Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Cook attended Indiana State University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry in 1996. He obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with High Distinction from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2000. He continued his education at the University of Tennessee College Of Dentistry where he earned his Master of Dental Science degree and specialty certificate in orthodontics in 2003. During his final year of residency, Dr. Cook served as Chief Resident for the Department of Orthodontics.

Dr. Cook has completed all testing phases of the American Board of Orthodontics examination process and is board certified in the specialty of orthodontics. He stays abreast of the latest advances in orthodontics with memberships in many professional organizations including the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics, American Association of Orthodontists, Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists, Indiana Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association, First District Dental Society of Indiana and Omicron Kappa Upsilon. His post-doctoral master's thesis was published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.

Dr. Cook is involved in the Newburgh and Evansville communities by sponsoring youth summer sports teams as well as various school sports and other extra-curricular activity groups. Community involvement is an important aspect of his practice.

Dr. Cook has practiced orthodontics in Evansville since 2003, when he opened Cook Orthodontics, P.C. Outside of the office, Dr. Cook enjoys spending time with his wife, Robin, and his son, Carson. He also enjoys traveling with his family, exercising, reading, and occasionally chasing a little white ball around a golf course.

Meet Our Staff

Hi! I’m Kelly and I will be taking care of you on your first visit to Cook Orthodontics. I have been a Dental Assistant for over 20 years and have worked in many specialties, including pediatrics, general dentistry, and most recently, oral surgery. I joined the Cook Ortho team in August 2009.

I really enjoy working with children as I have three of my own. Audra plays soccer and cheers. Bennett plays football, basketball and baseball. Laurel loves cheering on her brother and sister! In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family, reading, shopping, and of course, watching my children play sports!

Hi! My name is Whitney. Being at the front desk, I get to see and talk to lots of cool people, like you! When you call our office, I’m probably the one you’ll talk to and when you walk into the office, I’m the first one you’ll see! I have been in the dental field for over 10 years but I have worked with Dr. Cook since April 2006 and, to be honest, it’s not really like work because we have so much fun!

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, traveling, and gardening. I have two awesome step-children, Alex and Lauren, and a furry family member, Scooper. I look forward to meeting you!

Hello! I’m Rachel. You will see me in the clinic as well as helping schedule your next appointment. I graduated in 2006 from USI with an Associate of Science degree in Dental Assisting.

In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, shopping and going to concerts. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the Cook Ortho website! My name is Deanna. I am a Clinical Assistant as well as the Lab Coordinator. I make all the cool retainers that you receive at the end of your treatment. I have worked for Dr. Cook since January 2008 and I love it! We have a great time and usually act pretty goofy!

I have two daughters that had orthodontic treatment with Dr. Cook, and their smiles are beautiful! I have been a Dental Assistant for over 19 years. (That’s probably longer than most of you have been alive!) I love what I do. It is so gratifying to see the changes our patients go through during the orthodontic process.

When I’m not straightening your teeth, I enjoy cruising on my boat with my family and hanging out with friends. I have a dog named Dylan, two cats named Smokey and Chewy and a snake named Tiny. He’s really not very tiny though! I look forward to meeting you and hope to see you soon!

Hi, I’m Becky. I joined Cook Orthodontics as an assistant in August 2011. I am excited to be part of such a great team! I enjoy assisting patients through all stages of treatment and having the opportunity to see the end results- which is a wonderful smile! I have always thought of myself as a people person and I love being in an office where I not only get to work with great people but also get to meet so many awesome new people.

In my time away from the office, I enjoy being a mother to my two beautiful daughters, Alexandra and Nicole. I also like to spend quality time with friends and family. Depending on the season, you can find me hanging out beside a pool or cooking s’mores over a campfire! I look forward to meeting you very soon!

Hi, I’m Robin! I have been working at Cook Orthodontics since the opening in September 2003. I work in the business office behind the scenes, performing bookkeeping and payroll duties as well as coordinating our community involvement activities and local team sponsorships.

Currently, I work part-time for Dr. Cook so I can also spend quality time at home with my young son, Carson. In my free time, I like to travel, read, watch movies and spend time outdoors with my family!

I really enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere we offer at Cook Orthodontics. The people I work with are fabulous, and I’m lucky to have them as both co-workers and friends. Orthodontics is really the best job in the world – we have the opportunity to provide such a positive impact on people! And the best part . . . that smile lasts a lifetime!

Hi. I'm Ashley. I am so excited to be part of the Cook Ortho team! I graduated from USI's Dental Assisting program and began working for Cook Orthodontics in May 2014. I work as a Clinical Assistant and most likely will put your braces on, take them off and help with all appointments in between. I look forward to meeting you!

A fun fact about me is that I was a cheerleader for the USI Men's basketball team. Stunting is my hobby! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends, shopping and being outdoors.

Hello. My name is Beth. I have been in orthodontics for over 10 years as a clinical assistant and have worked for Cook Orthodontics since January 2015. I love adding humor to the office to help patients feel at ease and enjoy their visits. Laughter is the best Medicine!

Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my two children, Amity and Corbin. Of course I can't leave out Braeley, our miniature Yorkie! I also love going to St. Louis Cardinal games and traveling anywhere south. If I am lucky to assist you in my chair, plan on a few corny jokes and a few laughs along with your appointment. After all, we have to show off that smile!!
