Dr. Kent became a dentist when, after talking to his own dentist, he realized that this profession has all the things he was looking for – the science aspect, involvement with people, and hand skills. He loves the relationships he forms with our patients as well as the clinical part of dentistry. He truly likes people and treats everyone how he wants to be treated. His patients know that they will always receive family treatment here.
For Dr. Taylor, dentistry offers many of the aspects of life he is most drawn to. First, he loves people, especially getting to know new people, learning about them, and learning from them. He enjoys building relationships with others based on mutual respect and trust, and he loves helping and serving others. Dentistry also offers him the challenge of finding solutions to both simple and complex problems.
Dr. Martin’s father, Dr. Kent, was always present in his life, whether it was coaching him in sports or enjoying family time on weekends. He saw that his father worked hard but had a very predictable schedule. From an early age, he knew he wanted a career that afforded him the same opportunity to work hard but have a great balance in life. He felt dentistry would be an excellent fit to use his hands and artistic ability.
