Dr. Scott Gore

General, Family & Cosmetic Dentist


Dr. Gore, general dentist, founder and owner of Midlothian Dental Center, focuses his practice on cosmetic, family and pediatric dentistry. He also practices sedation dentistry and is one of few dentists in Richmond licensed to practice IV sedation. He provides this service with the help of a highly trained and skilled nurse anesthetist.

One of the reasons Dr. Gore became a dentist is that he has long enjoyed working with his hands. He started with his hobby of building model trains, cars and planes at a very young age. His career in dentistry really began at 15 years old when he went after school to observe his family dentist. Ever since, Dr. Gore has been motivated to help people live long healthy lives by helping them keep their teeth as long as they possibly can. He especially enjoys turning dental phobic people into fans of dentistry through sedation dentistry.

Dr. Gore is a founding member and Chairman of Central Virginia Dental Care, one of the largest dental practices in Virginia with 111 doctors and 69 locations. He has been a member of the James River Study Club for 20 years and has served on its advisory board for the past 10 years. He is a former adjunct professor at VCU School of Dentistry where he graduated in 1989. Dr Gore graduated Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Randolph-Macon College in 1985 with a BS in biology.

When Dr. Gore isn’t busy doing general dental procedures in his office, he also serves as an expert witness in dental malpractice lawsuits. When he isn’t in the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, going to concerts, traveling, and watching sunsets on Gwynn’s Island.

Dr. Gore has been nominated by his peers as Top Dental Office in Richmond and awarded Top Dentist by Richmond Magazine and Top Dentist (Family & Cosmetic) by Virginia Living eight times and counting since 2010.
