Dr. Rod Ellison

Dr. Ellison graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1978.

Until five years ago he maintained a solo dental practice in Yakima, WA, where he and his wife raised their two children. Five years ago they returned to their native state where most of their families still live. They live in St. Helena. He enjoys architecture, skiing, cycling, cooking and of course, dentistry.

“I love the hands-on aspects of dentistry, the relationships built over time, and that I have the opportunity to affect a person’s life in a positive healthful way, everyday! My patients place their trust in me to care for their oral health. I am grateful every day for that trust and confidence in my knowledge and skills. I get to come to work, meet and associate with all kinds of interesting people, work with and be supported by a great team. At the end of the day I feel I’ve done some good when I see a patient leave our office with the confidence to show off their smile.”
