In fact, late teeth shedding is related to less cavities once she has he permanent teeth in the mouth.
On average, children start losing their front baby teeth at around 6 years of age. There is a range, however, some children lose their teeth earlier and some later. I would recommend coming in for an exam and X-rays, so doctors can see the positioning of her adult teeth underneath her baby teeth to get a better understanding of when she might lose the baby teeth or if there needs to be any intervention taken by the dentist.
Hope this answer helps.

Every child is unique for tooth eruption and loss. Usually will start at 6 years old, but some kids may be delayed. That being said, I would recommend you seek a dentist to check to make sure the teeth are not fused to the bone, or any other conditions.

Usually, the teeth fall off the same order that they came in. Usually, they lose their first teeth between 6-9. Although she’s definitely in the later side of the tooth loss process, I would not worry too much yet. However, if you do have any concerns, I would take her to a dentist where they can take some X-rays to see where the adult teeth are lying and how much longer the baby teeth will be there.
I hope this answers your questions.
