Dr. Ellis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ellis "Known for her captivating smile and her honest yet realistic perspective in dentistry, Dr. Simone Ellis is The Real Deal! With over seven years as owner of Smile Design Studios in Missouri City, Texas, Dr. Ellis has established herself in her community as an authority in practice management. Simone was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas and earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Xavier University of Louisiana and her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Rutgers University School of Dentistry, formerly the University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey. This vivacious leader is the founder and president of the Houston Minority Dental Society and is an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), National Dental Association (NDA), American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), and the Greater Houston Dental Society (GHDS). She also sits on the Board of Educators for the Dental Assisting School at the University of Everest, Houston Campus. Additionally, Simone is a certified clinical evaluator for The Clinician’s Report and a candidate for Diplomat with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Her colleagues call her knowledgeable, dependable, and lighthearted. Her patients call her personable and genuine in nature, while her community calls her a hero. Dr. Simone Ellis actively volunteers with the Houston Make a Wish Foundation and the American Dental Associations’ Give Kids a Smile Day. Annually, through her practice, Smile Design Studios, Dr. Ellis gives back to her community through various outreach initiatives. Most notably, the free dentistry and health fair. This program targets families within the Missouri City radius and offers free dental services, eye exams, and health screenings to over 50 families. Further, Smile Design Studios offers a mentorship program called Smile Designs Studio Academy, which affords high school and college students an opportunity to learn more about the field of dentistry while actively shadowing dental professionals. Smile Design Studios also adopts a family for the holiday season and delivers food and supplies to families in need. Dr. Simone Ellis is not just a community-driven practitioner, she is a leading authority on dental practice management. Her dynamic teaching style brings a fresh perspective to one of the world’s oldest medical professions. Dr. Ellis stands by her belief that “It is important not only to inspire people, but also get them to want to take action and change the course of their life!” Employing a carefully crafted and highly focused blueprint, Dr. Simone Ellis created “The Ambitious Dentist: Career Guide Seminars” a training program which inspires dental professionals through a realistic and honest lens on how to succeed in and navigate the dental industry. This program will not only inform the newly graduated dental professional but will transform their view on the scope of the practicing dentist. As a bonus, this high energy training program provides guidance for those looking to grow from associate doctor of dentistry to gainful practice owner."
