Shanna Howze DDS

She earned her undergraduate degree from Texas State University before attending the UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry, where she honed her skills and expertise.

Dentistry runs in the family for Dr. Howze, as both her husband and father-in-law are also dentists. Together, they share a love for the profession and a commitment to staying updated on the latest advancements through continuing education courses. 

Outside of the office, Dr. Howze enjoys an active lifestyle, whether she's hitting the trails for a run, participating in Orange Theory workouts, diving into a good book, or exploring new destinations through travel. She and her husband are proud pet parents to two beloved cats, Winston and Olivia.

Dr. Howze is actively involved in professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the Texas Dental Association, where she contributes to the advancement of dental practices and standards.

Jennifer L Scott, DDS

Dr. Jennifer Scott provides our patients with a distinctive blend of skill and experience, combined with an emphasis on making every patient feel like part of the family. Speaking of family, Dr. Scott is a second generation dentist, having taken over the family dentistry practice from her father, Dr. Lawrence Lee, who practiced for many years in Oak Cliff. Many of Dr. Scott's patients were first patients of her dad and remember her as a child helping him in his office. Growing up around a dentist allowed Dr. Scott to observe dentistry techniques and skills as well as learn the value of patient care and communication. Dr. Scott began her formal dental education at the Baylor College of Dentistry, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene before receiving her DDS in 1989.

She regularly attends continuing education classes on a variety of subjects to ensure that she remains current on the latest technology and methods in the field of dentistry. Dr. Scott married her husband Dave in 1984 and they have four children, Rebecca (and husband Anthony), Sam, Grace and Claire. When she's not at the dental office, Dr. Scott is active in their church and she loves to read (she's a member of three book clubs) scrapbook and travel, especially to a beach. She attended Bishop Dunne High School and loves the Falcons and is devoted fan of the Baylor sports teams. Sic 'Em, Bears!

The dental team assisting Dr. Scott in providing our patients with superior dental care is composed of hard-working, responsible and trustworthy women who have extensive experience in our office. Our team also completes yearly continuing education classes.

Every member of our team values every patient that we talk with on the phone or who walks through our door – we believe that you deserve to be treated like a member of our family. That means that you should be treated with the utmost respect and consideration from us.
