Meet the Team at Serenity Smiles

At Serenity Smiles Dentistry of Scottsdale, we understand what it takes to provide an exceptional experience for our patients. Our dental team is committed to customized treatment, precision dentistry, and, most importantly—gentleness, kindness, and compassion.

Our dental office is a welcoming space staffed with professionals who are passionate about helping people and making a difference in their dental health. Every day we see the transformative effects of helping someone improve their oral health and take pride in their smiles. This is our intention for all of our patients, and we know we can help you achieve your healthiest, most confident smile.

We have created a soothing environment that patients tell us is more like a spa than a dental office. You will appreciate thoughtful touches like a coffee bar in our reception area, pillows and blankets in our treatment rooms, and a warm towel after treatment.

Our dental team would love to welcome you to Serenity Smiles and help improve your perception of what a dental appointment should be. Until then, please take a moment to get to know our doctors and the wonderful team who will serve you.

Our Doctor

“Transparency. That’s what I want to give each and every patient that walks through the door of our office from start to end.” –Dr. Waters

Your story matters to us. My goal of this practice is to create a family centered atmosphere where I can truly sit down and get to know every single patient. Dental treatment is personalized, whether you come in for cosmetic work, you have a toothache, or you just arrive for your regular six month cleanings. We are here to make your experience as easy as possible and I treat each patient as if they were my own family.

Dr. Waters received his undergraduate degrees in Biology and Chemistry at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. He then went on to Midwestern University in Glendale to earn his Doctorate of Medicinal Dentistry. The highlight of his profession is serving the community and providing the highest level of care. He has taken part in several smile makeover cases here in Scottsdale with the Tuttle Shuttle Charity. He has a particular passion for snap-in dentures on implants, fixed dentures on implants, and has earned a master certification in this area. He also loves to keep up to date with cosmetic dentistry practices and frequently takes continuing education courses.

Outside of work, he loves to spend his time reading, working on cars, and trying new restaurants. Dr. Waters and his wife, Katie, married in Maui in 2021. They have a Goldendoodle, Molly, whom he will occasionally bring along with him to the office. They have plans for upcoming travels later this year.
