Family Dentist in North Vernon, IN

Scott A. Terry, DDS

North Vernon Family Dentist Dr. Scott Terry has spent most of his life as a Hoosier. He was raised in the small town Hagerstown, Indiana, and graduated from Hagerstown High School in 1984. He was active as an Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts, a musician in the band, and captained his football team who went to the Semi-State Championship.

After he graduated from high school, he attended nearby Hanover College and majored in biology. It was during college he discovered his love of the outdoors and had a job as a naturalist at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison.

He attended dental school at Indiana University until his graduation in 1992. After graduation, he worked in dental offices in North Vernon and Versailles, until he established his own practice in 2000 in North Vernon.

Dr. Terry enjoys being able to be part of the small, tight-knit community of North Vernon and is proud to share in the lives of the families there. He is an advocate for their good health and well being having served on the county Board of Health, United Way campaigns and being instrumental in getting fluoride back in the water for the Jennings County residents.

He and his staff continually strive for excellence in their patient care and continuing education. The office is also equipped with modern technology to allow Dr. Terry to give his patients the best care available in the gentlest manner. He is a member of numerous dental organizations and study groups.

Dr, Terry is married to his wife of over 20 years, and they have three children. When Dr. Terry isn’t in the office, he’ll most likely be found in his woods, near Hayden, hiking, fishing, boating, hunting, or hosting barbecues or camp-outs for his friends and family.
