His emphasis is on restorative dentistry, helping to achieve dental harmony and a nice overall esthetic result, and he is constantly devoting time to learn the newest advancements in the field of dentistry. “Dentistry is not just about drilling and filling. It’s critical to look at the big picture to try to understand how improving oral health can ultimately help improve our patient’s overall health. My goal as a practitioner is to help improve my patients lives, and it starts with good oral hygiene habits and regular dental check-ups”. When Dr. Emilio is not practicing dentistry, he spends most of his time with his family. He is also an avid basketball player and outdoorman.
