Meet the Children’s Dental Family

Dr. Jeremy Scholzen, DMD

Pediatric Dental Specialist

Graduated from Pediatric Residency in 2007 and opened Children’s Dental September 2007.

Dr. Scholzen was “born and raised” in Hurricane, Utah and is glad to be home to open a pediatric dental office here in Southern Utah.

He graduated from Dixie College and Southern Utah University before completing dental school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He then completed a Pediatric Dental Residency at the #1 children’s hospital in the Midwest, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Scholzen has spent time volunteering in Honduras as a Pediatric Dentist to the undeserved communities there.

He is currently licensed in Utah, Nevada and Ohio… but he is happy to call Southern Utah “home” for he and his wife and their four children.

Dr. Brandon Spencer, DMD

Graduated from Pediatric Residency in 2013 and joined the Children’s Dental team in July of 2013.

Dr. Spencer grew up in Idaho and attended Case Western Reserve University with Dr. Scholzen for dental school. After graduation, Dr. Spencer served in the United States Army for 5 years as a General Dentist, including a deployment to Iraq. He then completed his residency at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and moved his family to Cedar City. You will find him primarily in our Cedar City office, however, to better serve our patients he also helps in St. George from time to time.

Laurie Scholzen

Office Manager and married to Dr. Scholzen


Joined the team in 2008 right after we moved into our St. George office. She grew up in Hurricane, Utah. You will find Abby mostly working as a dental assistant, unless you are in the St. George office early in the morning for a conscious sedation, she will usually be the first face you see checking in patients then.


Joined the team in 2011. Autumn is primarily found at our Cedar City office and is the insurance guru there. She joined the team when she moved back to Southern Utah after being in Boston and working for Aspen Dental for over 10 years.


Joined the team July 2009. Currently in the predental program at Dixie State College. Curtis has two cute little girls and is an amazing assistant. We often have patients who request him when they come in. He is a huge help to all of our Spanish speaking patients.


Joined the team in September 2013. Danny came to us after graduating high school in Las Vegas. She has truly been home grown in our office by getting her assisting training from Dr. Scholzen and the other staff members here at Children ‘s Dental. Danny’s is also one of our Spanish speaking assistants!


Joined the team in 2011. Darrell is the office manager at our Cedar City location, however you will often find him out at all of the events in the community. Most know him from his previous banking experience in the Cedar City area and from his involvement with the Chamber of Commerce.

Jessica H.

Joined the team spring 2009. Jessica has three little boys and although she moved here from Michigan she grew up in Utah. She was an easy fit to our office, with her Spanish speaking skills and her previous dental assisting experience.

Jessica Healey

Joined the team in March on 2012. Jessica is originally from Northern Utah and completed a Dental Assisting school in Lehi. Jessica took a quick sabbatical to move home and get married and then she and her husband moved back to St. George to start their married life together.


Joined the team in May 2012. Born and raised in St. George she loves horses, cows, hunting and generally anything outdoors.

Once in a while you may see…


Nick is a full time paramedic in Hurricane, however prior to being offered a full time position with the city he was a full time dental assistant at our office for over 3 years. He still makes an appearance now and then, when his schedule will allow him to come and help and when we need him.


Jimmy has been off and on with us since we opened in September 2007. He took some time off to play pro baseball, however when his carrer was cut short due to injuries he came back and joined us full time as a dental assistant. He recently was accepted into the nursing program at the University of Utah so will be with us less and less, however we will bride him to come back and work whenever we can because he is so good with the kids.
