I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida.  Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to be a dentist and that I wanted to live in Atlanta.  While in college at Florida State, I worked as a dental assistant and confirmed that dentistry was definitely for me.  I attended dental school at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, earning my DDS degree in 1996.  Knowing that I wanted to work with kids as a Pediatric Dentist, I did a two-year residency at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC.

 

After finishing my residency in 1998, I could not wait to move to Atlanta to start practicing and working with children.  When I moved to Atlanta, I met my husband, Shawn, fell in love, got married and now have two adorable little girls, Katherine and Caroline.  I worked for 8 years at a practice in Alpharetta, Georgia.  When I had my daughters, I decided that I wanted to work closer to our home and be more of a part of our great Dunwoody community.  We opened our practice in Dunwoody Village in April 2007.

 

As a mother, I appreciate the extremely important decisions that parents must make in the care of their children's health, including the care of their teeth.  I promise to provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions possible for your family's dental well-being.  More importantly, I will provide your children with individualized care and dental healthcare choices to fit their specific needs - my highest priority is the comfort and health of our patients and their families.

 

Here are a few of my professional accomplishments and societies that I belong to.  I am board-certified by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.  I am also a member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, Georgia Society of Pediatric Dentistry and the Hinman Dental Society.  In 2007, I became the course director for the Pediatric Emergencies in the Dental Office Continuing Education course.

Scheduling Appointments

Please call our office at 770-396-4300 to request a visit.

 

Our office attempts to schedule appointments at times that are convenient for you.  Children 5 years old and younger should be seen in the morning because they are fresher, and we can work more slowly with the child for their comfort.  School children with a lot of work to be done should be seen in the morning for the same reason.  Dental appointments are an excused absence.  Missing school can be kept to a minimum when regular dental care is continued.

 

 

Finances

Fees incurred are due in full when services are rendered.  They are entirely the patient/parent/guarantor’s responsibility.  Payments can be made by the following options:

 

We accept cash, check, Mastercard or Visa at the time of service.

 

 

Dental Insurance

Your insurance company is required to pay each claim within 30 days of receipt.  We file all claims electronically so your insurance company will receive each claim within a day of the treatment.

 

Please understand that we file dental insurance as a courtesy to our patients.  We do not have a contract with your insurance company, only you do.  We are not responsible for how your insurance company handles its claims or for what benefits they pay on a claim.  We can only assist you in estimating your portion of the cost of treatment.  We at no time guarantee what your insurance will or will not do with each claim.

We Are Available

Monday 7:00 am – 5:00 pm

First Pediatric Dental Visit

  • When Should My Child First See A Pediatric Dentist?

    If your child goes to bed with a bottle, we would like to see your child by his/her 1st birthday.  If your child does not go to bed with a bottle, 2 is a good age to take a peek at your child’s teeth to get him or her acquainted with the dentist.

     

    We will have your child meet the dental team, see the office and become comfortable in the dental setting.  Between ages 3 to 3 1/2 is a great time to have your child’s first check-up; that visit will include a cleaning, fluoride treatment, dental exam and any pictures (x-rays) that might be needed.

     

    Our number one goal with your child’s first dental experiences is to create the most positive experience and develop a trusting relationship.

  • Tell Me About My Child’s First Visit

    We believe that a child's first visit to our dental office should be fun, educational and, most of all, make a positive impression.  This approach allows us to provide the highest level of dental health care for your child and spend as much time with you as needed to answer your questions.

     

    We teach you and your child how to best care for their teeth, advise on eating habits and answer any specific questions you may have.  We explain how cavities are caused, what we can do to prevent them and how your children can help fight gum and tooth disease by brushing properly.

     

    All information is provided in an age appropriate manner to help nurture and encourage your child.

  • What Can I Do To Make The First Visit A Success?

    By putting your child in the proper frame of mind, you can make the first visit enjoyable and positive.  Tell your child in advance that the dentist wants to meet them.  Present this visit as a positive experience for both you and your child.

     

    To gain your child's confidence and trust, we use child-friendly terms and simple explanations to describe dental instruments and procedures. Expect your child to react well and enjoy the visit and chances are he or she will do exactly that.

 We are happy to welcome you and your child

to your First Visit with us.

 

Our team makes sure you have the most positive experience for both you and your child.

 

Please take a moment and review a few important questions and answers to help you and your child have a nurturing, educational and fun visit!

What is a Pediatric Dentist?


A Pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Scott, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.

 

What is a Board Certified
Pediatric Dentist?


When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.

We are proud of what they

are saying about us!
