Dr. Cooke

Dr. Cooke is originally from Marquette located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He completed his undergraduate education at Northern Michigan University in 1997 and his Dental School education at the University of Michigan in 2002. After receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S) degree he continued to advance his education by completing a three-year residency in Periodontics at the University of Michigan where he received his certificate to specialize in periodontics, as well as his Masters of Science Degree (M.S.) in 2005.

Following the completion of his residency, Dr. Cooke moved to the Fox Valley area and worked in private practice until opening Fox River Periodontics in the spring of 2007. He is a board-certified periodontist--a distinction less than 50% of currently practicing periodontists meet nation-wide. He holds active membership in the American Dental Association, the Wisconsin Society of Periodontists, the Midwest Society of Periodontics, the American Academy of Periodontics, Wisconsin Dental Association, and the Outagamie and Winnebago County Dental Societies.

Dr. Cooke and his wife, Jill, have two children, Connor and Lyla. He enjoys hunting, fishing, hockey, and spending time with his family.

Jill-Financial Coordinator

I came to Wisconsin from Michigan 26 years ago. My husband, Gary, and I have 3 kids, 8 grandchildren and 1 dog. We enjoy spending time with our family, riding our Harley, watching the Packers and being outdoors. I have been in the dental field for 25 years and started with Dr. Cooke in 2007 when he opened. I specialize in insurance processing and overseeing patient accounts.

Cherish-Business Assistant

I joined the Fox River Periodontics team in February of 2012. I have worked in the business administrative side of dentistry since 1995. My experience has primarily been in general dentistry, but I am excited to expand my knowledge to include the specialty of Periodontics. I grew up in the U.P. of Michigan (proud Yooper) but have also lived "below the bridge" as well as in California and Minnesota. My husband, Ernie, and I moved to Appleton in August of 2011 from the Minneapolis area. We have one son, Alex, who resides in the Twin Cities. We also have two adorable cats, Raven and Salem. I am an avid sports fan and enjoy reading, traveling, camping and love spending time with family and friends.

Tammy-Business Assistant

I enjoy being a part of the team here at Fox River Periodontics since 2014 and look forward to meeting and helping you with any of your scheduling needs. My husband and two daughters moved to the beautiful state of Wisconsin in 2013. I was born and raised in Southern California and have been in the dental field since 1989. My first roll in the dental field was as an assistant. I am happy to move to the front office where I can utilize my dental knowledge and office skills to better serve you. I love country drives, hanging laundry outside, watching the birds and above all spending time with my family and friends.


I received training in Dental Assisting from FVTC in 2003, and then, returned to FVTC in 2006 to begin my education in Dental Hygiene. During school I worked at Fox River Periodontics as Dr. Cooke's Treatment Assistant. Graduating in 2009, I went into private practice until I returned to Fox River Periodontics in 2012. I am excited to work with such caring team members and providing education and optimal health to our patients. Originally from Crandon WI, I now live in Oshkosh with my husband, Matt, and three great children, London, Estelle, and Leon. I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, music, and volunteer work. For the last few years, I have enjoyed being an Instructor at FVTC in the Dental Hygiene Department.


I joined Dr. Cooke's team as a dental hygienist in 2017. Before receiving my dental hygiene license I was a dental assistant for over four years. My favorite part about working in the dental field is educating patients about the importance of good oral hygiene care between cleanings. My family consists of my husband Jake and our two dogs, Myla and Phoebe. Outside of work I enjoy walking the dogs, snuggling up with a good book, hunting and fishing up north, and spending time with family and friends.
