All aboard! You will notice Dr. Copenhaver’s passion for trains throughout the offices, from the artwork on the walls to the actual working trains that carry patient pictures around the treatment areas. Dr. Copenhaver is a licensed pilot and an accomplished musician, and enjoys flying when he can and playing guitar at his church, St. Jude, and other venues around Allen and McKinney.
Dr. Copenhaver began his education with a full music scholarship to Texas Christian University, from which he graduated with a major in biology and a minor in music. He went on to the University of Texas Dental Branch, where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, and then to Temple University School of Dentistry for orthodontic specialty training and his Master of Science in dentistry.
While serving in the United States Air Force, Dr. Copenhaver was stationed in Germany and at the Air Force Academy, where he practiced general dentistry, oral surgery, and maxillofacial reconstruction, and served as an orthodontic instructor until he retired a full Colonel and veteran of Desert Storm.
In 1988, Dr. Copenhaver moved his beautiful wife Lindsey to Allen, where he joined Dr. Schechter in practice at North Texas Orthodontics. He and his wife have been blessed to raise three wonderful daughters — Alex, Dionne, and Kyal — and now enjoying watching their five grandchildren being raised here in the community they love.
Dr. Copenhaver is proud to be serving the North Texas area and looks forward to seeing you soon in the Allen or McKinney office that is most convenient for you.
