Dentist in Cherry Creek, CO
Meet Dr. Emilia Herman
Blending the Art & Science of Beautiful Smiles
A native Texan and graduate of the University of Texas Dental School, Dr. Herman made Denver her permanent home following her dental residency program at the University of Colorado. As the managing partner of Creekview Dental, she is honored to build on the tradition of exceptional dentistry established by Dr. John Whiteley more than thirty years ago.
At Creekview, Dr. Herman prides herself and her staff on blending the art and science of dentistry with an unmatched level of friendliness and attention to detail. The high quality of her work is a tribute to her years of experience, dedication to continuing education and close mentorship with several of Denver’s leading dentists. In addition to these “hard skills”, Dr. Herman makes a point to treat her patients like she would her own family.
The Herman family (Dr. Emilia, her husband, Sam, step-son, Gage) love being a part of the Cherry Creek community. Please do not hesitate to say “hello” if you see them around the neighborhood or on the trails with their dachshund, Brewer and fox-red Labrador, Filson!
Dr. Herman’s Dental Education & Training
Following her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas in Austin, Dr. Herman moved to Houston, where she graduated from the University of Texas Dental School. After dental school, she completed her formal dental education at the University of Colorado, where she was selected for 1 of the 10 spots in the university’s prestigious General Practice Residency Program.
Following her residency, Dr. Herman had the good fortune of working with two exceptional dental practices in the Denver area and has developed a reputation for diagnosing and treating a number of complex dental issues. Current areas of focus include the study of occlusion (contact between the teeth) and its role in dental and overall health as well as the headaches, grinding and clenching that can be caused by jaw disfunction.
Dr. Herman is highly dedicated to continuing education, including her involvement in the renowned Dawson Institute of Florida. She is a certified provider of Invisalign Clear Braces and incorporates all her knowledge into creating beautiful and functional smiles that last a lifetime.
Life Away from the Dental Practice
While not practicing dentistry, Dr. Herman is an avid hiker, skier and tennis player. She loves gardening, cooking, visiting Denver’s newest restaurants and being an active member of her church and local Cherry Creek community. She and her family love to explore Colorado and try to make one voyage per year outside of the United States. If you have any hiking, restaurant or travel recommendations, please share them during your next visit!
Why She Became a Dentist
Inspired by her own orthodontist, Dr. Herman knew she wanted a career in medicine from the young age of 11. During high school, she thought about becoming a surgeon, but yearned for a balanced career, where she could really get to know her patients and provide lasting care. In college, she focused her studies on pre-med and pre-dental but always made time to expand her knowledge, taking classes from art to ornithology (bird-watching!). In the end, it was her desire to help others smile that led Dr. Herman to dentistry.
