Nathaniel Cogswell was born in Rockford, IL, went to high school in Kansas City, MO, and then graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Biology. He then attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and completed his studies in 2014, graduating with the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. During that time he particularly enjoyed the 3 months he spent in Bergen, Norway as part of a dental school foreign exchange program and the honors course in intravenous-moderate sedation that he was able to take with the oral surgery department director.
Upon completion of dental school, Dr. Nate decided to complete an optional year in a general dentistry residency program located at TMC-Lakewood Hospital in Kansas City, MO. He spent his time as a dental resident in a dental clinic at the hospital, collaborating with various dental specialists to gain more knowledge and experience with complicated procedures and patients. Through this training, he has become knowledgeable in and qualified to complete most root canals, extract teeth that require a surgical approach including wisdom teeth, place implants, and many other aspects of dentistry not normally provided by a young general dentist. Dr. Nate also spent additional time providing emergency dental services for patients that went to the ER for dental pain/trauma and completed more than double the required training hours and cases to receive his certification for providing intravenous-moderate sedation for patients.
Dr. Nate and his wife decided that Minnesota is where they want to live, so Dr. Nate joined Saint Anthony Park Dental Care in July 2015 after completing his residency. He has very much enjoyed being a part of the practice, working with the wonderful staff, and starting to form relationships with the patients who are members of the Saint Anthony Park Dental Care family. The previous dentist, Dr. Todd Grossmann, determined that Dr. Nate was capable and worthy enough to take over the practice in his stead, which allowed Dr. Grossmann to retire with the knowledge that his patients are in good hands.
