs, Poopsie and Shadow. I love to cook and play bridge.
Hi there! As an orthodontic assistant, my favorite part of my job is getting to know our patients! Patients starting braces are shy and not sure what to expect, but I always make sure you know exactly what we will be doing at each appointment, and in no time our conversations will be nonstop. When you get your braces off I will share in your excitement because I remember when mine were removed, and that is a day to “Smile Out Loud,” so I will smile with you! I really enjoy seeing the confidence that our patients have when they are finished with treatment.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with husband and two grown daughters, taking pictures of my grandchildren, sewing, and reading. I also have two dogs that are spoiled rotten.
My dad was a dentist for 20+ years. I always enjoyed helping out around his office and developed a passion for oral hygiene. I have been working as an orthodontic assistant for Dr. Pinamonti for almost 3 years. I really enjoy getting to know the patients and seeing their transformation during treatment.
When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my 2 daughters, Kersee and Annlynn, fiancé Brad and his 2 boys. I love traveling, taking road trips and anything that involves being outdoors. You can often find us camping, hiking, biking or enjoying sporting events.
I am married and have a wonderful 3 year old boy. My hobbies are fishing, sports and cars. I enjoy spending time with my family and working on cars with my little boy. I have recently returned to Dr Pinamonti's office after spending time working in general dentistry. I'm happy to be back in orthodontics with this amazing team of people that work day by day to make our patients "Smile Out Loud".
I am the newest addition to the Pinamonti Orthodontic team. Just like the other orthodontic assistants, I have been thoroughly trained in order to assist Dr. Pinamonti during all appointments. The environment here is so positive and I'm extremely thankful for the opportunity to work with such a fun and friendly team. I'm looking forward to the day I assist with debonding a patient and I can say "I remember assisting when you had your braces put on." It's as very rewarding feeling when you know you have contributed to someone's beautiful new smile! I am married and have a daughter Addilyn and we are patiently awaiting the arrival of our second child in February 2018.
I graduated from Coffeyville Community College with a degree in applied science and worked as a paramedic for 15 years in Crawford County before becoming a lab technician. My duties include creating appliances that Dr. Pinamonti requires. I design and fabricate each specifically to the individual patient. Some of the colors and designs they pick out are wild and crazy! On a personal note, I have recently finished my own orthodontic treatment and love the results. Ask me anything about the experience of braces, and I’ll be happy to answer your questions.
Outside of work, I love spending time with Amy and my family. I have two daughters, Molly and Josie, and stepchildren Brittany, Breannen, and Dylan. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and flying remote-controlled airplanes!
