Jessica J. Emard, DMD (Owner)

Dr. Jessica Emard has been delivering exceptional dental care in the Seattle area since 2009. "My favorite part about dentistry is working with a patient to accomplish their dental wants and needs. I recognize patients as individuals with unique goals and desires and believe patient education is the most valuable tool in dentistry."

Having always been a major proponent of holistic health, Dr. Emard obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Minor in Social Studies of Medicine from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. She played soccer in college, and was awarded an elite research grant that resulted in several published articles in the Journal of Nutrition. She went on to complete her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Nova Southeastern University in South Florida.

The decision to move out West was inspired by her passion for the outdoors and desire to be close to the mountains to fulfill an active lifestyle. An avid skier, cyclocross racer, hiker, and yogini, she has plenty to do when not in a dental operatory.

Jessica is also a member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, and Seattle-King County Dental Society. With a true commitment to advanced education, she actively participates in study clubs and continuing education courses in an effort to provide the best possible care for her patients.
