If there was ever a contest for the most original excuse given for having to cancel a dental appointment, Dr. Martin is sure one of his patients would win.

We here at Martin Taylor Dentistry understand that sometimes appointments need … Continue reading

5 Ways to Avoid Periodontal Disease

The stages of periodontal disease

Let’s be honest. Many of us see commercials that talk about gingivitis and we don’t see it as some huge earth-shaking health issue. Maybe we think toothpaste companies are attempting to sell their product using some fancy made-up terminology. In some cases it almost sounds as menacing as cooties and just about as real. Truth is this gingivitis is very real, and it is an indicator that something is definitely wrong. If left unattended, gingivitis will lead to a much more serious condition known as periodontal disease.  The good news is gingivitis is completely reversible. The bad news is periodontal disease is … Continue reading

Dental Treatment Plans

Old couple surprising when looking they bills

As Sam sat in Dr. Martin’s dental chair he was trying to remember the last time he was here. He remembers going in when one of his teeth cracked after he bit into an almond at the Millers’ Christmas party in 2004. Sam blushed when he realized it had been 10 years. He remembers that Dr. Martin was great at getting him in on an emergency basis that day, and had done a great job fixing his tooth. But now he had horrible pain in a different spot and part of his gum had swollen up. Even though Sam brushed … Continue reading

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
