Meet Dr. Cochran – When he’s not straightening teeth, you can probably find Dr. Cochran at Home Depot. He’s always finding new DIY projects to do around the house. He also enjoys life outdoors golfing, hiking, cooking, fishing, and riding dirt bikes with his sons. Some of their greatest fulfillment as a family is time spent giving back to the community through programs and projects close to their hearts. Dr. Cochran and his wife Eileen, actively support SAMM Ministries, Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM), animal rescue and adoption, and the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. Since returning to San Antonio, they have supported numerous charities and events serving on Boards or serving on event committees or donating time with clients. Lifelong rewards have been through ACTS Missions and mentoring students from elementary through high school, and into adulthood and as member of San Antonio District Dental Society, mentoring dental students in their Freshman and Sophomore years.
Dr. Cochran attended the University of Texas at Austin as an undergraduate and graduated from the The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. After practicing general dentistry for 7 years, he made the decision to pursue his true passion and returned to school, this time at The University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston to specialize in orthodontics. In addition to obtaining his post-doctoral certificate specializing in orthodontics, Dr. Cochran wrote his Masters thesis on bonding orthodontic brackets to porcelain, awarding him a Masters of Science degree.
