We are dedicated and compassionate people who are excited about our chosen profession. We view the attainment of excellence as a journey requiring constant growth and openness to change.

For your comfort, we offer state-of-the-art technology and use the highest quality dental materials. At your first visit, you will meet with Dr. Ellis and we will discuss any concerns you have about your teeth or smile. Then, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, take any necessary x-rays and perform several exams, including an oral cancer screening.

Ellis Dental Philanthropy
Dr. Ellis routinely volunteers in community activities aimed at improving dental health care. Each year she participates in the annual Give Kids a Smile program - a not-for-profit program which continues working to eliminate the silent epidemic of dental disease for the millions of children who cannot sleep, eat properly, pay attention in school, or simply smile.
In 2009 and 2012, Dr. Ellis traveled to Huttersfield, Jamaica on a volunteer dental mission trip. She participated in the 1000 Smiles Project, a humanitarian dental mission that brings oral health treatment to those in need across Jamaica. Dental services are free of charge to children and adults including cleanings, fillings, sealants and extractions.
The experience was extremely rewarding and inspiring. Patients lined up and waited in the Jamaican heat, sometimes for several hours, to have their teeth cleaned and treated.
Dr. Ellis hopes to soon return for her third mission!
Committed to Learning and Education
Dr. Ellis and Ellis Dental have been recognized for their commitment to providing the best care possible and for being a leader in the dental industry.
To provide excellence, we believe it is necessary to be open to learning and to change. Dental technology, techniques, and materials are rapidly advancing. Each team member is encouraged to rise to this challenge by taking courses and applying new knowledge. The practice will continue to educate the entire team as new clinical and managerial systems are developed. By pursuing new knowledge, we are able to provide our patients with a broad range of comprehensive services in the comfortable environment that they know and trust.
