Tyler Scott WCI columnist

Tyler Scott is a public-health-dentist-turned-certified-financial-planner living in Salt Lake City. He received his undergraduate degree in interpersonal communication from the University of Utah, completed his dental training at Oregon Health & Science University, and CFP® coursework from University of California, Berkeley. After 10 years of providing dental care to underserved populations, Tyler made a career change to follow a personal finance passion he didn't even know he had until he began reading The White Coat Investor blog in the months following his dental school graduation. He and his wife Megan, the WCI podcast producer, love to explore the mountains and red rocks of the intermountain West with their three young girls and to ski as much as possible. At WCI, Tyler often writes about his perspectives as a dentist and finance professional, his career transition, and family finance.
