Lena Benitez

Clinical Assistant

I am a clinical assistant with over 13 years of experience in oral surgery and dentistry.  I love the friendly and professional environment offered here at Panacea Dental.  My focus is on helping patients optimize their dental health and make sure their smile dreams come true.  Dentistry is my passion and you will see it through when you are in the chair with me!  Outside of the office I love traveling with my beautiful family!  My weekends are filled with long walks and baking delicious desserts.  

Betty Arriaga

Clinical Assistant

I have been part of Panacea Dental since June 2023 but have been an assistant for over 6 years.  I love to expand my knowledge and my ultimate goal is to become a Registered Dental Hygienist.  Although I enjoy work days with my Panacea Dental family and patients, I love spending time with my family and friends.  Lastly, I have the most adorable 6 year old pug Pico. Hope to see you soon!

Martha Model

Registered Hygienist

I graduated from Southern Illinois University many moons ago.  I’m so grateful I chose my profession and what a joy it still provides.  Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and baking for my family – new recipes are always fun.  In the warmer months, I like to get dirty working at our plant nursery. While it is physically demanding, it’s gratifying.

Kirsten Jura

Office Manager

I started my dental career as a Dental Assistant and have moved to Office Manager.  I love knowing each patient when they arrive and getting to know them on a personal level and to help them with their dental needs.  Outside of the office I have a wonderful husband and four great bonus children and two dogs Lily and Frank.  I also enjoy travel, baking, and with the extra free time you will find me on a pickleball court somewhere!

Hannah Hardy

Registered Hygienist

I found my dental passion when I went on a medical/dental trip to Africa when I was 16 years old.  I knew I wanted to learn about oral health and be able to educate and help prevent dental disease.  I love my patients and my job as a dental hygienist.  I have been a part of the Panacea Dental family for just over a year and have been a hygienist for 5 years.  I love to make dental visits as enjoyable and comfortable as possible for my patients as coming to the dentist is not a favorite place for most individuals.  When I am not in the office I love spending time with my husband, three kids, two dogs and a turtle.
