Dr. Melissa Elliott is family dentist, treating patients in her Fallston dental office from age 3 and up!
Family dentistry can be beneficial in many ways for today’s busy families, enabling all members to be treated in the same location. For children, visiting the dentist for the first few times can sometimes be stressful. But being able to accompany Mom or Dad and be treated alongside them often provides the reassurance they need to feel comfortable and confident for future visits. In this way, family dentistry can help to lay a foundation for lifelong oral health.
As a family dentist, Dr. Elliott offers pediatric services, including preventive care, dental sealants and fluoride treatments for growing teeth. Dr. Elliott also offers custom sports mouth guards to protect teeth during physical play and will monitor wisdom teeth for the young adult patient, recommending treatment when deemed necessary.
For young adult, adult and senior dental patients, Dr. Elliott diagnoses and treats complex dental health problems, offering both cosmetic and restorative procedures often necessary for long term oral health.
Dental health is important as part of overall health and well being- studies have consistently shown the mouth- body connection and modern dentistry emphasizes the benefits of maintaining the natural teeth for as long as possible for a good quality of life.
