Meet Our Doctor
My name is Dr. Shannon Taylor. I am proud to have called the great state of Mississippi home since I was 6 months old. I graduated from the Honors College at Mississippi University for Women (with a B.S. in Mathematics and Biology) and the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s School of Dentistry. Due to my life-long love of learning, I stayed at UMC after my graduation in 2012 to complete a one year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. My various memberships have included Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, and the American Association of Women Dentists. Since finishing my residency, I am happy to report that I have been a very busy Mississippi dentist. The advancements in dental technology are ever-changing, so I enroll in as many continuing education courses as I can every year to keep up with the modern dental world. I enjoy practicing dentistry, but the part I really love about being a dentist is getting to know my patients. Don’t be surprised if I ask you for movie and restaurant recommendations. I am always looking for something new that I have never tried or in some cases, even heard of. So please, feel free to mention some of your favorites when you see me. Who knows? They may become my favorites too.
When I am not at the office, you will often see me next door at Kroger. When my patients see me in there, they always laugh and wonder how much food can my two small children and husband possibly eat? I will tell you, it is a lot! My pug & French bulldog are also champion eaters. I have been enjoying trying Instant Pot recipes lately too, so please feel free to recommend any good ones that you may have as well! My family will appreciate it. In addition to food and movies, my interests include traveling (any beach will do), swimming, reading, and very soon—I am hoping to experience Star Wars Land at Disney World.
I love educating, encouraging, and enabling my patients to set and achieve dental health goals for themselves. I also love hearing about their other achievements in life too. I have been known to brag on my patients when I hear about cool vacations, healthy lifestyle change related weight losses, marriages, graduations, births of children and grandchildren, etc. It makes me happy when my patients share their lives with me (especially when I get to see pictures!). If you are looking for a dental home where you are treated with kindness, respect, and dental expertise, look no further. Please call today 662-895-4737 to set up an appointment to see what we can do for you. I look forward to meeting you.
