My husband and I have two children that needed services from Dr. Scott and so we were recommended by our family dentist. The office staff and Dr. Scott are very professional and courteous. We are very happy with the service. Dr Scott is very patient with my son who seems to have a problem wearing his retainer. I would very much recommend him to all my friends and for anyone who needs the service of an Orthodontist. The before and after pictures of my kids teeth are quite remarkable and we are extremely pleased with his services and the office staff mannerism. Thank you Doc.

A Highly Educated Orthodontist for Your Smile Needs

  • Dr. Scott, who resides in Washington, D.C., received his doctorate in dentistry from the esteemed Howard University College of Dentistry, where he also completed his residency in orthodontics.
  • At Howard University, Dr. Scott received numerous academic, leadership, and service awards, including the resident with the highest academic average, junior class vice president, and senior class president. 

Why Orthodontics Are So Important

Orthodontics can correct bite imperfections such as underbites, overbites, gaps between the teeth, overcrowded teeth, and more. In some cases, the upper and lower teeth do not come together properly. 

These issues can cause unnecessary wear on your teeth, make proper oral hygiene difficult, and cause chewing issues. Plus, misaligned teeth can compromise the look of your smile.

Dr. Scott can reduce or eliminate many of these concerns using the latest diagnostic and orthodontic treatments in the field of dentistry. As the father of two children, he knows the importance of correcting bite problems as early as possible.

I have 3 kids, all of whom are patients of Dr. Scott, and my husband is as well! 4 patients, and the experience has been professional for each and every on. All of the staff are cheerful and friendly and they seem to know all patients by name. That is impressive! They are flexible with scheduling and will make every attempt to fit you in if there is an emergency (broken bracket, wire, etc.) Dr. Scott has a great "chair-side" manner about him and is wonderful with the kids and the parents. Wouldn't go anywhere else!

I decided to get braces when I was in my 50's and I'm glad I did. During the consultation, Dr. Scott informed me that he would be able to save a tooth that another orthodontist told me would have to be removed. Since that time, I left my job of 26 years and became a full time actor. Whenever I'm on a shoot, the directors consistently ask me to show my teeth when I smile. Thanks to Dr. Scott and his team, I have been able to work on some exciting film and print projects. I am a living witness that you're never to old to get braces, develop good oral hygiene habits and start a new career. Thank you Dr. Scott.

Before Invisalign
After Invisalign
This patient had an overbite and misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment with clear plastic Invisalign aligners shifted the patient’s teeth into alignment, creating a healthier bite and a straighter smile. Dr. Scott can help you achieve the same kinds of results.
