A Long Island native, Dr. Scott Winokur graduated from SUNY with a Bachelor of Science degree and from SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine with a DDS degree. He is passionate about helping our Chapel Hill patients build healthier, happier smiles with cutting-edge dentistry. He also loves giving back, having had the honor of serving for eight years as a primary dentist for the Seneca Nation of Indians on their reservation upon graduating from dental school. During that time, he also worked at a private practice in a Western New York ski resort town.
Dr. Winokur began practicing in 2000 and moved to North Carolina in 2008, where he’s been providing comprehensive, high-quality dental care to the Durham and Chapel Hill communities ever since. Practicing alongside Dr. Corey Wilson at Meadowmont Dentistry since 2016, he’s an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the North Carolina Dental Society, the Chapel Hill Comprehensive Study Club, and the Durham/Orange Study Club.
To Dr. Winokur, dentistry is so much more than just fixing teeth. It’s about changing lives. We all deserve to feel good about ourselves, and a bright, healthy smile plays an important role in that, ensuring not only our physical health but our self-confidence as well. It’s why he feels so fortunate for the opportunity to improve patients’ lives through his attention to detail, gentle touch, empathy, compassion, and even great sense of humor.
Outside of the office, Dr. Winokur is an avid tennis player, kiteboarder, and pickleball player.
