|Academy recognizes King Scott|
West Monroe dentist Dr. L. King Scott was recently honored with a lifetime achievement award by Academy of General Dentistry.
He was the only dentist in Louisiana to receive the honor. He also was the second dentist in the south central states of Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas to receive the award. So far, only 93 dentists in the United States have received it.
"It was a real honor to be recognized by your peers, especially because the Academy of General Dentistry represents 40,000 of the 135,000 dentists out there," Scott said. "For a general dentist to receive the award, it's one of the nicest honors you can receive in your career."
"I think it speaks highly of dentistry to recognize someone who is committed to the profession," Scott continued. "It takes a long time for a dentist to obtain the credentials just to be nominated for this award, so it's a terrific honor."
The award was presented to Scott by Academy of General Dentistry at its 2009 annual conference in Baltimore, Md.
Scott received the award along with 23 other dentists this year.
"I've already gotten lots of nice comments from patients and non-patients alike," he said. "I look forward to some other folks in the state receiving the award in the near future."
I'll be very happy for them," Scott added.
The "Lifelong Learning & Service Recognition Award" was created to recognize achievements of dentists "who recognize the professional obligation to remain current in their profession and who provide outstanding service to their community and their professional colleagues."
In order to be eligible, a member of the Academy of General Dentistry must have earned their AGD Masters designation and "exhibit a commitment to lifelong learning, be a mentor to associates and new dentists, improve the quality of continuing education, and be a voice for the general dentist."
Scott also has served the community as a deputy coroner since 2003. He was chairman of the Louisiana Dental Association's Task Force to raise funds to assist dentists displaced by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
He is an active member and former officer of the Kiwanis, which selected him Member of the Year in 2001.
Scott continues to practice at his office in West Monroe where he focuses on reconstructive dentistry, aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry.
He is a graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. He received his undergraduate degree from then-Northeast Louisiana University, now the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
