Teresa M. Scott, DDS is a unique kind of dentist. First and foremost, she LISTENS. She listens so she can best understand YOUR unique dental needs. She takes a gentle and compassionate holistic approach, easing any concerns you might have by providing valuable patient education on the oral/systemic health connection. Reasoning that an educated patient is likely to make better decisions about their dental care, she strives to provide the highest standard of personalized dental care using her skilled training and the latest advances in dental technology.
