Honorary Partners

Dr. Robert T. Scott


Dr. Scott was born and raised in Maryland. He received his Bachelor of Science in biology from Western Maryland College (McDaniel University) and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maryland Dental School with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He completed a Master of Science in orthodontics from Georgetown University and has been in private practice since 1973. An instructor at the University of Maryland orthodontic program, Dr. Scott became a board-certified orthodontist recognized by the American Board of Orthodontists in 1987 and was re-certified in 2002.

Dr. Scott and his wife Carolyn have resided in Westminster for 37 years. They have four children and six grandchildren. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his family, working in his vineyard, and traveling.

In December 2013, after 40 years of being in practice, Dr. Scott decided to retire. He now enjoys spending extra time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Dr. Scott founded his practice on high standards of excellent treatment, a legacy that continues on today! He feels confident leaving the practice in the capable hands of some of the most knowledgeable and caring orthodontists in the country.

Dr. Kevin Lawyer

Dr. Kevin Lawyer was a devoted husband, father, and orthodontist. He was born and raised in Carroll County, and attended Virginia Tech and the University of Maryland Dental School. As a child he was a patient of Dr. Scott’s, worked summers with our practice while in school, and upon graduation became a partner. We were privileged to share in his life for ten years. Tragically, on February 21, 2008, Dr. Lawyer was taken from us as the result of an automobile accident.

His legacy will live on through the lives of his six beautiful children and all those he touched through his church, his friends, and our many patients. The smiles he created reflect the care and compassion he showed to all who were fortunate enough to have known him.
