Lydia Jones

Office manager / Financial Coordinator

As an Office Manager and Financial Coordinator for over 15 years, I am very passionate about dentistry and caring for our patients. I have learned so much from working at Barnes Walton Dental Associates, Ltd. over the last 7 years. We all work together like a family; the energy in our office is uplifting and the synergy is great. Our team members are caring and supportive, and the patients are awesome. I believe in the vision of our practice and Dr. Barnes’ ethics and the high standards of care that she provides for our patients makes me proud of the work we do, not only inside the practice, but in the community as well.

On a personal note, I am blessed with a wonderful family. I love Sunday dinners with my loved ones. When I’m not in the office, I love helping my husband in his business. When it is time to relax my husband and I enjoy the movies, so I can give you a review of every new release!

Tomika Johnson - Flowers, RDH

Registered Dental Hygienist

18 years ago I walked through the doors of Barnes Walton Dental Associates as a Dental Assistant. With Dr. Barnes’ support and encouragement, I continued my education at the Kennedy King-UIC Dental Hygiene Program and became a Registered Dental Hygienist.

I love working with Dr. Barnes. She encourages continuing education beyond the basic licensing requirements. This allows our team to provide patients with total systemic wellness options and educating them on creating and maintaining healthy teeth, gums, and beautiful smiles. With the constant change in technology, I am learning and creating new services and oral hygiene solutions available to our patients.

At Barnes Walton Dental, we are committed to excellence in dental health, esthetics, education and community outreach. Dr. Barnes is constantly encouraging the team and as a result my career continues to flourish. I am pleased to announce my selection to the Colgate Oral Health Advisory Board. As part of a panel of 12 Hygienist, chosen from across the country, we were able to meet with the Scientist, and members of the Colgate Marketing Team. Having a chance to see the science and technology really put things into perspective. This has been one of the most exciting years in my career.

It’s rewarding to be a part of a dental practice that continues to advance, demands and provides excellence in dental care, while highlighting the importance of giving back.
