Dr. Trent Cox cares for patients as an orthodontist at our Middleton, Sun Prairie and Waunakee locations.
Dr. Cox recently obtained his American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) certification. Fewer than 20% of orthodontists are board certified. There are only four other orthodontists in Madison who are ABO-board-certified. Involvement in the certification process is a demonstration of an orthodontist's pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence. This effort is well beyond what is required to practice orthodontics.
Dr. Trent Cox comes to First Choice Dental Orthodontics from Arizona where he was born and raised. He attended Arizona State University. He spent two years in the Dominican Republic where he learned to speak Spanish while serving a church service mission. Dr. Cox welcomes the chance to speak and serve any of his Spanish-speaking patients. After returning to Arizona he completed dental school and earned his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree (DMD) at A.T. Still University Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. It was there that he also received his certificate in Public Health, Certificate in Orthodontics and his Doctor of Health Science degree (DHSc).
Dr. Cox is active in his church and enjoys all outdoor activities. He is an accomplished long distance runner, having competed in both marathons and ultramarathons. He also loves competing in mountain biking and road cycling races. He enjoys hiking, with his most recent hike being Mt. Whitney and his favorite being the Grand Canyon.
Most importantly, Dr. Cox is a family man. He and his wife Carrie are the parents of four children, three girls and a boy. Dr. Cox and his wife are excited to raise their family in Wisconsin. Dr. Cox loves being an orthodontist in Madison and considers it his dream job. He considers creating beautiful smiles one of the most fulfilling pursuits in his life.
