Andrea

Dental Assistant

Welcome! I’m Andrea and I love helping children overcome their fears of coming to the dentist with lots of Tell-Show-DO and an introduction of all the helpers. Working in our office, I assist Dr. Covington with procedures. It’s really rewarding to earn a child’s trust and to get a big, happy smile at the end of a visit!

Most of my free time is spent with loved ones: my husband, three daughters, one son, and five wonderful grandchildren. We have a pitbull and an Australian shepherd who are part of our family, too.

Ebony

Administrative Assistant

Hi and welcome! I’m Ebony and I am happiest when I’m answering parent’s questions about treatment or insurance coverage. Helping them understand everything makes them feel better and they can focus on their children. I greet and check in patients, verify insurances, answer the phones, and schedule appointments. Seeing patients grow up and sharing in their lives is a lot of fun!

I moved to Greenville from Columbia, SC, in 2015. My husband Aaron and I married in 2018 and we recently moved to the Greer area. No children in the picture, yet, but we would love to be a family of four someday! I enjoy traveling and trying new things everywhere I go, whether that’s different foods or activities. When I’m not traveling, I enjoy getting together with friends and hanging out in downtown Greenville. I am a huge family-oriented person and a dog lover, too.

Lonnie

Patient Relations Coordinator

Welcome to Tyger River Pediatric Dentistry! My name is Lonnie and I enjoy meeting and working with the wonderful families in the community. I greet patients and families when they arrive, schedule appointments, and process financial and insurance paperwork. Being part of providing positive dental visits, and seeing growing smiles, is an amazing experience!

I really enjoy working with my wife, Dr. Lenora Covington, daily, and love spending time with our son. I also like playing golf, cornhole, and traveling. By the way, I’m a true Carolina Gamecock fan!

Regina

Certified Dental Assistant

Hello! I’m Regina and I love talking with kids and getting to know them. I work chairside, assisting Dr. Covington with procedures while chatting with our patient about what we’re doing. I also take impressions and pour models for appliances. Sometimes children are worried about what’s going to happen, so I listen and explain everything in non-threatening words. Big smiles at the end of a procedure, when a patient is proud of how well they’ve done, are the best!

I love football – my team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Also, I am a wife to Wayne and have two boys, Courtney and Cameron, who are now men but still my babies. My favorite color is pink, I love pizza and ice cream, and if I didn’t already mention it, my team is the Steelers!


Andrea

Rosa

Administrative Assistant

Hi and welcome! I’m Rosa and I look forward to meeting you and your family. I love seeing children’s smiles after getting their teeth cleaned and getting their prize at the end of their appointment! I handle phone calls, help schedule appointments for cleanings or treatment, and verify insurances. Our office is a big family and I know you’ll feel at home here!

I was born in Texas but have lived in South Carolina for about 20 years. I have a beautiful daughter and a sweet dog. My daughter and I love time together, especially traveling. We also love attending professional soccer matches whenever they’re in town. Before COVID-19 hit, I spent Fridays volunteering at my daughter’s school.


Tiara

Tiara

Certified Dental Assistant

Welcome to Tyger River Pediatric Dentistry! My name is Tiara and I really like developing relationships with patients; I’m excited to get to know your children and you! I seat and prepare patients for treatment, help Dr. Covington chairside, teach patients about dental hygiene, and take X-rays. I also help with infection control by sterilizing and disinfecting instruments. It’s rewarding to be part of a team that helps children grow up with happy and healthy smiles!

I am very family-oriented and love spending my free time with my son and daughter. I also like listening to music, learning new things, exploring different restaurants, and trying new foods.

I am excited to welcome you and your family to Tyger River Pediatric Dentistry! I have been a dental assistant since 2007 and joined Dr. Covington’s team in 2013.

I really enjoy seeing how happy a little one can be when they have a great appointment!
