Tara Halliwell-Kemp DDS, MD
ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGEON
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.

“Had to get my (85yr) fatherstooth extracted. Place was very clean and welcoming, staff were very nice and friendly and very helpful, Dr. Kemp and her assistant were extremely kind and mindful of my dads age and situation. Made us feel very comfortable.”
“Well organized office with very pleasant staff. Dr Halliwell-Kemp is an outstanding oral surgeon. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing oral surgery or dentals.”
“The greeting when I walked in to check in for my appointment and how friendly the girls were at the front desk. Dr Kemp. was amazing and knowledgeable. I left your office feeling confident that I was in good hands as far as her diagnosing my medical issue and finding the answers I needed.”
“The surgery itself was fast and quite painless…all expertly done by Dr. Kemp. I have only good things to say, and I am very grateful for Inspire Dental for providing excellent dental care always.”

“Dr.is phenomenal. I have terrible dental anxiety coupled with a complicated medical history AND deep/multiple root channels. Not only was I completely at ease, she had me laughing and pain free. She and her team ensured they explained details of each step and were super gentle- very difficult to do with a patient profile like mine. For as long as I have teeth and am chewing-I’ll be going here.”
“Dr.goes above and beyond. She treats the whole person not just the mouth and she cares and listens. The entire staff was friendly, funny, caring and helpful. It was a pleasure.”
“I recently had several teeth removed in preparation for top and bottom partial dentures. Dr. Kemp and all the staff at Inspire were awesome. I am so glad I chose Inspire dental after several years of not going to a dentist due to anxiety over knowing I would probably need dentures and feeling ashamed for how bad my teeth were. I look forward to going into their office when I need to instead of dreading going to a dentists office.”
“I recently got myteeth extracted at their location on Delaware. I was terrified but Dr. Kemp made me feel very comfortable. Her and all the staff there are extremely friendly, personable and make you feel like you’re in good hands. I can’t say enough good things about them.”
