Dr. Iana Elledge, DMD

Born and raised in Ukraine, Dr. Iana received a Bachelor’s degree in Physiology and Chemistry from San Jose State University in 2013; she later received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Tufts University of Dental Medicine in 2019. After graduating, Dr. Iana moved to Austin, TX, to begin her journey as a dentist. 

While working as a clinician, Dr. Iana recognized various challenges in the field of dentistry. She felt that to disrupt the profession and bring about positive change, she needed to open her own practice. This realization led to the concept of aesthetic wellness and the creation of Glint, a place where she could provide comprehensive and cosmetic state-of-the-art dental care in an elegant, relaxed environment. 

Her vision is to create a space that patients can look forward to visiting, unlike the cold, sterile environments typical of many dental offices. Through her practice and approach to dentistry, Dr. Iana hopes to inspire a movement she calls positive dentistry. Her goal is to help patients understand the true value of a healthy authentic smile while making dental care a positive, enjoyable experience. 

In addition to her extensive expertise as a clinician and her work at Glint, Dr. Iana has trained at The Kois Center in Seattle for several years, where she’s learning about the latest advances in aesthetic, implant, and restorative dentistry. One of the most prestigious dental programs in the world, she’s looking forward to graduating next March. As she’s passionate about aesthetic dentistry and helping her patients discover their best selves, Dr. Iana travels regularly to stay current with cutting-edge practices from the world’s top dental educators.  

Outside her practice, Dr. Iana enjoys traveling, and spending time with her family. She is also a huge advocate for mental and physical health and has been really enjoying contrast therapy as of late.
