“I love helping people feel confident about their smile, whether it's from improving the cosmetics, or improving the overall function and health. Cosmetic dentistry is a true passion of mine, as I have had the privilege of seeing how even small changes in the mouth have made a huge difference in my patients lives. I also love the artistry and science of dentistry….it’s amazing! My favorite pastimes are spending time with my wife, Jami, a professor at LBCC, and our beautiful daughters Tatum and Morgan. We enjoy barbecuing with friends and family, playing with our crazy dogs, Denver and Teddy, playing soccer, and traveling.”

"A co-worker recommended Emigh Dental Care and she has been going to them for a while; her smile is pretty awesome too. But since my first visit, I can't imagine trusting anyone else to upkeep my smile.I've been going to Emigh Dental Care for a while now. Truthfully, I can't remember when I started going to them because it feels like forever. Not only is it a family run dentistry but they also treat you like family which is probably why I may have lost track of time. Everyone in the office always has a smile on their face and they always greet you when you walk through the door. I enjoy that they can pull up your last visit or your first visit when they are trying to track the progress of your cleanings and sorts. Unfortunately, I have gotten a scolding for not following instructions (well deserved since it was my fault for not listening) but I know when that happens, they care. I had a deep cleaning where I needed a shot or two and I let me tell you, it wasn't as horrible as some people make it out to be. It's not horrible at all but that's my opinion. In all, I would recommend this office to all of my friends especially those who fear the dentist."
"Best dentist in the world. I'm a Oregon ducks fan but a USC dentist is for me. Never liked the dentist until I met this family of dentist. Staff is amazing and they really care about the patients. Every time Ive been I see nothing but happy people come in and leave. I fly all the way from Chicago to the best dentist in the world. Thankful for everything they have helped me with. I love my new smile and I'll be back soon for sure. Emigh family rules"
"The whole family goes to Emigh dental. The kids used to go to a pediatric dentist and always has anxiety about getting any work done. Now that Dr. Pat sees the kids, they have no problems getting work done. We love all the staff and enjoy all the personal touches you get at Emigh Dental"
"I have been going to this dentist for nearly 38 years, and I enjoy seeing them! Yesterday I had to get prepped for my first crown, and for the the first time ever, I was a bit nervous. Pat and his crew were very comforting and got the job done with no pain at all! I then was lucky enough to get into a root canal specialist that Dr Emigh recommended, and again was very nervous. They did the root canal without pain and I was expecting to have some sort of discomfort today from all the work that was done. I surprisingly woke up with very very little soreness! Nothing an Aleave couldn't handle! I hope I don't need to have anymore in the future, but if I do, I know what to expect! Excellent job to the Emigh crew!"
"Emigh (it sounds like "Amy" to me) Dental Care has all these people named Dr. Emigh that they go by their first names, so I saw Dr. Todd. My referral came from a really happy (picky, finicky, complainy) friend. When I set up the appointment and was asked "when were you last at the dentist?", I went ahead and answered with a shameful "I dunno" and thought they would have a good excuse to need deep cleaning or other expensive procedures. Not at all! I got my teeth cleaned and my new toothbrush and booked a 6 month appointment. The office is fantastic, the staff are professionals and friendly, I felt very taken care of. I won't avoid the dentist anymore."
