Scott N. Santos, DDS

A Navy brat for the first 12 years of his life, Dr. Santos moved with his family to beautiful Seaside, OR after his father retired from the Navy. He became a Seaside High Alum in 1995 and went on to complete his undergraduate studies at Oregon State University before obtaining his dental doctorate from Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI in 2002. After working in Great Falls, MT, and Lake Oswego, OR he returned to Seaside in 2003 to open a dental practice and has been serving the North Oregon Coast ever since. Having been involved with multiple study clubs and endless continuing education courses, Dr. Santos continues his pursuit of dental excellence and is motivated to stay on top of the latest trends in dental innovations.

Despite all the classes and technology available in dentistry, Dr. Santos understands that true success comes from a patient that becomes educated and motivated about his or her unique dental conditions.  He views and treats each patient like a family member and understands the importance of a positive patient experience.  

Because of his passion for people, Dr. Santos has spent time donating his time and services with Medical Teams International and Mission of Mercy, performing various dental treatments to those in need.  You can even find him in the local schools talking to children about the importance of a healthy mouth. 


In his spare time, you may find him working on his golf game, hiking to nowhere, watching movies about space and time travel, playing epic board games, helping coach his children’s sports teams, or reading apocalyptic adventures, fantasy worlds, or stories about overcoming  insurmountable odds.

Dr. Santos' love for people is shared with his high school sweetheart, Kim, whom he has been married to since 1999. Together they have two very spirited children, Tobin (2008) and Lana (2011).
