Marissa Rubio-Ellis Caring For Patients Since 1998

Dr. Marissa Rubio-Ellis

Senior Doctor

Dr. Marissa Rubio-Ellis has been practicing dentistry in the Phoenix area for over 20 years. Before graduating from Creighton University with a BA in English and a BS Biology, she fell in love with her future husband, John and decided to stay at Creighton for dental school. After graduating with her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1998, she and John packed up and moved to his hometown of Phoenix and set down their roots closer to family. Besides being a current member of the American Dental Association, the Central Arizona Dental Association and the International Association for Orthodontics, Dr. Ellis works hard at staying up to date on the latest and greatest dental techniques. She has even been known to take her team to Disneyland–rather the California Dental Association meetings in Anaheim, to stay current. In her spare time, Dr. Ellis is a certified Jazzercise instructor, a Disney fanatic, a SCUBA diver and an avid Arizona Diamondbacks fan. However, at the end of the day, her favorite thing to do is spend time with her husband and their two children, Belize and Reef.

Dr. Crane


Dr. Crane was raised in the rural countryside of Southern Idaho. It was there he learned to work diligently alongside his four brothers and father on a dairy farm. It was through the local Boy Scouts and master scout, who is a dentist, that he developed an interest in the dental field. He fulfilled his dream of becoming a dentist after much hard work and determination. Now, his current goal is to bring high-quality dental care to every patient whom he treats and interacts with.

He spends most of his spare time with his family. His three children keep him pretty occupied but he loves spending time with them. They love playing games together, swimming and playing outdoor sports. Dr. Crane also enjoys playing the guitar, trying new restaurants with his wife and being involved with his church.
