Diane joined the Bender Dental team in 2021. While fairly new to the dental world, she brings over 25 years of office management experience to the front office. She really enjoys getting to know each patient and building meaningful relationships with all of them.

Originally from Chicago, Diane, along with her husband, Adam, and their three children, moved to the great state of Texas in 2020. She spends most weekends cheering on her kids at tons of youth sports games and trying new restaurants around Fort Worth.



Office Administrative Coordinator

I began my career in dentistry in 1995 and I still enjoy helping to provide a great dental experience for each patient who visits our office. I am a native Texan and married to my high school sweetheart. I have two adult children an a grandson who I adore. I love spending time my family and friends.



Registered Dental Assistant

Tina’s dental career amazingly spans over 30 years and she has been working alongside Dr. Bender since 2018. A native Texan, her favorite part of this job is an easy answer: the phenomenal patients. She thinks it’s a joy to work in a dental office where the focus is on each patient’s unique, individual situation.

Tina and her husband Brooks have four children. Family is the most important thing to her, which is why she loves spending all her free time with them!



Dental Assistant

I have been a registered dental assistant since 2005. Everything about dentistry amazes me! To have the opportunity to build relationships with new people and to help them is my passion. I love that I can witness patients improved confidence by helping them improve their smile. I enjoy spending time traveling and being outdoors with my husband and daughter.



Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in New Mexico and now I am proud to be a Texan! My passion in dentistry is getting to know my patients on a personal level and educating them on how to maintain a healthy smile. My goal is to provide gentle and thorough care that make my patients at ease. I have two fur babies and a wonderful boyfriend. I enjoy traveling, making memories, and spending time with my family.



Dental Hygienist

Alena has been a dental hygienist for more than 20 years! She joined Dr. Bender’s amazing team in 2020. Her career has allowed her to help educate patients on healthy eating and dental habits to maintain a lifetime smile. A great smile gives people more confidence and she feels blessed to be part of making that happen.

In her free time, you’ll most likely find Alena gardening, fishing, and spending time with her family around a big camp fire.
