About Us : Anthony P. Eltink, D.M.D., M.S.

Dr. Eltink is a native of Wisconsin, and stayed in the Midwest for his undergraduate studies at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. While in college he continued to pursue his love of music as a member of the university’s "Band of the Fighting Irish," and was able to follow the school's football team around the country and around the world performing in such venues as the Fiesta Bowl, the Orange Bowl and Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland. He was also a member of the "Skalcoholiks," a ska band that rocked the campus music scene for two years.

After receiving his Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) as a double major in psychology and pre-professional studies from Notre Dame, Dr. Eltink continued his studies at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He graduated as the valedictorian of the class of 2002, receiving his Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree and earning many high honors and awards.

He has also done research on the treatment of patients with gum disease.

Dr. Eltink still enjoys making music and is an avid guitar player. He also loves running, traveling and SCUBA diving. He and his wife are adventure enthusiasts and are always looking for their next adventure.
