Meet The Team

Stephen

Practice Financial Officer

Hi everyone, I'm Stephen! I was raised on Long Island and moved to South Florida in 1994. Prior to working in dentistry, I sold small kitchen appliances to large retailers all over the country. Since we opened in 2002, I have been working here and love working with the children. My role has been to help grow this practice from the ground up, and we have thrived in the last 20 years and we are so very proud of where we are today. Dr. Bender and I have 3 amazing children, and have been married for the last 24 years and still growing every day. We support the Leukemia/Lymphoma society, Breast Cancer Awareness, and ALS/Alzheimer's organizations. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing and spending time with my family.

Jessenia

Practice Manager

Hey everyone, my name is Jessenia but people know me by Jess! I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. I have more than 10 years of dental experience and have been a part of the Bender crew for 6 years. I started here as a front desk administrator and have since been given the opportunity to manage the practice alongside Dr. Bender. I have a pretty impressive memory, so chances are I'd have remembered your name by now. I take pride in going above and beyond for every single family I encounter. In my spare time, I enjoy staying active, going to the gym, cooking, shopping, organizing, and spending time with my 4-year-old and fiance. I love ALL things crime and my ultimate dream would be to become a detective!

Andrea

Practice Administrator

Hello, my name is Andrea, I am originally from Boston, and I love my New England sports teams. Football Sundays are what I look forward to and yes, I will lose my voice from screaming. A goal of mine is to always make a difference, that first impression is always the most important one. Getting the opportunity to meet new people on a daily basis helps me grow into a better person. I am the proud mom of 3 young men who have grown up here and on their own, my husband is my best friend who makes me laugh every day. I love making memories with them by doing such things as going to concerts, a bit of thrifting, and eating adventures. Stepping out of my comfort zone 4 years ago entering the dental field has been a wonderful educational step, and I have learned so much from the team here at Little Teeth Big Smiles. As a mother, I understand how important it is for children to have healthy teeth and I admire how my philosophy aligns with Dr. Bender's.
