Meet Dr. Rockne

Dr. Emily Rockne joined Smile Zone in 2018, creating the dynamic doctor duo we know and love today! Dr. R brought fresh, innovative ideas and some of the best “dad jokes” you’ll ever hear!


Big smiles all around!

Dr. Rockne graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Murray State University in Kentucky. She then went on to dental school at the University of Louisville, graduating in 2012. Dr. Rockne spent the next four years practicing as a general dentist in the United States Navy.

After her rewarding and educational experiences in the Navy, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a pediatric dentist. Dr. Rockne accomplished this dream after two years of specialty training through one of the nation’s premier academic medical centers, NYU-Langone. Dr. Rockne, her husband, and their three beautiful children absolutely love Springfield and have been pleasantly surprised with how quickly it has felt like home! Together, they love being outdoors- hiking, camping, and swimming.

Dr. Rockne is excited to provide a nurturing work environment where kids feel safe, welcome, and free to be their silly selves!
