Dr. Scott Clinton has been a practicing general dentist for over 35 years. After graduating from Northwestern Dental School, he completed a residency program in advanced dentistry and was on the attending staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital Dental Center for eight years, providing comprehensive care in a hospital based setting. He was a presenting faculty member for prosthetic and surgical training courses on Branemark Implants at the dental center.

He maintains his faculty position at Northwestern and is currently a member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, and Academy of Osseointegration. Dr. Clinton is the definition of a life-long learner and over the years has invested in the most up-to-date dental technology in order to ensure our patients receive optimum dental care. He not only prides himself in providing quality, comprehensive care, but also in treating each patient with the same kindness he would want his own family member to be treated.
