Meet the Dentist

Scott P. Gunnell, DDS
Dr. Scott Gunnell has been improving the oral health and smiles of families in Casa Grande, Mesa, and the surrounding communities in Arizona since 2000. His undergraduate studies in biology and chemistry were completed at Northern Arizona University and he received his dental degree from the University of Pacific.  Dr. Gunnell consistently continues his dental education through lectures, courses, and seminars in order to provide his patients with the best possible care. Always one to stay up-to-date on the latest in dentistry, Dr. Gunnell has even completed the advanced Synergy Dental Implant course to better help those who are missing teeth. His goal as a dentist has always been to provide honest, quality dental care to those in Casa Grande and the surrounding areas.

When he is not working on your smile, Dr. Gunnell can often be found with his family. He and his wife Carrie have four young children. Dr. Gunnell’s spare time is often spent on home improvement projects, gardening, and raising chickens.
