Dr. Cook grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. He attended the University of Mississippi and graduated in 1989 with a BA in Biology. He received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1993 from the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Dentistry. After graduation from dental school, Dr Cook was accepted into the pediatric dental residency training program at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, one of the largest children's hospitals in the nation. During his two years there, he received extensive training in every aspect of dental care for infants, children, adolescents, and teens. Some areas of specialty training were conscious sedation, hospital dentistry, dentistry for children with special needs, and craniofacial growth and development. Upon completion of his pediatric dental training in 1995, Dr Cook moved back to Mississippi and started a pediatric dental practice in Brandon. He has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all his patients and their families over the years, and considers it a privilege to help them keep bright smiles!
Dr. Cook enjoys outdoor activities including deer and duck hunting, spending time with his family, and New Orleans Saints football. He has had the opportunity to participate in several local and foreign dental missions and looks forward to continuing this in the future.
Dr. Cook is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and the Mississippi Dental Association.
