Scott Terry, D.D.S.

“Periodontics is a specialty that combines all aspects of dentistry that I enjoy. I like to challenge of being a surgeon and I enjoy establishing long-term relationships with my patients. Periodontics allows me to combine both of these aspects in my practice.”

As a periodontal specialist, Dr. Scott Terry has received advanced training in all of the aspects of periodontal treatment, the placement of dental implants, and most recently laser therapy in the treatment of periodontal disease. A native of Hannibal MO, he graduated from Northwestern University dental school in 1988 and received his specialty training and periodontics from the University of Iowa in 1990. Dr. Terry received a fellowship for surgical placement of implants at the Misch Implant Institute in Detroit. He has practiced for over 25 years and has resided in South Dakota for the past decade.

With his passion for laser technology and education, Dr. Terry is also developing advanced laser periodontal surgical protocols and is performing research on periodontal laser applications. He teaches laser periodontal surgery for the Fotona Laser Corp.

During his spare time, Dr. Terry enjoys spending time in the gym, writing music for piano, exploring different food and music venues, and traveling as often as his schedule allows.
