Dr. Elosta was supposed to be an engineer until a friend in dental school fascinated him with her tooth creation from morphology class. He realized that dentistry offered a creative component as well as an opportunity to work with people in a meaningful way, and his decision was made.
After graduating dental school in 2000, Dr. Elosta completed a two year general practice residency at Louisiana State University, School of Dentistry. Later, he moved to Virginia Beach to join a large group practice and became one of the lead doctors. Dr. Elosta has completed advanced training in several fields including a one year post graduate program in implant dentistry from Georgia Regents University School of Dentistry, training to become a preferred provider for Invisalign orthodontics, and completing advanced learning seminars in cosmetic dentistry. His continual quest for education resulted in receiving the fellowship award of the Academy of general dentistry that is attained after completing over 500 hours of hands-on participation and lecture courses. Dr. Elosta is also an active member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the State of Virginia Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.
Outside the office, Dr. Elosta enjoys running, playing racquetball and spending time with his beautiful wife Radwa and their two girls Nadine and Layla.
