Orthodontics Residents

Taneisha Livingston

Taneisha Livingston, Orthodontics Class of 2022, grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma with her beloved big (but younger) brothers. During her senior year of high school, some family friends graciously offered to take her with them to tour schools in North Carolina. It became the trip of a lifetime when she stopped in a charming college town called Chapel Hill.

She started her Carolina journey there in 2004, receiving a bachelor’s degree in biology. After taking some time off to work, travel, and gain valuable perspective from life experiences, she returned to the UNC Adams School of Dentistry to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and completed their General Practice Residency program. She feels excited and honored to return once again to study orthodontics.

During dental school, Taneisha met her husband, Anthony, who is currently studying to become a pediatric dentist. In their spare time they enjoy cooking, working out together, exploring the world and spending time with family.
