Dr. Scott's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Scott "I feel truly blessed to be an orthodontist and am grateful to be in a profession where I look forward to coming to work every day. I help people achieve their goals of health, happiness, and self-esteem through orthodontic treatment and enjoy seeing the smiling faces of my patients when they’re in our office. I enjoy hearing about what’s going on in my patients’ lives when they come in for their appointments, whether it is academics, family, or work, and I find that I learn something new and interesting from them each day. Education Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Tennessee, Memphis Master of Science in Dentistry – Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas Certificate in Orthodontics – Baylor College of Dentistry, Dallas I have been practicing orthodontics for more than 30 years. I continually study and attend continuing education courses. I keep up-to-date on the newest and best orthodontic treatments and technology. I believe that my involvement in continuing education enables me to provide the most efficient, effective, and comfortable treatment for my patients.

I have done extensive lecturing on various orthodontic treatment techniques in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Israel, Germany, Poland, France, Sweden, the Philippines, China, Thailand, and Denmark. I have also had the pleasure of having my research published in Clinical Impressions, a leading orthodontic journal. Outside the Office My Wife, Aliece, and i have two grown sons, Brad and Taylor, two daughters-in-law, Stacy and Rachel, and three precious grandchildren, Maddy and Kate, and Cullen who are the lights of my life.

I enjoy golf, snow skiing, weights and cardio training.
