A native of Shreveport-Bossier City, DR. CHRISTOPHER COSSE graduated from Captain Shreve High School and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. He was accepted into the dental program at Louisiana State University School of New Orleans (LSUSD).
He received certification in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland. He studied the differences in orthodontics and prosthodontics between the United States and Europe for a term at the University of Freiberg, Germany in 1997. Dr. Cosse was awarded the Pierre Fauchard Award for Academic Achievement while at LSUSD.
Since joining his father’s practice in 2000, he has strived to further his orthodontics knowledge and training. He has earned certifications in Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and Insigna. He has been trained extensively in the use of Vector Temporary Anchorage Systems.
He continues to drive progress in the field of orthodontics in many ways. In 2004, Dr. Cosse was invited to join an international group of experts, called the Insiders, who meet twice a year in different parts of the world to develop state-of-the-art techniques and materials.
In 2008, he was chosen to join an honorary task force called the Pathfinders, a group created of 25 orthodontists from around the world charged with reducing treatment times and improving quality. He even has several orthodontic patents to his name.
In 2006, Dr. Cosse was presented with the Louisiana Dental Association New Dentist Award, an award presented to a Louisiana Dental Association member who has distinguished himself by giving his time and talents to his community and shown an unselfish devotion to the dental profession.
He currently holds the title of President of the Louisiana Association of Orthodontists. The philosophy he practices is to
“provide the best orthodontic treatment possible while making it fun for the patients at the same time.”
When he is not having fun at work, Dr. Cosse enjoys spending time with his wife, Stacy, and their four children, Athan, Michael, Kalli and Stefan. He enjoys participating in triathlons and enjoys coaching his kids’ soccer and football teams.
