Board Certified Orthodontist
Dr. Coughlin was originally born in Alberta, Canada. He attended the University of Southern California, graduating with honors and the “Outstanding Orthodontic Achievement Award,” as well as the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Award for outstanding academic achievement. During his time at USC, he co-founded the Student Professionalism and Ethics Club, where students were able to discuss how to improve moral values and ethics in the field of dentistry. He also met his wife Dr. Christine Coughlin at the school! Today, Dr. Coughlin is still passionate about the field he’s in, and his enthusiasm is contagious for patients and fellow team members alike. His favorite part of his work is getting to interact with a wide variety of people and improve their lives. So much of a person’s confidence is attached to their smile, and he gets to change those for the better every day.
Dr. Coughlin is a Diplomate of Orthodontics and a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Board of Orthodontics. The rest of his family still lives in Canada, including two older brothers, one older sister, and plenty of nieces and nephews. When he has free time, he enjoys relaxing with family and his dog Lola, spending time with friends, and playing any type of sport (but especially golf or basketball). Although he’s from Canada, he really dislikes the cold and loves being in a warm climate here in Texas.
