About Dr. Cortopassi

Dr. Chris Cortopassi's journey to becoming an orthodontist has been driven by a childhood dream and a genuine desire to bring joy through transformative smiles. Ever since he went through orthodontic treatment in middle school, Dr. Cortopassi wanted to become the person who helps create new smiles, builds confidence, and witnesses the sheer delight of individuals as the braces are removed. 

He graduated from The University of Dayton in 2015, earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D) from Midwestern University School of Dentistry in 2021, and completed his master’s degree and certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in 2023 at Seton Hill University.

Beyond creating great smiles, Dr. Cortopassi is conversant in Spanish and holds a deep appreciation for his Italian heritage. Outside of the clinic, you might find him enjoying a bike ride, experimenting in the kitchen, diving into a good book, or trying out the best new restaurant around town.
