A native of Southern California, Dr. Craig Ellsworth graduated from the UCLA School of Dentistry and the Northwestern University dental residency program before making Spokane Valley, WA his home.
Although he comes from a long line of medical professionals, Dr. Ellsworth chose a different path than many of his relatives who are veterinarians specializing in racehorses. That’s because his true passion was to use his skills and creative talents to design beautiful smiles.
And patients at Family Dental of Spokane Valley couldn’t be happier about that! Because of Dr. Ellsworth’s commitment to cutting-edge dentistry, our practice houses the latest technology for precise, comfortable treatment. It also allows him to create a more collaborative experience with his patients because they can get an up-close look at their dental problems and make more well-informed decisions about treatment.
We use top-of-the-line CO2 dental lasers for painless, nonsurgical gum disease treatment and gum reshaping, and a CT radiographic scanner for unprecedented 3D imaging to aid the diagnosis and planning of procedures. Dr. Ellsworth’s skills, experience, and commitment to technology have also earned him a place on the list of Inland Empire Magazine’s “Best Dentists” and helped Family Dental of Spokane Valley earn Clifton & Associates’ Practice of the Year award.
Dedicated to treating patients the way he would want to be treated, Dr. Ellsworth has memberships in:
- American Dental Association
- Tri-County Dental Society
- Washington State Dental Association
- International Association for Orthodontics
One of the reasons patients love bringing their families to Dr. Ellsworth is because he’s a devoted family man himself who understands what it takes to make dental care smooth and efficient. Outside the office, he loves spending time with his wife, Sherrill, and staying busy caring for their six children. Spokane Valley is the ideal setting for Dr. Ellsworth to pursue his other interests in mountain biking, wake surfing, and deep-sea fishing.
