Welcome to the office of Drs. Todd Scott, Kevan Whitsitt & Ryan Wymore
We develop relationships built on trust by practicing conservative dentistry, which means we’ll make sure you understand all of your options and respect any decisions you make. We are your partners in the movement toward optimal oral health and whole-body wellness.
The philosophy of our practice is simple: We want to provide our patients with the quality of dental care and level of personal attention we desire for our own families.
From preventive services designed to stop disease before it starts to restorative and cosmetic treatments, you’ll find an uncompromising attention to detail coupled with a gentle touch.
