Tracy Duran

I am the Office Manager at Elite Dental Care. Born and raised in the Antelope Valley, I’ve loved watching how much our town has expanded and grown over the years. I’ve been working in the dental field for 14 years of which I’ve been at this office for 7 years now. I enjoy doing what I do as I like to see patients leave excited and happy with bright smiles.

Outside of my work, I love spending time with my three handsome boys. Being the mother to my boys is one of the greatest feelings when you feel like you are the center of their Universe. Besides my family, I love going on adventures, watching horror movies. On behalf of the Elite Dental Care Team, I welcome you to a very pleasing experience in our office.

I have been working at Elite Dental Care since 2014 and was promoted to back-office shift leader in late 2017. During my childhood years, I always envisioned myself in this career. I am very passionate about my profession especially when it comes to helping others and at the end of the day seeing my patients satisfied with my performance. I enjoy shopping, listening to music and spending time with family and friends. I’m also a BTS Army.

Helping people smile is one of my favorite things to do working as an RDA. My goal at Elite Dental Care is to ensure my patients feel comfortable and happy during their dental visit. I’m happy to be a part of those helping our community.

I have been a dental assistant since 2015 and joined Elite Dental Care beginning of 2018. It has been a great experience working with the staff as we can all count on each other. I really enjoy what I do considering every day is something different. My favorite part about my job is being able to make patients feel comfortable when sitting on the dental chair. Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and my two kids.

I'm the treatment coordinator at Elite Dental Care. I've been in the Dental field since 2007, when I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Saharan. I've been at Elite Dental since 2018. What I like most about my job is being able to help our patients. Educating them about the treatment they need and answering any questions they may have about their dental benefits. I'm here to help them every step of the way.

When I'm not at work, I'm out and about with my 2 beautiful daughters. They definitely keep my husband and I busy, and we love it. Our oldest plays soccer and flag football and our little one plays soccer and t-ball. We're also huge football fans, GO RAMS!! When we're not out on the field we love visiting San Diego every chance we get.
