Audrey Taylor, DDS – Dentist
Dr Taylor knew her calling was to dentistry the day she sat down as a dental assistant. Dr Taylor worked her way up from the bottom, as she wanted to really understand every position in the dental office. She attended Johnson County Community College where she received her degree in Dental Hygiene. After seven years of hygiene, she found herself back in school, where she graduated from UMKC school of Dentistry. Immediately following dental school, Dr Taylor did a one-year General Practice Residency followed by two-year combined Prosthodontics Residency at the Kansas City VAMC. Dr Taylor was able to relocate to Michigan where she had the opportunity to teach students the fine art of prosthodontics. After she began a family, she and her husband David moved back to Kansas to start her private practice in Topeka. Through it all Dr Taylor has raised three successful children to young adulthood, managed a thriving practice and continues to be an active member of Heartland Dental Study Club and her church. Dr Taylor is known for her kind words, gentle touch, and commitment to her patients. She enjoys listening to the small details of their lives and working with them to create a perfect smile while putting their apprehensions at bay.
