BACKGROUND:

Mouth guards have been shown to prevent or decrease injury to teeth and jaws; preventing injury is much less expensive than treating it.  Dr. Glenn Cohen, is providing free custom mouth guards to protect young athletes from preventable injuries.  He is a board certified orthodontist and has practiced in McKinney for 5 years.  His website is www.orthodontex.com.

Dr. Cohen has a private practice located minutes away from the historic downtown McKinney square. OrthodonTEX is proud to have been voted “McKinney BEST 2016” by our community.

Dr. Glenn Cohen, is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), which has 18,000 members in the United States, Canada and abroad.  Orthodontists are uniquely qualified specialists who correct improperly aligned teeth and jaws (bad bites).  After graduating from dental school, orthodontists go on for an additional two-to-three years of education in orthodontics at an accredited orthodontic residency program.  Only those who have successfully completed this level of formal education may call themselves “orthodontists,” and only orthodontists are admitted as members of the AAO.

*NFPM is sponsored every April by the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Academy for Sports Dentistry and the American Dental Association.
