Office & Staff

The Chari Family Dentistry team continues to grow thanks to our wonderful patients serving as our referral base.  We truly appreciate the confidence our patients have in us.

Our front office team consists of Brenda, Sara & Bernadette.

Brenda is our dental claims specialist who has 25+ years of experience in the dental field.  She started off as a dental assistant and has promoted to a front office position over the years.   Her combined back and front office experience lends itself to a comprehensive understanding of helping patients understand the dental work they’re receiving and helps in getting claims processed. Brenda  helps with scheduling and treatment planning as it relates to your dental appointments and is able to answer any questions you may have regarding such.  Brenda exudes a calm and reassuring demeanor to the dental office experience.

Sara is part of our front office team filling the role of operations manager ensuring that our practice runs as smoothly as possible from both the patients’ as well as the staffs’ perspective while paying attention to “all of the little details.”  She will ensure that we’re all doing our part to work efficiently and make your experience, as well as ours, the best it can be.  She will look for ways to improve our work environment and your patient experience so we all leave our office smiling!  Sara helps with scheduling, treatment planning, as well as the medical and dental claims process. Sara’s positive attitude and good energy are contagious!

Bernadette is our medical claims specialist who is talented in organizing and handling your medical claims to ensure maximum results.   Her goal is to ensure that you, the patient, have a full understanding of your recommended treatment plan, how your medical/dental benefits are applied to your treatment plan, and what, if any, your financial obligation will be, including any deductibles and co-insurance.  She will ensure that you have the necessary scripts needed prior to your scheduled surgery date and answer any of your questions.  She is cross-trained with 30+ years of experience and has an excellent working knowledge of dental procedures and patients’ needs.

Our back office is equally as proficient as the front.  Bernadette is our registered dental hygienist with 30+ years of dental hygiene experience.  She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Detroit and is licensed in Dental Hygiene for both Arizona and Michigan.  She partners with Dr. Chari, her husband, to help grow their thriving dental practice.  She enjoys physical fitness, fashion, spending time with her family, and connecting with her patients.  In her spare time…….”What’s that?”  No spare time!

Christi is our tenured and certified dental assistant who has been with us for 11 years now. She is a native of Arizona and graduated from The Bryman School with an Associates Degree in Science.  She brings to our office exceptional assisting skills as well as a calm demeanor to the chairside experience.

Ashley is our auxiliary dental assistant who graduated from The Bryman School.  She is going on 4 years of dental assisting experience and is quite the team player.  Her primary focus is assisting on dental procedures and helping with patient scheduling.   She doesn’t hesitate to help out wherever she is needed.

And there you have it.  Combined we have over 50+ years of dental experience lending ourselves to creating a professional, nurturing, and compassionate environment in the field of dentistry while simultaneously achieving the desired result in overall dental/medical health and patient smiles.

Please do not hesitate to tell us how we are doing and if there is any way  in which we can improve your experience here at our office.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
