Why We're Different

why we re different

Welcome to the Scott Orthodontics family, where we have treated generations of patients with the high level of orthodontic care they deserve.

Our Dedication to Our Patients

We greet everyone with a warm welcome. We never rush, but take time to listen to our patients and parents, and answer questions with confidence in our knowledge that we have the right information and experience to ease any concerns. We give our patients as much information and support as they need to feel comfortable and confident about their orthodontic decisions. We take the time to truly get to know our patients and develop a unique treatment plan.

Our Use of Technology

As board-certified orthodontists, we offer several treatment options, including orthodontics for children, teens, and adults, which range from traditional metal and clear ceramic braces to the most advanced appliances and braces, including:

Straight Teeth are Our Specialty

Choosing a Board-Certified orthodontic specialist for your orthodontic treatment is a decision that will truly make a difference in your smile. 

An orthodontist is first a general dentist, and then elects to attend an additional two to three years of training at an accredited residency program, then passes national board examinations, in order to become certified as an orthodontist. This training, along with the experience of a practice dedicated solely to orthodontics, gives orthodontists a unique ability to create a customized treatment plan and carry out safe, predictable, and efficient treatment.

We are a True Private Practice

As one of Polk County's only privately owned orthodontic practices we are uniquely positioned to answer only to our patients, our team, and our conscience. We do not have shareholders and quotas, we do not answer to a corporation or ask their permission. Our position as a private practice allows us to bring true innovation in a timely fashion and to implement technology that we believe will benefit our patients in their experience and treatment results. We are able to do the right thing for each patient at the right time for them.
