Dr. Nate Cogswell has purchased the dental practice of Dr. Todd Grossman at St. Anthony Park Dental Care, 2278 Como Ave. Grossman retired in January but may return after some time off to work part time, Cogswell said.
Cogswell is a familiar face at St. Anthony Park Dental Care. He started shadowing and observing the practice in spring 2012 while in dental school. He graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2014 and began working at the Como Avenue practice in July 2015. He purchased Grossman’s side of the practice on Jan. 4.
A native of Rockford, Ill., Cogswell attended college in Lincoln, Neb., and came to the U of M because of its focus on “patient care and comfort.” He did a residency at a hospital in Kansas City where he worked in emergency medicine. He is trained in sedation and emergency care and will bring surgical services such as wisdom teeth extraction and anesthesia to the practice.
Cogswell says he and his wife, Daniella, a native of Honduras, are embracing their lives as Minnesotans. He’s an avid bicyclist, recently tried snowshoeing for the first time and was sad to see the Vikings lose to the Seahawks on Jan. 10 (but was happy to see the Green Bay Packers win their game a few hours later).
