Madeline is a highly trained dental assistant, who stays current with continuing dental education and dental materials.

What Maddy (as many of our patients and Dr. Cook know her as) likes most about the dental profession is seeing how changing a patient’s smile can transform their life.
As dedicated as Madeline is to her work, she is devoted to her family. She has two daughters and a son that enrich her life every day.
