When not practicing dentistry you can find Dr. Cottongame sitting in a deer stand, taking in as many baseball games as he can or on a golf course often looking for a stray tee shot. He is beyond excited to be back home in Ellis County to provide the best possible treatment to the community that raised him and that he considers family. Professional Affiliations
