Ellis Family Dentistry makes going to the dentist an easy, relaxed experience.  The staff is friendly and helpful, and the dentists are thorough and do a fantastic job of explaining the dental care they are providing.  They are wonderful with my children, allowing them to feel comfortable enough to have procedures done as needed.  The hygienists are gentle enough to make a cleaning comfortable, yet I still feel that I get a deep clean.  They use cutting edge technology – many processes that usually have to be done in a lab are done right there in the building!  The office atmosphere is comfortable and beautiful – not sterile like so many health care offices can be.  Upon arrival, I am seated with little or no wait.  The front office staff does a wonderful job of explaining treatment and payment plans as well as making appointments quickly and around my schedule.  When you walk in, the 1st thing you see is the word “SMILE” on the wall – this seems to be their motto because everyone at Ellis Family Dentistry greets and treats you with a smile, they work diligently to brighten and correct your smile, and you leave with a smile on your face!

Coming back to live in Hopewell, I’ve had to find all new Doctors. My sister, Susan Harvey Sober, recommended the Ellis Family Dentistry. What a wonderful group of professionals. Not only were they extremely friendly and helpful, the atmosphere in the office and among they staff was so pleasant and inviting. Plus..they play excellent music throughout the office. I felt like I was visiting friends. I loved it. The Doctors were informative and went out of their way to make sure I understood what procedures they recommended for me. I loved this practice!

I have been going to this dentistry for over 10 years. Everyone is always courteous and friendly. I have never had a bad experience. The dental work is always thoroughly explained so I always feel comfortable. I feel that my dental needs are met and in good hands. I highly recommend this dentistry to anyone that is looking for a dentist office to go to. I had my 6 month checkup yesterday. I was very pleased when I left the dentist office. The staff is so nice, friendly and professional. They are willing to answer my questions and offer helpful advice. I felt so comfortable knowing that I was in good hands. I recommend them highly.

This was my first visit and I was very impressed with the entire staff. It was a wonderful experience! Everyone was very friendly, courteous, professional and thorough in my evaluation. I look forward to having them assess and resolve my dental issues in the years ahead. Thank you, Dr. Jonathan Ellis and your lovely hygienist!

I was searching for a family friendly dentist and Ellis Family did not disappoint. From making the appointments to the additional care that was needed for a child’s filling, their attentiveness to client needs is top notch. They were perfect in handling a feisty 1 year old and a nervous 5 year old and we hope to be back for many more years.

Always outstanding customer service. Very friendly staff. My #1 like is the communication. I’m always told what is about to take place and how it should or shouldn’t feel. The office is clean, which is a stickler for me. The outside is also well maintained. Don’t tell them I said this but sometimes the music sux, lol. Music is a matter if preference so I don’t count that in my evaluation. I’m happily returning for a crown and a cleaning so that’s saying a lot. I would definitely refer. Highly recommend. BTW: I chose this practice based on the reviews.

My very first time interacting with the team at Ellis Family Dentistry was very pleasant. I wanted to get an appointment time close to my mom for a routine cleaning and they went above and beyond to try to make it happen. As a new patient, dental provider in another state, they definitely made me feel comfortable and welcomed me as if I’ve been a patient of theirs for years. If you’re in Hopewell VA, or any area close by, and searching for a great dental experience where the entire staff is friendly; Ellis Family Dentistry is the place to come to.

I appreciate the treatment I get from Ellis Family Dentistry. While in the hygienist chair I am comfortable knowing she is good and thorough. She listens to my answers to questions and really hears my concerns. Thank you Melissa! Dr Jonathan is also thorough and listens to my answers and comments

You won’t find a better dental office than Ellis Family Dentistry, and it is because of the people there. From the kind and helpful front desk staff to the assistants and hygienists, everyone delivers exceptional, compassionate care. Dr. Jonathan Ellis takes time to explain what is needed in a clear way. He makes patients feel comfortable and is very good-natured so you enjoy the visit. He goes above and beyond to do what is right for the patient. Dr. Jessica Keller is another great provider in this practice. It is clear they have the same high standards in regards to how they treat their patients. My family has been going here for a while now and we all highly recommend Ellis Family Dentistry!

I was going to need a bridge after having had braces as an adult. Dr. Ellis worked closely with my orthodontist to be sure that my bite was correct. He explained everything to me clearly at each step of my treatment (including the pricing). Everyone at the practice is very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and they really care about their patients.They worked me in quickly, especially when I had an issue with my temporary bridge. I just can’t say enough — I highly recommend Ellis Family Dentistry.

