Meet the Team
Joel J. Bickler, DDS
Dr. Bickler has been taking care of patients in the Big Bear area since 1984. With over 35 years of experience in dentistry, he is proficient in multiple specialties. Dentists in the area feel confident when referring their patients to him for specialized procedures. He is known for his gentle approach to dentistry, which is represented by his many generations of faithful anxiety-free patients.
His practice includes general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery (including all impactions and ridge preservations), endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, children’s dentistry, and nitrous oxide sedation. We are excited to announce that in the near future, Dr. Bickler’s practice will also include implant dentistry.
Dr. Bickler graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire with a B.S. in chemistry and a minor in math. He went on to study at Marquette University School of Dentistry and then served in the United States Air Force Dental Corps, where he attained the rank of captain. In addition to Dr. Bickler’s education in general dentistry, he continued his training for many years in orthodontics through the United States Dental Institute.
Alexis, office manager
Alexis is originally from New Orleans, and she studied at Houston Community College before pursuing her dental education at Concorde Garden Grove. She has received advanced training in coronal polishing, dental sealants, and radiography. Her favorite part of this job is being able to help Dr. Bickler improve all of the wonderful patients’ smiles!
Alexis’ family consists of her mom, her dad, and one younger brother. When she isn’t busy at work, she enjoys reading, working out, hiking, and attending her brother’s various sporting events. She actually attended modeling school in the 8th grade and is hoping to pursue it as a side hobby as well.
Jenny, Registered Dental Hygienist
Jenny has been working in the dental field for almost five years now, and she really enjoys building strong relationships with patients while also inspiring them to smile! Originally from Rialto, she attended college at West Coast University. She also speaks Spanish, which means she’s particularly great at caring for our bilingual patients.
Away from work, Jenny is married with two children and a dog. During her free time, she really enjoys riding her bike and hanging out with her loved ones. She’s the youngest of six, but the very first one to achieve a college degree!
