Dr. Travis Elliott

Dr. Travis Elliott

Dr. Travis Elliott is a General Dentist at Ross Creek Dental and looks forward to welcoming new patients of all ages. Travis enjoys providing a calm, friendly and educational experience for his patients.

Dr. Elliott received his dental degree in 2015 from New York University. Upon graduation, Travis and his family returned to Alberta to practice general dentistry for the past 5 years in and around the Calgary area. However, their desire to be closer to their roots and family has led Dr. Elliott back to the Edmonton area. He is proud to help serve the greater Fort Saskatchewan community.

Travis enjoys building relationships with his patients and actively involving them in their dental care. It is important to him that his patients are given choices and that they are informed participants in their own dental health. By discussing the possible options and approaching your dental needs as a team, Dr. Elliott can aid in your goals of maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile.

His particular areas of interest include wisdom teeth surgeries, implant dentistry, Invisalign orthodontics and cosmetic dental care.

Travis and Sarah are proud parents to their two daughters, Abigail and Rose. In their spare time, the family enjoys skiing, golfing, fishing and camping throughout Alberta and British Columbia.
