“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.”

"Went in yesterday for a 6 month check up. Was greeted by an always cheerful Elaine and the front desk! Then Bailey, a new dental assistant, greeted me with an equally cheerful "hello" and walked me back to my chair. Everyone said "hi" to me as we walked back and I thought to myself "this is why I've been coming here for so many years!". Bailey inspected my teeth and cleaned them as we had a great conversation about how to keep my teeth clean, brushing, flossing, etc. Then Dr. Pat came in and greeted me again like an old friend. So friendly and funny, yet very professional. I tell everyone that in my 70 years this is the ONLY dentist's office where I have ever felt relaxed and welcomed! They treat every patient like this. With such class, friendliness, and professionalism. I would give them 10 stars if I could!! Emigh Dental Care. Simply The Best!!!"
"Dr Todd and his staff are extremely friendly and kind. I never feel pressured into having work done that may be unnecessary like I did at my former dentist. The office is extremely efficient and I've never had to wait more than a few minutes to see the dentist. I can't say enough good things about this man and his staff. They make what would normally be an unpleasant experience into a very positive experience."
"Simply AMAZING! I am so thankful to Mary Frances Torres for recommending Emigh Dental. They have an awesome team, and they treat you like family."
"I cannot say enough GREAT things about Dr. Pat and the staff at Emigh Dental. I’ve had bad experiences in the past where dentists are not very personable and/or shame you for what you haven’t done or what you need to do. You won’t get that here. They explain everything and it’s your call in the end. I’ve needed an implant for a few years but was too scared and wanted to hang on to my loose tooth (?!) as long as I could. I finally had to face up to the procedure and started the process today. Dr. Pat extracted two teeth (my other one was loose as well), inserted the post, gave me my “flipper” and I was on my way until my follow up appointment. But...not until I cried in the chair after everything was finished telling him how GRATEFUL I was to him! He talked me through everything before he started, was not rushed, made sure I was comfortable throughout and kept everything lighthearted as well. I am so thankful I found this office - the staff truly cares about the patient experience - from the front desk to the dental chair. Thank you Dr. Pat, Karen, Jade (the best hygienist around!), Dr. Allyson, Elaine, Amy and the rest of the staff that always makes me feel as comfortable as can be when visiting a dentist! So, so grateful!!"
