Meet Our Team
Elliot Rand, D.D.S
I have always dreamed of building a dental practice which would be able to provide patients with care at a single office that would meet all their dental needs. Patient care not only entails being able to perform the dentistry, but understanding the patient's needs from their smile to their inner spirit.
As a dentist, I have had the opportunity to help people in so many different ways. This means the world to me and for it I am eternally thankful and blessed. It's incredible that I have had the chance to travel to remote places world-wide and provide health care education to children.
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from Howard University College of Dentistry in 1987. Since my graduation I have completed many continuing education courses and obtained certifications in many advanced dental procedures. I am involved in the latest advances in cutting-edge dental technology and materials.
In my spare time I enjoy photography, cycling, and yoga. I am a proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project.
