Dr. Coats is a native Texan, but please do not hold that against him. He arrived here in California in the summer of 2011, as soon as he could. After completing dental school in 1989, he set up a private practice in his hometown of Arlington, and after eight successful years, he returned to school to further his education in the field of orthodontics. Since graduating from his residency, he has worked in both private and orthodontics practices. He has two beautiful adult children, Landon and Lauren. Landon is currently interested in digital film, and Lauren is special needs and lives in a group home.
