Dr. Mary Ann Work
Dentist in Scottsdale AZDental Works
I am most passionate about educating our patients on their oral health. I believe that is the key to a healthy mouth and a healthy body. It is exciting and rewarding to work with so many unique people on a daily basis. Each person I meet makes me realize that everyone is different and needs to be treated as such. My profession also gives me an opportunity to not only improve the health of my patients, but also to be a role model for young women in my community. I am proud to be a female dentist and business owner.
Education and Continuing Education
I grew up in Beaverton, OR, and attended undergraduate school at Carroll College in Helena, MT. I moved back to the Portland area for my graduate and dental school, attending Oregon Health Sciences University . Following graduation, I spent four years serving in the US Navy as a Dental Officer in San Diego, CA, before coming to Scottsdale to open my private practice.
Much has changed in the world of dentistry since I graduated. I constantly go to continuing education courses so I can stay up-to-date on the latest in dentistry for my patients. I believe continued education allows me to offer my patients a wide variety of treatment options with the most possible comfort.

Outside the Office
I love living here in Scottsdale with my husband and practice partner, Terry. We have two grown sons, Scott and Ted, and two hairless cats, Ruby and Baldo, to keep us company at home. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, shopping, and dancing, but my favorite pastime is celebrating and decorating for any and all holidays.
