Meet Your Dentist

Dr. Emily Booker

Dr. Booker knew she wanted to be a dentist since the first grade when she suffered an oral injury during a game of kickball. She was fascinated by the process of repairing her tooth and how her dentist was able to transform her smile with ease. Dr. Booker left her hometown to pursue her undergrad degree at Wittenberg University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry in 2009. She went on to study dentistry at Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine and obtained her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree in 2015.

After working in the Cleveland area for a few years, she decided it was time to return to Willard to set some roots in her hometown. When she was given the opportunity to take over Dr. Lidington's practice and start Willard Family Dentistry, she knew it was the right choice. She is thrilled to be able to provide her hometown with the quality of care she would want to receive. Dr. Booker loves that as a family dentist, she is able to watch her patients grow and be part of their lives for many years.

When she’s not providing top-notch care for her patients in Willard, she loves to spend time with her husband, James, and her two boys, Manny and Jack. Together, they enjoy attending Cleveland Sporting Events, spending time outside, and going fishing on Lake Erie.

Dr. Booker is a member of the following organizations:
