Dr. Garth Eliason completed his BSc at the University of Calgary, continuing his studies by graduating with his DDS (with distinction) at the University of Western Ontario. Dr. Eliason initially joined a family dental practice in central Alberta for 5 years before moving to Kelowna in 2014.
Upon arriving in the Okanagan, Dr. Eliason served as one of the staff dentists at Kelowna's Gospel Mission and most recently with the team at Lakeshore Dental, where he really enjoys working in such a relaxed and caring environment.
In addition to private practice, Dr. Eliason has a passion for outreach to the underserviced and marginalized, which has motivated him to care for people in places such as Northern Canada, Central/South America, and East and West Africa. He is inspired by how dentistry can be a tool for serving others and a gateway for improving quality of life around the world.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Eliason and his wife love chasing around their 2 young boys, and try their best to enjoy the great outdoors whenever time and energy allows!
