Maria Elena Tapia, DDS

I enjoy life, and I live it to the fullest with everything I do!  I surround myself with positive people and I hope to make a positive impact on others as well. One of the strongest values I have is honesty.  I believe it is instrumental for building strong relationships.

My name is Maria Elena Tapia and I welcome you to our practice. The person I am directly reflects the type of professional I have become.  A big part of my life is my dedication to my career and my dental family. My goal is to be your dental expert and exceed your expectations. It is my job to satisfy your needs and achieve your oral health.

The other part of my life is my personal family. My little boy named Maximo and now my adorable little girl Ellah  sweeten my life with their smiles.  I also enjoy sharing time with my soul mate! He has been my positive influence and support.
