Growing up in Southern California, Dr. Scott Brookshire graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1993. Soon after, Scott bought his first practice in Craig, Alaska which is a tight-knit community of ~1,200 citizens located on a large island off the coast of southern Alaska called Prince of Wales. Scott moved to Alaska not knowing anyone and started running his newly bought practice in pursuit of his passion for providing dental care. Although Dr. Brookshire had enough education to practice dentistry without hurting anyone, he did not have the necessary knowledge of running a business. This part was especially hard due to the circumstance that Dr. Brookshire was in being the only dentist on the island. The power of the internet played a huge role in Dr. Brookshire’s development as a business owner and is how he learned about Keating Dental Arts 15 years ago. Dr. Brookshire did most of the business operations on top of practicing dentistry and believed he could do it all, however, he realized this model was impossible.
