Prevention is the key to good oral health, and we make sure that every patient understands how to care for their teeth themselves between their dental checkups.
We are an Austin dental practice that seeks to improve and sustain the health of our patients. We offer the very best in preventive care, as well as restorative and cosmetic care. General dentistry in our office, however, goes beyond standard x-rays and cleanings. Our patients benefit from our whole body integrative approach, whereby we offer true solutions versus traditional symptom-only treatment.
Dental visits should not be reserved only for times when there is a pressing need. Preventive care is ideal, keeping you and your family from experiencing the discomfort and cost of problems such as cavities, infection, or gum disease. Dr. Cole’s hygienists provide the rare combination of exquisite skill coupled with a gentle touch. Our office uses only state-of-the-art technology to examine and treat all areas of the oral structure.
While most dental offices promote “twice a year cleanings,” we let the health of the individual dictate how often to return for maintenance care. Our goal has always been to teach our patients how to properly care for themselves. Of course, this kind of practitioner-patient relationship can only happen after completing a comprehensive examination and all pressing treatment first. “Check-ups” are important and do allow us to become better acquainted with our patients and their oral health, but each person receives care tailored precisely to his or her needs and may not require yearly examinations.
General dental care includes restorative treatments like fillings, inlays, onlays, crowns, and other services. Dr. Cole has never placed amalgam fillings and he is known as one of the first mercury-free dentists in Central Texas. Our practice follows the strict protocols of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, the IAOMT, for which Dr. Cole has authored several programs and currently serves as President. In addition, Dr. Cole works closely with other healthcare practitioners (physicians, naturopaths, chiropractors, craniosacral therapists, and acupuncturists to name a few) to help patients in follow-up detoxification treatments. Dr. Cole has developed strong relationships with very skilled healthcare providers over the past two decades, and has thousands of very happy, healthy patients to show for it.
Working with our biological dental team, general dental care really takes on new meaning. Contact our office today to discover the difference.
