As a child Sonya Taylor had a desire to become a dentist and she has thankfully been able to fulfil this desire. Dr. Acree has lived locally most of her life and is a graduate of Albany State University (Summa cum laude - 1990) and the Medical College of Georgia (1994). She has been in the dental field since she was 12 1/2 years old – when her father (also a local dentist) put her to work in his office to earn money for a special outfit that she wanted. Prior to joining Albany Area Primary Health Care in 2011, Dr. Acree owned Glover Dental Centre, LLC which had clinical offices in Albany and Ashburn, GA. She is also a real estate entrepreneur. Dr. Acree enjoys being an active member of St. Teresa Catholic Church and is involved with various organizations in the community including The Links, Inc, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She currently serves as Treasurer for Albany State University’s Foundation Board. Dr. Acree married Mathis Acree in August of 2011, and they have two wonderful children—Taylor Anne and Lesland Grace. For her the practice of dentistry is therapeutic and a priceless gift for her patients.
