Tiffany Jarrell

Practice Manager

Nothing at Aspire Dental Wellness would be possible without our experienced practice manager – Tiffany Jarrell. She’s a critical part of our team that ensures everything in the office goes according to plan and all our patients leave happy and satisfied. Tiffany has been working in dentistry ever since 2002, after receiving her degree in Business Administration. She became a dental assistant in 2006 and fell in love with the profession. She’s found true passion in dentistry and even went back to school to broaden her knowledge and get educated on the clinical side of dentistry as well. 

When she’s not making sure everything in the office runs smoothly, Tiffany enjoys gardening, reading, traveling all around the world, and, most importantly – spending time with her lovely family. Tiffany has a wonderful husband and six beautiful children aged from 11 to 24. Even with full hands on deck at work and a busy life at home, Tiffany finds the time to cook and entertain friends and family on a regular basis. She’s very proud of the garden she’s grown over the summer, especially of the 15-foot sunflowers and delicious cucumbers and tomatoes.

Alessandra Marquez

Lead Dental Assistant

Alessandra Marquez is an extremely valuable part of our team. She’s our lead dental assistant, with the main responsibility of helping our beloved Dr Sladjana Bjelac during any kind of procedure. A lead dental assistant is in charge of organizing the instruments and maintaining everything in order, so that the doctor can perform treatments quickly and smoothly, without any issues, allowing our patients to spend as little time as possible in the dental chair. Alessandra is Venezuelan and a mother of twins. Outside of work, she enjoys spending quality time with her lovely family, traveling, dancing, and eating.

Durga Sakthivel

Dental Assistant

Durga Sakthivel is another dental assistant in our practice, a true team player, and a valuable asset to our family at Aspire Dental Wellness. As our dental assistant, one of her responsibilities is helping and supporting patients with dental anxiety through their procedures.

Durga was originally born and raised in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, before moving to America in 2012 to further pursue education as a dental assistant. Before moving to Charlotte, NC, she previously lived in Washington State. Durga finished undergraduate studies in India and enrolled in a dental assisting program in Seattle. Once the workday comes to an end, she enjoys hiking, going to group fitness classes at the gym, and spending time with friends and family.
