Scott Welling, DDS
Meet Dr. Welling, Poulsbo Dentist
Dr. Scott Welling is from a family of seven children and grew up in Columbus, OH. His love of math and numbers led him to pursue an undergraduate degree in economics from Brigham Young University. Following his undergraduate studies, Dr. Welling went back home and earned his dental degree from The Ohio State University. He relocated to Washington with his wife Harriet and their two young children. They hand-picked Washington state for its temperate climate and breath-taking natural beauty.
Ironically, Dr. Welling grew up never wanting to be a dentist because of a bad experience while shadowing at an office in the 7th grade. However, he had a second exposure to dentistry, this time with an engaging dentist who loved teaching and interacting with his patients.
This passion for patient education and developing meaningful relationships with the individuals in the practice made Dr. Welling give dentistry a second chance and he has not looked back since.
Dr. Welling is a member of various local and national organizations, including:
- American Dental Association
- Washington State Dental Association
- Kitsap County Dental Association
- LDS Academy of Dentists
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry
- Academy for Sports Dentistry
