||Background and Education
Dr. Ellie Follmar was raised near Seattle, and moved to the Bay Area to attend college at Santa Clara University. There, she earned her B.S. in Psychobiology. With an interest in science, art, and people, dentistry seemed like a perfect career choice. She continued her education at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, where she met her classmate and husband-to-be, Troy.
Following graduation, Dr. Follmar worked at a locally renowned dental practice in Palm Desert, California, focusing on cosmetic dentistry. She continued her career in Southern California, practicing comprehensive dentistry in clinics for the underserved, while Troy finished his residency in oral surgery.
The Drs. Follmar moved to Los Gatos in 2013, and shortly after welcomed their daughter, Lyla. Dr. Ellie Follmar continued to practice part-time at various local dental offices to keep her skills sharp during Lyla’s first two years. She is now excited to share her passion for dentistry and lay down roots in this special community.
Dr. Ellie Follmar is experienced in all phases of general dentistry, including fillings, crown, bridge, implant restorations, and dentures. She has treated adults and children of all ages, and is a proud provider of Invisalign. Her practice is founded on integrity and honesty, and she won’t take advantage of her patients.
"I look forward to treating each patient as an individual, with compassion and respect; as if they were a member of my own family."
