Meet Dr. Ellis


Lynae Ellis, DDS MS

My goal as an orthodontist is to provide the highest quality of treatment for my patients in a friendly, caring environment. There is great satisfaction in knowing that I have the privilege of making a positive impact on the lives of my patients by creating beautiful smiles that will last them a lifetime. Each one of my patients is special to me, and each smile is a unique gift.

Having braces had such a great impact on my own self-esteem and self-confidence that I decided at the age of 12 that I wanted to be an orthodontist. I feel fortunate that I can make a positive difference in the lives of many children, teens, and adults through improvements in their smiles and overall oral health.

Education and Experience

I was born and raised in Beloit, WI, graduating from Beloit Memorial High School. I received my associate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Rock County and graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree from Marquette University. I also attended dental school at Marquette where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. After completing a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Marquette, I taught as a member of clinical faculty at the Marquette School of Dentistry and practiced general dentistry prior to completing a two-year orthodontic residency at Marquette, earning a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics.

Continuing Education

I participate in many different continuing education courses, including seminars, meetings, and hands-on training in new technologies, so that I can stay current with advances in dentistry and orthodontics and provide the best possible treatment for my patients. I am also board certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.

About Our Team

We have a great staff that is dedicated to providing a very high quality of treatment and customer service. They are very caring and treat our patients like family by forming trusting relationships with our patients and their parents.

Outside the Office

My husband Andrew and I have four children, Greyson, Braelyn, Layla, and Everly. We also have a beloved English bulldog named Griswold, a Boston terrier named Ivy, and a French bulldog named Bo. When I am not in the office, I enjoy movies, reading, music, cooking and baking, and spending quality time with my children, family, and friends.

My community is very important to me, and I am proud to serve the areas where I grew up and am raising my family. I am involved with many local schools and support their academic, music, athletics, and theater departments.
