Dr. Nathen Ellis spent his formative years living at different Air Force bases across the country. When his dad returned to civilian life, his family settled in Wilkesboro, NC. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from NC State University with a degree in Biological Sciences and minor in Genetics. Dr. Ellis always had an interest in medicine, but his passion for dentistry developed while he volunteered for a local dental outreach program during his undergraduate studies. After taking 2 years off from school to perform genetics research at Duke University, Dr. Ellis attended UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Dentistry. During that time he married his wife Kariann and welcomed their first daughter Annalee. Upon graduation, Dr. Ellis and his family decided to relocate to Lincoln County to be closer to their extended family in Charlotte and Wilkesboro. Their family has since grown, as they welcomed their second daughter Amelia. After practicing in Lincolnton for 4 years as an associate, Dr. Ellis decided it was time to have a practice of his own. He chose Denver, NC for his practice location after moving to the community 2 and half years ago. He and Kariann decided this is where they wanted to grow some roots and raise their family. A year after opening Denver Dental Arts, Dr. Ellis and Kariann welcomed their third daughter Adeline.
When not in the office, Dr. Ellis enjoys spending time with his family, going to the gym, cruising in his Chevy Camaro, binge watching Netflix, and throwing a line in the water every now and then.
