Meet Our Doctors

Meredith Scott, DDS, MSD

As a dentist, I get to know many truly unique people, as our area is rich with highly skilled and intelligent individuals. My profession also enables me to cultivate and transform unhappy smiles into glorious smiles and hopefully have a positive influence on their future. Watching the kids develop and grow into teens gives me the opportunity to speak encouragement into their lives, help to instill confidence and responsibility, and create healthy smiles and healthy occlusion to last a lifetime.

Education

Prior to becoming an orthodontist, I attained the following education:

BS degree in Biomedical Science, Texas A&M University at College Station - 1996
DDS, University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston, graduating with honors - 2001
Orthodontic Residency and Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD), Saint Louis University, St. Louis, MO - 2004
Continuing Education

Continuing Education is an essential part of being able to provide the best possible treatment outcomes using the most up-to-date techniques. I attend several courses each year presented by either the American Association of Orthodontists, Southwest Society of Orthodontists, graduate departments of Orthodontics at Saint Louis University and the University of Texas. In addition I attend quarterly orthodontic study club meetings with The Water’s Edge Orthodontic Study Club and attend monthly meetings with The Ninth District Dental Society where the latest advancements in dentistry are often presented.

In 2010, after intensive study, case presentations and oral examination, I was honored to receive my Board Certification from the American Board of Orthodontics.

The continuing education that I receive allows me to provide our patients with the latest treatment modalities and advancements in orthodontics. In my continued pursuit of excellence, I seek to provide patients with all appropriate treatment options for their case and the expertise to execute these treatments with comfort and ease.

In the Practice

I love what I do because creating beautiful smiles is tremendously gratifying and interacting with kids of all ages is a thrill. I also get to meet and know some of the most interesting adult patients.

I appreciate the joy my patients bring to the office, watching their smiles and personalities bloom like a flower, and the maturing process and sense of accomplishment they feel after the long process and hard work they contribute.

I joined Larry Radney's practice immediately after graduating orthodontic residency. Dr. Radney continues to pour as much of his knowledge and experience into me as he possibly can. My first 3 years, we planned every patient's case independently of each other, then discussed the case prior to presenting it to the patient or parent. He has a strong tradition of striving for excellence and I plan on continuing that tradition for years to come. He is truly a fabulous mentor and a wonderful man. I am very blessed to continue having him as part of the practice and part of my life.

Family and Community

I grew up in Conroe, and love living in Seabrook. My wonderful husband is Craig Scott, who I married during my first year of dental school. We have a beautiful daughter named Sarah. We also have two ultra–friendly Tonkinese cats at home that act like they are dogs! When I'm not in the practice, I love riding my bike with Sarah in the attached trailer. I also enjoy making beaded and wire jewelry with Sarah. As a way of giving back to this wonderful community, I often give talks to local elementary schools, and give Booster support to patients' extra–curricular activities, resulting in sponsorship to many school sports and dance teams.

Meet Dr. Radney

My profession allows me to make a positive difference in someone else's life each day. For our patients, these differences added up over time can make a beautiful smile bloom. This is what makes me so committed to my profession and to being the best that I can be.

Education

Prior to becoming an orthodontist, I received the following educational certificates:

BA Degree in biology — University of Texas at Austin (1970)
Doctorate in dentistry — Baylor College of Dentistry (1974)
General Practice Residency — San Diego Naval Regional Medical Center (1975)
Post-doctorate master's degree and certificate in orthodontics, Baylor College of Dentistry (1980)
Continuing Education

Continuing education helps me to reach the goal of a beautiful and healthy smile in a shorter period of time and with less discomfort for the patient. Orthodontics is improving each day, to provide better and faster treatment for the patient. Staying up to date with current scientific research and clinical studies allows me to provide the best possible diagnosis and solutions for the orthodontic challenges I see each day.

For the past 30 years, I have been very involved with continuing education through courses given by the American Association of Orthodontists, Southwest Society of Orthodontists, graduate departments of Orthodontics at the University of Texas and Baylor and extensive clinical study with the Bayou City Orthodontic Study Club along with the Texas Orthodontic Study Club.

In 1989, after intensive study and examination, I was honored to receive Board Certification from the American Board of Orthodontics. I have recently completed a Voluntary Recertification process to further my education and improve my skills as an orthodontist. Continuing education is a huge part of my obligation to be the best that I can be for my patients!

Professional Experience

For the past 30 years, I have loved practicing orthodontics because it allows me to get to know our patients as people, and not just as a set of teeth. Making our patients feel that they are special and important in this world is a wonderful experience. Over the years of treating thousands of patients, it has been especially rewarding to treat the children of former patients.

I especially enjoy using the years of clinical experience that I have to create detailed individualized treatment plans for each and every patient and carrying those plans out with precision. This allows us to provide the best possible smile for that individual patient.

I truly enjoy getting to see the transformation in our patients' self–confidence and personality after going through orthodontic therapy. A corrected bite and a beautiful new smile can make such a positive impact on our patients' lives and their sense of self worth! They seem to become radiant with confidence and joy!
