Jessica Lucero

Jessica Lucero

I have been in the dental field for 8 years and have been doing ortho for 7 years. I am originally from Albuquerque, NM. 

I love spending time with my family and exploring new places. My hobbies are my plants, art, and I enjoy hiking with my family. 

I am passionate about Orthodontics because I love watching the confidence build in my patients as their teeth get straighter throughout their treatments. 

A fun fact about me is that I love thrift shops.

Kieara Miller

Even though my name is Kieara, people around here call me “Kiki!”

I have been a Pediatric dental assistant for 11 years, and 10 of those years I have been chair side with Dr. Bienstock. I have been an ortho assistant for 5 years.

I am originally from California. I am left handed, but in dentistry, I do everything right handed, so I am ambidextrous!

In my free time, I love playing volleyball, roller skating, going to the gym and spending time with my family.

I have two puppies named Ace and Lola who I love to play with!

Erica Rankin

Operations Manager

Hello! My name is Erica. I have been in dentistry since 1997. I have worked in all areas of dental. I started as an Oral Surgery Assistant. I am passionate about dentistry and helping patients love to smile, and oral health is very important to me.

I am originally from Chicago, Illinois, and have lived in Arizona for 13 years now. My husband Matt is originally from Arizona. In our spare time we enjoy Nascar, and checking out escape rooms and haunted houses with our friends. And fun fact… I am a huge Disney fan!

We have 2 wonderful pets, our dog Coco who we rescued in 2020, and our kitten Chase who we found alone outside. They are both living their best lives now.
