Meet the Doctors


Dr. Garner was born in North Ogden, UT and completed his elementary education within that community. He graduated from Weber High School, and then went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Weber State College. He then attended dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, NE, receiving his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree. Upon returning to Utah, Dr. Garner began his practice in downtown Ogden, UT in 1987. He built the current Mountain Springs Dental Building in 2009.

In 1982, Dr. Garner married LoriAnn Wood and they have five wonderful children and 15 grandchildren. He enjoys reading, water/snow skiing, boating, movies, travel, and spending time with his family.

He is an Invisalign provider and recently certified as a Vivos sleep medicine provider.

He loves helping his patients to feel better, breathe easier and smile brighter.


As a Weber High graduate and a Weber State Alumnus, Dr. Cook is no stranger to North Ogden. Dr. Cook graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry, a member of the Texas A&M Health Science Center System, located in Dallas, Texas, where he received his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree, and for 12 years, he and his North Ogden bride, Teresa, lived in Texas.

Dr. Cook loves serving his community with choices and great care. He is reminded that he is a guest of his patient’s mouth – there to serve and do no harm. He also believes there have to be at least 2 choices for his patients to choose from. Whether you need an implant, a bridge, a sealant, or a reminder to floss his interest is in what will help each patient the most. Sometimes that means waiting several months while a patient quits smoking before they get their new smile. Other times he’ll burn the midnight oil to finish a smile before a wedding. One of his favorite memories was getting to know a police officer in the community, then meeting his girlfriend, all while working on a full smile rehabilitation. He was honored when several months after finishing, they invited him to their wedding and rejoiced in the comfort and healthy smile the groom shared with all who came.

Discovering Dr. Garner and Mountain Springs Dental was the icing on the “sugar-free” cake. Both he and Dr. Garner complement each other. “It’s like a right and a left hand – we just fit”, remarked Dr. Cook, and he says of Dr. Garner, “I love his easy-going, friendly chairside manner. It’s so good to be able to sit down with him and consult on a complicated case and enjoy his experience and gentle approach.”
