Emily Cureton- Treatment Coordinator

Dr. Scott's wife, Emily Cureton, is our Treatment Coordinator. She is the face (and brains) of our office! When you schedule your free consultation, she will be the person you sit down with to discuss your treatment options. She will take the time to make sure you understand the process of braces and what all is involved with your or your child's treatment. She will also work with you to find payment options that fit your budget.

Emily grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. She went to college at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, FL with a scholarship for springboard diving. She earned a degree for Marketing and Advertising. While there, she met Dr. Scott, who was attending his orthodontic residency at Jacksonville University. They now have two beautiful baby girls, and love being able to raise them in such an amazing community.
