Emma Van Winkle, DMD

Dentist

Dr. Emma grew up hunting and fishing in a small town in the Missouri Ozarks. After graduating with a degree in biology from Washington University in St. Louis, she went on to complete her general dentistry training at A. T. Still University’s Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health. She graduated first in her class in 2020 and moved to Dallas to work as an intern with UT Southwestern-Parkland Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. There she gained valuable surgical experience and became comfortable managing patients with complex medical histories. She is also able to discuss her patients’ treatment in Spanish. Dr. Emma enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, and takes pride in making her patients feel comfortable. She and her husband live in Dallas with their two children. 

 

“I love being back in a small town! I want all my patients to feel like family. I’m here to help meet your needs with openness, honesty, and a gentle touch.”
