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 the 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’s hard to believe I have been practicing Periodontics for 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 technique residency program at the Malo Institute in Lisbon, Portugal. 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, 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 local 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 an outstanding team who is dedicated to the same ideals as me.
