September was a big month for the Susan Ellison team! Not only was Dr. Ellison able to attend a global seminar in Madrid, but we celebrated Iris Alfaro’s 2nd Anniversary!
Iris is our scheduling coordinator, but her background in dentistry goes way back! For the last 6 years, Iris has spent time as a dental assistant but realized she loved dental administration and has really flourished in our office. She brings a lot of knowledge and fun to the team – here’s a bit more about her.
Q & A with Iris Alfaro
Q: Why did you decide to work at the front desk for a dental office?
A: I love working with patients directly to help them get the best benefits they can from their insurance.
Q: Did you have a favorite dentist when you were a kid?
A: I did! My pediatric dentist made me wonder what it would be like to work in a dental office.
Q: If you could be a tooth, which one would you be?
A: I would be a front anterior tooth like #8 because it is one of the first ones you see!
Q: What is your favorite flavor of toothpaste?
Q: If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
A: Los Angeles because the weather is amazing!
Q: Where did you grow up?
A: Right here in Houston, Texas!
Q: Mountains or beaches?
A Note from Dr. Ellison
“Iris has shown so much growth in the past two years. She transitioned from being a dental assistant in her previous employment to being our Insurance Coordinator and has done an amazing job for our office and our patients. She has shown that she can adapt to any new challenges in her path & is also able to handle multiple tasks at the same time. We love having her here!” – Dr. Ellison
