Meet your St Joseph Dental Office Doctors
Choosing health care providers these days is not easy. We want you to know that we understand that. You’ll find that our St Joseph dental office does things a little bit differently than most. Probably because we approach our relationship with you a little bit different than most other dentists do. It doesn’t mean that we think we’re better, just different. We focus on you as a person and what your needs are. We take the time to get to know you. We think the way we connect with people is what makes us special. You fully appreciate the fact that as a resident of St. Joseph, you have your choice of dental health care providers. It is our intention to do more than care for your teeth, we’d like to think we were caring for you as a person as well. We hope you feel that with every interaction you have with every team member you come in contact with. We love living in St. Joseph and we think being able to provide our community this type of relationship in a dental office is important to our overall mission in life.
We invite you to find out more about us and our team (who we are extremely proud of).

Dr. Tim Taylor
Dr. Taylor and his wife Kandis are 28-year residents of Trimble, Missouri. They have the blessing of two daughters, Emily, who is a resident in pediatric dentistry at Indiana University, Riley Hospital, and Laura, a recent graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia. The entire family enjoys the outdoors. Dr. Taylor especially enjoys hunting and fishing with his daughters. He likes to report that his daughter’s goal in the expeditions is to show him up, which they often do.
He very much enjoys serving the people in and around Saint Joseph as a valued member of our office and dental community. He will treat you as a member of his family.
“I have dedicated my career to being a continuous student and teacher and strive to provide excellent clinical dentistry to all my patients. It is a real joy to be joining Dr. Curry where we implement those values and principles into practice every day. Northwest Missouri is a great place to practice because of the kind of people who live here.”
