Tessa C.

Tessa Cook, Durham dentist office team member

A third-generation Durham native, Tessa earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from the UNC School of Dentistry. She joined Dr. Blaylock’s practice in 2001 and has over 24 years of experience in inpatient care. Tessa takes her patients’ oral health very seriously, but that doesn’t prevent laughter from emanating from the room when she is treating a patient.

She loves getting to know her patients and catching up with them during their appointments. Outside of the office, Tessa enjoys spending time with her young adult children, grilling out with family and friends, and golfing with her mom.

Robin K.

Robin, our Patient Experience Coordinator, is a Durham native and graduated from the UNC Dental Assisting Program in 1983 as a Certified Dental Assistant. She has worked in dentistry for almost 40 years in both general and orthodontic practices and began working with Dr. Blaylock and his team in 2014. Robin is proud of the quality of care our patients receive.

She has been married to Rod for 36 years and they have a daughter, Caitlin, and son-in-law, Bradley. She loves being “Bobbie” to her grandchildren, Lillie and Callum. Robin is very active in the Women’s and Outdoor Ministries at her church and enjoys pulling for the NC State Wolfpack.

She loves meeting our patients, creating our social media content, and is ready to help you with your scheduling, financial, and insurance needs.
