Residents of 78705 and surrounding areas learn the dangers of mercury from biological dentist Dr. Griffin Cole

Families in the Austin, Texas area have seemingly endless options when it comes to choosing a dental team to handle their various oral health needs. Dr. Griffin Cole is a distinctive dentist in his commitment to biological care, which considers how oral health and dentistry affect the body as a whole.

In Dr. Cole's practice, patients can expect to see some of the latest technologies and dental materials, but what really stands out is the level of patient care. Appointment times are set based on the needs of each individual patient, not a need for high volume. Through personalized care, Dr. Cole gives patients from 78705 and surrounding areas the attention they need for true oral health. If you are looking for a dentist to care for your smile, you have come to the right place.

An integral part of patient care to a biological dentist is the discernment in choosing dental materials. Though there are certain materials that may be more suitable for one person than another, the one that a biological dentist avoids in every situation is mercury.

Mercury is found in dental amalgam, a material that has been commonly used to repair cavities for more than a century. Mercury seeps from every amalgam filling, contacting oral tissues. Even more alarming, mercury escapes amalgam in vapor form, which means this unhealthy substance is inhaled and absorbed, reaching various organs in the body. In research studies, mercury has been linked to several concerning health conditions that affect the nervous system and the brain. Men and women with many amalgam fillings have reported unpleasant symptoms such as inability to concentrate or speak clearly, impaired coordination, and more. Mercury is classified as a neurotoxin, which means it is poisonous to the human body, specifically the nervous system.

Dr. Cole believes in protecting his patients' overall health and wellbeing. In his practice, patients are treated with non-metal alternatives such as composite resin or porcelain. Additionally, patients who want to reduce their risk of mercury toxicity can discuss the removal of existing amalgam fillings using the safest protocol available.

A change in oral health can have a significant, positive impact on quality of life. Contact our office at (512) 410-6063.

    The Best Dentist and an overall great guy!

    My wife and I found Griffin on the internet while we were looking for a Mercury Free dentist in Austin. I'm not sure if he's the only one or not, but he's the only one for us from now on. Even my wife, who absolutely hates Dr.'s offices and dentist offices, was extremely comfortable and enjoyed her visit there. No matter what questions you ask, Griffin will provide you with educated, intelligent answers to make sure YOU understand what he's doing.

    They do not take insurance, but I'd rather pay myself and not have toxic poisons (flouride & mercury) "sold" to me and put in my mouth. Most people will spend hundreds of dollars at the bars and restaurants each month, yet won't spend a dime on their own health.

    Possibly the best dentist in Austin!

    Dr. Cole is one of the best dentists in Austin if you are concerned with keeping your teeth healthy and your body free from dangerous dental toxins--esp. mercury. My husband has been going to Dr. Cole for 15 years, and I've been going for almost 10. The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful. Dr. Cole himself is generous with his time, answering all questions thoroughly. His dental work is awesome. His dental hygienist, Cindy, is also world-class! Gentle, and thorough. My husband and I are both chemically-sensitive, and his office is a safe place for us.

    AWESOME

    Dr. Cole is a great dentist who is very caring; called me after I had a few fillings done to see how I was doing. He also specializes in biological dentistry (non-mercury amalgams, biocompatible focus) so he's concerned with total health. The office is nice and so are the staff. He's top-notch!

    PROS: biological dentistry, whole health, excellent care

    CONS: none

    Having experienced several dentists in my life - to include military dentists; or, were they trainees?? In any event, it is very difficult to overstate when offering praise for Griffin Cole's work, his staff. He is a journeyman...a master, really. An excellent staff and the highest standard of care are immediate impressions one can expect upon their first visit. Furthermore, those standards are maintained consistently over time, they don't fade. I believe I can say as much about his excellent care since my wife and I have been going for several years.

    My personal experience has been that I do not dread the trip to the dentist's office, quite the contrary. Definitely a 5 star experience....every time.

    We have been going to Griffin for several years now and are very happy. He has a mercury free office, knows about alternative health solutions and is anti-fluoride. He also uses digital x-rays which have 90% less radiation. Not cheap, but worth it.

    Dr. Cole and his staff, especially Deborah, have provided our whole family with conscientious, pro-active, caring treatment for over ten years. Our family ranges in age from 2-92, and they each receive specialized care with the safest substances - no mercury! Highly recommended - especially if you need cosmetic or restorative work and want them to look genuinely real.

    After you visit Griffin Cole, you wish that all your other medical appointments were like this. He's something like the character of Wayne Jarvis on Arrested Development - PROFESSIONAL. He's so professional it's almost funny. Before you go sit in "the chair" you sit down in a nice office and talk about what's going on. He listens and gets all the details and lays out what needs to be done. Then he does it, and he's always PROFESSIONAL. Seriously Great dentist. If you are having complicated or "scary" work done, he is especially the guy you want to see.

    Dr Cole is the best dentist my wife and I have ever been to. He has helped her deal with issues from titanium implants (she was allergic to titanium and no one tested her prior to installing the implants - very bad decision for us). He just helped me with a chipped tooth that probably needs a root canal. And he and his staff have been excellent to work with for the past 6 years.

    Dr. Cole is a beacon of light in a sea of Austin dentists- one of the few in town that values holistic dentistry over the other kind that seems content to shove dangerous chemicals in your mouth, and then charge you for it. I went to Dr. Cole's office this week after a small composite filling fell out of one of my tooth this past month. It wasn't a big hole that was left behind, but I am sensitive to radiation and wary of going to a dentist that requires a full examination before they will even touch your teeth. If you call around, most dentists will not even treat you unless you fork out for several hundreds of dollars worth of dangerous x-rays---something I am not a huge fan of. I literally couldn't schedule with a few places because they required this.
