Dr. Renee Taylor, DDS
Dr. Taylor grew up in a family of eight in St. Cloud, Minnesota. There, she graduated from Cathedral High School where she participated in gymnastics. She then obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Taylor continued her education at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1991. She is a member of The American Dental Association, The Minnesota Dental Association and the Crow Wing Dental Society.

Dr. Taylor has a great sense of humor yet is very serious and precise when it comes to her work as a dentist. She is a skilled, knowledgeable and experienced practitioner. She values herself as a perfectionist whether fabricating beautiful, flawless crowns or veneers for a patient or treating an infected, painful tooth. She especially enjoys the esthetic and implant aspect of dentistry. Dr. Taylor will always put the needs of the patient first and realizes not every person is the same or seeking the same outcome with their dental needs. Because of her concerning personality, she seems to be especially patient with those who are not comfortable with dental treatment.

Outside of the dental office Dr. Taylor is very involved with martial arts. She earned her 3rd degree black belt in tae kwon do in May of 2009. She also instructs at the martial arts school. In her free time she enjoys running with her dogs, cooking, and especially spending time with her husband and three children.
