John Copous, LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore
Chief Enthusiasm Officer

John Copous

John worked down the street and was a patient for 14 years before becoming the enthusiasm officer for LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore D.D.S. John loves his job so much he likes to tell people that he wasn’t allowed to leave.

John is usually the first person you will meet on the phone. Walking through the door is an experience itself as you are always welcomed with a warm smile and a hello.

Most patients say they knew from the moment they heard him say hello on the phone they were in the right place. John believes everyone deserves the Red Carpet Treatment at LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore D.D.S. He loves sharing his passionate stories about dental transformations and rarely holds back his excitement for LifeSmiles and Dr. Randy Mitchmore.

Outside of the Practice:

John is a lover of the great outdoors and enjoys nothing better than sharing a beach house with family and friends. Not one to shy away from entertaining, you can expect to see John throwing a BBQ or soiree so that he can share his amateur stand-up comic skills with the party goers, and rumor has it those skills are pretty good.

Bucket List Item:

To live in a foreign country for one year, somewhere near the beach. Take some time to write an epic love novel loosely based on my large Italian family.

Your Hero:

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”. While fictional, the character incorporates admirable qualities from real-life people. She believes in the goodness of everyone, keeps on going, and moves forward despite any obstacle. She is able to find humor in other people’s quirks, accepts them, and makes sense of it all. Plus, she’s a little outrageous too.
