Clayton Cook was born and raised in Cache Valley, Utah, and comes from a large family – he is the 5th of 6 children. Growing up, Dr. Cook spent many hours in his father’s podiatry office cleaning rooms, stocking cupboards, and – when his dad wasn’t looking – playing with equipment. Consequently, Dr. Cook discovered his fascination with the medical world at a very young age.
Dr. Cook met his best friend, Kallee, now his wife, in 9th grade. After graduating from high school, he worked in the Dallas area for a short time and fell in love with Texas. He left Texas to serve a Christian mission in Hiroshima, Japan. Shortly after returning, he married his wife, and they’ve been married for 8 years and have 4 beautiful children.
Dr. Cook graduated from Utah State University, majoring in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Japanese. He attended dental school at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona.
In his spare time, Dr. Cook enjoys hiking, playing sports of all kinds, reading, challenging his wife to a game of scrabble, and giving his kids “Wild Buckin’ Bronco” rides in the family’s front room. He’s always wanted to make it back to Texas and is so excited to be in Fort Worth.
