Meet Dr. Daniel Cocris
Dr. Cocris is an intelligent, hard working and caring Doctor with gifted skills that Dr. Massa has come to trust and is excited to practice with. Dr. Cocris settled in New York from his native Romania, working and putting himself through LaGuardia Community College and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. At the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, he graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor in Forensic Science. Through college, Dr. Cocris worked as a research assistant and an adjunct professor in biology and chemistry.
His passion for dentistry led Dr. Cocris to earn his Doctorate of Dentistry degree at the Rutgers College of Dental Medicine in New Jersey in 2013. Dr. Cocris earned distinction with awards for the International College of Dentistry Leadership Award and the American Equilibration Society Senior Award for Excellence. He was selected to the prestigious National Dental Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU).
Following dental school, Dr. Cocris teamed with other practitioners as part of Community Oriented Dental Education providing comprehensive dental care to severely medically compromised patients and completed a General Practice Residency at Queens Hospital Center in New York City, serving one of the most diverse groups in the U.S. These are outstanding, challenging and rewarding accomplishments that exemplify the character and skill of Dr. Cocris. He then continued to private practice in upstate New York until deciding, like Dr. Massa, to relocate to Florida in 2018. Dr. Cocris has postgraduate studies in Invisalign Certification, dental implant and grafting surgical training with the Dr. Garg Implant Continuum, advanced root canal therapy training with Dentsply, Dr. Cymerman and Dr. West and Real World Endodontic training programs. Like Dr. Massa, it is Dr. Cocris’ belief that one must be highly dedicated to continuously improving clinical skills and knowledge through continuing education.
Dr. Cocris is the oldest of 5 children. He currently resides in Naples with his wife, Alina, and their daughter, Zelda. When Dr. Cocris is not practicing dentistry he enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, cycling, archery, windsurfing, and yoga.
