About Dr. Ellis
Dr. James R. Ellis DDS is a doctor of medical dentistry, with his Doctorate from UCLA’s prestigious School of Dentistry.
The office manager is his wife Maralee (she’s who you’ll probably talk to on the phone when you call to make an appointment).
Our dental practice serves the area of Yuba City, Marysville, Roseville, Lincoln, Gridley, and the general North Sacramento area. We are a small, privately operated dental office.
When you come in, you will be helped by the Dr. Ellis himself… Not a dental tech, an assistant, or someone just out of school with no real-world experience and very little training. Dr. Ellis has over 40 years of experience and can either help you with your dental needs, or direct you to a specialist who is appropriate for your particular requirements.
