ElderCare Dental

We offer preventative dentistry in the communities where seniors live. Our ElderCare Dental team uses state of the art equipment to provide compassionate, quality oral health care. All of our dentists and hygienists receive specialized training in the unique dental needs of seniors, including how to effectively communicate with the patient and the patient’s care giving team. Our goal is to make it easy for our patients, the nursing staff and, as needed, their extended family members, to do business with ElderCare Dental and to access our network. ElderCare Dental believes that by improving how seniors receive dental care, we can improve their overall health. And, our commitment is to improve the overall health and longevity of seniors, one cleaning at a time.

Our Team

ElderCare Dental Dentists, Hygienists and Dental Therapists Our team members are experts. Every dentist, hygienist and dental therapist has extensive experience in providing dental care to seniors and they understand how to provide this care in a compassionate way. In addition, they have received specialized training in how to communicate with seniors and the caregiving team in the community in which those individuals live. Our team also includes members who have worked in mobile dentistry. They know how to ensure that our staff has the right equipment to provide quality dental care on site, as well as how to provide referrals if any follow up work is necessary.

Dr. Marcus Gustafson Founder, ElderCare Dental

After thirty-five years of experience as a dentist, including CEO of Metro Dental Care, Dr. Gustafson created a new vision for senior dentistry. He recognized that seniors, many of them former patients, were not receiving consistent preventative dental care. Together with a team of passionate professionals he developed Eldercare Dental.
