As dental professionals, we know that excellent oral health contributes to your quality of life and well being. But we also understand that many people experience anxiety that makes it a challenge for them to follow through with necessary care.
That is why the team at Andrew Cole DDS is committed to ensuring that every moment of every visit is comfortable and stress-free. We take our time to develop trust with our patients because when you're comfortable enough to share what matters to you, we can better understand how we can help you achieve your goal of a healthier smile.
We involve you in your treatment so you have a clear understanding of why a particular procedure is necessary and what you can expect before, during, and after. Taking control of your own care helps eliminate the fear of the unknown, which is largely responsible for dental anxiety.
Please take a moment to get to know our outstanding team, then call our office at (360) 748-6624 to arrange an appointment.
