I have searched the internet using 4 different plant ID. Sites and have not been able to identify this beautiful plant growing in a dental office. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, CD.

Due to the leaf shape, growth habit, and glossiness, I'm getting a "croton" (either a hybrid member of the enormous Croton genus or one from the the less common (to me, at least) Codaeium variegatum species). The yellow variegation is more in line with C. variegatum than any of the hyrids I've seen, though.

If I'm correct, then the plant is being grown in too much shade/not enough indirect light, which is why the leaves are so green. The site given in the first link (sosplantcare.com/croton-care/) confirms this and includes this photo showing that effect.
