We Hope You Take The Time to Learn About Dr. Harwell and Dr. Cook
I attended Vanderbilt University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in mathematics. My Doctor of Dental Surgery degree was awarded from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. After graduation, I did my orthodontic residency at the University of Texas – Houston Dental Branch, where I earned a Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, as well as a Master of Science degree.
Meet Dr. Anthony Harwell
Hi, Dr. Anthony Harwell here! Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about myself. I was raised in Amarillo and graduated from Amarillo High School in 1988. My journey with orthodontics began at a very young age, helping out in my father’s orthodontics practice as a second-grader. I ended up taking over my father’s practice after 25 years of working side by side as orthodontists. I am proud to keep my father’s kindhearted and dedicated patient care philosophy alive at Harwell & Cook Orthodontics.
I attended the University of Oklahoma for undergrad where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry. I then went on to the University of Oklahoma’s College of Dentistry to obtain my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and remained in Oklahoma for my orthodontic residency where I received a Master of Science degree and Certificate of Orthodontics in 2014.
Meet Dr. Tanner Cook
Hi, Dr. Cook here! Thank you so much for taking the time to read about who I am. I grew up in the small town of Meers, OK. I was drawn to orthodontics because of the field’s unique focus on helping people become their best selves and its inspiring mix of science and art. I also wanted to specialize in treating the demographic of adolescents to make a positive impact on their lives. I joined Harwell & Cook Orthodontics in 2014 because of the excellent professional chemistry he felt with Dr. Harwell and our shared desire to put patients first and help them smile out loud, blossom, and gain the confidence to show their personalities.
