Dr. Cottrill, an Ohio native, was one of a few select students to graduate from a premier six-year dental program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. After being one of the youngest in the country to finish dental school, he followed the footsteps of many generations in his family and joined the U.S. Army, where he served on active duty for four years at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. During his time in the military, Dr. Cottrill received additional training with complex restorations, root canals, oral surgery, implants, crowns, bridges, and sedation dentistry. While planning to pursue a prosthodontics residency in the military, he learned his wife was accepted to graduate school in Houston, Tx. Dr. Cottrill then proceeded to a private practice in Houston with an emphasis on cosmetic and implant dentistry while his wife was advancing her education.
When Dr. Cottrill was given the opportunity to join world renowned prosthodontist and dental implant pioneer Dr. Ronald LuBovich, he relocated to Nashville, where he was trained in advanced prosthodontics, dental lab techniques, and complex implant surgery. Dr. Cottrill considers it a great honor to continue to operate our private in-office dental lab, one of the very first in Tennessee. It's in the dental lab that Dr. Cottrill works alongside our master technicians to create beautiful dental restorations. Having completed thousands of same-day CEREC (CAD/CAM) cases and trained many dentists to use CEREC, Dr. Cottrill applies his CAD/CAM expertise in the dental lab as well. Not only does Dr. Cottrill often personally design the most complicated and cosmetic cases, but he does quality control on everything produced in the lab. Dr. Cottrill is one of very few proficient in both analog and digital dental laboratory techniques.
Although he considers dentistry a great joy, outside the office Dr. Cottrill plays the piano, paints, and is an avid gardener. He enjoys spending time with his family and getting outdoors whenever possible.
