Dr. Escott is an active member of the Schulman Study Group for Orthodontic Specialists. Membership to this exclusive group is by invitation only and limited to 125 practices in North America. In fact, many of the leading minds in orthodontics are members of the Schulman Study Group. Membership in this group is not only a tremendous privilege for Dr. Escott, but benefits our patients by giving Dr. Escott incredible resources to stay on the cutting edge of orthodontics. Additionally, Dr. Escott is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) and American Dental Association (ADA).
Dr. Escott grew up in Yakima, a mountainous, high-desert area on the east side of Washington State. He was fortunate to know as a young man that he wanted to pursue healthcare, and found his passion in dentistry. He began his journey close to home, graduating from Central Washington University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s of Art Degree studying biology and chemistry.
Dr. Escott moved to Florida to begin dental school at Nova Southeastern University in the summer of 2007. While in dental school he narrowed his focus on orthodontics and committed himself to becoming a specialist. As a senior dental student, he was awarded membership to the exclusive Omicron Kappa Upsilon society, a distinction reserved for a small number of students in dentistry. Dr. Escott completed his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree in 2011, graduating with honors and near the top of his class.
Dr. Escott then began his orthodontic residency, studying for three years at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Admission to this prestigious residency is an honor, as only four dentists per year are selected. This rigorous program trained Dr. Escott in both conventional and cutting-edge orthodontic treatment and appliances, allowing him to deliver orthodontic care at the highest level. Dr. Escott completed his residency in 2014, becoming a certified specialist in orthodontics and earning a Master’s of Science degree in dentistry.
Dr. Escott began practicing in 2012, with his first position as a general dentist in San Antonio, Texas. There, he spent time working at CentroMed, a non-profit community health center helping the underserved population in the San Antonio area. This was a half-time position, which Dr. Escott held while attending residency. Dr. Escott spent two years practicing general dentistry on nights and weekends while completing his full-time orthodontic residency training.
In 2014, Dr. Escott moved to Central Florida to practice at Lake Dora Orthodontics. This practice was previously known as Principe Orthodontics after Dr. Gilbert A. Principe who operated the practice for more than 40 years. Dr. Escott assumed the lead in this practice as Dr. Principe retired. Lake Dora Orthodontics has since thrived under the leadership of Dr. Escott by providing exceptional treatment with personal and attentive care.
In 2016, Dr. Escott merged his team with College Park Orthodontics. Adding a second location allowed the doctor to reach more people in our Central Florida community and make it even more convenient for patients to find a time and location for their visits. College Park Orthodontics was established in 2008 by Dr. Noelle Williams. Dr. Escott took the lead in this practice in order to allow Dr. Williams to transition out to be available for her family commitments.
Outside of the practice, Dr. Escott LOVES getting to the beach and jumping in the ocean. He will take any excuse to SCUBA dive, free dive, go boating, and wake board. He also enjoys underwater photography. When you visit the office, be sure to take a look at Dr. Escott’s original photography on display. If you have some time to kill, ask him to show you some of his dive pics!
