Dr. Russell Taylor

Meet Dr. Taylor

I am a native of Fayetteville, North Carolina and I credit my Christian upbringing and 22 years of military service for shaping me into the person I am today. I am the oldest of three brothers and three sisters. When not working, I enjoy working out, reading, attending sporting events, mentoring young adults, and traveling with my family.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from North Carolina State University and received a Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) commission into the United States Army. After 14 years of service as an Army Air Defense Artillery Officer, I decided to pursue a dental career and earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry in Nashville, TN. After graduating from dental school, I completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at Fort Jackson, SC. I then worked several years as an Army General Dentist before returning to school for a post-graduate Endodontic Residency at Fort Bragg, NC and graduated in 2017. Before retiring from the Army in December 2019, I served as the endodontist and clinic chief of an Army Dental Clinic in Fort Eustis, VA.

I’m extremely excited and grateful that I will be continuing my dental career by serving MINT patients in the Dallas area. It will be my pleasure to apply my passion for relieving endodontic pain with the newest technology and dental techniques available. My aim is to ensure my patients walk away no longer fearing root canal treatment. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of such a great team of professionals that will allow me to ensure our patients have painless, sexy smiles!


"They are very nice and considerate ❤️They make you feel comfortable"



"Hands down my favorite place with my favorite people. I went there to get braces and from the moment I walked in the door I felt like family. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Jena was the one who tighten my braces today and her energy was the same full of life and joy (and she is no longer shook😂) I don’t even feel like I have braces she is amazing at her job and very down to earth you should definitely ask for her when you go to this location.BUT wait there’s more the whole team is incredible Tasha has a energy that makes you smile regardless plus she knows nice shoes when she sees them and Stef she’s awesome she’s pays attention to your interest she makes sure you are comfortable and she is a joy to be around everyone at this location feels like family. Wish I could give them more than five stars P.S Brigette your braces are beautiful. Thank you guys for always providing me with A1 service."
