Scott’s older brother, Carl, is also a practicing dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri. Dr. Scott Dahlquist graduated, like his brother, from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. After having returned to California to practice for a short time in the Coachella Valley, he bought a dental practice in Salt Lake City, Utah. He successfully merged another practice with his own and ran a solo private dental practice in the affluent Holladay area of Salt Lake City for eighteen years. When the opportunity presented itself to join up with his former classmate from UMKC in a group practice in Kern County and to move back to his California roots, he moved his family to Bakersfield in 2007 and became a partner shortly after at Capital Dental Group.

His focus in the practice is General Dentistry. He sees adults and well-mannered children. He takes pride in thorough diagnosis and treatment planning. He has post-doctoral training in Orthodontics including Invisalign. The Partners at Capital Dental Group are Elite Preferred Providers of Invisalign.

Dr. Dahlquist has many hobbies he has picked up over the years. In his youth he was actively involved in the Boy Scouts of America and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He worked as an adult leader while his two sons also obtained their Eagle Scout rank. Since moving back to California, he plays tennis regularly at the historic Bakersfield Racquet Club and has developed great friendships there. Dodger baseball is still a passion that burns on from his childhood when he sat in his father’s car in the driveway and listened to Vin Scully call a game like no other. He cheers for his college alma mater, Brigham Young University, and any game on the Tennis Channel. He dreams about fly fishing and loves to talk about it when he is not planning a trip. A few of his favorite locations include the Green River in Wyoming, Flat Creek in Jackson Hole, the Owyhee River in eastern Oregon, the Provo River, and the West Fork of the Duchesne River in late summer. His three grown children are his greatest joy and he loves to share his time away from the office with them.
