  • Ashley L.
    I had such a great experience with this office yesterday. My hygienist, Allison, was so friendly and made my cleaning an easy process! My dentist, Dr. Carl was so nice and explained any question I had. Such a wonderful place, I am glad I found my new dentistry home! Thank you!

    I've been a patient for several years and the staff is always friendly and professional. My appointments are always on time and the dental office is always accommodating. I appreciate the patient communication. Highly recommended!
  • Stephen S.
    Dr. Scott Herring is the best Dentist that I've ever known. He never gets in a rush and I never feel any pain. From the first visit they'll make you feel like part of the family, while having state of the art equipment and the professionalism that is needed in this day and time. I plan to be their patient for life.

Welcome to Our Practice

Since 1977, Elgin Family Dental has provided quality dentistry to families in Elgin, Manor, Coupland, McDade, and surrounding communities. The father-son team of Dr. Carl Herring and Dr. Scott Herring take the time to get to know you and your dental concerns. Their goal is to provide you with individualized treatment options and the support you need to achieve excellent oral health. In the four decades Elgin Family Dental has been practicing, our dedicated team and valued patients have also become part of our extended family.

Our team enjoys having fun while we work. When you come to our office, it will feel like you’re visiting old friends; however, everyone also takes their professional roles very seriously. We believe you deserve the very best dental care available; so, our entire staff continually trains to expand their knowledge and experience by attending continuing education seminars, workshops, and on-site educational webinars to provide you and your family with the best quality dental care possible in a stress-free, relaxing environment. We have noise cancellation headphones, music, cozy blankets, and neck pillows to help you relax and we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation.

We Make Oral Health Care Easy

We are open five days a week and offer hours starting at 7:30 AM Tuesday through Friday so you can schedule a convenient visit before school or work.

Dental insurance and financing the cost of care are important issues for everyone, and our front office staff will be happy to assist you with the details and answer your questions. We accept most PPO insurances including Aetna, Delta, Humana, and United Healthcare. Please visit our financial page for a complete list of insurance plans as well as our other financing options.
