Meet The Dr.C Team

Dr. Josh Cochran

Dr. JOSH COCHRAN

Dentist

Dr. Josh Cochran is a Spokane native and graduate of Lewis & Clark High School. After graduation, he spent a year abroad in Denmark at business school then returned to the States and earned a business degree from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!). After an illustrious undergraduate career where he chaired this and was president of that in Seattle, Dr. C. flew the coop for dental school in Arizona...it's sunny there.

Upon his return to the Inland Northwest, Dr. C. spent several years honing his skills at services not typically provided by general dentists including implants, braces, sedation, oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, root canals, and more. Dr. C. knew he could create a brand of dental practice that offered modern service and value to patients, so he felt compelled to open his own practice in the Spokane Valley.

When he's not in the office, you may find Dr. C. hanging out at local lakes during the summer or snow skiing with his family in the winter. Dr. C. is a die-hard fantasy football enthusiast and plays basketball to stay in shape and not feel so old.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to earn your business. We think you'll love our office and staff and may, for the first time, actually enjoy (or at least not dread) going to the dentist.
