Office Manager, Angie

Hi!  I am our dental office manager. I will help you schedule appointments, review treatment plans, help make financial arrangements, and, if you have dental insurance, help you work with your insurance to maximize your benefits.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and a masters in Spanish linguistics. I attend classes in dentistry, pharmacology, and implant dentistry so that our office can serve you better.  


Treatment Coordinator, Ariza

Hi!  I have worked as both a dental assistant and office manager for over 10 years.  Currently, you'll find me most often at the front desk answering phones, answering questions about procedures and insurance, and coordinating your treatment.

I am a native Tucsonan. I graduated from Cholla High School and completed my assisting degree from Pima Medical Institute in 2007. I attend continuing education classes on dentistry, pharmacology, and office management.  In January 2015 I trained for and passed my exam for Coronal Polishing. 


Hygienist, Nichole

Hi! I am your dental hygienist. I work together with Dr. Chiara and Megan as a team to help you maintain your healthy smile. 

I love being a hygienist. I graduated from Amarillo College in 2002. I attend continuing education classes and stay current on research so that I can treat you with the highest standard of care and teach you about your dental condition. My goal is to work with you so we can maintain your oral health.  I look forward to seeing you and building a lasting relationship with you and your family.


Hygiene Assistant, Megan

I am the hygiene assistant. I will greet you in the waiting room and invite you back to the operatory. I take X-rays and review your medical history with you, as well as discuss any oral health concerns you might have. Then I will introduce you to Nichole, our hygienist, who will complete your head and neck exam and clean your teeth. Nichole and I work closely together to bring you the best possible care. Once your teeth are clean, I will come back in to complete your treatment. I will polish your teeth, help you schedule your next visit, and assist Dr. Chiara with his exam.

I'm a native Tucsonan. I graduated from Empire High School in 2010, and from Pima Community College in 2014 with a degree in dental assisting and coronal polishing.  I also attend continuing education classes in dentistry with an emphasis in periodontics.


Treatment Coordinator, Addie

Hi!  When you come back for treatment, Jensine or I will meet you in the waiting room and stay with you till the end of your visit.  We can answer your questions about all of the procedures Dr. Chiara performs, so please ask us! 

I was born and raised mostly in California and came to Tucson during high school. I graduated high school here in Tucson and then went on to train as a Dental Assistant at Carrington College and completed my certificate in 2015.  I completed my exams for my coronal polishing certificate in 2016.  I really enjoy working in the dental field and I love attending continuing education classes and learning new things.  Most recently we've been training in orthodontics, which I love!


Treatment Coordinator, Jensine

Hi!  I was born in Okinawa, Japan, but I call Tucson my hometown.  I graduated from Santa Rita High School and completed a Dental Assisting degree with Pima Medical Institute.  I spent my first few years working in an orthodontic office, but I was looking for an office that provided a wider variety of procedures and I'm happy to have found Dr. Chiara and Chiara Dental.  Since coming here I've learned about oral surgery, implants, endodontics, CADCAM dentistry, and of course basic fillings and crowns.  I've recently completed my Coronal Polish Certification, and I look forward to continuing to learn and grow.

We love our Dental Team!
