Meet the Orthodontist - Dr. Brent Cote

Dr. Cote grew up in the Gatineau-Ottawa region, his parents settling their family of three children in the suburb of Aylmer when he was 9 years old. Dr. Cote received his high school degree from École secondaire Grande-Rivière in 1996 and completed his collegiate training at CÉGEP de l’Outaouais thereafter. Though his path to becoming an orthodontist involved memorable experiences living in and travelling to different parts of the continent, choosing a place to ultimately set up his practice was an easy decision – it would be in the beautiful National Capital Region that he and his family have always called home.

In 1998, Dr. Cote moved to Montreal to pursue his dental training at McGill University. He excelled in this field of study and received several important honours:

  • Named to the Dean’s Honour List each year of the program;
  • Awarded the American Association of Orthodontists and American Academy of Periodontology prizes;
  • Awarded the Dr. James E.G. Harrison Faculty Scholarship for demonstrating the most firm commitment to the ethical practice of dentistry through interactions with patients and colleagues;
  • Awarded the Prix John K. Carver prize by the ODQ (Ordre des dentistes du Québec) for his exceptional academic performance.

At his graduation ceremony in 2003, Dr. Cote was bestowed the title of DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine). Having the option to enter general private practice immediately, Dr. Cote chose instead to further his training by completing a one-year General Practice Residency at the University of Nevada School of Medicine in Las Vegas. During this post-graduate residency program, he received advanced training in all areas of dentistry, with particular emphasis on pediatric care.

In 2004, Dr. Cote returned home to Gatineau where he practiced as a general dentist in the private sector for three years. He devoted much of his practice to the treatment of patients who were fearful of dental procedures, and he received pediatric referrals from his colleagues even as a fellow general dentist. Despite being passionate about all areas of dentistry, Dr. Cote developed a special fondness for orthodontics, and he therefore made the difficult decision to interrupt his work as a general practitioner to return to full-time university studies for three more years to become an orthodontist.

In 2007, Dr. Cote left Gatineau for Edmonton to pursue his specialty studies in Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics at the University of Alberta. He selected this school due to its renowned orthodontics program that offers one of the most modern and comprehensive clinical curriculums in the world. He again excelled in his studies and was awarded the Advanced Education Heritage Scholarship for exceptional academic achievement. He graduated with a Diploma in Orthodontics (Dip Ortho) and Master of Science (MSc) degree in 2010, and he completed one year of orthodontic private practice in Alberta thereafter.

Dr. Cote prides himself on remaining current with new developments in the ever-changing field of orthodontics so that he may always offer the best possible treatment options to all patients. He is passionate about his work and feels all the more fortunate to do what he loves in the place he’s always considered home.
