Message from Dr. Taliaferro

“I’ve wanted to be a pediatric dentist as long as I can remember! In elementary school I did a science experiment to show how different beverages can decay teeth. My dad is a veterinarian so he supplied dog teeth to test in different kinds of drinks – surprisingly orange juice was the worst (even worse than soda)!

I love working in pediatrics because I get to be silly with kids everyday! There’s nothing better than making a kid laugh while fixing their precious smile. Kids just make everything so fun – you never know what they’re going to say!

I’m passionate about what I do because I have the opportunity to give my patients a great dental experience, while setting them up for a lifetime of good dental experiences and oral health.”
