ELY FAMILY DENTISTRY, LLC
Our patients are our number one priority
Dr. Sheryl Ely
Dr. Sheryl Ely’s fascination with dentistry started when she went through the dental assisting program at Santa Fe College. She then went right into the Dental Hygiene Program at Santa Fe College and remained in dental hygiene for 11 years. Also, during this time as a dental hygienist, Dr. Ely taught some courses for the Santa Fe Dental Hygiene Program. It was after this time that Dr. Ely decided to go back to school and signed up at the University of Florida. While married with two small children, she completed a Degree in Microbiology and a Minor in Chemistry, receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in 1999. Moving forward, she completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine in 2003, also from the University of Florida, and has been in practice ever since. She first started with Dr. Thomson in the same building that her practice is currently located today. Dr. Ely took over the practice as her own in 2009, when Dr. Thomson retired.
Dr. Sheryl Ely is a member of the American Dental Association and the Florida Dental Association.
Dr. Sheryl Ely has been married to her husband, Troy, for 32 years. They met in 1981 through a mutual friend and it was love at first sight. They have one daughter, Jessica, and one son, Travis. The whole family are avid Gator Fans and always enjoy a good game. After Dr. Ely graduated from UF, her daughter followed suit and graduated from UF in 2017 with a degree in Business. Travis found his calling at the University of Central Florida and will graduate with a Finance degree this May, but they all root for the Gators come game day. The Ely household enjoy their Gator enthusiasm with a whole room in their home dedicated to the Gators! When Dr. Ely is taking a break from the ups and downs of dentistry, she delights in spending time with her family and friends, meeting new people, and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities. She loves to travel when she can and is up for anywhere around the world. But no matter what, she always makes a special date to meet up with her husband, Troy, at the gym.
