Meet Our Dental Care Team

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.
