About Dr. Cotton
While it is customary for a website biography to simply mention Dr Cotton’s affiliations with multiple dental associations, those relationships don’t effectively explain how she came to be so devoted to her chosen career. Dr. Cotton has not experienced a conventional dental career. To date, this lifelong passion has traveled with her over 45 years in 7 states.
Her first academic milestone was a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Louisville; this was followed by nearly 20 years of experience as a registered hygienist in Kentucky, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Indiana. An avid thirst for knowledge eventually pulled her into post-graduate curriculum. She subsequently dedicated another four years of study to the University of Kentucky, and received her Doctor of Dental Medicine in the summer of 1993.
