Dr. Ben Fishbein Orthodontist DrBen@EmeraldCoastBraces.com
I'm originally from Maryland and did my dental school training there. After completing dental school, I moved to Jacksonville, Florida to complete my Orthodontic Residency and Fellowship training. Soon after residency I earned my Board Certification in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics by the American Board of Orthodontics. In addition to serving my patients at Fishbein Orthodontics, I also serve on the board of the EscaRosa Dental Society and Florida Dental Association. I also have the privilege of lecturing to Orthodontic residency programs on Invisalign, Incognito (behind the teeth braces), and practice management. I live in the downtown Pensacola area with my wife Leah and our 2 dogs Holly (golden retriever) and Toby (long hair daschnund).
Amanda Chief Operating Officer Amanda@EmeraldCoastBraces.com>
I am originally from Fort Smith, Arkansas. I began my dental career in 1997, specializing in orthodontics/pedodontics since 1998. I began working at this practice in early 2012, and I am thrilled to be a part of such an incredible team! The most rewarding part of my job is meeting and developing relationships with all of my patients!
My husband Chris and I have three daughters, Kasey, Jenna, and Brilee. We enjoy living near the beach and love being closer to our families. I really enjoy working out and am very passionate about health and fitness. In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my family, being involved with our church, reading and spending time at the beach.
I am fortunate to have been working at this practice since September of 2001. My position as Scheduling Coordinator gives me the opportunity to meet every patient as they come to our office, and I even assist in the clinic when needed.
I have worked in the field of orthodontics since 1992. During my career in orthodontics, I have become certified by the National Board of Orthodontic Assisting and the Dental Assistant Expanded Functions in Orthodontics and have attended many continuing education courses.
In my spare time, I enjoy decorating, reading, spending time at the beach and being with my family. I have been married to my husband Brian since 1994 and we have three lovely children, Lindsey, Ella, and Owen.
The greatest aspects of my job are meeting new people, creating beautiful smiles and watching self-confidence build in each and every one of our patients.
Born and raised here in Florida, Lori joined the Fishbein Orthodontic team in 2015. With a friendly personality and ready smile, Lori has worked in the dental field, and more recently as a flight attendant. While she loves flying and enjoyed meeting new people every day, her desire for a sense of normalcy brought her back to the dental/orthodontic field. She is a wonderful asset to our team, and her favorite party of working here is being the first person to greet patients when they walk through the door! She and her boyfriend Kevin enjoy working out, spending time with family and friends, and going to the beach!
Nancy Financial Coordinator Nancy@EmeraldCoastBraces.com
I am originally from Okinawa, Japan but was raised in Arkansas, where my dad retired from the United States Air Force after 20 years. I graduated from Vilonia High School and received my B.B.A. in marketing at the University of Central Arkansas. I began my orthodontic career after college in 1997.
I have been a member of this great team since May 2014. As the financial coordinator, I have the opportunity to offer affordable payment options to our patients and answer any questions they may have about insurance. I work with an amazing group of people that make work incredibly enjoyable.
I recently married my husband, Jeff, in October 2014. I now have 3 wonderful sons, Matt, Derrick, and RJ. We also have 2 dogs, Cole and Ace. I enjoy going to the beach, cooking, drawing, and watching the Packers. GO PACK GO!
Kasey Treatment Coordinator Kasey@EmeraldCoastBraces.com
I have been a part of the Fishbein Orthodontics team since March of 2014. I am a Certified Orthodontic Assistant, but I work mostly with new patients. I am very passionate about orthodontics, and I love developing relationships with my patients. I am very thankful to be a part of such an amazing team!
I recently graduated Cosmetology School and love doing makeup in my spare time. Animals, traveling, and shopping are just a few of my favorite things!
Brittany joined the Fishbein Orthodonic team in early 2015. She had a very happy childhood growing up as an “Army kid” and has lived all over the world in places such as Germany, Tennessee, Texas, and now Florida. She graduated from PCC with a Bachelor of Science in Education, but luckily for us decided her true passion was in orthodontics! Brittany has an extremely happy and fun personality and is always smiling! Her favorite part of her job is meeting and developing relationships with all of our awesome patients! Brittany is extremely proud of her husband Kaleb who is a law enforcement officer. They love spending time with their “furbabies” Ace and Roscoe, and when not at work they can be found hanging out with friends and family and enjoying time at the beach!
- Dental Hygienist / Certified Orthodontic Assistant
I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and Certified Orthodontic Assistant for Fishbein Orthodontics. The favorite part of my job is working one-on-one with patients to help them achieve beautiful smiles, while also developing great relationships with these same patients throughout their treatment. My ultimate goal is to provide the highest quality of professional care and to treat the patient the way I would like to be treated.
I joined the practice on July 7, 1986 and have enjoyed being a part of its growth over the years and the excitement of the transition to Fishbein Orthodontics. Dr. Fishbein brings a new energy to the practice, which makes working fun!
A little personal history... I am a Pensacola native, graduated from Gulf Breeze High and from the Dental Hygiene Program at PJC in 1977. I am licensed to practice Dental Hygiene in the State of Florida. Before coming to work in this practice, I worked for a local pedodontist (children's dentist) for almost eight years. My husband, Chris, is a retired City of Pensacola Firefighter. We have two grown children, Lyndsey & Kent, son-in-law, Joe and granddaughter, Sydney. In my free time I enjoy sewing, embroidery, going to the beach and playing with our Weimaraner, "Georgia".
Thank you for the opportunity and privilege to serve you in your orthodontic needs!
