Dr. Michael Cole
Ellensburg native and University of Washington alumnus, Dr. Cole is a 1979 graduate of Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago. The call of the Northwest lured him back, and in 1980 he started a family practice in Ellensburg, where he has served Kittitas Valley patients ever since.
Dr. Cole regularly updates his practice with the dental technologies and materials to enhance his patients’ treatment and care. He and his dental team continually expand their knowledge and polish their clinical skills through lectures, workshops, and other dental education programs. His many professional memberships also keep him abreast of new dental developments. He has two beliefs driving his passion for continuing education: Constant and Never-Ending Improvement (CANI) and “You don’t know what you don’t know.” He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, the Yakima Dental Society, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics, and the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health.
The fun-loving Dr. Cole enjoys sharing conversation or a good joke with his patients. When he’s not in the office, he and Robin—his wife, best friend, companion, and competitor—keep busy with outdoor activities including golf, cycling, tennis, and yard projects.
Dr. Cole is a graduate of Washington State University and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.
