Dr. Rhonda Elloway-Stephens

Diplomate of Dental Sleep Medicine

Dr. Rhonda Elloway-Stephens has been practicing in the field of Dentistry for 40 years. She followed in her fathers’ footsteps with a similar passion for serving people and improving their quality of life through providing caring, relationship-driven, clinically excellent dental treatment. Growing up in British Columbia, Dr. Elloway-Stephens has a great love of the outdoors, is known for her warm and friendly personality, honest assessments, and thorough attention to detail.

Dr. Elloway-Stephens graduated Magna Cum Laude highest honors from Loma Linda University, California both in 1982 with a B.Sc. in Dental Hygiene and then in 1990 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. She received multiple awards at graduation including the honor of being inducted into the exclusive Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental society (top 12% of class).  Dr. Elloway-Stephens has always had a special interest in dental solutions for treating sleep and breathing disorders and went on to earn Diplomate status with the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, one of only 10 in BC with this designation and working in this specialized field.  This credential is regarded widely as the gold standard for excellence in Dental Sleep Medicine.

A strong believer in continuous education and the latest advancements in her profession, Dr. Elloway-Stephens attends 100+ hours of continuing education a year.  She most recently narrowed her education to “Airway Centric” dental treatments and therapies that include:  advancements in digital dentistry , Laser therapies for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea,  “airway” focused Invisalign orthodontics, assessing and treating tongue tie as it relates to compromised oral posture and airway development, craniofacial growth patterns, interventional treatment with growth guidance appliances, Maxillary expansion for children and adults, Myofunctional therapy, adjunctive treatments to address poor nasal respiration, sleep apnea and TMJ dysfunction connections, to name just a few of the many areas of advanced study.

Educating and raising public awareness of the many ways dentistry can assist patients with Sleep Apnea, breathing disorders, growth, development, and health of the jaws and TMJ is a commitment that Dr. Elloway-Stephens is passionate about.  Oral Appliance Therapy, a physician recommended and proven treatment for primary snoring and sleep apnea, has unfortunately not been offered to many that are C-pap intolerant and many go untreated and continue to suffer not knowing there is an alternative.  It is Dr. Elloway-Stephens greatest desire that through her patient support, education and treatment, many will be able to experience quality sleep, better breathing and a vibrant life.
