Tara Halliwell-Kemp DDS, MD


Dr. Kemp enjoys the ability to help fix her patients’ problems by being able to get rid of the pain and infection they are suffering from. Oral and maxillofacial surgery became Dr. Kemp’s specialty and passion after being able to fix broken facial bones on patients that sustained traumatic injuries and doing orthographic surgery, a corrective jaw surgery that poses the ability to correct form and function. Dr. Kemp loves being able to restore lost bone and missing teeth with bone grafting and dental implants. As someone who has known she wanted to be a dentist since she was five years old, Dr. Kemp finds it amazing to be able to make people healthier and happier while improving both their function and appearance.

A Buffalo native, Dr. Kemp enjoys running, kick boxing, and many outdoor activities with her three daughters and her husband.
