Dr. Leif Cobain of Cobain Orthodontics is passionate about giving his patients a healthy brilliant smile. He loves seeing his patients transform from being self-conscious about their teeth to confident individuals who laugh and flash their smiles without a second thought.

“I feel extremely fortunate to be an orthodontist and believe it is a privilege to help my patients improve their smiles, their oral function, and above all, their self-esteem,” says Dr. Cobain “It is important to me that the office environment is fun and positive so patients are comfortable the entire time they are with us. I truly care about giving my patients the best experience and smile possible. I believe everyone has awesome potential. I feel that orthodontics can help remove roadblocks that may hinder an individual's path to reaching their full potential.”

When asked why he supports LPIE, Dr. Cobain replied, “LPIE is important to me because it supports our local students and allows for a more complete and competitive education experience. We as a community want our children to thrive and the multitude of opportunities that LPIE provides helps make that possible.

“LPIE helps keep the Lafayette public education system highly ranked and therefore highly desirable for young successful families. These great families help maintain and improve the awesome Lafayette community that has existed for generations. All local businesses benefit from the support of our local community, and that is why we love to support LPIE!”

To give some background about Dr. Cobain, he attended UC Santa Barbara where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biological sciences. He attended the University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry to obtain his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2003 and completed his formal education there in 2005 when he earned his Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry.
