Team Directory


Becky King, Schedule and Financial Coordinator

Hi, I’m Becky. I joined the Cook Orthodontics, P.C. team in 2011. I enjoy assisting patients DSC_2195.jpgthrough all stages of ortho treatment and having the opportunity to see the end results, which is a wonderful smile! I love being in an office where I not only get to work with great people but also get to meet so many awesome new people like you!

In my time away from the office, I enjoy being a mother to my two beautiful daughters, Alexandra and Nicole. I also like to spend quality time with friends and family. Depending on the season, you can find me hanging out beside a pool or cooking s’mores over a campfire! I look forward to meeting you very soon!

Kelly Kain, Treatment Coordinator

DSC_2174.jpgHi! I’m Kelly and I will be taking care of you on your first visit to Cook Orthodontics, P.C. I have been a dental assistant for over 25 years and have worked in many specialties, including pediatrics, general dentistry and oral surgery. I joined the Cook Ortho team in 2009.

I really enjoy working with children as I have three of my own. In my "spare time" I can be found on any given sports field or court watching my kids play their sport of the season. I also enjoy reading, shopping, and traveling when time allows!

I look forward to meeting you at your first appointment!

Deanna Saucerman, Lab Coordinator and Clinical Assistant

DSC_2183.jpgHey everyone! Welcome to the Cook Ortho website! My name is Deanna. I am a clinical assistant as well as the lab coordinator. I make all the cool retainers that you receive at the end of your treatment. I have worked for Dr. Cook since 2008 and I love it! We have a great time and usually act pretty goofy!

I have two daughters that had orthodontic treatment with Dr. Cook, and their smiles are beautiful! I have been a dental assistant for over 24 years. (That’s probably longer than most of you have been alive!) I love what I do. It is so gratifying to see the changes our patients go through during orthodontic treatment.

When I’m not straightening your teeth, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I have two cats named Smokey and Chewy and a snake named Tiny. He’s really not very tiny though! I look forward to meeting you and hope to see you soon!

Rachel Sitterding, Clinical and Scheduling Assistant

DSC_2175.jpgHello! I’m Rachel. You will see me in the clinic as well as helping schedule your next visit. I enjoy the opportunity of getting to know all of our patients and seeing the positive changes in each smile! I graduated in 2006 from USI with an Associate of Science degree in Dental Assisting. I have been part of the Cook Ortho team since 2011.

Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors, following sports, shopping, traveling, and spending time with family. 


Ashley Kohute, Clinical Assistant

DSC_2192.jpgHi. I'm Ashley. I am so excited to be part of the Cook Ortho team! I graduated from USI's Dental Assisting program and began working for Cook Orthodontics, P.C. in May 2014. I work as a clinical assistant and most likely will put your braces on, take them off and help with all appointments in between. I look forward to meeting you!

A fun fact about me is that I was a cheerleader for the USI Men's basketball team. Stunting is my hobby! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends, shopping and being outdoors.

Beth Buechler, Clinical Assistant

DSC_2170.jpgHello. My name is Beth. I have been in orthodontics for over 10 years as a clinical assistant and have worked for Cook Orthodontics, P.C. since January 2015. I love adding humor to the office to help patients feel at ease and enjoy their visits. Laughter is the best medicine!

Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my two children, Amity and Corbin. Of course I can't leave out Braeley, our miniature Yorkie! I also love going to St. Louis Cardinal games and traveling anywhere south. If I am lucky to assist you in my chair, plan on a few corny jokes and a few laughs along with your appointment. After all, we have to show off that smile!!

Robin Cook, Office Manager

DSC_2197.jpgHi, I’m Robin! I have been working at Cook Orthodontics, P.C. since the opening in September 2003. I work in the business office behind the scenes, performing bookkeeping and payroll duties as well as coordinating our community involvement activities and local team sponsorships.

Currently, I work part-time for Dr. Cook so I can also spend quality time at home with my young son, Carson. In my free time, I like to travel, read, watch movies and spend time outdoors with my family!

I really enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere we offer at Cook Orthodontics, P.C. The people I work with are fabulous, and I’m lucky to have them as both co-workers and friends. Orthodontics is really the best job in the world. We have the opportunity to provide such a positive impact on people! And the best part . . . that smile lasts a lifetime!
