Dr Steve Taylor is a General Dental Practitioner with a special interest in aesthetic implants, endodontic treatments (root canals) and high quality cosmetic dentistry.
Steve has been a practitioner in Solihull for over 20 years and established his own premier dental practice in Solihull: Squirrels Dental Practice, prior to its acquisition by the JHA group in 2008 and amalgamating with the Manor Road Dental Surgery. Squirrels Dental Practice was the first practice in the West Midlands to be awarded the Investor in People Award in 1999. Steve also has a special interest in treating anxious patients and was awarded the Most Child Friendly Dentist of the Year by Fisher Price in 2006.
Steve qualified from University College of London in December 1985 winning the Cyril De Vere award as the most outstanding student in Oral Surgery and Restorative Dentistry and also the Sheer Award for Prosthetic Dentistry. On graduation he rejoined the Royal Air Force where he worked as Dental Officer in both the United Kingdom and Germany. Steve spent a further 5 years in the Royal Air Force at which time he was offered a MSc in Restorative Dentistry. In 1990 he graduated in the Gold Standard Examination of General Practice and achieved the MGDS diploma for the Royal College of Surgeons, England from which he has completed the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners career pathway and was awarded the Fellowship Diploma. He also trained at Los Angeles for the placement of implants.
Steve is a mentor for the Faculty of General Dental Surgeons and has a strong commitment to post graduate training and education.
Socially, Steve enjoys flying (being a qualified mircroflight pilot), sailing, skiing and keeping fit.
Steve has a very loyal patient base and many patients have remained with him from when he first started working in Solihull. He gets as much as a thrill today from his dentistry as he did when qualifying. He finds huge satisfaction of allowing people to change their life through the confidence that their teeth can give them as they describe a life changing experience.
