Editorial review from Citysearch 2/3/2013

Call Dr. Taylor on Saturday morning at 9:30 am. I told him that I had cracked a tooth awhile back and now I was in a lot of pain that I could not sleep at all. He was very attentive and said he could see me at 11:30 am. From the moment I walked in his door he was there waiting for me. He explain that he was first taking an x-ray to see what was going on before he started. After he took a look at the x-ray he explained that I needed either a root canal or to have the tooth pull. He left the decision to me. I decided to have the root canal done. I have had one before and the experience was not that good. I can not be leave how different this was. From the very beginning to the end Dr. Taylor explained what he was doing and what to expect. The whole procedure took about an hour. I had no pain, he was fast and gentle and always made sure I was OK. I have not had a dentist like Dr. Taylor that really cared for his patient. I am really glad that I found Dr Taylor. \r \r If anyone ever needs a Great Dentist you should not look any further. I high recommend him. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/19/2013

Best Dentist EVER!!! My Fiance just moved to town and her bracket broke off taking a piece of tooth with it. Being a Saturday during a 3 day weekend we were prepared for the worst. I found Dr. Taylor on Citysearch and after a short phone conversation Dr. Taylor asked how quickly we could get to his office. He was a fantastic, personable Dentist. He made us feel like he was our family dentist and he was great with our kids. He was very up front and honest with the pricing and was WAY cheaper than any dentist I've been to. If you are visiting or live in San Diego don't hesitate to visit Dr. Taylor, I guarantee you, your teeth and your wallet will walk away satisfied. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/30/2012

I cracked two teeth last night and was in terrible pain. I also did not want to go around town looking like a hillbilly. I searched the web and called Dr. Taylor. From the onset, I could tell that Dr. Taylor was a professional individual who practiced dentistry to help people. He quoted me the amount for the services I might have to receive. Dentistry is definitely not cheap and I do not blame dentists for being cautious about their use of insurance. more


Had an EXCRUCIATINGLY painful start to a weekend. My entire face was just aching. Since my dentist was closed, I googled emergency dentist in San Diego, and found Dr. Taylor. I gave him a call, and he immediately answered and said that I could head down there to have my teeth looked at. It turns out that I needed to have my wisdom tooth removed, and also had a problem with a lower molar. Both of the teeth were causing the pain. I can confidently say that he was the best dentist that I have ever had! Even better than my current dentist!! He is a pro. He just knew how and why the novacaine would numb me, and was empathetic to my pain. The tooth extraction itself was easy to handle, just knowing how professional his hands are. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend his services if you happen to have an emergency. He said that he specializes in root canals and wisdom teeth. No Joke, he has been the nicest and most talented dentist I've ever had. His office is a bit tricky to find, its in a professional building nested in a residential area, and its on the 3rd floor. Old dark wood elevator, old building, once off the elevator, hit the main hallway and go right. Thank you Dr. Taylor!!! more

Meticulous and Kind 2/20/2012

Cracked a molar on a Sunday morning and by noon I was in the dentist's chair, having my first root canal, courtesy of the extremely professional Dr. Taylor. He stated upfront how much the visit would cost and how long it might take. He explained clearly before each procedure what he was going to do every step of the way, which was a relief and put me at ease instantly. He was thorough, organized, friendly, and caused absolutely NO pain! What a great find! My only suggestion is that he should tell people when they call that he's on the 3rd floor to the right, in an otherwise deserted-on-the-weekend building! His name's hard to find at the bottom of a long directory by the elevator. more


When I was a young girl, I broke my front tooth playing soccer and then again while I was in a lifeguard tournament on the Jersey Shore. I had a temporary, plastic tooth fitted to my front tooth at that time, which held up for about 20 years. I have always been very self-conscious about my teeth. Throughout my life, I had never been diligent about seeing a dentist, either, due to the costs of treatment. Without insurance and knowing that I had a very difficult and lengthy dental process in my future, I vowed to see a dentist after I sat for the California Bar Exam. Unfortunately, my plan was thwarted on Friday evening. While eating (of all things) a Subway sandwich, my temporary tooth finally fell out. more

