Meet the Orthodontist


Dr. Leslie Ellingson

A Nebraska native, Dr. Leslie Ellingson grew up in Fremont, NE before she graduated summa cum laude from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with a Bachelor’s in Biology. Dr. Leslie then moved to Lincoln, where she received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Nebraska Medical College. She stayed at UNMC to complete her Master’s degree and specialty certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dr. Leslie enjoys attending continuing education seminars with the Omaha Orthodontic Study Club and Orthoprenuers conferences. Dr. Leslie is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), Nebraska Society of Orthodontists (NSO), Midwest Society of Orthodontists (MSO), American Dental Association (ADA), Nebraska Dental Association (NDA), and Omaha District Dental Society.

Orthodontics allows Dr. Leslie to be detail-oriented and creative. She really likes that orthodontics allows her the ability to see patients on a regular basis and gives her the opportunity to be a provider as much as a friend! Dr. Leslie says "I often times am seeing a younger patient demographic, and I hope that I can be a positive influence in their lives." With a love for all areas of orthodontics, she especially enjoys the finishing stages of treatment where she can make sure everything is just perfect!

When she’s not at the office, Dr. Leslie enjoys watching cooking and baking shows, thinks she could be a winning contestant on Wheel of Fortune, and spending time at parks and play areas with her children and husband Dr. Dan Ellingson.
