Growing up as the son of an orthodontist, I spent many hours with my father around the house and in his office.   As I worked for him in his practice through high school and college, I was exposed to the ways in which a beautiful smile can positively impact a person’s life.  This experience made it clear to me that I wanted to follow in his footsteps and positively affect smiles and lives.  Today I continue to keep up with the advances in orthodontics so that I can provide our patients with the best care possible.  My goal in my professional life is to use the best and most up to date technology and treatment philosophies to deliver invaluable lifelong smiles that are infectious and spread warmth and happiness.   At Coghlan Orthodontics we strive for a friendly yet professional and educated staff to service all your needs.   I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss all of your concerns, both esthetic and functional. By understanding your individual needs and desires, I can design a custom treatment plan specifically for you.  Our office makes every effort to provide you with a way to the smile you have always wanted and will do our best to assure you enjoy the journey to a “Healthy Hoosier Smile“.  I look forward to becoming your orthodontist and helping you on this path.
