Dr. Payton Cook, DDS

I grew up right here in Richmond! I went to Shady Grove Elementary, Short Pump Middle and Deep Run High School!

I went to University of South Florida where I majored in Biomedical Sciences with a Dual Minor in Biomedical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. I was a Division 1 student athlete and captain of the women’s soccer team!

I attended Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry

University of Texas Health and Science Center at Houston  

I’m a big fitness junkie! I love spending time at the gym and exploring the outdoor running trails that Richmond has to offer.
I’m engaged to my dental school crush. He is in his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at VCU. We get married in October! Both of our families live in Richmond and we love to spend time with them whenever we aren’t busy obsessing over teeth.
The American Association of Orthodontists Foundation Vanguard Society, American Association of Orthodontists, Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society, American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association,Texas Orthodontic Foundation, and the Psi Omega Dental Fraternity.
There is no cooler experience than watching patients light up on the day their braces are removed! Smiles are meant to brighten rooms and the confidence patients have when they’re done with treatment have them shining from the inside out. I’m so blessed to play a role in those transformations.
