Jared R. Cottam, DDS, MD

Dr. Cottam grew up climbing trees, building forts, and playing basketball in Houston, Texas. His family moved to Salt Lake City where he worked on his undergraduate at the University of Utah. It was there he met and married his sweetheart, Melissa. Together they moved to Los Angeles to attend the UCLA School of Dentistry.

He was later accepted to the Louisiana State University in New Orleans where he received his MD and subsequently started his oral and maxillofacial surgery training. After the devastation of hurricane Katrina, Dr. Cottam and his young family were compelled to move to Texas where he would finish his oral surgery residency at the University of Houston. At the completion of his residency, the Cottams relocated to Denver, Colorado where he completed an implant, bone grafting, and tissue engineering fellowship.

While in Denver, he had the opportunity to teach and direct the implant fellowship and work with the local residency program. He, his wife Melissa, and their five children have recently established roots in Seattle where he enjoys spending time with his family, outdoor recreation, and traveling.
