H. Kendall Scholes, DMD, MS
I come from a family of dentists, including my grandfather, father, and uncles. After graduating from the Dental School at Oregon Health Sciences University in 1992, I went on to complete my residency in Periodontics at Northwestern University. While in Chicago, I also received a Masters of Science Degree in Immunology. My wife and I opened our private practice in Chandler, Arizona in 1999. It is hard to believe I have been practicing Periodontics for well over a quarter of a century.
A commitment to continuing education has led me to participate in hundreds of courses covering a myriad of topics. In addition, I am an active member of the American Dental Association, the Arizona Dental Association, and the American Academy of Periodontology. In 2014, I completed an Advanced Surgical Residency Program at the Malo Institute in Lisbon, Portugal with Dr. Paulo Malo. He is one of the pioneers of the Nobel All-On-4 (Same Day Smile/Teeth in a Day) system. Since then, I have helped many of our patients transform their smiles with our Same Day Smile process. Currently, I serve as a Spear Study Club Co-Leader. Collaborating with my fellow dental practitioners is one of the best parts of being a specialist.
When I am not working with patients and my outstanding team, I can be found exploring the Arizona White Mountains on my ATV, hanging out with my family, or traveling with my wife. I also enjoy volunteering with several locations and national non-profit organizations.
Helping patients to improve their overall oral health and to keep their teeth brings me immense joy and fulfillment. Behind every patient is a valued individual who deserves my compassion and my best effort. I am fortunate to work with a highly skilled, dedicated and committed team who is devoted to the same ideals as me.
