Originally from Accra, Ghana, Dr. Zenaida Cofie immigrated to the United States in the early 1980's to pursue dentistry. After graduating from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry, she then went on to get her Doctorate of Dental Science from Howard University and her Master of Science, as well as her Certificate of Orthodontics, from the University of Maryland Dental School.
Soon after graduation, Dr. Cofie began practicing orthodontics in 1996, and opened up her own practice in 1998. In 2006, she relocated to her current space office space in the Towson Corporate Center, and opened up a satellite office in Severn, MD.
Throughout her 20 years of professional experience, Dr. Cofie has received many personal and professional achievements. She is a former president of the Maryland State Society of Orthodontists, as well as a member of the ADA (American Dental Association), AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) and the AGD (Academy of General Dentistry). When not practicing orthodontics, she serves as a Colonel in the United States Army Reserves, which has allowed her to travel the world and experience many new cultures.
Dr. Cofie has four wonderful children and a loving husband of over 30 years! Her eldest son received his BS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Maryland College Park, and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Southern California. Her eldest daughter is an alumna of St. Timothy's School in Stevenson, MD and recently received her BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California. Her youngest son is now a junior at Howard University pursuing Electrical Engineering. And her smallest daughter is a little too young to think about college just yet, but she'll certainly be in good company if she decides to become an engineer.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, spending time with her family and watching HGTV!
