Because of a lifelong dream of working with children, he left the Air Force and went back to school at the University of Connecticut to get his certificate in pediatric dentistry.
He was chief resident while attending his residency. During his residency, he did two additional fellowships. He received a certificate in treating children with craniofacial disorders from the University of Connecticut and a certificate from Yale University for treating medically compromised children in a hospital.
Dr. Scott re-entered the military in the rank of major and was stationed at Misawa Air Base, Japan and Travis Air Force Base, California.
While in California, he was promoted to the rank of Lt Colonel.
He was chief of pediatric dentistry at both and was a member of the teaching staff at Travis Air Force Base.
He worked in a private practice as an associate for a while before opening his own pediatric dental practice, Pediatric Dentistry of Long Island in Medford.
He treats infants, children, teenagers, and children with developmental disabilities. He is on staff at St. Charles Hospital where he helps train new dentists.
He has hospital privileges where he takes uncooperative or medically compromised children to the operating room to do all of their dental treatment at one time.
His favorite activities include technology, reading, and taking care of his two Chihuahua rescue dogs, Iputu and Carolina.
