Dr. Dafne Ellis is an orthodontist living and practicing in the community of Lakewood.

A native of San Juan, Argentina, Dr. Ellis developed a passion to become a dental professional at a very early age, drawing inspiration from her own orthodontist. She attended the University of Cordoba in Argentina before matriculating to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2001, graduating summa cum laude with a Health Professions degree. She was accepted to the University of Florida in 2005 and completed dental training at the UF College of Dentistry, graduating at the top of her class in 2009. She immediately began a three-year orthodontic residency at the University of Florida, where she was awarded a Master of Science degree after completing a thesis focusing on patients with cleft lip.

Dr. Ellis recently acquired ownership of Lakewood Orthodontics, which has provided patients in Lakewood exemplary orthodontic care for over 40 years, under the skillful direction of founder Dr. Jack Konegni.

She is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association and the Colorado Dental Association.

In her free time, Dr. Ellis enjoys some of the best activities Colorado has to offer, including cycling, snowboarding, running and travel. Her family and her patients are her number-one priority. She is enthusiastic about giving back to her new community; providing beautiful smiles that both she and her patients can be proud of!
