Outside the Practice@headingTag>
Outside of dentistry Dr. Cooper enjoys reading, traveling, volunteering, and running. She is a participant of Team In Training where she’s run several half-marathons and helped raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Dr. Cooper’s care philosophy is to teach patients how to care for their oral health in a comprehensive way. Dr. Cooper wants to take the dread out of dental appointments by not lecturing her patients on what they haven't done, but educating her patients on how they can do more. Dr. Cooper realizes sugar is a part of most people's diets, so her goal is to help her patients minimize exposure of sugar on their enamel. Dr. Cooper and her staff are dedicated to making dental care a lifestyle, not something her patients tend to twice a year.
