Tonya Mims Baker
My name is Tonya Mims Baker. I am a native of Edgefield. I have been a dental assistant for 12 years. I spent most of my time working in Augusta, GA and was thrilled when the opportunity presented itself for me to be able to work in my hometown. It is a blessing for me to be able to help hometown folks with their dental health. I guess one of the advantages of growing up in a small town is that you feel you know everyone and you want them treated like family. I have been married to my husband Doug for 18 years. We have 3 beautiful children- Jordan 11 years old, Eli 10 years old, Leah - 8 years old. They keep us very busy with ball, scouting, dance, and piano. When we are not busy with their activities we enjoy spending time outside with each other and being with our friends and family.


Jenny Jackson
Jenny Jackson is a native of Charleston, South Carolina.  She and her husband Randy moved to Edgefield two years ago to lead the youth ministry at Antioch Baptist Church.  Jenny has a Bachelor's Degree in Youth Ministry and a Master's of Church Music Degree and enjoys using those skills at her church.  Jenny loves working with people and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work closely with the people in Edgefield at Dr. Cook's office. Jenny and Randy have about 30 kids (at Antioch!) and one four-legged child named Spike.  The Jacksons enjoy worshipping together, hanging out with friends, going to the movies, and spending time with Spike.  They feel very blessed to be here in Edgefield
