Taryn N. Bell (Hardyman), DDS

Dr. Taryn Bell was born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota. She attended the University of Minnesota Duluth to earn a degree in Psychology with a minor in Chemistry. She continued her education at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, where she received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery. It has been Dr. Bell’s dream to be a dentist since she was 4 years old. Her ambition to achieve this goal was continually reaffirmed while she volunteered at the Good Samaritan Dental Clinic for several years and she now looks forward to being able to serve her hometown community once again.

Dr. Bell and her husband, Jake, met in 9th grade and have been inseparable ever since. After living in Duluth for 4 years, followed by 4 years in Minneapolis, they are both thrilled to be back in Rochester with their dog, Millie.

In Dr. Bell’s free time, she enjoys being in the outdoors, hiking, fishing, walking her dog, and staying active at the gym. She also loves to relax with a good movie or Netflix series. In the future, Dr. Bell hopes to be able to adopt another puppy and to spend more time traveling.
