Taylor Funk, DMD
As a graduate of Midwestern University School of Dental Medicine near Chicago, IL; Dr. Taylor Funk practiced privately in the Chicago area before finding his way to Arizona with his wife Dr. Jordyn Funk. Once here, Dr. Taylor rooted himself at his new dental home near Pinnacle Peak and the McDowell mountains. Dr. Taylor has been delivering quality care since taking over Pinnacle Peak Dental Care with his wife, Dr. Jordyn, in 2019. Pinnacle Peak Dental Care has been in the area from the early 2000s and since Dr. Taylor and Dr. Jordyn have taken over, the practice has grown tremendously. They have expanded the services offered to include specialty procedures, and has gained the prestige as one of the premiere dental offices in their community.
Beyond the reputation of the practice, Dr. Taylor is a personable, caring dentist and did not lose his Midwest charm he got while living in the Chicago area. He is professional, easy going, thoughtful, makes you feel comfortable during your appointment and explains everything thoroughly so you understand exactly what is happening at each stage of your treatment.
Patients and their families can find comfort in his ability to make every dental visit an enjoyable experience. Dr. Taylor is dedicated to excellence in every area of his life and seeks out countless hours of continuing education opportunities to bring the best dentistry has to offer. He offers a wide variety of services from: General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Injectables like Botox and Juvéderm, Oral Surgery, Emergency Dentistry, Invisalign, Root Canal treatments, TMJ therapy, Sleep Apnea Devices and more; he is ready to provide you with the care you deserve.
His professional activities also include volunteering locally and abroad to provide dental care to underserved patients. One trip that stands out is a 3-day mission trip to the Dominican Republic where he was able to help over 200 patients by providing care to people who have never seen a dentist in their life. Potential patients waited in lines for over 8 hours to be seen by a dentist to get out of pain.
It is important to Dr. Taylor to have state of the art equipment and it shows in their office. We have re-invested and have state of the art equipment at Pinnacle Peak Dental Care. We were able to donate enough of our gently used equipment to start two dental clinics in Mexico and Haiti through a non-profit organization.
In his free time, Dr. Taylor enjoys camping, backpacking/hiking, traveling, landscape photography, playing basketball, shooting archery/firearms and off-roading. He previously owned and managed painting construction companies in California, Nevada and Utah for 10 years before attending dental school. Above all else, he loves spending time with his wife Jordyn and his family.
One thing on his bucket list: Get scuba certified and return to Bora Bora to dive there!
