Meet the Doctor
Dr. Elizabeth Picard received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan. From there, she moved to Florida to attend Nova Southeastern University, where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree. Her love of children and passionate for pediatric dental care led her to a residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, where she obtained her certificate in Pediatric Dentistry.
Children have specific dental needs, and Dr. Elizabeth loves meeting those needs with specialized and personalized care. Their bright, happy smiles are the reasons she loves being a pediatric dentist. To ensure she is always providing the best possible care, Dr. Elizabeth attends numerous continuing education courses throughout the year, and she stays up-to-date with Pediatric Advanced Life Support training. She is also trained in oral conscious sedation and has operating room privileges at McLaren Bay Region and MidMichigan Medical Center, both of which allow her to provide her patients with the sedation they may need to stay comfortable and get the care they need.
When she’s not in the office, Dr. Elizabeth loves spending time with her husband, Dr. John Picard (who is also a dentist). Together, they love biking, running, skiing, traveling, and trying out new restaurants. She is also a huge Disney fan and loves talking favorite characters and movies with her patients.
Dr. Picard looks forward to seeing your children’s smiles. Call us today to schedule an appointment!Contact Us

Pediatric or General Dentist: What’s the Difference?
Wondering where you should take your child for dental care? A pediatric dentist treats exclusively children and has been trained in pediatric care beyond dental school. Their training consists of learning to communicate with, educate, and treat children of all ages and needs. Dr. Picard and the Tri City Kids team are all aware of the needs of children when it comes to caring for them and helping them feel comfortable at the dentist.
