Dr. Rob Ehlers was born and raised in a small farming community in Idaho, and by the age of 12 he was already working in the potato fields. From an early age, sciences and health have always interested him. He was drawn to dentistry because of how it incorporates science and a hands-on aspect with patients as well.
Dr. Rob attended Brigham Young University for his undergraduate and completed dental school at the University of Pennsylvania. He found his passion in his first job working with a large group of pediatric dentists. From the first week, Dr. Rob knew that he wanted to focus on kid’s dentistry because he loves interacting with kids and making them feel comfortable at the dentist.
The biggest reward is when a child goes from being very nervous at first to giving high fives and smiles at the end of a visit. He focuses his continuing education on pediatric dentistry to ensure the highest standards of dentistry for every kid.
Dr. Rob moved to North Carolina to be near his wife’s family, and to be in a great state to raise a family. They have four small children who keep them very busy, and they love it. He aims to treat every young patient the same way he wants his children treated at the dentist. As a family, they stay busy through family trips to the park, pool, or beach.
