Ellensburg native and University of Washington alumnus Dr. Cole is a 1979 graduate of the Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago. The call of the Northwest lured him back, however, so in 1980, he started a family practice here in Ellensburg where he has served Kittitas Valley patients ever since.
Dr. Cole regularly updates our practice with the latest dental technologies and materials to enhance our patients’ treatment and care. He continually expands his knowledge and polishes his clinical skills through lectures, workshops, and other dental education programs. His many professional memberships also keep him abreast of the newest dental developments. He has two main 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, 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 all of 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.
