Let Us Introduce Ourselves

The dental practice team at Dr. Scott Clayhold is proud to provide you with expert consultation and treatment.


Dr. Scott Clayhold DDS


Dr. Scott Clayhold feels blessed to have been raised in a unique and diverse background. Although a New Zealander, Scott was raised in the Bellevue/Eastgate area. He currently holds both US and New Zealand citizenship. During Scott's last year at Sammamish High School, his family moved back to New Zealand, where he completed an honors degree and both his medical and dental training. Thereafter, Scott returned to the United States, married a Kirkland girl, and moved to Chicago.


While in Chicago he completed an anesthesia internship as well as survived his internship and residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Illinois Chicago/University of Chicago. Following his training in Chicago, Scott accepted a position in Spokane, where he worked for two years. Missing family as well as the west side of the mountains, Scott's family made the decision to move West and start a new practice... back in the place they love most.


Although trained in the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at one of the country's finest programs, Scott's interest is dentoalveolar surgery with a particular passion for implants and all its partnered bone graft, distraction osteogenesis and periodontal plastic procedures.


Scott attributes his survival in school and residency to his very patient and loving wife, Anna Marie. Their children, Cody, Kallysta, Cassie, and Kayda are their pride and joy. During his spare time, Scott likes a variety of activities including skiing, scuba diving, water sports, travel, and spending time in the outdoors fishing and hiking.


Nicole - Office and Financial Coordinator


Nicole joined our team in October of 2014. She is your main contact for walking you through all the front desk interactions.  We've noticed that she always has a smile on her face.


Katie - Scheduling Coordinator


Katie is usually the first person you'll speak with when visiting or calling our practice.  She finally joined our practice early in 2015 after years of our asking because we know she is so fabulous at customer service. This has worked so well in her role with our practice which is primarily to welcome and comfort each person who walks in our doors.
