The Personal Side
Hello! My name is Elise. I grew up in Bethesda, MD, lived in the Bronx, NY for college, and have lived in Baltimore, MD for the last 6 years during dental school and orthodontic residency. I am proud and humbled to be a part of a large family of dentists, and have worked alongside my father, Dr. Tigani, since I was 16 years old. To say I am excited to finally join my role model in practice would be an understatement! I met Dr. Endres while in dental school, and could not be luckier to also practice alongside my husband (he is secretly my role model as well but don’t tell him that)!
I think it’s safe to say I love spending time with my family whether it’s at home or at work. Because of such a strong family foundation, I also consider all my patients family as well. There is nothing I enjoy more than being able to develop relationships with my patients while being able to play a role in their oral health care. You can always count on me to make it a top priority to help you feel as comfortable as possible and (try) to make you laugh while addressing all your dental needs. When I’m out of the office, you can find me trying to stop my crazy pups, Tucker and Lily, from playing tug of war, and escaping to the beach or the slopes!
