Cooper Orthodontics Provides Patients With Beautiful Smiles And Much More

By Jason Stromberg

Brothers Dr. Andrew Cooper and Dr. Justin Cooper operate Cooper Orthodontics with the goal of providing patients with a beautiful smile in a friendly and enjoyable environment.

“It has been a very rewarding experience. In terms of working with my brother, it’s nice to be able to know you have someone who you can trust who provides the same level of quality care,” Justin said. “Our main message is we are a family. We run the business. We want everyone to feel like they are a part of our family practice.”

Cooper Orthodontics creates beautiful smiles at two offices, one in the Royal Palm Beach/Wellington area and one in Lake Worth.  “We enjoy what we do,” Andrew said. “The nice thing is that all of our patients have the eyes of two orthodontists on them. Cooper Orthodontics is truly a family practice, and we feel we provide patients with the best service and experience.”

Born in Philadelphia, Andrew and Justin Cooper moved to Boca Raton at the ages of 10 and 12, respectively. Although Andrew is older, they both received their undergraduate degrees from the University of Florida in 2005. Each graduated with a degree in food science and human nutrition. Andrew received his doctorate of dental medicine (DMD) in 2008 from UF, while Justin received his DMD from Harvard University in 2009.

After dental school, each specialized in orthodontics, spending an additional two years in post-graduate education. Andrew earned his certificate in orthodontics from Tufts University in 2010, while Justin graduated from the University of the Pacific in 2011 with a certificate in orthodontics and a master’s degree in dentistry.

“Customer service is 100 percent our first priority,” Justin said. “We are very fortunate that we can treat so many fun and lively kids. We want them to have a great experience visiting our dental practice. I should also mention that orthodontics isn’t just for kids anymore. Many of our patients are adults who want to improve their oral health by obtaining straighter teeth and improving their bite. In fact, we have many parents in orthodontic treatment with their children.”

Cooper Orthodontics offers free consultations, and there is a fun rewards program, where patients can get points and prizes for keeping their teeth clean, participating in contests and taking part in other activities.

“We make recommendations that we feel are in the patient’s best interests, but at the end of the day, our goal is to work with patients and make them happy,” Andrew said. “We want to work with each individual to develop a treatment plan, rather than dictating to them what they must do.”

Cooper Orthodontics offers metal braces, clear braces and Invisalign, which is a series of clear trays designed to straighten teeth. The practice is also a fully digital office, providing patients with a better experience. With new digital X-ray machines in both offices, the lowest dose of radiation is used to obtain the best diagnostic images.

Cooper Orthodontics has a digital scanner used for patients who are going to get the Invisalign treatment, which allows for a more accurate depiction of the patient’s teeth, providing better-fitting trays.

“We are able to help make sure that each patient’s private medical information is kept private, but at the same time, it is accessible to my brother and me if needed via our online software,” Justin said. “For example, if one of our patients has an emergency, we can quickly access our patient’s chart and medical history through our app, so that we can address the concerns of the patient or parent as soon as possible.”

Cooper Orthodontics also has programs to work with patients on the financial end.

“When it comes to finances, I think our office goes the extra step to make sure that cost does not get in the way of a patient achieving a beautiful smile,” Andrew said. “All of our consultations are free, we offer very low down payments, and we accept most insurance plans. We find a financial plan that works within everyone’s budget.”

The Coopers, who are in their third year of business locally, wore braces when they were younger. Andrew explained that this allows them to relate better with their patients.

“I was a very difficult case,” Andrew recalled. “Once my teeth were straightened by my orthodontist, it made me feel more confident in myself.”

The most rewarding part of the practice is the reaction of each patient when the task is complete.

“Every time we take a patient’s braces off, they are much more confident individuals,” Justin said. “They are just so happy with their smile.”

The Cooper Orthodontics office serving the Royal Palm Beach/Wellington area is located at 685 Royal Palm Beach Blvd., Suite 202, in Royal Palm Beach. For more information, call (561) 790-0319 or visit
