About Dr. Cole
Dr. Cole has devoted his dental career to practicing healthy, holistic, non-invasive, biocompatible dentistry. He is also a proponent of making the dental office occupationally safe as possible regarding mercury and he strives to protect the patient, the staff, and the environment from excessive and unnecessary exposure to mercury at the dental office.
I was born in Abilene, Texas in 1948. I spent my elementary school years in the west Texas town of Snyder. That is why I sound a little country. We moved to Fort Worth, Texas when I was in the sixth grade. Other than college in Waco, National Guard active duty in Fort Knox, Kentucky and Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, I’ve lived in Fort Worth ever since.
I found a sweet Arkansas farmer’s daughter in Dallas and we married 32 years ago. My wife Pat was a biologist, got her Master’s in Civil Engineering, did the majority of the child rearing, mentoring and taxi duty and is now a massage therapist and health coach.
Pat has a disarming smile, but a strong spirit. It’s a good thing. It took both of us and Divine Grace to raise what have turned out to be some extraordinary kids. Audrey is 27, married and utilizing her MBA in the recruiting business. South (for Southworth) is 24 and graduated with a degree in architecture. He is now in Dallas and works as a construction engineer for Linbeck.
And that is my personal life: my family. I love the Lord. I love my job. I genuinely enjoy life. I exercise to stay fit and on rare occasion play some golf, go SCUBA diving, ride horses and do a little woodcarving.
Our fantastic staff is made up of highly-trained, dedicated, caring and motivated professionals who work together as a unique team to bring you the highest quality holistic dental treatment in a healthy, caring, and supportive setting.
We would be honored to add you to our list of satisfied patients and encourage you to visit Our Office Website to learn more about our office and the many services and treatments we offer. We want to thank you for considering our office for all of your dental needs.

NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that amalgam/silver fillings not only release toxic mercury vapor - but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling - will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! It also tells you what you can do about it. Click Here to watch this amazing video demonstration - and don’t forget to tell your friends and family!
