Chantele – Certified Dental Assistant, Nurse
My name is Chantele Taylor. I have been working alongside of Dr. Goldberg for two years. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse, and a Certified Dental Assistant. I began my career in dentistry in 2011 after graduating from The University of Buffalo’s Educational Opportunity Center. I worked in a busy generally dentistry practice for four years before pursuing my nursing license. In 2015 I enrolled at Erie One Boces for the LPN program. I graduated and became licensed in October of 2016.
I am a mother, entrepreneur and mentor. I enjoy helping my community. I am a member of a non-profit organization called The Young Women’s Empowerment Academy. The organization strives to provide young at-risk women in the community with the tools and resources they need to pursue their dreams and goals.
My hobbies include spending time with my family and dog, long walks, event planning and extreme couponing.
