Dr. Thomas Cox
“Hello, I’m Dr. Cox. My passion for dentistry began when I invested in orthodontics for myself as a young adult. The confidence I gained by straightening and whitening my teeth was life-changing. I love providing my patients with whatever they need in order to smile without hesitation! The Treasure Valley has been my home since 1996 but I have lived in and around Idaho my whole life. My wife, 3 daughters and I enjoy spending our free time exploring our local mountains, desert, and rivers (unless of course someone has a soccer game, lacrosse match, or track meet!)”
Dr. Cox received his undergraduate degree from the University of Idaho. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. In 2004, Dr. Cox performed several smile makeovers as a part of the Major Makeovers team and was featured on the Treasure Valley’s 6 On Your Side News. He has over 300 hours of continuing education credits including two years of advanced training with Progressive Orthodontic Seminars.
Meet LisaKay, Marketing Director
“ Hi, I’m Dr. Cox’s wife. I am very proud of the type of dentistry we provide at BridgeTower Dental. Promoting my husband’s passion for patient care and the team with whom he works is both fun and personally fulfilling. It is easy to be passionate about dentistry when this team is dedicated to being the best they can be. In fact, it is almost as rewarding as being a mom to our three daughters, hiking with my Summit Sisters group, and white water rafting our Idaho rivers with our crazy family!”
LisaKay earned her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and her Masters degree in Business Administration from Idaho State University. She has worked with Dr. Cox for over 26 years. She also has experience working as a financial planner, stockbroker, pharmaceutical representative and marketing director for a local hospice PBM.
Meet Amanda, Registered Hygienist
“I was born and raised here in the Treasure Valley and love spending time with my husband, son and dogs. We enjoy hiking, whitewater rafting, and sitting around a campfire in the beautiful Idaho mountains. Being a dental hygienist fulfills my desire to educate patients, see first hand how a smile can impact someone’s life for the better and develop meaningful relationships. I enjoy attending education courses each year to be current and knowledgeable in the advancements in dentistry.”
Amanda graduated with honors from Idaho State University where she received a bachelors of science in dental hygiene and became board certified in 2014. She received recognition for her technical instrumentation and academic excellence in oral health and periodontal disease. Amanda is active in the Idaho Dental Hygiene Association and regularly volunteers in the community. She has over 40 hours of continuing education credits.
Meet Abby, Certified Dental Assistant
“I have enjoyed being part of the Bridgetower Dental Team since 2004! What I love about Bridgetower Dental is the compassion and excellent care we as a team deliver to our patients. My favorite part about my job is developing meaningful relationships with patients and watching their families grow. Assisting Dr. Cox chairside and treating patients isn’t my only duty, I also help behind the scenes with bookkeeping and some administrative duties. I enjoy being active and keeping busy, playing in the outdoors, or enjoying free time with my Labradors.”
Abby earned both her Bachelor’s degree in Health Care Management and EFDA (Expanded Functions Dental Assistant) Certified from Boise State University and is certified from the Dental Assisting National Board. She has over 145 hours of continuing education credits in dentistry.

When I am not working, my husband and I are usually camping, fishing, hunting, riding four wheelers, and searching for unique rocks.”
