Stephanie Ramirez, R.D.A.
Stephanie or "Steph" is the shortest member of our team at 5 feet tall "On a good day with heels." She joined the practice in 2004 and quickly secured a permanent position as Dr. Bennett's lead dental assistant. A resident of Homestead, Florida, she makes the 30 minute commute to our Key Largo office 5 days a week. In 2006, she attended Nova Southeastern University and became certified for expanded duty dental assisting functions. She continues to attend the latest dental education courses to stay a step ahead of her peers. Aside from being certified to operate the E4D crown milling machine, which allows her to fabricate permanent crowns for patients while they wait, she is a master at creating temporary crowns and bridges.
During her time away from the office she enjoys spending time with her two dogs: Ike and Bells, her nieces and nephews as well as her fiancé, Mike.
Leslie Scanlon, R.D.A.
Leslie joined our dental family in January of 2014. She quickly became popular with our long-time patients and has a special rapport with children. At 22 years old, she is an "old soul" who exudes positive energy even when her day is hectic.
After attending Nova Southeastern University for an expanded duties course for dental assistants (and some coaching from Stephanie), Leslie can give any seasoned dentist a run for his money when fabricating temporary crowns. Aside from her dental talents, Leslie is an accomplished singer/songwriter who plays guitar, drums and piano. She taught music at Jekeaa Music in Riverside, California from 2008 to 2012 to students of all age ranges.
Originally from Riverside, California, Leslie resides in Tavernier, Florida, with her boyfriend Ryan and their 2 Chihuahuas Marlie and DC. Her immediate family including her mom, dad and older brother live nearby which makes South Florida feel even more like "home."
