THE TEAM


Dr Damian Cook, B.D.Sc.

Dr Damian Cook, B.D.Sc.
Dentist

Dr Cook graduated from the University of Queensland in 1979 and started what is now DC Dental in Highland Park in 1994. He was born and raised in Brisbane and spent many weekends on the Gold Coast throughout his childhood. After graduation, his first 14 years were spent as a Dental Officer in the Royal Australian Air Force. This career took him to many places in Australia as well as a two year posting to Malaysia.

Dr Cook enjoyed the Service life and gained a lot of valuable knowledge and experience throughout his military career. However, with a young family, the desire to return to SE Queensland was too great so he left the RAAF having attained the rank of Wing Commander and settled on the Gold Coast.

He has a particular interest in implant dentistry. Dr Cook is a member of the Australian Dental Association as well as the ADAQ Gold Coast Sub-branch Study Group and the Gold Coast Dental Study Group. He has also worked at the Griffith University Dental School supervising the Fourth and Fifth Year dental students’ patient treatments.

When not working, he likes to spend time with his family, follow the rugby and travel.
