Steven P. Ellinwood DDS, PC has been providing family dental care in Fort Wayne for three decades. We serve patients in the greater Fort Wayne area, including the communities of Leo, New Haven, Grabill, and Woodburn. With our early morning appointment times, it’s easy to pop in for a checkup before you head to work or school for the day.
We Call Fort Wayne Home
Dr. Steve is the son of a Methodist minister. As such, he moved around a lot, but Fort Wayne was the first place that ever felt like home. That’s why he came back to the area to practice dentistry. His two children graduated from R. Nelson Snider High School, the same school that Dr. Steve attended. (Go Panthers!)
On Sundays, Dr. Steve still teaches Sunday School at his home congregation, Good Shepherd United Methodist Church. He also helps to coordinate annual donations with the Food Drive for Associated Churches Food Bank.
Best Restaurants in Fort Wayne
Do you like Vietnamese food? Kim Vu Vietnamese Cuisine is one of the very best Vietnamese restaurants in the greater Fort Wayne area. People say that the location is a bit hard to find, but that extra effort is worth it! If you’re ordering a bowl of pho, you might even want to consider splitting it because the serving size is so large. All of their food is handmade and authentic…just the way your tastebuds like it!
Rise’ N Roll Bakery & Deli off of Illinois Road can satisfy any appetite. Some of their unique specialties include peanut butter donuts, Amish made treats, and soup mixes that you can purchase to use as gifts for your friends. They open early, so if you still need a bite to eat, just pop in for one of their hot breakfast sandwiches.
Take Your Family to Visit the Fort Wayne Zoo!
Your little ones will love visiting Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo off of Sherman Blvd. The educational programs are perfect for any age. Be sure to check out their unique summer camps when school is out. Most guests find the facility to be quite shady and extremely clean. You can even feed the giraffes by hand! Zoo enthusiasts continue to rave that this is one of the best you’ll ever visit.
Thinking of Getting Dental Implants?
Implants are one of the best ways that our Fort Wayne area patients can replace their missing teeth. If you’re thinking about getting implants or want to know if the treatment is right for you, we’ll be happy to provide a consultation. Dr. Steve can let you know whether or not you’re a candidate for the therapy and then arrange to have your implants placed by a surgeon. Once you’re recovered, we’ll custom make and deliver a fixed implant prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or even a denture.
Implant retained dentures offer far greater stability and comfort over traditional removable “plates.” We can even retrofit your existing denture so as to allow it to snap in and out over implants for support.
Fort Wayne Smile Makeovers
When your entire smile is starting to get worn down or worn out, we know just where to start. Your full mouth reconstruction treatment will look at your smile as a whole. Both the function as well as the beauty of your teeth will come into play. Tooth by tooth, Dr. Steve will create a customized smile makeover plan that helps to return full function and aesthetics, so you can have the confidence to smile in public again.
