I really find dentistry interesting and I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and so, as people come to our office to receive care, I feel it's important that we offer services that I don't have to refer people out, unless it is absolutely necessary, and so, we try to keep everything in the office as much as we possibly can. From fillings to crowns to dentures or partial dentures, we call it “nerve therapy” or you might know it as “root canals,” we even do those in our office as well. We offer a variety of different services and really, within the scope of dentistry, there's very, very little that I don't do.
So Dr. Scott Watterson, Dr. Laura Yetter, and the rest of our team in Jackson, MI work hard to make sure we address all of your family’s general dentistry needs! Whether you’re getting your teeth cleaned or getting measured for an athletic mouthguard, we take the time to address all your questions and concerns.
Unlike some corporate dentist offices where the emphasis is on upselling you additional services, we simply focus on providing the best care possible.
Dr. Watterson and Dr. Laura Yetter both received their Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from University of Michigan School of Dentistry. Both of them has years of experience treating dental patients

Make Routine Appointments A Habit
Dental cleanings and exams are the foundation of our general dentistry services. So in addition to checking your teeth for cavities, we also screen for conditions like gum disease and oral cancer. And we thoroughly clean your teeth, getting into spots you miss with your brush and floss at home.
In addition to dental cleanings and exams, our general dentistry services at Watterson Family Dentistry include:
- Athletic Mouthguards. We’ll take impressions of your teeth to fit you, or any athlete in your family, for a custom mouthguard that protects your mouth during sports.
- Dry mouth treatment. A lack of saliva isn’t just uncomfortable. It also makes your teeth more susceptible to tooth decay. We treat the symptoms with prescription products and also provide fluoride treatments to combat decay.
- Halitosis (bad breath) treatment. We identify the root causes of halitosis and offer products that improve your breath.
- Gum disease screening and treatment. We take gum disease seriously, as it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. We screen for it during every dental exam.
