One of Dr. Warren Cohen’s greatest loves has always been his work. He’ll be the first to admit that among his greatest reasons to smile, is helping others perfect theirs. His love of dentistry and orthodontics has become part of the family DNA. Daughters Rachale and Rebecca both graduated from Dental School and embarked on successful careers as practicing paediatric dentists in the USA. Now the family line has come full circle. Like father, like daughters. Introducing Smileline – two generations of passion for brighter, straighter, happier smiles.
Dr. Warren Cohen has been crafting beautiful smiles in Durham Region since 1989. Dr. Warren earned his dental degree and two-year post-graduate in orthodontics at the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry, and completed his membership and fellowship equivalent examinations in 1992.
Dr. Warren is known for his warm and empathetic demeanor, seemly bottomless fountain of knowledge in orthodontics, and a tireless dedication to clients’ peace of mind. Dr. Warren strongly believes that healthy bodies produce the healthiest smiles, which is why he has a proud tradition of sponsoring organized sports for kids in both the Durham and Vaughan areas.
Dr. Warren is Board Certified in orthodontics and maintains memberships in the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, Ontario Association of Orthodontists, Ontario Dental Association and the Toronto Orthodontic Study Club.
Now in his fourth decade of serving the Durham community, Dr. Cohen has many clients who are the children of the children he originally treated.
Dr. Rachale Cohen graduated from the University of Toronto (U of T) Faculty of Dentistry in 2006. While studying in Toronto, Dr. Rachale completed a one-year General Practice Residence (GPR) at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto; taught an undergraduate course in dentistry at U of T; and volunteered her dental expertise at Children’s Aid Society of Toronto where she first awakened her passion for paediatric dentistry. Upon graduation, Dr. Rachale worked for two years as a general dentist at a private practice.
In 2009, Dr. Rachale moved to New York and attended the University of Rochester Eastman Institute to earn a specialization in paediatric dentistry, then continued her studies in 2011 at New York University (NYU) to earn an additional specialization in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. While at NYU, Dr. Rachale directed a course on orthodontics for fourth-year undergraduate dental students.
In 2015, Dr. Rachale moved back to Durham Region to work at a private practice, and in 2017 saw an opportunity to complement her specialized skills with those of her father and sister – and Smileline was born.
Rebecca Cohen graduated from the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry in 2009. Her love of children motivated her to further her studies in paediatrics, going on to earn her specialization in Paediatric Dentistry at the University of Southern California Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. After graduating in 2011, she worked in California as a specialist for two years before returning home to Canada. She has been loved by all her patients and enjoys treating young people of all ages and backgrounds, including those with behavioural, cognitive or health challenges requiring additional care and attention.
In 2017, she and her sister decided to launch Smileline with a vision only possible when working with family.
