Fund and spread statewide mock travel days for special needs children and adults so they AND THEIR FAMILIES can navigate airports with less stress like the program in Albany.

The No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge

I, Scott Noren DDS, U.S. Senate candidate, pledge to not take contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.

Taking the pledge means that my campaign will adopt a policy to not knowingly accept any contributions over $200 from the PACs or executives of fossil fuel companies — companies whose primary business is the extraction, processing, distribution, or sale of oil, gas, or coal. I will provide a list of these companies upon request.

Medical and Dental School Issues

Cost of professional school education

 The 2017 average debt for dental students is over $287,000; it does depend on whether you go to public or private schools. Regarding medical school, it ranges from $32-52,000 per year for 4 years. NYU just announced they are making tuition free for their medical students. As a U.S. Senator, I would lobby universities to do the same for other medical schools but also for dental school tuition. Many are sitting on hefty endowments that could be free up to reduce costs for students.

Dental Licensure should not be on live patients

When you go through dental and medical school, you go through textbooks and also clinical procedures on patients. However if you graduate medical school, or if you specialize in a form of dentistry, the certifying exams are all written and oral questions. There is no live clinical patient to get your medical licensure and this should hold true with dental school as well.

Are your customers raving about you on social media? Share their great stories to help turn potential customers into loyal ones.

Better ethics training and know when to report problems

Though there have been strides in modernizing medical and dental education systems, ethics training is still either poorly provided or under-provided in many curriculums.

Step 2 Medical Exam should be free and offered in more places


Veterans in Politics, NY Chapter

About Dr. Scott Noren

I was born and raised in Illinois but have been a New Yorker since 2004. I am an Oral Surgeon by day

Dr. Noren's background


Dr. Scott Noren, 58, lives in Ithaca, NY with his wife and two of his 4 children.  In his spare time from a busy Oral & Maxillofacial practice and family life, he wrote two proposed Bills, one on student loan reform and another a small business loan program to stimulate job growth in anticipation of trying to take over this NY U.S. Senate seat. 

Dr. Noren has served on the Surrogate Decision-Making Panel of NYS for several years, serves on his local Dental District Committee and the State Hospital Dentistry and dental special needs Committee. Dr. Noren did his undergrad at University of Illinois at Chicago, Dental School at Loyola University of Chicago and Oral Surgery Residency at University of Missouri Kansas City. He served 6 years non-combat in the US Army and practices Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Ithaca, NY. He is the father of a special needs adult daughter who has autism and seizure disorder. Dr. Noren and his wife are very knowledgeable through experience on raising an autistic child and all the intricacies of doing so. Dr. Noren is a second generation American of Ukrainian-Russian immigrant grandparents. His father served in the Korean War and his mother was very active in the Jewish War Veterans organization in Chicago. 

Dr. Noren's top issues


Dr. Noren wants to change the picture of politics into a GEM:

1) Getting really effective bills passed

2) Ending add-ons to Bills that ruin them

3) Making a difference in people's lives and their pocket books

His main focus is on major student loan reform including capping student loan interest at 3%, and abolishing compounding interest on student loans; better domestic jobs and renewal of manufacturing; a better clean energy policy; much more affordable and quality healthcare; maintaining a strong military but advocating for stronger world alliances. We need leadership that reflects our core values, not lobby-money influenced career politicians.

END HIGH STAKES TESTING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS! More teacher driven, autonomy in teaching and letting teachers drive the design behind each student's IEP with parental involvement!

I support Jewish education and the right to have a Jewish national identity in Israel. I also support Arab-Israeli Jews who are very patriotic to the country and work side by side with their Jewish neighbors. The reverse is of course true too.

Dr. Noren's involvement

Dr. Noren has been a local activist as well as advocating for changes in our national healthcare system for years. He has also been involved in the clean energy movement as well. He serves on the New York State Surrogate Decision Making Committee.

Dr. Noren began as a Fracktivist, supporting a federal ban on Fracking since 2009. He has a modest following on Facebook under his ‘Federally Ban Fracking’ page and has attended many anti-fracking rallies and demonstrations over the years. This activism progressed to his joining the local Democratic committees. Over the years, he noticed that legislation to help with student loans, small business capital, women’s equality and more, was talked about but never passed by Senator Gillibrand.

Women deserve equal pay for the same jobs that men hold; instead of just talking about this as Senator Gillibrand does, he wants to actually enact legislation that will help on this issue.

Dr. Noren writes a small medical column in his local community magazine and is involved with the opioid drug crisis, offering some unique insights to tackling this national emergency.

The Rebbe and Shirley Chisholm

The last Lubavitch Chabad Rebbe called Shirley Chisholm for a meeting

Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman in the House was put on the agriculture committee and the media had a field day. "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" was the headline. He called her into his office and asked her if there were surplus crops in the U.S.? She said 'yes'! He asked if there were many poor women and children in the U.S.? She said 'yes'! Thus was born the WIC program and she credited this to Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, the last Rebbe of the Chabad Lubavitch movement.  The WIC program, although greatly expanded, still exists today; the joint effort between two very special people!
