Dr. Desirea Scott received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Dr. Scott earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery and advanced degree in Orthodontics from Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, DC.
She believes treatment should be customized to fit each patient. During the initial consultation she ensures the treatment plan prioritizes the patient’s objectives, but also includes her own objectives which is obtaining esthetics, health, function and stability of the teeth. In addition, Dr. Scott is an advocate for early detection of misaligned teeth and jaws, therefore she encourages parents to bring in their children as early as the age of 7 for an orthodontic consultation.
Dr. Scott uses traditional braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign, Inbrace, custom appliances and dentofacial orthopedics to aid in achieving the best smile for each patient.
Dr. Scott moved here from practicing orthodontics in Ohio to be closer to family and to live in beautiful Colorado. Her interests are reading, exercising and playing with her puppy, Theo! Dr. Hardy will continue to be with Taft Hill for the long term, but will be transitioning patient care to Dr. Scott over the coming months. He has the utmost confidence with her patient care and her passion for Orthodontics.
