Absolutely! We offer a number of ways to replace missing teeth so you can choose the method that best suits your dental needs and budget.
You can replace one missing tooth with a dental crown or get an entire arch of teeth supported by dental implants.

We also offer Six Month Smiles, which relies on clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to move your teeth into the right position in a fraction of the time of traditional braces.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Always pleasant, professional, with quality dentistry. A great choice for dental care.
Everything was Great ! Dr. Ellsworth is an excellent Dentist. He was my Dentist in So. Cal and Moved to the Great White North. I found him again after using other dentists in Idaho. The Other Dentist, Dr. Lee was good, but Ellsworth was my Previous Dentist so I was glad to finally find him again. He Probably didn’t miss me, but I pay on time - So I can’t be that bad of a Patient. Plus I harass the office chicks so he Probably likes that. It keeps ‘em on their toes.
Great experience all around.
I’ve been going to Dr. Ellsworth’s office for about 5 or so years now. After my previous dentist’s office going downhill and hiring a bad hygienist, which in turn made me fearful of the dentist, Dr. Ellsworth and his staff were wonderful with helping me overcome my dental fears when so I first started coming to his office. His staff is wonderful and friendly. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. Family Dental is the best dentist in the valley in my opinion! Dr. Ellsworth services are reasonable and affordable too.
Dr. Ellsworth is the BEST dentist I have ever had!!! I love his professional workmanship; and his very friendly personality.
In all the years of seeing different dentist in the past and who suffers from a dental phobia, this man (Dr. Ellsworth) was a god sent from heaven. Dr. Ellsworth and staff made a point to help me, and made me feel safe during all visits. There is not enough words in the dictionary to explain how sincerely grateful I’m am with Family Dental of Spokane Valley. Giving five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, highly recommend
