Dr. Emilie Russo Schenck

Dr. Schenck has been practicing family dentistry since 2005. She grew up in Metairie where she met her high school sweetheart, Mark. She obtained her BS in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from the University of New Orleans. She graduated from the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in May 2005. While in dental school, Emilie and Mark had two boys, Brennan and Matthew. They lost their home to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. A year later she moved to Mandeville, where they reside to this day. Dr. Schenck purchased Dr. Sutherland’s practice March 2011 and has relocated the practice to Hwy. 59 in Mandeville. In 2012, Dr. Schenck and Mark welcomed a precious girl, Eva, to their family.

Dr. Schenck is also a cancer survivor, so she is truly dedicated to the health and well-being of her patients. She has implemented higher standards for her patients. It is her duty to inform her patients of any and every possible issue that can affect a healthy life. There is a huge oral systemic/mouth body connection that patients have the right to know about, and she is committed to educating her patients on dental health.
