At what age did you decide you wanted to be a dentist?
I have wanted to be a dentist for as long as I can remember. I have worked with my Dad and brothers since I was 12 years old. I grew to love dentistry…and working with my family.
What do you like to do when you are not working?
I like spending time with my family. I love being outdoors and enjoy going to the beach with Rachael and my boys. I also love going to the skate park with my boys. They both began skateboarding when they were three years old and they are a lot of fun to watch.
What is one word that you hope your patients would use to describe you?
Gentle. I love seeing people leave my office happy. I do everything I can to ensure that each patient is as relaxed and comfortable as possible and that they leave having had a pleasant experience.
What keeps you motivated?
I am a visual person so it is not uncommon to find funny pictures saved as the wallpaper on my cell phone or inspirational quotes written on sticky notes around my desk.
What is your favorite dessert food?
Anything that has ice cream in, on or next to it. Ice cream makes everything better!
What has been your favorite concert or performance that you have attended?
Ever since I was young I wanted to see Garth Brooks in concert. Two years ago I saw him play a private show in the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. It was hands-down the best performance I have ever seen.
What nicknames have you been given by your friends and family?
Cotts, Scotty, Scotty-Potty or just Potty.
Where did you meet your wife, Rachael?
Rachael and I have known each other since I was 11 years old. We were neighbors and family friends before we started dating in high school.
What sports do you enjoy watching or playing?
I love going to ASU football and Phoenix Suns games. It always brings back good childhood memories. I like to play most sports but I really enjoy cycling and snowboarding.
