About Dr. Scott Consulting
Scott F Peterson, D.D.S.
Dr. Peterson received his undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University in 1982 and completed dental school at the University of Texas Health Science Center located in the world famous Medical Center in Houston.
After graduating from dental school, he spent the next 11 years building a private practice from scratch. During those early years in his career, he had many mentors; the most influential during that period was Dr. Omer Reed of NAPILI / PENTEGRA. Dr. Reed taught him the importance of communications in a professional practice.
In 1989, Dr. Peterson was influenced by a master of influence and persuasion; Walter Hailey “Itsy Bitsy Hailey.”
Mr. Hailey introduced him to the power of masterminding and was instrumental in his starting two companies that launched two unrelated infomercials, all in a 2 year period while simultaneously building his dental practice. This would be where he really learned the power of direct response marketing.
In 1990, I picked up Tony Robbin’s book, “Unlimited Power” and couldn’t stop reading! I attended seminars, listened to and read everything I could with Tony Robbins, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dale Carnegie, Leo Buscaglia, Norman Vincent Peale, Napolean Hill, Stephen Covey…the list goes on.
In 1994, he hired Fortune Practice Management to be the management company for his dental practice. Tony was an important influence in shaping many of Dr. Peterson’s core beliefs about personal power and building relationships while deepening his understanding of the importance of leadership and excellence in communications.
Combining 4 years of self improvement study with Tony’s Fortune Practice Management concepts, Dr. Peterson was able to DOUBLE the production in his private practice and increase the net profit to 80% – in 12 months!
Dr. Peterson is still practicing a couple of days a week at Harris Parkway Dental Care in Southwest Fort Worth, Texas. His compassionate chair-side manner and exceptional expertise create a comforting and reassuring experience for his patients. He goes the extra mile to foster meaningful relationships, ensuring every patient receives personalized care and attention.
Beyond his dental practice, he’s a dedicated family man and entrepreneur. He works alongside his wife, Shauna, in her business endeavors, fostering a partnership that extends beyond their personal lives. In his leisure time, he indulges in various hobbies, including golf, business development and real estate investing.
Throughout his career, Dr. Peterson has touched the lives of countless individuals, creating lasting smiles and empowering his patients to embrace their best selves. His genuine care and expertise make him a trusted figure in the dental community, and his multifaceted interests enrich his interactions both inside and outside the practice of dentistr
