Who is Dr. Dean?

Dr. Dean Scott received his doctor of chiropractic degree in 1994 from Palmer College of Chiropractic West, in San Jose. Prior to becoming a chiropractor, Dean was trained as a certified massage therapist and taught massage therapy at Silicon Valley College in Fremont, California.

His first career was as a professional dancer with the Chicago Ballet where he was a principal dancer. He also owned and opperated the Scott Academy of Fine Arts, Inc. in Indiana. Dean later moved on to professional musical theatre and was on tour with the International Touring Company of “A Chorus Line” and the L.A. Company of “Cats”.

Having sustained some injuries during his dancing career, Dean sought treatment from a chiropractor and was able to extend his dancing career for 2 additional years. When he retired from dance he went back to school to become a chiropractor in order to help others in the same way that he was helped.

After 2 years in private practice, Dean joined an MD/DC clinic where he moved up the ranks to become Director of the Chiropractic Treatment area.

Dean lives with his wife in Santa Clara, and continues to stay connected to the arts by directing, choreographing and performing for local community and professional theatre groups.


I am a gentle adjuster and use deversified adjusting with muscle testing to determine where and how to adjust. I can also use motion palpation if you prefer. I am proficient with the use of a spring loaded adjusting device, and I do extremity adjusting. In the area of physical therapy, I have taught massage therapy, as well as, modalities. I use trigger point therapy, NMR, PNF, ART, and progressive resistance techniques. In my 20 years of experience I have treated most chiropractic conditions, ages three hours to 104 years and everything in between.

I am a caring professional with a true desire to improve the life and health of everyone I come into contact with. I will treat your patients with the same attention to detail as you would. As a doctor and a performer my lot in life is to bring joy and happiness to as many people as I can.
