Scott Family Dentistry
Jessie Scott, DDS
  • Thank you so much for taking such good care of my dad. He was very pleased with his visit and said how comfortable you and your staff made him. I had no doubt it would be that way, but wanted you to know. Thanks!

    - Sue
  • I want you to know how much I appreciate your healing skills and expertise! Without your training and dedication many of us would continue in pain. Know that you are so appreciated for using your God given gifts! Thank you so much.

    - Diane
  • I want to thank all of you who have worked with me and my dental anxiety. As you could tell I have never had a patient or understanding dentist/staff to work with me. I really appreciate all you have done.

    - Anne
  • I recently had a lot of work done on my teeth and just want to say thank you for all the wonderful care I received. I felt no pain and was very comfortable the entire time. I really enjoyed the kind and patient attitudes of everyone as well as the atmosphere. I so appreciate you fixing my messed up mouth, doing such a great job and making me feel so comfortable!

    - Molly
  • I can't thank you enough. You have given me more than a smile. Your staff are the most professional that I have ever dealt with. You have a lot to be proud of. Thank you so much!

The right technology can make our patients' dental experience the best available. By implementing safe, practical methods of diagnosing and treating dental conditions, we increase the quality of care you receive. Here are some of the ways technology has increased the level of patient care we deliver in our Yankton, SD dental office.

STA Computer-Aided Anesthetic Delivery

Our shots do not look like traditional injections. More importantly – they don't feel like them!

STA (single tooth anesthesia) is a computer-aided anesthetic delivery system that provides our patients with painless injections – something they truly appreciate! By delivering anesthetic in this way, we not only reduce discomfort, but we also deliver precise levels of anesthetic to help your treatment experience be the very best possible.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Our high-resolution digital dental x-rays have reduced radiation by 80 percent or more and deliver accurate diagnostic images. Because their risk is very low and they help us to detect dental conditions such as infection and decay in its earliest stages, x-rays are one of the best investments you can make in your health.

Since these images appear instantly on our computer monitors, they give Dr. Scott the opportunity to show you what she sees so that you fully understand your oral conditions. 

Digital imaging is also much better for the environment because it eliminates the needs for film and chemicals required in developing radiographs.

Laser Dentistry

Diode lasers allow dentists to perform a wide variety of gum treatments without the need for traditional surgery. Periodontal disease and minor gingival surgeries such as frenectomies, contouring, and treatment of cold sores and  canker sores can be performed with improved treatment times and reduced pain.
