If you don’t feel comfortable with your doctor, just scheduling an appointment can feel like a chore, let alone keeping that appointment. But if your doctor is Dr. Archie Cook, Jr., you can count on not only feeling at ease and relaxed by his warm chair-side manner, but also soothed by his passion for excellence.
A native of North Carolina, Dr. Cook completed his undergraduate studies at North Carolina State University and went on to graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. Following his formal education, Dr. Cook served seven years in the United States Air Force. One of those years was spent as the Air Force liaison to the ADA New Dentist Committee. He also completed a year of advanced education in a general dentistry residency program, and while stationed in England for two years, he worked under the tutelage of board-certified specialists in oral surgery, endodontics, and periodontics.
Since then, his desire to learn and grow has never stopped and he participates in continuing education whenever he is able to take a moment from his patients and his family. He has enhanced his clinical skills through extensive coursework from world-renowned Spear Education Institute and is working toward the prestigious fellowship awarded by the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Cook is also a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), the only non-profit professional association dedicated exclusively to the practice of dental sleep medicine. Dr. Cook helps treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy, an effective treatment that is covered by most insurance plans. AADSM membership provides Dr. Cook with access to educational resources and practice management tools that help him better serve his patients by providing the highest quality of care in the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

When not helping his patients find their signature smiles or attending continuing education courses, Dr. Cook loves spending time with his wife, Allyson, and the couple’s latest addition, their daughter, London Grace. He also enjoys traveling, fishing, and golfing.
