Dr. Nathan Coughlin joins our team from California. Dr. Coughlin, a native Canadian and proud college basketball alumnus, was born in Grand Prairie, Alberta where he spent the first 18 years of his life. After attending college in Alberta (and aching for some warmer weather), Dr. Coughlin entered dental school at the University of Southern California, where he was a Deans List scholar. Along with obtaining his specialty degree in Advanced Orthodontics Dr. Coughlin found true love when he met his wife who was also a dental student at USC and now a general dentist.
Dr. Coughlin is Invisalign certified and is trained in the placement and mechanics of TADS. He is a member of many societies including the American Association of Orthodontics and is “excited about being a part of a new community and being a part of a great team, we are looking forward to many more years of growth in the DFW metroplex.”
