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. Upon graduation in 2012, Dr. Ellis decided to relocate to Lincoln County to be closer to his family in Wilkesboro. 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 in 2014.


Dr. Ellis and his wife Kariann have been married since 2009. They have 3 spunky, beautiful daughters Annalee, Amelia, and Adeline. 

When not in the office, Dr. Ellis enjoys spending time with his girls, going to the gym, drag racing his Chevy Camaro, playing Fortnite, binge watching Netflix, and throwing a line in the water every now and then.
