Not having scanned many negatives before, I'm wondering if these are normal
artifacts from the developing process that is being amplified by the high
res scan or if my local developer has a issue?

Finding a C41 lab that does not scratch the film can be pain sometimes.
Also, the scanner can cause the scratches too.

Check your camera carriage system. By your description these are not
hap hazard scracthes, there is a pattern.
How tight is your film wound before you begin to shoot? Check the
rewind handle and turn clockwise to put slight tension on the film.
I had a similar occurance. Any roll of 36 had a major scratch on
frames 28 - 33
I did the film canister check, showed the lab ( they even went back
and ran several test rolls through). Upon close examination of my
camera back the section above the take up spook had a foriegn object
lodge to it. I don't know how I missed it before, but it was
carefully removed. Then I discovered a slightly protruding bolt or
screw below the take up reel that is being worked on right now.
BTW, thanks to everyone that has provided information and suggestions.
