On Track Helping Kids in Need

No child should have to memorize his multiplication tables while in horrific pain. Yet that is exactly what 9-year-old Ben was trying to do. His teeth always seemed to hurt but the pain suddenly got so bad he could barely hold back the tears. But since 9-year-old boys would do anything before crying in front of the whole class, Ben asked to go to the nurse’s office. Thank goodness the nurse at Ben’s school knew about the Tucson dental program known as Grayline!

Eligibility for TUSD Grayline Program

The Grayline Program offers free dental care to underprivileged students in the Tucson Unified School District who are ineligible for other dental programs and who have no dental insurance are eligible. Through Grayline, students in kindergarten through the twelfth grade are provided urgent dental care by volunteer dentists and dental hygienists. After being referred to the program Ben was soon in the dental chair of Dr. William Taylor. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Jeff Martin, two of Tucson’s finest dentists, volunteer their time and incredible skill to serving kids just like Ben. Along with their regular dental practice, Drs. Taylor and Martin treat about one student a week through the Grayline Program. For the many years they have been involved with Grayline, hundreds of children have had their urgent dental needs met by these fine dentists.

Urgent Dental Care Needed

In Ben’s case, the initial urgent dental care needed was extensive. According to Dr. Taylor Ben’s condition is quite typical of the children they see through the Grayline Program. Many years of poor dental hygiene along with having never stepped into a dental office had left Ben with many very large cavities and a horrible swollen abscess. To address the problems that were causing him such excruciating pain, Dr. Taylor performed root canals and then provided Ben with the necessary implants and crowns.

Ben and his mom were beyond pleased with the results. Throughout the needed procedures and follow up visits, they were delighted not only with Dr. Taylor’s amazing skill, but also with the courteous and professional way they were treated by the entire staff at Martin Taylor Dentistry. Along with the urgent dental care provided, Ben received a full teeth-cleaning and his mom was given up-to-date information and education on how to help Ben and the rest of the family maintain good dental health.

Participation in this Tucson dental program at Grayline is just another way two of Tucson’s finest dentists, Dr. Jeff Martin and Dr. William Taylor, volunteer their skill, knowledge, and abilities to the Tucson community. Although they have a well established dental practice with hundreds of loyal patients, they always find ways to participate in programs that help and treat those in the community who are in need.

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.
