Redefining Patient Relationships
“I develop a trusting relationship with each of my patients. That is why I take the time to listen to their concerns and do everything in my power to make them feel comfortable in my office. Though I stress the importance of good dental health and a beautiful smile, I do not judge my patients. Rather, I give my patients the confidence to achieve long-term dental health.”

Removing Fear and Anxiety From Your Dental Visits
“Patients often come to my office feeling anxious, as though there is no possibility of having a comfortable dental experience. But I’m confident I can help erase my patients’ fears and provide gentle, advanced dentistry they can count on, so their teeth can cease to be a problem in their lives. That’s why I became a dentist, to give people beautiful smiles and greater satisfaction with themselves.”
Knowledge. Experienced. Respected.
Dr. Bryan Cousin has been practicing for over 40 years. He says, “In that time, I have gained a better understanding of my patients, their fears and their treatment. Through membership in professional societies, I not only learn more about the latest advances in dental care for apprehensive patients, I am also able to share my in-depth knowledge of the subject with others.”
