Tara Halliwell-Kemp DDS MD

Amherst, NY – Inspire Dental Group, a multi-specialty dental practice with offices in Amherst, West Seneca and downtown Buffalo, announces the addition of Tara Halliwell-Kemp, DDS, MD, to the practice. Dr. Halliwell-Kemp, who specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery, is now seeing patients at Inspire’s offices in Buffalo and West Seneca.

Dr. Halliwell-Kemp received her Bachelor of Science degree from Canisius College, her Doctrine of Dental Surgery from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, and her Medical Degree from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

As someone whose interest in dental surgery began as an elementary schooler fascinated by her own loose teeth, Dr. Halliwell-Kemp is pleased to be working in a practice where her co-workers are as passionate as she is. 

“My colleagues at Inspire Dental and I have very similar goals,” says Dr. Halliwell-Kemp. “The entire practice is full of ‘doers’ who are completely centered on patient care. We all work together to pool our talents to create immediate results for our patients, especially following an emergency.” 

Dr. Halliwell-Kemp is a member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, the Eight District Dental Association, the Erie County Dental Society, the Niagara County Dental Society, the Twin City Dental Society, the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the New York State Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the Western New York Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the International College of Implantology, and the International College of Dentists. A Buffalo native, Dr. Halliwell-Kemp now lives in Orchard Park, NY.


Kirty Pathak DDS

Amherst, NY – Inspire Dental Group, a multi-specialty dental practice with offices in Amherst, West Seneca and downtown Buffalo, announces the addition of Kirty Pathak, DDS, to the practice. Dr. Pathak, who specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery, is now seeing patients at Inspire’s office in Amherst.

Dr. Pathak attended dental school in India before receiving her Doctrine of Dental Surgery from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and her Advanced Education General Dentistry (AEGD) certificate at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in Rochester, N.Y. 

Dr. Pathak’s interest in dentistry stems from her childhood in India, where a lack of comprehensive medical and dental care forced family and friends to travel far from home to receive treatment. 

“I saw the need in my community, and that motivated me to become a dentist,” says Dr. Pathak. “Inspire Dental allows me to work in a multi-specialty practice where we can provide a variety of care for our patients in one place. The core values of the Inspire family are really great – everyone is humble, caring, and team-oriented. We all work together to provide our patients with healthy smiles that are good for their wellbeing overall.” 

Dr. Pathak is a member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, and the Eight District Dental Association. She has received additional certifications and training in Invisalign (Fundamentals and Intermediate), Level 1 Laser, APP-NEA, and Hybridge Implants. Dr. Pathak lives in Buffalo, NY.
