Dr. Scott Watterson has over 15 years of experience in orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional brackets, he has chosen to work with Damon Brackets, a revolutionary bracket system that moves teeth with less friction, therefore less pain, faster and better than traditional methods. Patients who have chosen Damon Brackets rave about the comfort they experience as well as the reduced need for office visits and overall quicker treatment! For patients who would choose a more discreet approach, Dr. Watterson offers Invisalign®, the clear alternative option to brackets and wires. Invisalign® is growing in popularity amongst adults and teens alike for it’s subtle yet effective approach to producing brilliantly straight smiles.


Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth

Healthier Gums

Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss than crowded and crooked teeth. Properly positioned teeth can help gums “fit” more tightly around them, which may lead to better tooth and gum health.

Decreased Risk of Wear and Trauma

You only get one set of permanent adult teeth and you want them to last a lifetime. Properly aligned teeth reduce your risk of expensive procedures required to repair the effects of abnormal force, such as tooth chipping, breaking or wear. Properly aligned teeth also can be less stressful on the supporting jaw bone and joints.

Improved Hygiene

Properly aligned teeth aid in more thorough cleaning, less plaque build-up, decreased tooth decay, and healthier gums. A healthy mouth can help ensure you get to keep your teeth for life!

Boosted Confidence

Not enough can be said for what a straight, stunning smile can do for confidence and assurance. Research has found that smiling can make you look younger and thinner. Smiling actually changes your brain chemistry, making you happy! Additionally, people who smile are perceived to be more courteous, likeable and competent. If you are hiding your smile because you do not like your crooked teeth, pursuing Invisalign® or Damon Brackets could change your life!

Education and Experience

The Watterson Way

Dr. Scott Watterson

Many people would define cosmetic dentistry by what they’ve seen on “extreme makeover” type shows. However, subtle changes can be just as effective at improving a smile, as well as someone’s confidence about smiling.

Many have the misconception that all cosmetic services are incredibly expensive or long, drawn out procedures, which discourages them from moving forward with what they truly want.

Dr. Watterson uses the most conservative treatment possible, while pursuing your maximum health and function. Our cosmetic care is specifically tailored to your needs, concerns, and how you want your smile to shine in the end.


Serving as a general dentist for 25 years, I have developed and curated a passion for cosmetic dentistry in all its facets. I believe that form follows function and that is the basis of my practice. When your teeth are able to function the way you need them to, beautiful form naturally follows.

My desire is for the work of my hands to reach beyond the individual to impact everyone who is graced with their smile.

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!
