Dentist, Owner

Carolyn Taggart-Burns, DDS

“I chose dentistry because I have a passion to help others and use my creative skills. I chose general dentistry because I believe in treating the person as a whole. As a general dentist, I am the gatekeeper for my patients’ overall oral health success. Working with patients, working with my hands and creating esthetic outcomes is quite compelling for me.

“I enjoy seeing the smiles on my patients’ faces and the many hugs we exchange. I strive to know each patient as a person so I can give them personalized, individualized care. Everyone has a story and, although I am just a small speck in their life stories, I can give them positive experiences and outcomes. I can give them optimal oral health that lasts a lifetime.

“I am a restorative dentist at the core. I love rebuilding things that have broken down and turning them into successful functioning oral health. I love creating while achieving comfort and harmony. My goals are my patients’ goals.”

In her free time, Dr. Taggart-Burns loves to run, read and spend time with her family. She enjoys the arts and sporting events. Her personal interests right now revolve around watching her son and daughter growing up and enjoying life!

Associate Dentist

Aubry Monnier, DMD

Dr. Monnier’s primary motivation is to perform the absolute best dentistry available in an effort to improve the quality of life of her patients. As a General Dentist, Dr. Monnier ensures individually personalized oral health plans and treatment from start to finish with undivided focus, unmatched compassion, and unbeatable skill.

Dr. Monnier’s education took her to schools in South Dakota and Arizona, but now she’s back in Omaha to serve a community she has always called home. Aubry’s familiarity with Dr. Taggart-Burns and Millard Oaks Dental spans more than 12 years. As a high school student, she began coming to the office as Dr. Taggart-Burns’ patient. After college, Aubry returned to Millard Oaks as a Dental Assistant before heading to Arizona to earn her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from Midwestern University in Glendale.

In her free time, you might find Dr. Monnier cooking a healthy meal, practicing Bikram Yoga, immersed in a book, or discovering a new restaurant.
