Meet Dr. Coke
As the son of a military dentist, I spent time growing up in Ohio, Georgia, and New York. I was exposed to the dental profession at a young age, and my interests in medicine and dentistry ultimately led me to pursue a career as an oral surgeon.
In 2011, I received my bachelor’s degree in Biology from Villanova University in the suburbs of Philadelphia. This is also where I met my wife, a native of Birmingham, and my ties to Michigan first began.
Upon completion of my undergraduate education, I taught 8th grade math for a year in Philadelphia before enrolling in dental school. In 2016, I received my D.M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. After dental school, I was accepted into the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. I went on to become Chief Resident of the program and furthered my training in dental implants and dento-alveolar surgery, maxillofacial trauma, cleft and orthognathic surgery, temporomandibular joint disorders, and benign maxillofacial pathology.
I am excited to be relocating to the Metro Detroit area and I look forward to becoming involved in the community in both my professional and my personal life. I am fortunate to have interacted with all types of people from all over the country. My goal is to treat each patient with the same thoughtfulness, empathy, and compassion that I would expect as a patient.
In my free time, I enjoy exercising, biking, music, and traveling. I married my wife, Alex, in 2018, and I am looking forward to starting a family soon.
