"From my first phone call to make the appointment to the checkout counter, everyone was professional and had a personality. Dr Taylor explained the dental plan for my son. His chair-side manner was more than I could ever expected. He spoke directly to my son about his interests, hobbies, etc. Took his time and we did not feel rushed. The hygienist was gracious and kept the cleaning moving while keeping my son at ease. I would give 10 stars if I could." Lisa W. Read more Dental Reviews
Known as one of the leading pediatric and special needs dentists in the region, F. William Taylor, DDS, MS, draws patients from throughout the Southeast.
Born in Morristown, Tennessee, Dr. Taylor attended the School of Dentistry at Emory University in 1981. After graduation, Dr. Taylor completed two additional years of study in pediatric dentistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, one of the highest-ranked dental schools in the country. He holds a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Pediatric Dentistry and a Master's degree in science. He also completed a one-year fellowship in dentistry for those with special needs.
1990, Dr. Taylor was certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. This voluntary certification, which includes rigorous examinations and takes between five to eight years to complete, is achieved by only a small percentage of dentists nationwide.
Dr. Taylor is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Christian Medical Society, the Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics. He currently serves as a clinical instructor in dentistry at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and is a member of one of the two Cranial Facial Anomalies Teams in Tennessee. He has received several high-profile appointments by elected officials, including a post on the Governor’s Family Involvement Task Force of the Tennessee Children’s Service Commission and the Mayor of Nashville’s Advisory Committee for the handicapped. Dr. Taylor has also participated in dozens of mission trips to third-world countries such as Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Dominican Republic, St. Kitts and Jamaica, where he provides much-needed dental services to the needy.
Dr. Taylor is active in and past president of both the Hendersonville Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Hendersonville. He and his family are members of First Baptist Church of Hendersonville. In his spare time, Dr. Taylor enjoys recreational sports and spending time with his wife and three children.
Dr. Sean Doyle earned his degree in dental medicine from the University of Kentucky in 1993. He was immediately accepted to the University of Pennsylvania orthodontic residency program in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and was awarded his certificate in the specialty of orthodontics in 1995.
Following his completion of the orthodontic residency, Dr. Sean, as the patients and parents refer to him, joined his father's orthodontic practice which was established in 1971. Although his father, Dr. D., retired in 2015, Dr. Sean continues to practice orthodontics with the same high quality standards his father established.
One thing that sets our practice apart from others is that I like to get to know the patients and parents on a personal level. I enjoy the interaction with the patients and parents and finding out as much as I can about them. I am committed to every patient having a great experience in our office as well as achieving a beautiful, comfortable, functional and healthy smile.
Education:University of Kentucky (undergraduate studies) 1986-1989
I am very active in continuing my education through orthodontic and dental meetings and dental study groups. I take much more continuing education than is required each and every year. I enjoy learning and implementing new techniques in our practice. I have practiced around the Nashville Tennessee area since 1995.
Professional Memberships:American Association of Orthodontists
Outside the office
I reside just outside Nashville with my wife, Cathy, my son Kameron and daughter Kendall. I frequent the YMCA and play basketball, racquetball, and golf in my spare time. I also enjoy yard work so you can find me working in the yard throughout most of the year.
