About Dr. Jonathan Cook DMD – Know Your Cosmetic Dentist in Fort Lauderdale

When I graduated from high school, I attended Florida State University. I knew I was going to live my life in Florida. I knew that at a young age, when I started visiting my uncle here. For me, just to get my foot in the door, I knew I needed to get residency in the state of Florida. The first step to that was just to become a student and then get a job here in the state of Florida.

Dr Jonathan CookI attended Florida State University from 1999 to 2003 where I was presented with membership in the National Collegiate Scholars Association. While I was at Florida State, I had multiple jobs in order to help pay for tuition, and also to claim residency. During this time I volunteered to assist Dr Travis Goss D.D.S. where I observed numerous dental procedures and learned basic dental terminology, equipment, and technology, giving me real world knowledge of the practice of the dentist. Then, when I graduated with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry at Florida State, I was admitted to Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2004.

Dr Jonathan Cook in JamaicaI attended Nova Southeastern University from 2004 to 2008 and graduated in the top 20% of my class with a 90% average. I was admitted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society for outstanding academic achievement and outstanding character. I also was awarded The Southern Academy of Prosthodontics Award and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Award. No other graduating senior was awarded those two awards. The top 10% of the class was awarded the Honor Society Award. While attending Nova Southeastern University, I was a member of the American Student Dental Association.

During the four years, my junior year and then senior year, I was fortunate enough to be selected to go on a medical mission in Jamaica, which not only was an honor for me, but also gave me an opportunity to give back to those in need and also to further my skills and knowledge of dentistry by performing on patients in Jamaica. As one of twenty dental students specially selected for this medical mission, I preformed over 100 surgical and non-surgical dental extractions for the under served population of Jamaica, for each of two consecutive years. The second year I was the Trip Group Leader and was responsible for ordering, organizing and consolidating dental supplies in order to prepare for the trip.

I also assisted and instructed third year students on proper extraction techniques, injection techniques, and overall patient care. I also participated in the “Give Kids A Smile” program in 2007, volunteering as student dentist to provide dentistry to disadvantaged children.

Dr Jonathan Cook in JamaicaI count myself lucky to have been mentored by Dr. Michael Radu, he’s in Boca Raton, Florida. I met him in my junior year of dentistry and he kind of took me under his wing. I would go to his office when I wasn’t in school and when I wasn’t studying. I would go to his office and watch him perform certain procedures, usually more elaborate, complex reconstructive procedures, because that’s what I was most interested in.

Also, Dr. Nilo Hernandez , who I now have the pleasure of working with. He works in my office. He and I work hand in hand. I met him because my partner and I were interested in his practice, so we purchased his practice and kind of funneled him into our existing practice. So, we’ve been working together for some time now and he’s just fantastic. He’s a great mentor.

Then, once I graduated I stayed here in South Florida and I started practicing. I practiced up in Tamarac, Florida for a year, and then I moved down to Coral Gables where I opened a practice. I am currently a member of the American Dental Education Association as well as the South Florida District Dental Association.

As part of my continuing education, I have been awarded a Fellowship by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Have undergone Nitrous Gas Conscious Sedation Training, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, a Certified Invisalign Provider, and have countless hours of continuing education in Soft Tissue Management and Implant Dentistry courses. Always keeping up with current technology and techniques to offer my patients the best treatment possible.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for my smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.


We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
