Corey A. Taylor D.D.S , M.D
Born in Roanoke, VA, Dr. Corey Taylor became interested in dentistry for its inherent ability to immediately improve a person’s quality of life. He is devoted to caring and comforting those in need.
Dr. Taylor is a proud Hokie, receiving his Bachelor of Science at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. He then traveled to Richmond, VA., where he attended Virginia Commonwealth University and was awarded a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree finishing in the top 5% of his class. During that time, his experience in the operating room fostered an interest in surgery. He continued to widen his experience through participation in research projects and volunteering for mission of mercy and RAM projects where he provided dental care to the underserved. Dr. Taylor believes that experience and diligence to continuing education is the best way to serve patients. As a result, he attended an MD-integrated oral and maxillofacial surgery program at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, where he obtained his medical degree and graduated with distinction. His extensive experience at UK both in the operating room and clinical settings helped expand his knowledge and expertise in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Dr. Taylor had the privilege to serve as chief resident during his final year there.
Dr. Taylor’s specialties in oral and maxillofacial surgery include extractions, removal of wisdom teeth, corrective jaw surgery, bone grafting, implants, biopsies, pathology, jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and facial trauma surgery. He incorporates the latest dental technology to improve the accuracy and predictability of dental implants and corrective jaw surgery, known as orthognathic surgery. His extensive education and experience with anesthesia also gives him the ability to perform these procedures safely and comfortably in the office.
In his free time, Dr. Taylor enjoys spending time with his wife, Sara, and daughter, Olivia, exploring parks and outdoor spaces. He enjoys cooking, golfing, and gardening. He and his family are looking forward to growing roots in Charlotte and serving their community whether that is in oral surgery or by being a helpful neighbor.
