Brian Cook, DMD - Huntsville Dentist
Huntsville dentist, Dr. Brian Cook, was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama.
He graduated magna cum laude from the University of South Alabama having majored in
Biology. He pursued his dental training at the University Of Alabama School Of Dentistry,
earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine. After graduation, following his passion for dentistry
and compassion for the underprivileged, he and his family moved to rural North Carolina where he
served in public health. Dr. Cook was then given the opportunity to enter a private practice in
Thomasville, NC. His time in Thomasville proved to be a wonderful experience where he expanded
his skills as he learned from the mentors around him.
Given that Alabama is home for Dr. Cook, he proudly returned to work as a Huntsville dentist. He
currently maintains membership in the American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American
Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Alabama Dental Association, the Madison
County Dental Society and the University Of Alabama School Of Dentistry Alumni Association. Dr.
Cook’s practice is based on an appreciation for continuing education, and he is currently pursuing
completion of the Dawson Academy curriculum for TMJ disorder. Additionally, Dr. Cook has sought
post-graduate education in anterior esthetics, smile design, removable prosthodontics, and oral surgery.
Dr. Cook believes in a conservative approach to dentistry, and he goes out of his way to spend time
with his patients to maximize understanding and assist in making decisions for treatment. His patient-awareness
and utilization of minimally invasive dental procedures makes him a premier choice for cosmetic and
family dentistry in the Huntsville area.
Outside of the office, Dr. Cook enjoys spending time with his wife, Esther, who is from Huntsville.
Together with their two children, Dr. Cook and Esther enjoy spending time camping, hiking and cycling in beautiful North Alabama.
