About Dr Mark Taylor

Dr Taylor was among the first ten dentists in Australia to undertake the pioneering Clinical Dental Implant Masters programme at Griffith University’s School of Oral Health on the Gold coast.

It covered both the surgical and restorative aspects of implant treatments. He successfully gained the registrable qualification, Masters in Clinical Dental Implants after completing the two year Masters program.

Dr Mark Taylor first qualified as a dentist in 1990 at the prestigious Royal London Medical and Dental Hospital in the University of London, U.K. The next year in 1991 he gained the ” Vocational Training Award” at the Charring Cross Hospital postgraduate centre, London, U.K.

Mark's Background

In 1997,  Dr Taylor and his wife moved to Australia and settled on the Gold Coast. He established himself and became a principal at a prestigious Southport practice.  He was based there for about 17 years during which time he sold up to a corporate group. Dr Taylor has now chosen to work independently which gives him the freedom to provide his patients with the highest quality of care and treatment.

As such we moved to Robina Quays where Dr Taylor and his wife personally helped design a beautiful state-of-the-art 3 surgery practice with leading dental technology.

Our practice also houses a world first dental software in our Vatech X-ray machine.

We provide the full range of general dental and dental implant treatments. We welcome your family and you at our brand new dental practice!

His loyal patients routinely refer to him as “a beautiful human being who is a brilliant dentist!”

Given his significant contributions to the public health system, Dr Remon became the Director of Oral Health on the Gold Coast where he helped to implement effective strategies in educating and maintaining acceptable standards in oral health across the Gold Coast.

His compassion for the orally underprivileged was piqued in his home country where he first began his career as a general dentist after graduating from the University of Khartoum in 1986.

He followed his passion for understanding more in optimal dental wellbeing and moved to Australia with his family to further his skills and knowledge in dentistry. In 1996 he successfully completed his Master’s degree from the University of Queensland where he developed a special focus on Bruxism and Children’s dentistry.

Dr Remon worked for Queensland health as a principal dentist in charge of the school dental services, where he excelled in attending to the dental health of children across the Gold Coast.

In 2006 Dr Remon transitioned to the private sector. This provided him the autonomy to hone his skills in areas of dentistry that he was especially interested in, including helping restore dental implants.

Given his aspirations in providing quality dental care for his wide patient base, he sought Robina Quays Dental Care. With our boutique practice set up, Dr Remon enjoys doing what he does best, provide exceptional care to his valued patients.

In his free time, Remon loves camping, fishing and 4-wheel driving with his lovely family.
