About Ashley Bledsoe Cook

A born and raised Oklahoma girl, Ashley Bledsoe Cook is a 2003 graduate of Altus High School. During her time at Altus High, she discovered her interest in the human body while taking an anatomy and physiology class. However, Dr. Cook did not decide she wanted to pursue a career in dentistry until just prior to obtaining her degree in Applied Science from Western Oklahoma State College in 2005. Ashley went on to Southwestern Oklahoma State University to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. Following the accomplishment of completing her Bachelor's degree, Dr. Cook had the opportunity to work as a dental assistant for a couple years before attending the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry from 2010 to 2014. During her experience as a dental assistant, Dr. Cook felt fortunate to have been given this time to have hands-on learning as well as direct observation of the importance of a fully functioning, competent staff. From her senior year in high school throughout her senior year in her undergraduate studies, Dr. Cook was involved in the Miss America Organization holding three different local pageant titles during this time. Throughout her participation in these pageants, Ashley was give the opportunity to become integrated into her community via her platform which she called "Save Your Smile". The platform allowed her to speak with audiences of all ages at various schools, community clubs and organizations across the state about the necessity of continual dental maintenance as a part of every individual's holistic health.

Due to her fifteen year plus span of involvement in discussing the importance of proper dental care, Dr. Cook is a firm believer in patient education. She truly feels that it is not a safe or fair practice to assume the patient understands their own dental status including but not limited to, each patient's individual treatment needs, proper hygiene techniques and the oral cavity diseases as well as the processes of those diseases. Dr. Cook's passion for dentistry and education has led her back to the College of Dentistry where she holds the title of a Clinical Assistant Professor. Dr. Cook hopes to not only pass along her knowledge and enthusiasm to the students she works with but to also expand their appreciation for dentistry as an art, science and profession.
