Dr. Elliott grew up south of Boise (in Orange County, CA…. shhh… Don’t tell anybody). After playing college soccer and graduating summa cum laude from Houghton College in Houghton, NY, Dr. Elliott graduated top 5 from Creighton University Dental School in Omaha, NE. She moved to North Idaho as soon as she could. Dr. Elliott loves helping her patients not only smile but sleep better too! When she is not working (which is a lot just ask her family), she loves to spend time with her family of 3 boys (her husband Tom included!), playing soccer, golfing, and reading.
Dr. Elliott is also a national speaker and educator on the very important topic of sleep apnea and has been published in many dental journals. She loves to help general dentists extend this life-saving service to their patients. She is an active member of her local American Dental Association, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and is the past president and a diplomate of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy.
