Dr. Christopher Emma is one of the most passionate and talented dentists in the state of New Jersey, dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care to all his patients.  Dr. Emma has been recognized by his peers as a “NJ Top Dentist” in 2013.   Dr. Emma enjoys getting to know his patients and their families on a first name basis, and providing them with the highest quality of care.  Dr. Emma has patients driving from all over the state just to become a patient of his.  Spending time with each patient to ensure their understanding of their dental health and condition is what separates Dr. Emma from the rest.  He is constantly training and studying to learn the latest techniques in the dental field.  After owning many practices throughout New Jersey, Dr. Emma has decided to go back to where he grew up and build the most beautiful state of the art dental practice to date. 

Dr. Christopher Emma is proud to serve the Monmouth and Ocean County communities, where he still has family and many friends residing locally.  After graduating from Brick Township High School in 1992, he then went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Science at Montclair State University.  Graduating with honors and receiving many awards for his academic achievements, Dr. Emma decided to pursue a career in dentistry.  In 1997, Dr. Christopher Emma entered the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Dental School.  While attending U.M.D.N.J., he was a member of several societies and received numerous achievement awards.  Dr. Emma graduated from the New Jersey Dental School at the top of his class in May of 2001. His dad, Anthony Emma, was a carpenter for many years and always stressed to him the importance of craftsmanship and quality, and standing behind your work.  This philosophy is what drove Dr. Emma’s achievements and why he has become such a truly talented general dentist today.

Dr. Emma has put together a team that is highly motivated and professional that will be serving their patients to ensure they have a positive, worry-free visit at Encore Dental.  Dr. Emma believes in striving to make sure every patient has a pleasant experience from the first phone call to each and every visit.  Whether it’s oral surgery, endodontics (root canals), periodontics (gums), or preventative care, his team is ready to take care of all of your dental needs.  Dr. Emma’s philosophy is “The Patient Always Comes First,” and you will experience that as soon as you walk into his waiting room.

Dr. Christopher Emma enjoys living at the Jersey Shore with his family and collecting old pictures of the area.  He is also looking forward to having conversations with his patients about the town, its’ history and its’ future.
