Cook dental care staff

Maurine

Business Team Leader | Office Manager

I enjoy making sure each patient is smiling during their visit. We offer a comfortable, welcoming environment and provide gentle care that improves their lives, one smile at a time. I manage our front office, process insurance, and handle referrals. I also monitor our daily schedule, so everything runs efficiently, and make sure each team member has what they need to deliver the highest level of care.

I enjoy going to the gym and to the movies, and attending Liberty Hill Baptist Church. I love spending time with my children: Zarome, Keyana, and my beautiful granddaughter, Alayah.

 


 

Alma

Business Team Lead, Treatment Plan Coordinator,  Advertising and Social Media

Helping people is the best part of my day. No matter what they need, I’m here to make it happen, and do so with a smile. I enjoy the conversations that fill the day, becoming friends with our patients and their families. I answer our phones and schedule appointments. I also review treatment plans with patients, and help them make the most of their insurance benefits. My other duties include handling most of our practice advertising and our social media outreach.

I’m bilingual, in English and Spanish, and was born in Monterrey, Mexico. My husband and I have been married for four years. We have a Iovely Daughter, her name is Luna! love cooking, jogging, and am a professional photographer.


 

Tonya

Business Team

I love working in an office where each patient’s comfort is the top priority. Our team goes the extra mile, always, and we’re rewarded with wonderful smiles in return. Each patient is important to us, and we make sure they know how much we appreciate them trusting us to care for their smile. I verify patients’ insurance benefits, and handle billing and payment matters, too. I’m always available to answer questions, and love doing so.

When I’m not at work, spending quality time with family and friends is my priority. I also love traveling.


Dallas Perry

Resgistered Dental Hygenist

My specialty is working with people that deal with dental anxiety. I like to make patients feel calm and relaxed I'm very easy going and try to be as gentle as possible. I love caring for people and getting them excited about their smile.

I like to laugh and have fun and in my spare time I read, hike, and play the guitar. I'm also a volunteer second grade Sunday school teacher at Evangel Temple.


 

Sharon

Registered Dental Hygienist

I feel rewarded when I know I’ve made a difference in a patient’s oral health. Dedication and hard work is a “win-win” for the patient and me. I love seeing healthy and amazing smiles, and work with our patients to make those happen. While I’m cleaning teeth, treating periodontal disease, and placing sealants, I talk with patients about their dental health. I explain why it’s important to keep their mouth in great shape, and the best way to do that at home.

I enjoy spending time with my family. I love shopping, traveling, and dining out, and watching the Alabama Crimson Tide play. I’m a member of Central Baptist Church in Ellerslie, GA.


 

Ericka

Dental Assistant

I get to meet different people every day, enjoying our conversations and building relationships. It’s wonderful to see their smiling faces when they arrive for their appointments and to hear their thanks at the end of their visits. I work one-to-one with patients throughout their appointment, taking X-rays and sitting chairside during dental procedures. I also provide post-operative instructions and answer questions.

I have two wonderful children, Erin and Journey, and spending time with them, as well as other family and friends, is my priority. I’m a member of New Mt. Zion Baptist Church.


 

Betsy

Dental Assistant with Expanded Duties

I love working at a practice where everyone on our team is dedicated to our patients’ care, and making sure they have excellent oral health. Seeing happy and healthy smiles, and being part of making them happen, is rewarding. I love making patients feel comfortable during their visits. I take X-rays, assist Dr. Cook, and take impressions for dentures, too. My most important duty, though, is making sure our patients know they are welcome.

I’m originally from Puerto Rico and am fluent in Spanish and English. I’m very active at Light Path Pentecostal Church, where I’m the worship leader.


Ethan

Dental Assistant with Expanded Duties

I really enjoy working at Cook Dental Care! The staff is so welcoming and cares about every patient. I’m happy I can help people become confident with their smiles. I am a dental assistant, dental radiographer and a sterilization technician. I am also a treatment coordinator, welcoming and helping guide each patient through their first visit. I answer questions and try to keep everyone happy!

Growing up I was always self-conscious about my teeth, but I feared going to the dentist. When I graduated high school, I went to Dr. Cathy Cook for help and in two hours I could not quit smiling! I was so happy! That’s when I realized that I wanted to help others smile and feel their best! I attended Columbus Technical College and was accepted into the dental assisting program. I graduated fifteen months later as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. I’m originally from Indiana. I like to play sports, skateboard, and joke around. I’m the oldest of seven, soon to be eight. I thank God, family, and friends for helping me get to where I am today, right back at Cook Dental Care!

 


Dr. M. Warren

General Dentist, DMD

I am enjoying for the first time the experience of practicing dentistry as a civilian. I spent 26 years in the military treating mainly Active duty Soldiers. Even though I found that career to be very rewarding, I love being able to treat a wide range of patients from the very young to the seniors.
