As an orthodontist, my profession enables me to cultivate relationships while transforming unhappy smiles into glorious smiles and make a lasting and positive change for every patient.
I enjoy working with children and adult patients. Most gratifying is seeing kids develop and grow into teens who are confident, responsible, and happy with themselves. I’m given the rare opportunity to influence and encourage them to do their best in all things. I equally treasure creating beautiful smiles for my adult patients, many of whom have waited years for their perfect smile.
I deeply appreciate the uniqueness of this area where I believe the highest concentration of the smartest people on the entire planet resides. It is a joy discussing orthodontic treatment with intelligent individuals interested in the intricacies and engineering of orthodontics. It is a privilege to serve the NASA family and affiliates
Prior to becoming a practicing orthodontist, I completed the following degrees:

- Doctorate of Dental Surgery with honors – University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, 2001
- Master of Science in dentistry and orthodontic residency – Saint Louis University, St. Louis, 2004

Continuing education is essential to provide the best possible treatment outcome using the most advanced techniques. My continuing education empowers me to offer the latest treatment options, provide patients with the best customized care, and deliver treatment with comfort and ease.
I complete several courses each year through various organizations listed below and attend private study club meetings.
- American Association of Orthodontists

In 2010, after intensive study, case presentations, and an oral examination, I was honored to receive my board certification from the American Board of Orthodontics.
In the Practice
After orthodontic residency, I joined Dr. Larry Radney in this practice in January 2005. For 12 years we were known as Radney Scott Orthodontics and worked up cases and treated patients jointly. His guidance, patience, and grace abounded. His treatment philosophies, techniques, and innovative spirit still fill this office. He truly taught me excellence in orthodontics through encouragement and example. I am profoundly grateful for the knowledge and wisdom he imparted. Thank you Dr. Radney!
Family and Community
I grew up in Conroe and now reside in Friendswood. My wonderful husband, Craig Scott, and I married during my first year of dental school. We moved to St. Louis for my residency and returned to Texas as fast as possible. We settled in the Clear Lake area and had our beautiful daughter, Sarah, 2 years later. Our son, Declan, was born 10 years after our daughter and keeps us young! We have two ultra-friendly Tonkinese cats who act like they’re dogs! When I’m not at the practice, I love riding my bike, swimming, cooking, and trying to keep up with the kids. I also enjoy making beaded and wire jewelry.
As a way of giving back to our wonderful community, I give talks at local elementary schools and also provide booster support to our patients’ extra-curricular activities and sponsor many school sports and dance teams.
