Inspired to be a Dentist
Dr. Alyssa Ellsworth was raised in St. Louis, Missouri by her graphic designer mother and father who owned a dental laboratory with his brother. She attributes the combination of creative and dental influences in her life as inspiration to become a dentist. After a childhood spent outdoors; camping, four-wheeling, and hiking; and weekends enjoying all things water at Lake of the Ozarks in central Missouri, skiing, tubing, and riding wave-runners, she moved to Kansas City to attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
From Kansas City to Denver
After completing her undergraduate degree in chemistry in only three years, Alyssa Ellsworth jumped right into dental school. She just did not want to wait! Alyssa graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 2015. Her childhood spent enjoying the outdoors inspired her to to apply for a General Practice Residency program at the VA Medical Center in Denver immediately after finishing dental school. After completing the one year Residency, Dr. Ellsworth decided to launch her dental career in Colorado; the outdoor opportunities that Colorado offer matched her interests.
