Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Thomas M. Taylor, DMD

Dr Thomas M TaylorBorn and raised in Del Rio, Thomas Taylor left, after graduating from Del Rio High School, for college. Upon graduation from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State) with a finance degree, Tommy took a job with Kraft Foods, peddling many of the fine foods for which Kraft was known. Kraft moved Tommy to Tulsa, OK to take over as an account manager for a growing chain. After two years in Oklahoma, he knew that he wanted to return to Texas and especially Del Rio. It was then that he began his pursuit of a career in dentistry with the goal of joining his dad, Dr. L.G. Taylor. He moved to Austin and completed his pre-requirements in order to apply to dental school.

After numerous interviews and school tours, Tommy settled on Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA. “I chose Boston because it was one of the most unique cities in which I interviewed,” says Dr. Taylor. After spending almost four years in Boston and loving just about every moment, Dr. Thomas Taylor was ready to come back home and on January 4, 1999 he saw his first patient as a licensed dentist. “I’ll never forget that day, because not only was it my first day, but as soon as the patient sat down, the power went out and stayed out for about 30 minutes. I’ve never liked making people wait,” says Dr. Taylor, “and now I start out behind on my schedule.”

Drs. Tommy and L.G. practiced for another two and a half years in the 750 square foot office that Dr. L.G. had begun 40 years earlier. On October 8, 2001, Amistad Dentistry moved to their current location. “I had a lot of memories as a kid and helping out emptying trash and assisting Dad in the Main Street office and was a bit sad to see the end of that era and so I figured Dad would be, too. At the end of our first day at our current office, Dad and I (as we often did) were visiting in our back office and I asked him if he missed the old place and his response was an emphatic, ‘Not a bit!’” recalls Dr. Tommy.

Dr. Tommy met his wife Dayna after she moved to Del Rio to take the job as Rehab Director at the Val Verde Regional Medical Center. Dayna’s version of how they met goes something like this: “I moved to Del Rio with the plan of staying about a year, then move back to Phoenix. After living here for about six months and overdue for my regular hygiene appointment, I asked the ladies with whom I worked what dentist they recommended and they said Dr. Taylor. They then added that he was also single. So I made an appointment in March to have my teeth cleaned and we were married in August.”


Dr. Janelle Czer, DDS

Dr Janelle CzerAs early as high school, Janelle knew she wanted to work in the dental field. This passion continued through college, as Janelle graduated from Andrews University with a Bachelors of Science in Biology, and minors in Chemistry and Business Management. She enjoyed serving as president of the University’s Pre-Dental Club her final year. Dental school found her traveling to Southern California to attend Loma Linda University School of Dentistry.

At LLU, Janelle volunteered often with the outreach programs provided at the school, giving dental care to those in her local community. She appreciated the chance to help others and serve those in need, reasons that she chose a dental career. Along with volunteering, Janelle was involved with several research studies, one of which gained publication. In addition to earning her dental degree, Janelle met Luke, a classmate who later became her husband just a few months before graduation. Following dental school, Janelle found herself back in her home state as she completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Southern Illinois University. As a professional, she strives to be a life-long learner, not only to aid in knowledge and technique, but especially for the benefit of her patients.

Janelle currently enjoys being a part of the team at Amistad Dentistry. She and her husband appreciate the friendly Del Rio community and are enjoying the beautiful southern Texas terrain. Janelle enjoys cooking and baking, date nights with her husband and spending time with family and friends.
