Dr. Kogan’s philosophy is centered around building meaningful relationships with patients based on respect and the delivery of exceptional dentistry. He is passionate about showing patients the possibilities that contemporary biological dentistry has to offer them, and assisting them in surpassing their goals and visions for their smile and oral health. He has extreme interest in the oral health-systemic health connection, and tries to minimize the potential impacts of dentistry on the overall health of each patient.
Dr. Kogan is fortunate to have had the opportunity to train and learn with some of the finest restorative and biological dentists, physicians, and naturopaths in the world. His core beliefs require that he does everything necessary to provide the most optimal, prudent, and individualized treatment for his patients who trust his care, skill, and judgment as their primary oral healthcare provider.
Dr. Kogan’s practice is built around a continual environment of learning. His formal undergraduate studies were completed at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, while obtaining his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland.
Since that time, Dr. Kogan’s immersion in advanced continuing education courses are too numerous to list here, but the most notable courses will be documented below. His continuing education interests are predominantly focused in the areas of biological dentistry, restorative dentistry, adhesive dentistry, orofacial pain and temporomandibular joint disorders, splint therapy, and advanced dental sleep medicine. He is always available to discuss his philosophies and modalities of treatment with anyone who may be more interested.
Dr. Kogan has been continually recognized by his peers as a “Top Dentist” in Cleveland and Cleveland Magazine for many years.
In his personal life, he enjoy CrossFitting (http://www.crossfit.com), Cleveland professional sports, Michigan collegiate athletics, photography, reading (non-fiction), music, and spending time with his family.

Notable Continuing Education Experiences
A bridge is the traditional means of replacing a lost tooth. We simply create support on either side of the gap and place the replacement tooth or teeth onto them. The downside to this is that creating the support means sacrificing perfectly healthy tooth structure. For this reason, they’ve begun to fall out of favor with biological dentists. However, the end result is durable and attractive, recreating the look of natural teeth.
Partials & Dentures
When multiple teeth are missing, a partial denture can be provided to replace those teeth, though the lightweight, flexible materials available today mean even one-tooth “pop-in” partials are an option for those who prefer not to get implants. Both removable and implant-retained dentures are available.
Whether you need a partial or full denture, we can provide a metal-free prosthetic to give you back your smile.
These days, implants are the choice option for replacing missing teeth. Each implant is surgically placed into your jaw where it integrates with the bone to create a kind of artificial tooth root. A restoration or denture is then placed on top of the implants, providing both the look and function of natural teeth. While most dentists continue to place titanium only, more dentists are turning to ceramic, which provides even better aesthetics in a mouth that remains metal-free.
