Dr. Emerick's Orthodontic Board Certification

Meet Dr. Tara Emerick, Board Certified Orthodontist

Dr. Emerick completed her undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and went on to earn her DDS degree from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis in 2014. After dental school, she completed her three-year residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago and received her certificate in Orthodontics and MS in Oral Sciences. Her thesis project involved the evaluation of orthodontic root resorption in a demographic of patients with Short Root Anomaly and she presented her results at the International Association for Dental Research Meeting.
Dr. Emerick is experienced in early diagnosis and treatment planning, adult orthodontics, interdisciplinary dentistry, Invisalign, orthognathic surgery cases, and the newest orthodontic technology. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, and she recently received her certification by the American Board of Orthodontics, a distinction achieved by only 33% of all orthodontists. Dr. Emerick loves orthodontics and creating beautiful smiles for her patients!
Dr. Emerick and her husband, Jonathan, are happy to be back in Indiana, and they are in the process of adopting a puppy!
