A Message from Dr. Ellison

We are excited to introduce our new amazing hygienist, Iris Perez, to our practice! She is one of the most thorough yet gentle hygienists I have ever had clean my teeth and we are fortunate to have her in our office as our hygienist. Long-time patients who had their teeth cleaned by Iris during her working interview called us back later to tell us we should hire her! And we did! She is kind and personable and loves her cute dog, Pickles. We can’t wait for you to meet her.

-Dr. Susan Ellison
