The Montana Center for Laser Dentistry is proud to announce that Dr. Kalli Elford has joined the team. Dr. Kalli is a Montana native. In fact, Dr. Dave Dodrill and Dr. Kalli grew up in the same small Montana town of Twin Bridges and have been friends for many years. Dr. Kalli graduated from Montana State University and attended Dental School at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon where she graduated with High Honors and was a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national dental honor society.
Dr. David M. Dodrill received his D.D.S. degree cum laude in 2007 from the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. His second-year dental laboratory classes were actually audited at the Universidad de Costa Rica – all in the Spanish language with fellow Costa Rican dental students. He is also a graduate of the Advanced General Dentistry Program at Idaho State University.
Since 1998, his freshman year at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia, Dr. Dodrill has been involved in the dental profession in some capacity, as a student, employee, or volunteer. His understanding of both dental techniques and dental office management are extensive.
In 2008, after completing the Advanced General Dentistry Program, Dr. Dodrill joined a private dental practice (treating general as well as pediatric patients) in Kalispell, Montana. Then, he moved back to Virginia in 2009 and worked with a private practice in Charlottesville that specializes in multiple areas of patient treatment.
In November of 2011, we were thrilled to welcome Dr. Dodrill to the Montana Center for Laser Dentistry. Dr. Dodrill is certified in the following areas: A.C.L.S., VCU Rotary Endo, nitrous oxide, and Invisalign. He has volunteered with many dental outreach programs, including some with the Special Olympics and Give Kids a Smile Day. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Dodrill enjoys skiing, fly-fishing, hiking, koi ponds, athletics, travel, and his family.
