To All Of Our Wonderful Patients, Families, And Friends

I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer, before you all know it, the holidays will be here!

I have some exciting news that I would like to share with you!! Effective October 7, 2022, Dr. Mike Cotzas will be joining the practice. Prior to and during the pandemic, I had been looking for a doctor to join me to share the responsibilities of providing the best of patient care while also managing a busy practice.

I believe (and so will you) that I really lucked out! I vetted many different doctors and corporate entities, none of whom satisfied my criterion, until I met Dr. Cotzas. Not only is he an experienced and superb orthodontist, with the highest standards, but he is also an honest, caring, and considerate individual with outstanding character.

Dr. Cotzas is a Board Certified Orthodontist with 20 years of private practice experience in NY and Long Island. Dr. Cotzas did a three (3) year orthodontic residency at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, NY. He has his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery. Following dental school and prior to his orthodontic residency, he also did a hospital dentistry residency at New York Hospital Center of Queens. As you can see, Dr. Cotzas is highly trained!

Dr. Cotzas and I share the same orthodontic practice philosophies as well as our approach to patient care and service. I think you will be delighted to meet and work to Dr. Cotzas. I will be bringing Dr. Cotzas up to speed on each and every patient’s treatment such that patient care during Dr. Cotzas’ transition into the practice is seamless.

With the addition of Dr. Cotzas, the name of the practice will be changing to “Orthodontic Associates of New Canann.” Dr. Cotzas will become the majority owner of the practice and I will continue to practice with less of a management/administrative role in running the practice. Effectively, Dr. Cotzas will be the practice owner and in charge, but I will continue to be available to all patients. I may actually have more time to address any patient or parent concerns, should the need arise.

Please welcome Dr. Cotzas to the practice. I am confident that you and your family will be in the best of hands. We will be having an open house in the future at the office for all patients and parents to meet Dr. Cotzas, in a more casual setting. In the meantime, for parents, kindly take time to come in with your child to meet Dr. Cotzas at their next appointment. I thank you for your continued support of our practice and look forward to introducing you to Dr. Cotzas.

Of course, if any patient or parent would like to talk to me about the addition of Dr. Cotzas, please do not hesitate to contact me at the office. Thank you again.

Best regards,
Dr. Austin W. Feeney
