Our very own Elly was born in Panama and is fluent in English, Spanish and Greek.
In 1986, Elly graduated from Concord Dental School as a dental assistant and began working as Dr. Andy’s in 1989, at a time when Downtown Dental Associates had only one other assistant, Kim.
In 1995, Elly left us to be a stay-at-home mom. After her four boys were in school, Elly decided to take her education to a new level by going back to school. This time she went to FCCJ to become a dental hygienist. In 2003, she returned to Downtown Dental Associates and with just one short break, she’s been here ever since, working only on Fridays.
Of her 21-year marriage, Elly credits the success on not taking things too seriously and laughing!
Elly’s patients drive her by watching their dental health improve.
“Through education and understanding, it’s rewarding to see the patients turning their dental health around. It’s so good to see improvements and advancements,” said Elly.
By the way, Elly’s favorite toothpaste is Colgate Optical White!
