“What few people truly appreciate is that the desire for
a beautiful smile is not a superficial pursuit of vanity,” says
Scott Finlay, D.D.S. “Aesthetics is only a reflection of health.

and quality-of-life.”

For more than 23 years, Dr. Finlay has been creating
and enhancing smiles as a leader in the field of cosmetic
. After earning his dental degree in 1986 from
the University of Maryland/Baltimore College of Dental
Surgery, Dr. Finlay completed an additional year of
intensive postgraduate education at a Washington, D.C.-
area trauma hospital. Since then, he has completed training
programs through the Dawson Academy in St. Petersburg,
Florida, the NYU Dental School in Manhattan, the UCLA
Dental School in Beverly Hills and the Las Vegas Institute
for Advanced Dental Studies.

Dr. Finlay is one of only 300 dentists in the world
Accredited by the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry
(ABCD), which serves as the gold standard for excellence
in cosmetic dentistry. He is the only Accredited dentist
in the greater Annapolis area. Dr. Finlay currently serves
as an Examiner for the ABCD, acting as a judge and
mentor for cosmetic dentists nationwide. In addition,
he is a senior faculty member for the Dawson Academy,
an internationally renowned post-graduate education
academy for dentists. He is also a recognized Fellow in the
Academy of General Dentistry. Juries of Dr. Finlay’s peers
have repeatedly selected him as the “Top Cosmetic Dentist”
in the Annapolis area. He has been featured on several
television programs as an expert in dental aesthetics,
including Baltimore’s FOX 45 Morning News and the
shows A Better Life and A Bride 2 Be. (Video segments can

When Dr. Finlay began practicing dentistry, his goal
was to change lives. “My vision was to create a practice
that would offer the latest and most advanced procedures,
a staff of highly skilled professionals, and work with the
highest integrity to ensure that a patient’s best interests
always come first,” he explains.

“Patients often share with me the positive change they’ve
experienced from having a brighter, more attractive smile,”
notes Dr. Finlay. “That thrill feeds my passion for cosmetic
