Dr Cooley graduated from Brigham Young University- Idaho with a bachelor’s in Biology and Neuroscience. He received his DMD at UNLV School of Medicine in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Cooley family reunions are chalked full of dazzling smiles considering his father is an orthodontist, his sister practices general dentistry and both of his grandpas were dentists.
Dr Cooley grew up in Redding, California where he enjoyed over 300 days of sunshine a year and took advantage of each one. His excitement for the outdoors has inspired him from a young age to master mountain biking as a teenager and rock climbing while living in Las Vegas. Moving to Boise has only increased his repertoire of adventure, most recently he’s begun surfing the Boise River. Who would have thought that this Californian spends more time on a surfboard before starting his workday here in Meridian, than he ever did on the coastline?
While attending school in Eastern Idaho Dr Cooley met his wife, Laurel who introduced him to her hometown of Boise. They knew this was where they wanted to raise their family together. Their son Ashton is two years old and has a delightful infatuation with riding lawn mowers, he can hardly contain himself when someone is cutting the lawn! The Cooley crew of three also love spending their time paddle boarding and anything else that gets them out on the water.
Dr Cooley wants your dental care to help you! His attention to medical history, lifestyle needs, and personal preferences contributes to solutions that work. Above all else, he says he loves what he does because he enjoys helping people.
FUN FACT: Dr Cooley was introduced to his wife by a stranger seated next to him on a snowy chairlift, which turned into a blind date, which turned into happily ever after!
