Dental Health and General Dentistry



Comprehensive dental care

Every year, thousands of patients of all ages turn to Ellis Dental Care for a comprehensive range of dental services, including:

  • General Dentistry
  • Pediatric Dentistry
  • Oral Surgery

Each patient is assigned a primary dental care provider who oversees his or her care. In addition to our dentists, dental hygienists are another integral part of our dental team. They provide preventive care and screenings to our patients.

Ellis Dental Care serves as the training facility for Ellis Medicine’s Dental Residency program. This program, established by the former St. Clare’s Hospital, has been successfully educating future generations of dentists since 1975. Many of our dental residents choose to practice locally after graduation.

Appointments

Office hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and you can reach us by phone weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Twenty-four hours advance notice is requested to cancel an appointment. This allows another patient in need of care to be scheduled.
