Meet The Staff

Abby Benin, Surgical Assistant

Abby moved to Juneau from the Philippines when she was eight years old.  As a high school student, she had the opportunity to job shadow dental hygienists and quickly realized how interested she was in dentistry.  She graduated from high school in the spring of 2012 and began attending UAS the following fall with the intention of becoming a dental hygienist.  Abby began working as a dental assistant with Dr. Schultz in the summer of 2012.  Her favorite part about the job is the valuable skills and experience she is gaining and the opportunity to work with such a friendly staff.  When not working or in school, Abby enjoys cooking and being outside, hiking, kayaking and spending time with her friends and family.

Josie Beck, Surgical Assistant

Josie Beck originally hails from North Seattle, and later moved to the St. Louis area where she met and married her husband in 2008. They moved to Juneau in 2011, after visiting some of Josie’s relatives and falling in love with the beauty and wildness of Alaska, and uniqueness of Juneau. When she isn’t working for Southeast Dental Group, Josie enjoys exploring and camping with her family, which now includes two very active children. She recently enrolled in online college classes to finish her last few credits needed to receive her BA in Communications. While most of her work history has been in retail management and changing diapers, working in the dentistry field has always been a dream of hers. She enjoys the variety of work, level of professionalism and friendliness displayed at SEDG, and especially loves working with the people. Josie has been trying to catch the tooth fairy since she was three years old and hopes the extra teeth she collects at work finally gets her over the edge!
