Teresa M. Scott, DDS, MIABDM
When it comes to preserving, enhancing and beautifying our smiles, we all want the best. The best care. The best service. The best results. It’s as simple as that
Teresa M. Scott, DDS is a unique kind of dentist. First and foremost, she LISTENS. She listens so she can best understand YOUR particular needs. She takes a gentle, warm and compassionate approach, easing any concerns you might have by providing valuable patient education reasoning that an educated consumer is likely to make better decisions about their dental care. Then she strives to provide the highest standard of personalized dental care using her skilled training and the latest advances in dental technology.
As an honors graduate of St. Pius X High School, and University of St. Thomas in Houston, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, she went on to extend her education, receiving her doctorate from University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School. She received both the Jurisprudence Award, and the Award for Excellence in Clinical Dentistry while still in dental school. She is a member in good standing of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, and was elected President of the IABDM in March 2020. She is also a member in good standing of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The Holistic Dental Association, the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health.
Dr. Scott became biological as a dentist in 2012, after getting very sick from mercury toxicity. She ultimately was diagnosed with Grade 4, stage 4B endometrial cancer in 2015 and was given a year to live and 1% chance of survival. She chose not to do chemotherapy and instead achieved remission with IV vitamin C. She is a true believer in nutrition and achieving gut health. She is one of the first airway centered dentists in the US, and focuses on helping her patients achieve full body health by maximizing and optimizing their oral health.
Being listed in our directory does NOT guarantee in any way that the practitioner follows all that our Standards of Practice advise. For no two dentists practice exactly the same way. This doesn’t mean that the care you receive from one will be better or worse than the care you receive from another, just different.
If you have special needs - for instance, a fragrance-free environment - we encourage you to ask questions before visiting any office.
