Elizabeth Amador

Hey there. I’m your financial info person, insurance liaison, and advocate. I’m available every step of the way to put you at ease and give you an understanding of what’s to come. I enjoy doing whatever I can to support and assist patients so let me know what I can do for you.

When I was a kid I tried not to smile because I was embarrassed by my big, crooked teeth. I’m thankful to my parents and my childhood dentist for getting my mouth to good health and good shape. Now I smile freely. I hope you feel the same way and if you don’t right now then let’s get you there!
