Meet Dr. Herbert J. Elfring, Jr.

As a general practitioner, I enjoy the long-term personal relationships I have developed with my patients over the years while tending to their individual dental needs. I have been in practice for more than 38 years, and look forward to coming to work every day with a great team of dedicated dental assistants, hygienists, and front office staff. Quite a few of our staff members have been with us for more than a decade, and they truly make our office feel like a family.

Education and Continuing Education

In order to stay current with the latest in dental innovations, I participate in many hours of study in the areas of crowns, root canals, orthodontics, and aesthetic restorations.

Professional Memberships

Outside the Office

Born in Jackson, Michigan, I graduated from Parkside High School where I played football, basketball, and tennis. I lived in Dearborn Heights while attending dental school, then moved to Novi in 1982 where I have lived in the same house for 35 years.

I have been married for 42 years to my college sweetheart, Carol. We have two adult daughters. Sara is a mechanical engineer with Nissan who lives in Novi with her husband and three sons. Kiley lives in Chicago and works as an architect.

When not at work I enjoy playing golf and tennis, water skiing in the summer, and snow skiing in the winter. My wife and I like to travel and have been to Japan, as well as many European countries.
