What Your Friends Say
- Dr. Cook and his staff go above and beyond to make my children comfortable and confident to smile!! All three of my children have had braces by Dr. Cook. When you have three children needing braces, the first thing that comes to mind is MONEY!! Dr. Cook has set up a new plan, $189/month. This worked great for us. We are considered a "low income" family but with 0% interest, we never missed a payment! Plus, we even got a discount for multiple family members. I have always been a little scarred of dentists but after watching Dr. Cook and his staff with my children, they have renewed my confidence. In my generation, braces were very expensive, but with Dr Cook's new payment plan, looks like I will be next! Thank you, Dr. Cook and your staff for always being concerned, supportive and trustworthy. You and your staff have mastered what customer service should be!! With the biggest and straightest smiles, The Foss'Nikki Foss – Mid-May 2015
- My experience at Kevin Cook Orthodontics was wonderful. Dr. Cook and his staff are kind, caring and compassionate people. My and son and I are patients of Dr. Cook's. I was 42 when I got my braces on, I am happy I did it. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. I feel he is reasonably priced , his staff works hard to work around your work schedule and school. I highly recommend Dr. Kevin Cook for your orthodontic needs!Dana Heine — Mid-May 2015
- So glad we decided to go to Cook Orthodontics!!!! My 14 yr old needed braces last year and we had heard the radio ads about 'Fast Braces' at a local dentist office, not an orthodontist. So we went that route (because it was less expensive) .... After 9 months of braces, the dentist said that her teeth were straight and there was nothing more he could do. My daughter's teeth are not aligned and are still not cosmetically straight. She was very unhappy!! Now my other daughter needs braces, I have learned my lesson, we decided to go to an orthodontist NOT a general dentist. My experience at Dr. Cook's office was amazing, so much different than the dentist's office. Now both of my daughters have gotten a set of braces, and I am confident that they will have beautiful smiles when we are done!!! Thanks to Dr. Cook and his wonderful staff!Christi King — Mid-May 2015
- We could not have had a better experience with Dr. Cook and his staff. We now have two kids that went to Cook Orthodontics and have their braces off. They now have beautifully straight teeth and a wonderful self esteem and smile. Dr. Cook always went above and beyond to get to know us and our children. Cook Orthodontics made our entire family feel comfortable and were always conscientious to explain exactly what the plan of action was with our kids orthodontic needs. We occasionally had questions after their braces were removed and there was never any problems with any follow-up care. They always seem more than happy to answer any questions we have and saw us in a very timely manner if needed.David Kennedy — Early May 2015

- Thanks for a great experience and making my smile look great. Dr. Cook is very friendly and upbeat. His staff is friendly, and very timely on appointments. The office is top notch.Isaiah Hall — February 2015
- I have three teenagers who have all been treated at Kevin Cook Orthodontics. We experienced excellent service with all three children. The staff at Kevin Cook Orthodontics made sure we felt comfortable at all times and made the experience fun with games, contests, and prizes and also a trip to a local Miners Game. They were affordable and had reasonable payment plans. I highly recommend Kevin Cook Orthodontics for all your orthodontic needs.Tara Broy — February 2015
- Let me just say THANK YOU all so much for your awesome treatment of Parker! I knew you guys would be wonderful, but I had no clue you would all be truly perfect. I know we will all be great friends within the next THREE years. haha He LOVES is blue braces! (Oh, and I am trying to get him to say “Dr. Cook”…but he insists that the building says “Kevin Cook” so that should be what he calls him. So anytime he talks about his braces, he says that “Kevin Cook” put them on his teeth) Have a great rest of the week, and we will see you soon!Laura Miles — February 2015
- We have taken our granddaughter to Dr. Cook for the last 4 years. Dr. Cook and his staff have been so helpful in getting her teeth straight and beautiful! Everyone in the office has been very kind and helpful and it's been a great experience to have her teeth staightened to a great self confident smile.Leah Schuttek — Mid-January 2015
- We love Dr. cook and all of his staff. We definitely made the right decision in choosing his office. Dr. Cook and his staff are fabulous and super friendly!! Very comfortable office and have never had to wait more than 5 minutes. Plus his website is very kid friendly and has wonderful incentives. would definitely recommend for braces.Oct 28, 2014 | Posted by B.D.
- As an adult, I was very skeptical about getting braces. I had refused to smile for years because I was so self-conscious about my teeth. I had lost a front tooth during a bike accident when I was young. The current crown looked horrible and it was suggested to get braces before replacing the crown to improve the overall look. I got the Invisalign braces and am now almost ready for the retainer - and the new crown! It was easy, virtually painless and people really couldn't tell I had them in. Dr. Cook was patient and thoroughly explained every step along the way. Kudos to Dr. Cook and his staff!Sep 24, 2014 | Posted by L.C.
- I moved to S. IL with braces looking to find a Dr. who would accept me as a transfer patient. When most hesitated, Dr. Cook accepted me with no uncertainty. Dr. Cook and his staff were always so welcoming and friendly. The staff at both the Marion and Carbondale office always took the time to make me feel comfortable and really worked with me to schedule my appointments around work. In addition, when my insurance was being difficult and wasn't paying the bills. Dr. Cook and his staff never treated me any different and continued to give me the best care. Got my braces off yesterday and I am very pleased with the work they did in such a short period. Thank you Dr. CookKenneth Delahunt — August 2014

Great smile = confidence
Research shows that the better you feel about your looks, the better you feel about yourself. When your teeth look white and sparkly, you can relax, be in the moment and laugh. You are more confident and radiant. The mere act of putting your mouth in the shape of a smile changes the blood flow to the brain and actually makes you feel happier. The fact that smiling itself boosts your mood has a further positive impact because smiling has a contagious effect. When you smile, others are more likely to smile back, and are more drawn to you, thereby increasing your confidence and happiness even more.
Smiles and perception
You might not realize it but whether or not you’re smiling can have a significant impact how others perceive you. Having a radiant smile sends a huge positive message to those around you. It tells people that you are happy to be in their presence, and it creates an optimistic feeling in others. When you smile, people are more likely to assume you have positive qualities — they perceive you as more sociable, trustworthy and intelligent, compared to when you aren’t smiling. So whether you’re at a party, in a job interview or simply walking down the street, the fact that you’re smiling will work to your advantage.
Being unhappy with your smile usually means you don’t do it very often – which means you aren’t reaping the benefits outlined above. People who avoid smiling usually do so because they are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. When this happens people fall out of the habit of smiling or they do a closed-lip grin, which comes across as awkward or not genuine.
