Letter from Dr. Cook


Dear Patients,

Over the past few years many of you have asked, “When will you retire?” One of my answers has always been, “When I find  the right person to take over the office.” Well, everything has quickly fallen into place and I have found the right people.

I have always taken pride in staying current with the latest techniques and trends in dentistry. Towards that end of putting continuing education at the forefront, I was long ago honored as a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. There are currently only two AGD Fellows in Milpitas. David Rafaee, DDS is being awarded that same Fellowship in the AGD this year and will continue to commit to staying current with the latest techniques and comfortable treatments.  We share the same treatment philosophies, eschewing unnecessary work that can’t be shown to you with our chairside digital x-rays or brand new intraoral cameras and panoramic x-ray.

As they say on TV, “But wait, there’s more…”

David’s wife Kathy Anasarinia, DDS, will also likely work some days in our office. Both are accomplished dentists near the middle of their careers, who may be able to take care of a greater range of your needs by working here together. David is a University of the Pacific graduate and Kathy graduated from University of California San Francisco Dental School. She also taught dental students at the University of Pacific in San Francisco for some time.

We are pleased that all four staff members, Linda, Shannyn, Susanne and Diana have agreed to continue on with David and Kathy helping make our family of patients comfortable during the transition. Lastly, I would like to thank you for the privilege of being your family dentist over the last thirty-five years, and the trust and confidence you have shown in our team. I have thoroughly enjoyed the banter, the time together, and the trust you have placed in me to provide your dental care. Moving forward, I am sure that David and Kathy and our dental team will continue to earn your trust and your referrals.

Michael Cook, DMD, FAGD
