Why Did You Choose to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Taxin actually experienced a serious dental injury while in the second grade – one of his front teeth were knocked out! As a result, he spent a good amount of time in the dentist’s office regularly. This incident helped him better understand the importance of good dental care and how a person’s smile strongly affects their personality and sense of self-confidence. Plus, he always enjoyed working with his hands growing up and liked the idea of owning his own business.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Dr. Taxin achieved his Doctor of Dental Surgery at Farleigh Dickinson University – but his education didn’t end there. He also completed a residency at Morrisania NFCC and attended countless courses at the world-renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. There, he became well-versed in a number of different dental specialties, including full-mouth reconstruction, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and TMJ therapy. He is currently a member of the following organizations:

  • American Dental Association
  • American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • Academy of Laser Dentistry
  • American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
  • International Association of Orthodontics
  • Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation
  • Centers for Dental Medicine
  • International Association of Comprehensive Aesthetics

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

When he isn’t busy at work, you can often find Dr. Taxin helping run his wife’s business – she lectures on the national level about medical/dental coding and billing. He has two sons (one of whom is currently in dental school), a daughter, two step-sons, and a young granddaughter whom he loves playing with. He is also a big sports fan (particularly the Jets) and additionally spends his time walking his dog, watching movies, and riding his bike.
