Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Cobain is passionate about giving his patients the opportunity to be proud of a healthy brilliant smile. He loves seeing his patients transform from being self-conscious about their smiles to confident individuals who laugh and flash their teeth without a second thought.

Education and Continuing Education

Dr. Cobain attended UC Santa Barbara, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences. He attended the University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry to obtain his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2003. He completed his formal education at UOP in 2005 when he earned his specialty certificate in orthodontics and Master of Science in dentistry.

Dr. Cobain has since made it a priority to attend continuing education courses in all areas of orthodontics. He is especially interested in the latest advances in technology such as Invisalign® and SureSmile®. Evidence-based dentistry is his focus because he “wants to offer only high-quality treatment options that have been rigorously tested and proven to be effective.” He is committed to giving all his patients the most comfortable and efficient treatment methods available.

In the Office

Dr. Cobain believes that his profession defines him. “I feel extremely fortunate to be an orthodontist, and believe that it’s a privilege to help my patients improve their smiles, their oral function, and above all, their self-esteem. It is important to me that the office environment is calm and my patients are comfortable the entire time they are with us. I truly care about giving my patients the best experience and smile possible. I believe everyone has awesome potential. I feel that orthodontics can help remove roadblocks that may hinder an individual's path to reaching their full potential.”

At Home

Dr. Cobain spends most of his time out of the office with his family and friends. He is a proud parent of his two young boys and his wife’s two young girls, who all keep him running! Together they all enjoy biking, soccer, baseball, and exploring the outdoors. His focus is being the best father he can be.

In his spare time, Dr. Cobain enjoys playing soccer, surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, and mountain biking. Whenever possible, he travels to the beach or mountains to enjoy adventure sports. He also enjoys attending or volunteering in community events. He believes that through such involvement, he not only improves his community but betters himself.

Meet Our Staff

Financial Coordinator

I was honored to join Cobain Orthodontics in 2015. Previously employed in multiple jobs and unable to advance my education, I knew I had found the right place that would help me focus on school and enjoy my work. Dr. Cobain helped me gain so much experience with scheduling and time management, and has introduced me to the crazy world that is insurance and finance. Although my ultimate goal is to become a veterinarian, Cobain Orthodontics has helped me explore my options in various aspects of healthcare.

When I am not in the office, you will find me outdoors, camping and hiking or walking my cat, Ginger.

Dental Assistant

I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to join Cobain Orthodontics. After graduating and starting my career as a Respiratory Therapist, I decided that dentistry is where my heart lies and quickly changed fields. Dr. Cobain’s friendly and family oriented office has allowed me settle in with ease. Within a short amount of time, I have expanded my knowledge and gained so much experience.

I love spending my free time with friends and family enjoying delicious dishes at local pizza parlors or making my way down to Disneyland. Belle is my favorite!

I have been a dental assistant here at Cobain Orthodontics since 2014. Our practice is an amazing place because of its great atmosphere. I enjoy working for Cobain Orthodontics because the staff and doctor always bring a smile to my face! Dr. Cobain’s efforts in providing the best care possible for his patients have inspired me to pursue nursing. Going back to school isn’t easy, especially as a mother, but Dr. Cobain has made it possible for me with his flexibility! From bonding braces on and getting to know our patients throughout the course of treatment, I wouldn’t change anything about my work experience.

When I am not in the office, you will find me at drag races and truck-pulling shows with my son.

Registered Dental Assistant

I started my dental career by gaining experience in general dentistry. I feel that a person’s smile is their best feature, and I want to help people feel confident and beautiful. Looking for a more upbeat and fast-paced environment, I decided to transition into orthodontics. I am so grateful I found this office during the summer of 2016! Cobain Orthodontics is a loving office with a fantastic team that is very inviting and has made me feel welcome! It’s refreshing to be in a work setting with people who are passionate about their jobs.

I have twin daughters who love to explore the East Bay hills and parks with me when I am not working.