I took my daughter to Dr. Ellis over a month ago and she loved it. I went yesterday and it was a wonderful dentistry experience. The best that I have ever had. Dr. Ellis is “Everything” he is so personable and witty. He had me laughing the entire time while my entire mouth was numb ..lol. He is very humorous. I am telling you that makes all the difference for me. He is great with his work and knows his job well…he knows it too!! ha ha. He is very confident about his work. I am sad to be relocating over 80 miles away; I even ask him if I could take him with me to Chesapeake, Of course he will not go along with me because he loves his beautiful office. Thank you Dr. Ellis and staff for making this a memorable experience for me and my daughter:)

Ellis Family Dentistry has a very friendly, helpful and professional staff. Dr. Jonathan Ellis took time with me to thoroughly explain my visit, and was a great and patient listener. He treated my mother, who thought he was wonderful while she was alive, and now he’s my dentist of choice. Thank you for your excellent care!

Terrific! I am so thankful I had family to refer me to a great dental office. This was my first visit since I relocated to Hopewell. I am very very pleased with the staff. They were very friendly, and went the extra mile to help me with my insurance. The hygienist, Karen was very professional, caring and concerned. I could not be happier. I feel I have found a wonderful dental office. I definitely recommend Ellis Family Dentistry

If you want the best dental care this is the place to go. The Ellis team is like family to us. My family and I have been seen here since 2002. We all look forward to our next visit with them. Up to date equipment and attention to detail ensures the best outcome for any acute care or general check up visit. I highly recommend Ellis family dentistry to all who want professional dental care in beautiful surroundings with a relaxed atmosphere and the friendliest staff! (I know this sounds corny but I really like going to the dentist.) Update, May 20, 2020 I had my first “post COVID-19” visit for a regular hygiene appointment yesterday. I am so happy that the Ellis team is there for me and making it possible to stay healthy. They called in advance so i could pay over the phone to avoid minimal contact in the office. I was instructed to call the office when I arrive and stay in the car until my hygienist would come to get me. She took my temperature with a touchless device before we went inside. I did not have to touch anything until I was in the treatment room and was seated in the chair. Everything was explained in detail as to how the cleaning will be done differently so as to minimize droplets in the air. Also the reason for no goody bags, etc. After the treatment and the checkup I was again escorted out of the building by my hygienist and I did not have to touch anything. I felt safe and went home knowing I can take care of my dental health even when we have the scare of a highly infectious disease!

Ellis Family Dentistry is the most professional dentist services I have ever experienced. The staff, technicians and definitely Dr. Jonathan Ellis are the greatest. Very kind and caring personnel greet you from the time you enter until your treatment is complete. Every procedure is explained in detail and options are presented to you for your choosing. I will use no other dentistry facility. Ellis Family Dentistry gets “Five Stars” and I highly recommend them for all your dental needs. Thank you Ellis Family!

Very professional and friendly atmosphere with modern equipment. The doctor, hygienist and technicians were very thorough in their explanation of what, when, where, why and how treatment was going to be done. I look forward to having the professionals of Ellis family dentistry taking care of my dental needs.

Started going here a month ago I had a bad wisdom tooth. Jessica put me at ease and got me out of pain and I felt nothing. She walked me through whole process and made sure any questions or concerns I had was answered. The entire office is wonderful from the start when you walk in the door. My hygienist Kelsey did my first deep cleaning today and was awesome as well. I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and they never made me feel bad and were just so positive! I have a dental plan set up with them and I can’t say enough good things about this place!! They have definitely changed my mind about the dentist!! A plus they are kid friendly, I couldn’t find anyone to watch my daughter and they were awesome with keeping an eye on her and making sure she was ok!!

Excellent!! This was my first visit with Ellis Family Dentistry and I was 100% satisfied with their service. Everybody was courteous, friendly and professional. In the end I had a complete understanding of my treatment options as Dr Ellis explained everything clearly. Thanks so much to the entire staff!! Have been going to Ellis Family Dentistry for awhile now and still feel they are the best Dental provider I have ever been to and Dr Ellis and his staff are all so friendly, courteous and professional. Excellent Experience!!

Ellis Family Dentistry is a clean friendly office with a wonderful caring staff! I had my teeth cleaned by Melissa who was not only gentle but thorough. She had great chair side manner and was a pleasure to interact with. I also had a filling done by Dr Jonathan. I didn’t even feel the injection to numb my mouth. He was gentle and put me at ease with his demeanor. Krista his assistant was friendly and courteous. Everyone at the front desk was helpful and polite. I would highly recommend this office to anyone searching for a new dentist!

This dentist is amazing. I was a new patient and they got me in the day I called to make an appointment. Everyone was extremely nice and professional. They are out of the Tricare network but they except Tricare and they don’t not charge military families co-pays for preventative visits. They give the a huge discount. I got an x-ray, cleaning and exam for nothing after insurance. I do not recommend Kool Smiles for military families. They should really consider coming here because the experience is AMAZING!!!

This is probably one of the finest dental offices my wife and I have been treated at. It’s clean, nicely kept, professional looking and the staff is also quite friendly, professional and helpful. Dr John Ellis is also nice to write about. He has a lot of energy and will do everything he can to get you taken care of on the day you visit. I had a broken crown and he saw me on short notice. Two hours after they called me in…I walked out with a brand new crown. He is an awesome dentist, you can tell he enjoys his work and he’s rightfully proud of his practice. He has also invested in top of the line equipment to service your many dental needs and get you taken care of there, and expeditiously. My wife and I highly recommend this office for all of your dental needs.

