Dennis W. Ellis, DDS, PA

Your First Visit

We believe that from your first visit with us, you’ll notice how personalized and comprehensive your care will be. Dr. Ellis understands that a trusting doctor-patient relationship is a building block for a positive experience in our practice. This is best accomplished by completing your comprehensive exam prior to your initial hygiene visit. With the help of our professional, caring staff, we will work with you to establish this trusting relationship using our communication and listening skills. Our patients appreciate how our team provides thorough dental care to the Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham, and surrounding communities.

Our goal is to provide you with complete, quality and esthetic dentistry that lasts a lifetime. Our philosophy is centered on the practice of Complete Dentistry, a discipline learned through advanced education at The Dawson Academy. As we are part of the 10% of dentists in the country practicing Complete Dentistry, you can be assured that you are receiving the best possible care.

We emphasize prevention, early detection and treatment of diseases that could jeopardize your oral health. With your help, we can minimize pain, maximize your valued time and make the best use of your investments. With proper diagnosis and conservative treatment, we can help you maintain a lifelong, healthy and beautiful smile.

Your Exam

Comprehensive care begins with a comprehensive examination. During your first visit, we will evaluate your teeth, gums, bite, temporomandibular joints and facial muscles. Along with your most current X-rays, we will use an intraoral camera to take you on a personalized tour of your mouth. We may use T-Scan, a digital bite analyzer, to communicate any bite problems. If necessary, we may also make impressions of your teeth for extensive study in your absence
