Meet Dr. Cohen
“I’ve always been fascinated with anything mechanical and especially by how people benefit from machines and technology. Because of this, it seemed very logical that I progressed from working as a truck mechanic, to earning physics and chemistry degrees, to dentistry, orthodontics, and, finally, a Master of Science degree in Dentistry. I love working with my hands and I am passionate about improving people’s lives.
The uniqueness of orthodontics is what initially drew me to the profession. It’s like no other job in healthcare. Orthodontics is based solely on helping others help themselves. It’s similar to the partnership forged between a coach and a player. I’m the coach and I give patients the tools to perform. The most enjoyable aspect of my job is changing lives for the better and knowing that I’ve made such a positive long-term impact on their health and well-being. I am very proud of my nature to put people at ease, make good, logical decisions, and simplify difficult and complex problems. I have a reputation for taking a very conservative approach to orthodontics and I am often called upon by parents and dentists to offer second opinions.
They say when you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life, and I have had the pleasure of not working a single day over the past 25 years. I love the daily interaction with people and enjoy building friendships. It’s an honor to be so integrated in the community.
My office is a very warm and informal place. I want patients to feel as if they’re going to visit a friend rather than a doctor’s office. I am available to my patients 100% of the time. My home phone number is listed and everyone gets my cell phone number. I hope to give my patients a pleasurable experience while ultimately contributing to their confidence, self-esteem and dental health, all while focused on a positive, friendly attitude. I believe in our mission of providing ‘priceless smiles’. Simply put, we want everyone to feel like they got a bargain.
Much of my free time is spent restoring old cars and trucks. I fabricate, build, modify, and restore anything mechanical. I also love everything outdoors, especially hiking, biking, and kayaking. I am a rescue SCUBA diver and have recently taken up mountain climbing and have successfully climbed Mount Rainier! I also enjoy coaching youth sports and playing sports with my children.”
