Meet Your Covington Dentist: Dr. Benjamin Taylor
Dr. Benjamin Taylor is a third-generation dentist who knew from an early age that he was interested in dental care. With extensive education and years of experience, patients all over metro Atlanta can trust Dr. Taylor with their oral health.
Dr. Taylor believes in building relationships with patients and improving their lives through bettering dental health.
Education and Residency
Dr. Taylor attended Mercer University where he graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. He went on to attend Georgia Regents University College of Dental Medicine, where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2013.
A Doctor of Dental Medicine degree is an advanced degree that follows an undergraduate degree. It means that a dentist has been educated to practice general dentistry. This program typically lasts an additional four years after undergrad. After graduation, dentists are then required to pass the National Board Dental Examination and a regional clinical board examination. All of these requirements mean you can rest assured that our dentists are more than qualified to treat you when you come into Covington Dental Studio.
During Dr. Taylor’s residency, he also completed the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program in Fort Lewis, Washington.
