General Dentistry

At the office of Andrew Cole DDS, we are pleased to provide patients of all ages with exceptional dental care in a friendly, welcoming environment.

As a general dentist in Chehalis, Dr. Cole's role is similar to that of your primary care physician because he manages your overall oral health needs. This includes preventive services that are the building blocks for a healthy smile and restorative procedures in case something goes wrong.

What Does General Dentistry Include?

Some of the services included in general dentistry are:

  • Semi-annual exams and cleanings
  • Digital x-rays as needed
  • Periodontal care
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Root canals
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Tooth extractions

Though he can treat a broad range of problems, there may be cases where Dr. Cole will refer you to a specialist to ensure you’re getting the most appropriate care. In this case, you can be confident that Dr. Cole will work closely with your specialist.

Prevention Saves Smiles

If you don’t like visiting a dentist, you’re not alone! Fortunately, there is a way to spend as little time as possible in the dental chair – prevention.

Our preventive services include dental cleanings and exams every six months. These appointments allow us to check on the state of your oral health and talk to you about any concerns you have. One of our hygienists will check for signs of gum disease and clean your teeth thoroughly.

You will also meet with Dr. Cole who will examine your mouth, take x-rays as needed, note any problems, and perform an oral cancer screening. If he finds issues that he needs to address, he will work with you to develop a treatment plan going forward that fits all your needs, including your budget.

Patient Education

Dr. Cole strongly knows from experience that patients who are informed and understand their dental needs tend to enjoy better oral health. It’s our job to help you get involved by using technology like digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. Both allow you to see in detail what is happening with your oral health and why you need treatment.

We always welcome and encourage your questions because they help us understand what matters to you and how we can help. If something is on your mind, we want to know about it!
