Dental Hygienists

Joleen Barrett

Registered Dental Hygienist and Front Office Manager

Joleen moved to the Florida Keys 23 years ago.  She absolutely loves the Keys life and salt air.  After graduating from Broward College as a Certified Dental Assistant, Joleen went back to school to become a Registered Dental Hygienist in 1995. When Joleen started working for Dr. Bennett 13 years ago it was a perfect fit.  Because she is a stickler for details, Joleen is now our “go to” person for overseeing and managing our busy front office.  When she is not in the office, Joleen enjoys spending time in the back country fishing and everything Everglades.  If she isn’t working you can find her either camping, hiking, fishing or boating.
