About

Bio

Dr. Dale Amanda Tylor was born in Montreal, Canada, and she resided there until completing medical school at the world-renowned school of medicine at McGill University in 2002. She was then accepted into General Surgery internship and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville, which she completed in 2007. While there, she was given an Excellence in Medical Education Award as a resident educator. She then elected to pursue further specialized fellowship training in Pediatric Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego, affiliated with the University of California, San Diego from 2007-2009. After fellowship training, Dr. Tylor joined the faculty at Vanderbilt University, which is currently ranked 7th in the United States for Best Hospitals for Ears, Nose and Throat on US News and World Reports review of all hospitals in the country. She was an Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology and helped to teach medical students, residents, and fellows on the care of children with problems of the ears, nose and throat. She was on the medical school admissions committee and was a faculty affiliate advisor for active medical students. She helped to build a program to address tongue tongue, known as ankyloglossia, in newborns, and treated babies from many surrounding states. She was a member of the Vascular Malformations team, and helped to streamline a system to treat babies with the common vascular tumors called hemangiomas in a minimally invasive manner with medication instead of surgery. She was also on the Cochlear Implant team and Auditory Neuropathy team, and treated many patients with complex chronic ear conditions and hearing loss. While there, she assisted with the Innovations team to improve the electronic medical record system to improve how patient information is used to help provide the best possible care to patients. Dr. Tylor has a significant interest in public health and patient education and has been working on completing a Master of Public Health through the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom. She is a member of the Media and Public Relations Committee of the American Academy of Otolaryngology and has been featured as an expert Otolaryngologist in a number of publications read by hundreds of thousands including Shape magazine, Women’s Day, Real Simple, Spry and others, and has been on television segments and on the internet. She has even been an expert fact checker on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Dr. Tylor has also helped to teach other doctors how to work with reporters and the public. Dr. Tylor has expertise in treating disorders of the Ears, Nose, and Throat, and has special skill in treating children, in ear and hearing issues, and with minimally invasive management of the head and neck. She is experienced in utilizing balloons in the sinuses and airway, performing sialoendoscopy to address certain salivary problems, and performing complex ear procedures including cochlear implantation, bone anchored hearing aid placement, tympanoplasty and mastoidectomy In 2013, Dr. Tylor relocated to the Bay area to be with her husband, Benjamin Johnson, who is a resident in Radiology at Stanford University. He was formerly a high school teacher and has master’s degrees in education and clinical investigation, and is very involved in Radiology outreach projects in Uganda and elsewhere in Africa. They have 2 goldendoodles. Outside of medicine, Dr. Tylor enjoys running, snowboarding, traveling and enjoying the foodie opportunities that the Bay area offers. She is currently board certified in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery both in the United States and Canada. <strong>Education</strong> <ul><li>1997 – Natural Science Degree with Peace Studies Certificate, John Abbott College, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, Canada</li><li>2002 – Doctor of Medicine, McGill University; Montreal, Quebec, Canada</li><li>2002 - 2003 – <em>General Surgery Internship</em>: Department of General Surgery, University of Florida; Gainesville, Florida</li><li>2003 - 2007 – <em>Otolaryngology Residency</em>: Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, University of Florida; Gainesville, Florida</li><li>2007 - 2009 – <em>Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship</em>:<strong> </strong>Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego, affiliated with University of California-San Diego; San Diego, California</li><li>2009-current – <em>Master of Public Health degree (dissertation in editing)</em>: University of Liverpool; Liverpool, United Kingdom</li></ul> <strong>Certification and Licensure</strong> <ul><li>Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada 2005</li><li>Board Certified: American Board of Otolaryngology 2008</li><li>Board Certified: Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada 2008</li><li>California State Medical License 2007</li><li>Tennessee State License 2009</li></ul> <strong>Honors/Awards</strong> <ul><li>1995 – Wendell Roberts Award, Beaconsfield High School - “Presented annually to the outstanding female student of the graduating class who best combines the qualities of scholarship, citizenship, and sportsmanship”</li><li>1995 – Finalist, Montreal Board of Trade Art Scholarship</li><li>1995-1997 – Honor Roll, John Abbott College</li><li>1998 – Golden Key National Honor Society nomination</li><li>1998 – Dean’s Honor Roll, McGill University</li><li>2002 – “Outstanding Otolaryngology Medical Student” of the graduating class, McGill University Medical School</li><li>2006 – “Society of Teaching Scholars Outstanding Resident Teacher Award” for the Department of Otolaryngology, University of Florida</li><li>2007 – Second place, University of Florida Otolaryngology Resident Research Award: “De Novo Head and Neck Cancer in Renal Transplant Recipients, The University of Florida Experience”</li><li>2007 – First place, Society for Ear Nose and Throat Advancements in Children Poster Competition: “Defining Quality in Health Care: Analysis of a Clinical Pathway for Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy”</li><li>2009 – Second place, Delivery of Health Care poster section, American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology: “Survey of Thyroglossal Duct Cyst in a Subspecialty Referral Practice”</li><li>2009 – Quality of Care Prize, Society for Ear Nose and Throat Advancements in Children “Standardization of the Patient Care Setting as a Means to Enhance Safety Quality of Care”</li></ul> <strong>Affiliations</strong> <ul><li>Resident member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery 2003-2007</li><li>Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology 2008-</li><li>Member of American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology 2012-</li><li>Fellow of American College of Surgeons 2012-</li><li>Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics 2012-</li><li>Member of the Society for Ear Nose and Throat Advances in Children 2012-</li></ul>
