Outside the Office
At home and in his spare time, Dr. Elazegui is a handyman in every way. From the electricity, to the yard, to water filtration systems—the family has never had to call for help because he can fix almost everything! Most of the people who know him call him “MacGyver.”
You can’t have Roland without his motorcycle. He enjoys riding his motorcycle as much as he enjoys making improvements and modifications to it. Not only will he take his wheels out for a spin on a nice day, he’ll ride it to far distances to take dental classes and seminar (such Las Vegas, Los Angeles, or Palm Springs) just to enjoy the ride.
This man is an avid learner as well. He’s always looking for the next thing to make him grow whether it be from inspirational videos, how to videos / tips and tricks for repairing or building things. He’ll even watch and read Dental books while on vacation! If he’s not buried in some new learning material, he’ll have fun watching action movies on Netflix.
Awesome clean environment and everyone is super friendly. Dr. Elazegui is quite the joker which makes funny and interesting conversation. When doing his procedures, he is always asking if you are comfortable and tells you what he is doing so you understand, which is a big plus! Cora and all the staff make you feel very comfortable and its very easy to talk to them...I feel like I can talk to anyone on the team with my teeth concerns and they do their very best to explain and make you feel confident in their methods. Although the drive is a bit long, driving from Davis, CA, it is definitely worth it due to the friendly environment, staff, and caring dentist!
