Meet Our Dentists


Elmira Elahi, DMD

Elmira Elahi, DMD

Doctor of Medical Dentistry

Dr. Elahi did both her undergraduate and doctorate schooling at the University of Pittsburgh. It is here that she met her husband, Dr Joe, and conceived the notion of some day growing a dental practice together. Dr Elahi’s hobbies and interests are not so much tied to a particular activity, but more coupled to the personal connection she has with the people she is with.

“What do I do for fun?… Anything! Everything! I don’t really care what I’m doing as long as I’m surrounded by good friends and family while doing it.” From skydiving to atv riding, she rarely gets bored with life and is always willing to try something new. She loves nothing more than spending time with her family and in particular her daughter, Aiyla. Her vivacious and bouncy character are inviting qualities which welcome a calming sense of reassurance.
Joseph Shilkofski, DMD

Joseph Shilkofski, DMD

Doctor of Medical Dentistry

Dr. Joe, as he prefers to be called, did his schooling on the East Coast. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Vermont and his Doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. His desire to choose dentistry as a profession stems from his hobbies and interests.

“I guess I just like anything where I can work with my hands to express myself.” Whether its tinkering on motorcycles, building furniture, or drawing and painting, Dr Joe loves to create dusty messes in his garage. “It’s very gratifying to start with nothing but a vision and see it come to fruition and be proud of the result. I have always prided myself on attention to detail.” When he isn’t hiding out in the garage, he can be found with his daughter, wife, and dog enjoying their company and doing absolutely anything that gets them outside and smiling. Dr Joe is an avid oudoorsman who has a passion for snowboarding, motorcycles, and paddling out for a day of surfing.
