Meet the Doctor
Dr. Scott Clayhold considers himself blessed to have been raised in a unique and diverse background. Born 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 earned an honors commendation in tandem with both his medical and dental degrees. Shortly after graduation, Scott returned to the United States, married a Kirkland girl, and moved to Chicago.
While in Chicago he completed a two-year anesthesia internship and survived four years of the residency program, to which he had been selected, in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Illinois at 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, the family made the decision to move West and start a new practice in the place they love most, the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Trained in the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at one of the country’s finest programs, his key interest is dentoalveolar surgery with a particular passion for implants and all that goes with it.
Dr. Clayhold attributes his survival of the rigorous education process 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, he and the family enjoy a variety of activities including skiing, water sports, travel, reading and spending time in the outdoors fishing and hiking. As the years with our children progressed, Scott developed a passion for the sidelines for soccer, volleyball, lacrosse, swimming meets and tennis. He even dabbled in coaching indoor soccer. Walking alongside his son becoming an Eagle Scout, just like dad, was a real highlight.
About Our Practice
Dr. Scott Clayhold opened his practice in 2004 in a new, high-tech facility designed with the help of some of the area’s top architects. Our goal was to create an office space that best supports our patients and staff equally in a safe, warm, and flowing setting.
Our office is set up with comfort in mind. Family and friends waiting for their loved ones can imagine they are in their favorite café or coffee shop complete with an easy-to-use espresso machine offering complimentary lattes, cappuccinos, and americanos. When the weather gets chilly, the ambiance of a fire in our fireplace will allow you to feel that you are lingering, not waiting.
Our address is 22605 SE 56th Street, Suite 110 in Issaquah, WA. We are close to Lake Sammamish, Lake Sammamish State Park, and the Issaquah Costco.
