Elsa Nordahl
General Dentist

About Me

Born and raised in Vancouver, WA, Dr. Nordahl spent nine years working as a Registered Nurse at Southwest Washington Medical Center prior to becoming a dentist. She made the career switch because she found dentistry challenging and interesting with ongoing learning, diverse cases, and rewarding work.

She enjoys interacting with her patients and has a great passion for improving their oral health. Dr. Nordahl is committed to excellence and practices with a gentle touch and cutting edge technology. She appreciates that her work combines a high level of training and technical reasoning with manual dexterity and artistry.

Dr. Nordahl received her Bachelor’s degree in General Science from Portland State University, and her D.M.D. degree from Oregon Health & Science University. Some of her personal hobbies include hiking, skiing, traveling, photography, and floral arrangement. She loves to learn about and experience new things, people, places, cultures, and food.