BEST DENTIST EVER!!!! 10/1/2011

Saturday afternoon, the tooth cracked. My husband found dr.Taylor's phone. The Dr. Was so polite and knowledgeable.He did everything to numb my tooth carefully and accurately. It was annoying tooth, hard to extract, yet he was done very soon, less than in half and hour. I wish I could go to such dentist every day. Way to go Dr. Taylor. more


It was a Sunday morning about 10am and my friend cracked her tooth, was in tons of pain and didn't know what to do. Found Dr. Taylor's name and number....what a lifesaver! Got her in in less than 30 minutes ( he actually drove from his home and met us at the office), fixed her tooth quickly and virtually painlessley and charged a fraction of what he could for such a service. My friend said it was the best novicane shot she's ever had and she has had tons of dental work. He was so caring, gentle and thorough- wish he would go back to full time practice!!!! I would rather pay him out of pocket than go to any of the dentistS on my insurance plan!!! BEST DENTIST EVER!!!!!!!!! more


tODAY i HAD A DENTAL EMERGENCY,,,A BROKEN TOOTH AND LOST FILLING, And we are leaving for a 2 week vacation tomorrow. Even this it was Satureday he answered my call by 7am and had me in his office by 8:30. He as thorough, gental and expllained every part of the process as he worked to put in a good and strong temporary filling. I wish he had a full time practice, although I am glad for him that he is semi retired and only does weekends. And what a valuable service that is! I read the reviews from others before calling him and agree with you all...he is one in a million! I will continue to use him for dental emergencies for myself and my husband! Thanks Dr Taylor! more

Fantastic Caring Wonderful Dentist! 2/21/2011

Dr Taylor was just amazing! He got right back in touch with me on a Sunday Morning and I was sitting in his chair an hour and 11/2 later. He then had to spend 2+ hours dealing with my crazy neurotic dental fears! I needed a root canal and he made me so comfortable! He made adjustments to the way he does things to make sure I was as comfortable as possible even though it made the job harder for him. Soooo very patient and caring. A true gem. Price was what you would pay on any day of the week anywhere else which is also incredible! Thank you for taking such great care of me!! I would call him first for any dental needs! more

OUTSTANDING DENTIST!!!!!!!!!!! 11/28/2010

Dr. Taylor was a saving grace! He did an emergency root canal for me that was the BEST experience I've had with a dentist in the last two decades. Dr. Taylor is all about the patient and that patient feeling zero pain! During the procedure I had a little bit of pain and he immediately stopped the procedure to get more pain medicine on board, then would continuously check on me. If you're a patient that's worried about the pain that goes along with the dentist, worry no more, Dr. Taylor is your DENTIST!!! I would go back in a second and recommend him to work on my children. Thank you Dr. Taylor!!!! more

Great Dentist I wish I could see him all the time 9/11/2010

Dr. Wesley pull my tooth were no one else would. They keep shuffling me to wait for dental surgeon but the pain was so bad I didn't know what to do. Dr. Wesley got me in within 2 hours of calling and then Dr. Wesley when I got to his office began to work on my pain management. He then removed the tooth and I felt 100% better. I wish I would have found Dr. Wesley years ago. I avoid going to the dentist but not if I can come see Dr. Wesley for emergencies. 24 Dental Emergency Weekends is Dr. Welsey's business as has partially retired. more

Excellent Professional Care 8/1/2010

Dr. Taylor was very caring and gentle. Excellent level of communication, professional service, and above all kind, gentle treatment and follow up care. Highly recommend his service. Pros: caring emergency dentistry more

Highly recommended 1/30/2010

I was able to make an appointment at very short notice on Saturday afternoon and found Dr Taylor to be extremely helpful. He provided a clear explanation of my situation (a broken wisdom tooth) and provide an appropriate referral for Monday which has put me completely at ease. Also took the time to look at another tooth which had been troubling me recently. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Taylor. - FP Pros: Excellent emergency dental service more


If you are experiencing dental pain, Dr. Taylor is THE dentist to call. He met me 10 minutes after I called on a Sunday morning. He put me at ease, alleviated my pain and referred me to an outstanding oral surgery practice. By Monday, the tooth was removed and my infection was under control. Thank goodness I found Dr. Taylor who correctly diagnosed the problem and sent me to the right people. If you need dental help, call Dr. Taylor. Pros: Knowledgeable, kind, prompt more
