About Elgin Family Dental
At Elgin Family Dental, we provide comprehensive dental care in a friendly, comfortable environment. We’re here to help you and your family make smart, rewarding choices regarding oral health with thorough consultations, quality dentistry, and accommodating payment options.
Clean & Safe Practice
One of the ways we take great care of our patients is by exceeding all ADA and OSHA recommended standards for hygiene and safety. We have a dedicated area with state-of-the-art sterilization equipment where every instrument is wrapped, sterilized, and made ready before your visit. Each room is also disinfected between patients, and we perform weekly spore testing with a third party infection control center. You can rest assured that your safety and your comfort are our top priorities. We go above and beyond the standards for our patients!
