Dr. Suzanne Coco earned her degree as a dental laboratory technician in 1988, and became nationally board certified in ceramics in 1994. She served as a dental laboratory technician for eight years in the United States Air Force, where she was chosen ‘Dental Airman of the Year’ by her peers for this entire branch of military service.
Dr. Coco, while stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska, co-owned and operated a full-service dental laboratory, with her focus on dental ceramics (crowns and bridges) and dental implants. Her close relationships with her referring dentists and specialists, as well as her interest in the clinical side of dentistry, led her to return to Arkansas where she completed a Bachelor of Science Degree at Williams Baptist College in 2001.
She then attended the University of Tennessee, Memphis, Health Science Center and graduated in 2005. In 2008, she received both a Prosthodontic degree and a Master of Dental Science degree from the University of Tennessee, Memphis, Health Science Center. Upon graduating, Dr. Coco joined Dr. Hart in a partnership in Little Rock, Arkansas, as well as served as a faculty member of Prosthodontics at the University of Tennessee in Memphis.
Dr. Coco and Dr. Hart continue their relationship with the University of Tennessee Prosthodontic residency program training and mentoring residents in full-mouth reconstructions using crowns and bridges, as well as dental implant supported prosthetics.
In her downtime, Dr. Coco likes to enjoy quality time with her husband, son, granddaughter, and all of her animals in her own little slice of heaven in the country. Along with her husband, Chris, Dr. Coco lives at home with her four dogs, five chickens, and a ferret. Some hobbies of hers include painting, making soaps and candles, and taking long walks on her land, enjoying the sounds of nature. A good book is also never far from Dr. Coco's reach.
