They've always been able to get me in the door in less than 24 hours when I've had an "emergency" situation which has been twice now. Quick to action, polite and friendly as usual, & I always leave with quality work I'm happy with. It's why I keep coming back.

I live over an hour and a half from Dr Missy's office. I must pass 100 dental offices between my house and Taylor Made Smiles, but I won't go anywhere else. I love Dr Missy and her staff and couldn't be happier with my dental care.

Dr. Taylor and her staff, especially GiGi and Carmen, are exceptional. They greeted me like I had been a patient there for years. I felt so at home and comfortable. If you are looking for a dentist and dental hygienist thathas an awesome bedside manner and cares about your teeth, please give them a call. I was very impressed when they handed me a bag, after my procedure with Soup, applesauce and pudding for me to eat. They will definitely take care of you.

It's always a pleasure going to Taylor Made Smiles. Dr Taylor is very nice, professional, and clearly knowledgeable on dentistry, and I appreciate her sense of humor. Her dental hygienist, Courtland, is simply wonderful. She's so energetic,cheery, funny and beautiful. She always puts a smile on my face and the reason I look forward to going to the dentist. The rest of the staff are all very friendly and just an overall positive place.

The whole dental team is fantastic and cares about your overall health. Dr. Missy has been my dentist for almost 10 years. She's extremely knowledgeable. I have a rare neurological disease and she had a general awareness of my condition butdid some additional research so that when I came back for my next visit she let me know things to monitor, as it relates to my dental health. I highly recommend Dr. Missy.

Appointment was wonderful!! I typically have to be sedated for dental work, time would not allow and Dr. Taylor and her team were amazing, I think I might be able to start getting work done without sedation in the future!!

I have been going to Dr Missy for 8yrs - I would never go anywhere else. They have taken such great care of me over the years! I've had the same hygienist for the past 5 yrs --- she knows mewell and gives me great advise; and we have a great visit each time I'm there. Dr Missy has replaced all of my gold crowns with porcelains ... and they look amazing. Thank you!
