Vision

“My attitude toward dental care has evolved over my 25 years of practice. It’s why I am now convinced that, at it’s core, all dental care is cosmetic dentistry. I’ve seen cosmetic dentistry make a profound difference in the lives of my patients, including both my mom and dad. 
IT IS COSMETIC DENTISTRY THAT INSPIRED ME TO RISE ABOVE COMMONPLACE DENTAL CARE AND FIND WAYS THAT I CAN CHANGE THE LIVES OF EVERY PATIENT WHO CHOOSES MY PRACTICE.”

History

Dr. Watterson grew up in Jackson, Michigan watching his dad practice dentistry. This example had an enormous impact on his decision to pursue dentistry. He watched his father serve patients and improve their lives. Dr. Watterson graduated from Western High School in Parma, just outside Jackson. He then completed his undergraduate studies at Taylor University in Indiana, and Spring Arbor University in Michigan. Dr. Watterson received his Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 1998.
He was one of only two in his dental school graduating class to go to go directly into private practice following graduation from dental school. Dr. Watterson established his practice in Jackson, Michigan, out of a desire to give back to the hometown that had given so much to him. He considers it a blessing to work with a caring, dedicated team, as he follows in his father’s footsteps.

Following graduation, Dr. Watterson has continued to pursue advanced continuing education from the best dentists and academies across the country.

Dr. Watterson’s wife, Taryn, is also a Jackson native. Together, they have four incredible children. Dr. Watterson enjoys participating in their activities by coaching soccer and cheering for his dancing daughter. He also enjoys volunteering at his church, within the community, and was recently nominated and chosen as one of Jackson’s Health Care Angels.

Advancing Dentistry

Dr. Watterson makes advanced dentistry possible through his pursuit of continuing education as well as cutting edge technology in the office. The areas of dentistry in which Dr. Watterson has received advanced training include:
It may be difficult to imagine a world without dental technology once you experience the comfort, convenience and accuracy that it allows. In the office, technology is a key component to creating an atmosphere of quality, comprehensive and preventive dental care.
IT'S A TRUST THING

I can’t say enough great things about Watterson Dentistry. All of the staff treated me very well. They are so personal and make you feel at home. If you’re looking for a new dentist get on over there.

Great staff! They make you feel like part of the family. If you dread the dentist due to concern of discomfort, you don’t have to worry if you are seen here. I have had the deep cleaning below the gum line, routine cleanings, and I am now receiving orthodontic treatment. I am very happy that I chose Dr. Watterson and staff.

Where does a dentist go when he needs work done in his own mouth? I go to my U of M Dental School classmate, Dr. Scott Watterson. Why? I can trust him (and you can too) to do what is proper and do it well. It doesn’t hurt either that he has a top-notch support team!
