Elsa spends a lot time keeping up with the changes in the dental field, especially with procedure codes, insurance patterns, patient relations, and helping to remind the doctors where they need to be and when. She enjoys meeting with new patients and catching up with patients we have established relationships with. Elsa graduated from UTSA with a degree in Architecture, but now she considers her “second degree” to be in the ever-evolving dental field.
