Dr. Emani was born in India, in the southeastern state of Andhra Pradesh, where he grew up in a variety of small towns. From an early age he exhibited his friendly and outgoing nature–always deriving great pleasure from helping others. He also discovered that he loved working with his hands, and coupled with his interest in helping others, this led him to consider pursuing a career in dentistry. He first attended the SJM Dental College in India, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in dental surgery in 2000. Eager to pursue further professional education in this field, he moved to the United States. He attended Houston Health Science Centre, where he obtained his master’s degree in public health in 2006, before moving to New York City, where he finally obtained his doctorate degree in dental surgery at New York University’s College of Dentistry in 2007.
Dr. Emani married his beautiful wife in 2005, and he is the father of two amazing children. Along with being a devoted husband and father, Dr. Emani demonstrates his love for dentistry and service to others in the care he puts into every client relationship.
Dr. Emani has been working in both public and private health settings since 2006, helping families with their dental needs–with a particular focus on delivering outstanding, compassionate dental care to children. Dr. Emani and his team pride themselves on being the consummate professionals their patients need and want, while also maintaining the friendly and cheerful atmosphere that helps to make dental treatments comfortable.
Dr. Emani is a member of the ADA, Academy of General Dentistry ADD, SCDA, and the Greater Columbia Dental Association. He has participated in numerous community service and outreach projects, including a mission trip to Guatemala, as well as charity and volunteer work.
In his free time, Dr. Emani enjoys tennis, bicycling, hiking, reading and meditating. He chose to settle in the small town of Cayce, South Carolina because it is not unlike the small towns he grew up in, and because the weather, the family values, the culture and the southern hospitality make him feel at home.
