Dr. Ellis, DDS


Originally from Provo, Dr. Ellis has been practicing in St. George since 2012. He goes to work with a smile on his face every day because he loves his profession and improving the smiles and overall oral health of his patients.

He’s also excited to come home from work to see his wife and three young children. He will spend hours building Lego contraptions with his 6-year-old son, McKay; dressing up like Prince Charming for his princess-obsessed, 4-year-old daughter, Jane; or swinging with his 16-month-old daughter, Annie, on his lap. His kids have their dad wrapped around his finger and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Dr. Ellis loves being part of the great team at Riverside Dental Care and he looks forward to serving you!
