About Your Dentist

Emerson Boogaard, DMD

"Being a great dentist requires one to think like a Doctor, an ENgineer, and an arTIST. When those three elements come together, great things can happen."

My Mission

My mission in dentistry is to help my patients achieve and maintain excellent oral health by educating them on effective dental hygiene, developing trusting relationships, and providing high quality, comprehensive care. I believe that effective treatment is only possible through individualized care that recognizes the connection between oral health and overall physical well-being. I am committed to working collaboratively with each patient to develop a treatment plan that serves their unique needs and successfully meets their personal goals.

My team and I will do everything we can to provide a positive experience in our office and we are united in the conviction that this can only happen by treating every patient with honesty, dignity, and respect. We will always act in the patient's best interest and perform procedures within the scope of our skills and certifications. Additionally, every member of our team will pursue continuing education opportunities that broaden our knowledge, expand our expertise and hone our skills so that our patients will enjoy the very best dental care available. When an outside specialist is required, I will only make referrals to dental professionals in whom I have the utmost professional confidence.

My ultimate personal and professional goal is to serve my community by providing exceptional dental services with the same level of care and attention I would give to members of my own family.

Life & Hobbies

At heart, I am a family man. I love spending time with my lovely wife and our four energetic kids. I also enjoy biking, running, and weight training. For leisure, I enjoy solving puzzles, playing games, and watching movies. My mind is most at ease when it's engaged in designing and building something. I particularly enjoy landscaping and the challenge of creating hardscapes.

I look forward to a long career in dentistry and its unique combination of scientific skill and artistic creativity. I often find myself whistling as I work to help pass the time. It's pretty much my only musical talent.

My wife and I enjoy exploring nature and working out at our local gym. Family is also very important to us, so we spend as much quality time with them as possible. Whenever I find some quiet time, I enjoy relaxing with a book and coffee.
