Born in Abilene, Texas Dr. Cole spent his elementary school years in the west Texas town of Snyder. His family moved to Fort Worth, Texas when he was in the sixth grade. Other than college at Baylor University in Waco, National Guard active duty in Fort Knox, Kentucky and Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, he has lived in Fort Worth ever since.
Dr. Cole's wife and partner since 1975, Pat B., also a Baylor graduate, works in the office as a massage therapist, seeing patients who need relief from head and neck pain. She is trained in cranio-sacral techniques as well as many other modalities.
The Cole's have had the great joy to see their two children, Audrey and South, grow up into extraordinary young adults. They feel blessed by their presence in Fort Worth and even more so with four dear grandchildren. Dr. and Mrs. Cole attend Christ Chapel Bible Church in Fort Worth where they are active in a community group and Bible studies.

He is passionate about reading, studying and attending workshops to continually learn more about natural healthcare and new technologies. Dr. Cole is active in the holistic healthcare scene and frequently speaks to groups in the community about dental awareness from the holistic perspective.
Dr. Cole practices what he preaches! His favorite hobby is training with kettle bells to stay fit, and as often as possible run on the Trinity River trails that meander throughout Fort Worth.
