General Dentistry

A general dentist is similar to a primary care doctor; you may occasionally see a specialist, but you know you can count on one trusted professional to oversee all your oral health needs. Drs. Carl and Scott Herring focus on providing you with all the treatments and services that are necessary to achieve and maintain the healthiest smile possible. Our doctors will work with you to understand your concerns and priorities and create a treatment plan designed just for your unique needs.

Prevention – The Key to a Healthy Smile

Optimal oral health has many benefits and can even improve your quality of life. But you can’t hope to have a problem-free smile without routine preventive services like exams and professional cleanings.

During your preventive visits we look for signs of decay or infection that might be developing without your knowledge. Finding and treating minor problems early is significantly easier than waiting and facing conditions that threaten your oral health and cause pain and discomfort.

Technology plays a significant role in this process; intraoral cameras help you see what’s happening on the outside of your teeth, and digital x-rays let us see inside the tooth where most problems start.

Dental Restorations Return Your Smile to Health

There is a possibility that if you have taken excellent care of your oral health your entire life, you may never need a dental restoration. But most of us will, and at Elgin Family Dental we offer tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implant crowns so we can customize a treatment plan to get your oral health back on track.

Root canals have a bad reputation, but it’s time to put that myth to rest - root canal treatment does not cause pain, they relieve it. Our patients often remark that their treatment was stress-free and far more comfortable than they imagined.

We don’t take extractions lightly, and they are a last-resort solution when all other attempts to save the tooth have failed. You can be confident that our caring team will provide all the support you need during your procedure.

Making Your Care Affordable

Our goal is to provide you with all the care you need for a healthy smile and the means by which to achieve it. We are sensitive to the fact that the cost of dental treatment is a concern for everyone these days.

If you are insured, you’ll be pleased to know we work with numerous insurances and will work with you to maximize your benefits. Our doctors can plan your treatment in stages to spread the cost over a longer period, regardless of whether or not you’re insured. We are also partnered with CareCredit, an interest-free third-party financing option.