Everyone here is very friendly and patient with the customers. Dr. Ellis takes the time you need to make sure that you understand what he’s going to do, why he’s going to do it, and how it’s going to be done. The dental hygienist are very thorough in their cleanings and make sure that you were comfortable during the process.

Ellis Family Dentistry was able to schedule me an appointment the next day after I called. I’m visiting Hopewell on some long term business and needed my teeth cleaned. Ellis Dentist performed excellent work on cleaning my teeth and provided additional dental work info which I was not aware of. This dental office will always be the one I trust for dental work whenever I’m home visiting VA!

Kennith Snyder (Source: Google)


By far the best dentist office in the area. They do a great job of making sure all my dental needs are taken care of without trying to pad their pockets with unnecessary procedures like my former dentist. My dental health has improved immensely since going here. Would definitely recommend them for your family’s dental needs.

The staff at Ellis Family Dentistry was very professional and courteous. Dr. Ellis himself was very professional and explained every detail about the procedure that I was getting and my current conditions. Although Dr. Ellis was very professional, he was also very funny. His sense of humor helped to relax my fears of getting dental work. I would highly recommend Ellis Family Dentistry to anyone looking for a excellent dentist office. The facility was very nice with a beach theme and colors which also helps you to feel calm. It was also very neat and clean and they follow the CDC guidelines for COVID-19 very carefully, which was very important for me being a patient with conditions that could put myself in danger.

Great experience at this office! Very clean, modern office, super friendly and helpful staff! I had been looking for a new dentist for quite a while and I’m definitely pleased to have found Ellis Dentistry. I was a bit hesitant going back to the dentist during the pandemic but they met me in the parking lot and took me directly back to the room to minimize contact with others and they used every precaution to keep me safe. I wholeheartedly recommend this office!

I have been going here for years and absolutely love it! Everyone is so nice and polite! Ask away with any questions you have of procedures or even asking them how you floss your teeth, they will answer. Dr. Ellis is very friendly and very funny so it takes away from the fear of going to the dentist. Very clean and nicely kept, especially through covid. Thank you guys for being my favorite dentist office I’ve ever been to!

I recently visited Ellis Family Dentistry, what a pleasurable experience (for going to the dentist). The entire team takes great pride in their work, they truly want you to feel like you are going to a member of your family. They have a very nice office with state of the art equipment. I would and do highly recommend them

I have never been a fan of the dentist and recently made the switch to Ellis Family Dentistry. I am so glad I did! Their customer service is top notch and every person I have ever interacted with in the office is kind, helpful, and very welcoming. The make going to the dentist a breeze for me now and I couldn’t thank them enough!

This is a wonderful practice. I have been to many different dentists over the years and this office is the best! I am so very happy that I found Ellis Dentistry after I moved to Hopewell a few years ago. The entire staff is so accomodating, friendly, informative. From the doctors to the entire dental staff always willing to help, answer any question and always have a great attitude. Highly recommended. A big shout out to Lynn who does a fantastic job patiently working on my teeth each and every time!!

Ellis Family Dentistry is the BEST!!! Everyone is so friendly, caring, compassionate and helpful. Karen is the most AMAZINGLY gentle dental hygienist and is the sweetest person inside and out. Dr. Jonathan is an incredible dentist that is straight-forward and is a one stop shop. There is nothing Dr. Jonathan cannot do! He does it all from extractions to implants and so much more! Dr. Jessica is fabulous too!!! She’s full of great ideas to help keep your teeth the best they can be! There is no other dental practice for my family and I!

Great experience! I left a message after hours as a result of the call- I received a text to confirm my contact information. I received a call back by 8:30 the next morning from a polite and professional person who was able to fit me for my emergency procedure. Upon arrival the receptionist was awesome, the technicians were great and the Doctor was courteous, professional, compassionate and patient oriented – World Class.

Ellis Family and Dentistry is the best dentist Ive been to in my entire years of living. I felt extremely comfortable, ALL STAFF that I encountered were very very pleasant. I left with a detailed treatment plan, I’ know what procedures are going to happen and who will do the procedures. I’m so happy that I chose them for my dental needs. Thank you Ellis Family Denistry!!!

Can’t say enough good things about this practice. Had a dental emergency come up. They were quick to squeeze me in and get it taken care of. The staff is wonderful! They really took their time and didn’t make me feel like just another patient. I have high anxiety when it comes to the dentist but they really went above and beyond to insure I had a pleasant experience. On top of all of that, the office is absolutely beautiful. Happy to have finally found a dentist to stick with.

The bottomline, i believe much like myself everyone visit and or moprocedure will be little or no pain. To everyone, Ellis Family Dentistry is the house you will appreciate for all dental procedures It’s pleasant, professional, respectful, considerate, but mostly a friendly environment.
