Friendly Faces You Will See at Elevate Dental

When Emily isn’t charming you with her megawatt smile, she enjoys chilling out on the weekends with her fiance, and has a passion for fishing.


Bubbly and bright, you’ll meet Tayla at our clinics as one of our incredible dental assistants. Tayla is a true problem solver, happy to help and teach clients more about oral health.
