For over thirty years, Elmwood Dental Group has helped set the bar for quality dental care. Founded in 1977 by Dr. Frank LaMar Sr., the practice quickly established the reputation for professionalism with honest, comprehensive, compassionate care at the absolute highest level. Raised on this tradition of excellence, brothers Dr. Frank and Dr. James LaMar joined their father in practice in 1992 and 1991 respectively, making it a true family practice. Today, our caring and knowledgeable team of doctors, hygienists, and staff carry on this legacy of excellence by seeking out the most current continuing education training, employing the finest bio-materials, and the latest technology to meet and exceed the needs of our patients and their families. As it was in 1977, we are NOT a fast paced, insurance driven practice. We take the time necessary to reach the optimal result desired for each unique individual. We enjoy knowing our patients and their families, respect and honor the privilege of the doctor patient relationship and strive to grow our practice through our Share a Smile referral program, one trusted referral at a time.
In 2005, Elmwood Dental Group, located at S. 1950 Clinton Ave., acquired a separate but attached office location at 1960 Clinton Ave., creating a unique, private space for Elmwood Dental Group's innovative and nationally recognized implant and restorative specialty practice. Here, prosthodontists Dr. Frank LaMar and Dr. Julian Kahn work closely with Dr. Jim LaMar to perform comprehensive implant and restorative dentistry of the highest order, most famously, the invention and implementation of now nationally recognized and widely adopted HYBRIDGE dental implant system. In fact, some of the most experienced and respected implant and prosthetic dentists throughout the United States now travel to Rochester, NY to train with us here at Elmwood Dental Group's Implant and Restoration Center.
So what can you expect as a patient at the Elmwood Dental Group Implant Restoration Center? Dr. Frank LaMar is proud to be considered Rochester’s first choice for providing simple, life changing solutions to those patients who are struggling with complex dental problems. You will be greeted in a warm and inviting environment by one of our accommodating front desk staff and enjoy a brief wait in our relaxed and comfortable waiting room before being introduced to Dr. Frank LaMar. After discussing your dental history, hopes and goals, Dr. LaMar will conduct a thorough exam, including any necessary low radiation x-rays and photographs.

Dr. LaMar encourages your involvement in this process and will answer any and all questions you might have. Dr. LaMar does not believe in “selling” treatment, and for that reason we strive to create an open ended dialogue, without pressure to make important decisions regarding yourhealthcare. Once a course of treatment has been reached, Dr. LaMar will coordinate and oversee your treatment, typically in conjunction with his brother and leading implantologist, Dr. James LaMar, and colleague, fellow prosthodontic specialist, Dr. Julian Kahn.
