Meet the Team

Our Promise to You

We promise to treat you with respect and compassion. We strive to deliver the best diagnosis and treatment currently available in dentistry. 

Our goal at your initial visit is to address your chief concern. This may be a toothache, sensitivity, cosmetic evaluation, broken tooth, a cleaning, and/or a check up.

Once we address your chief concern, a complete exam is always necessary. During the comprehensive exam we will get to know you by asking a few questions about your health history, dental history and how we can best meet your dental needs. Then we will take necessary x-rays and check the overall condition of the gums and supporting bone (the periodontium), teeth, existing restorations, and soft tissue for oral cancer.

Dr. John Scott Sutherland

is committed to his patient’s comprehensive dental care. He considers each treatment and procedure carefully for how it will affect your dental health and how it will affect your appearance, as well as your overall health.

After high school, Dr. Sutherland decided to pursue a vocational trade that would be useful anywhere in the world, welding. He used his experience for many things including fabricating the metal framework for the roof of a small school in the jungle of Venezuela and later he taught welding in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program in Tijuana, Mexico.

In his mid-twenties, Dr. Sutherland was ready to pursue his career as a special education teacher, but before he began student teaching he changed his career path to dentistry.  Although that meant two more years of undergraduate study, he was resolute. Dr. Sutherland graduated from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 2001 and one year later bought a dental practice in Redding.

Dr. Sutherland is committed to ongoing learning and development in the areas of 3D dentistry with his Cone Beam CT, dental implants, sleep apnea, cosmetic dentistry, leadership development and medical billing.

Outside of the office, Dr. Sutherland still feeds his passion for travel and enjoys hiking with his wife, Shandel. The quickest way to get Dr. Sutherland to smile and talk, is to ask him about his wife, the 25 kids in his life, his beloved Bella dog, or his passion for the Good News Rescue Mission.
