Dr. Samuel Escarsega, DDS
Dr Samuel A. Escarsega, DDS, (better known at the office as Dr. E) wasn't born in Texas but got here as fast as he could. In 2001, Dr E moved here to beautiful San Antonio from Tucson AZ. Having worked for Office Depot since 1990 Dr. E decided to leave the office supply retail business and return to college to pursue dentistry. He completed his undergraduate education in 2005 at the University of Texas at San Antonio graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in biology. He then completed his dental education at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School, the number one ranked dental school in the nation. During dental school Dr. E felt a calling to serve his country and joined the US Navy. At graduation Dr. E was commissioned as a Lieutenant Naval Dental Corp Officer and was assigned to 32nd Street Naval base and Balboa Hospital in San Diego for additional post graduate training and subsequently received a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. Dr. E was fortunate enough to be able to return to beautiful San Antonio and fulfill his commitment to the US Navy at Joint Base San Antonio Fort Sam Houston. In addition to being a bit of a dental nerd, he is a huge Spurs fan, Dallas Cowboys fan, UTSA Roadrunner fan and UA Wildcat fan. More importantly, Dr. E has three beautiful daughters who fill his world with love and remind him to make every day count.
Brittany has been in the dental field for five years. Although she has only been with Highland Hills Dental Center for one year, she has made the office a brighter place. When she isn’t at work, she attends school in the evenings, spends time with her family and her cherished fur baby, June. Brittany’s wealth of insurance knowledge, excellent customer service and personal dental experiences play a major role in helping patients understand their dental needs and find better solutions to receive their needed dental care. She is a joy to work with and we are blessed to have her at Highland Hills Dental Center.
Registered Dental Assistant
Natalie comes all the way from the great blue grass state of Kentucky. Her country charm and quick wit makes her a pleasure to work with. With her Father being a dentist as well, you can see dentistry runs in her blood and shows in her work. She has been with Dr. Escarsega for two years now and it has been rewarding seeing her grow into the dental assistant she is today. Ms. McLean’s passion for the dental field has also encouraged her to further her education and pursue a career in Dental Hygiene. It has been great having Natalie as a part of our team here at Highland Hills Dental Center and it's clear to see she has a bright future ahead of her.
