Dental OfficeDr. Cook began treating patients in the Richmond/Rosenberg area in October 1992. Her dental practice started out in a very small rented office space equipped with only two treatment rooms and one employee.

Four years later, Dr. Cook designed and built a state-of-the-art office building located just accross the street. In July 1997 she moved into her new dental office. In 2008, Dr. Cook expanded this dental building to include an orthodontic bay and additional treatment rooms.

Dr. Cook's dental education did not stop when she graduated from dental school. Every year, she updates and expands her knowledge and skill-set through extensive and targeted continuing education. Dr. Cook has distinguished herself among her colleagues in her commitment to continuing education. In 2013 Dr. Cook traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to receive the Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) award. The MAGD is one of dentistry's most respected and prestigious bestowed honors.

Dr. Cook also invests heavily in the latest technology which helps her deliver high quality dentistry with optimal patient comfort.

Dr. Cook believes a well informed and educated patient can and will make decisions about their oral health that they will feel both comfortable with and not later regret. We have an extensive collection of patient educational resources including videos, models, along with digital photography to help you understand exactly what can be done and what can be realistically expected.
