About Same Day Dental

Dr. Charles Cole

A lot of people give me a puzzled look when I tell them I’ve wanted to be a dentist since I was nine years old. After all, introducing yourself as a dentist at a party can be a conversation killer. What many people don’t realize is the difference that’s made in a dentist’s surgery many times over every day. I know from years of watching people walk out of my practice, feeling a million times better than when they walked in, that what happens during the time my patients are with me impacts their lives forever. This is the reason I bounce out of bed every morning.

I am Charles Cole and I’ve made it my mission to understand what really matters to my patients. I listen to what is most important to you and then help you decide the best solution for your dental concerns. We all have busy schedules so I have designed an office that can treat most dental conditions in one day, many times the very same day! No more rescheduling, worries, just get it done and get on with eating, smiling and living.

Our Practice is happy to play a big part of our local community. We participate in community events and offer programs to local schools. One of our greatest joys is the smile makeover program we offer as a free gift to patients who are nominated by fellow patients.

As a young boy, I first came to Alaska with my father on an amazing fishing trip and I have been hooked ever since. I fell in love with the vastness, beauty and wildness of this amazing state. We fished for salmon and halibut, flew in bush planes and I truly realized this was heaven. I spent the next 20 years figuring out how to get back and 15 years ago moved my family to Alaska. It has been an experience of a lifetime! I have been flying planes since I was a teenager and being able to use an airplane to hunt, fish and explore with my kids is my greatest passion. I love seeing the beauty that surrounds us here and searching for new places to camp, hike and play! Life is never dull at our house with my sweetheart wife and six kids. I love being a dad and teaching my kids about the things I love and sharing with them the things they love. I marvel each day at how amazing and wonderful life is. I feel blessed to be able to experience so much of what Alaska has to offer.

I have been a dentist for over 20 years now and I truly love the profession. The part I love the most is being able to meet, work with and become friends with so many fantastic people. As a dentist, I have the chance every single day to make a positive difference in someone’s life! What a tremendous opportunity! I love having the chance to treat folks who may be in pain, anxious or nervous, and help them have a great dental experience. I also find it rewarding to be able to take something that is broken or damaged and to be able to reconstruct it in a fashion that is both beautiful and functional for many years to come. Often this can be done in just one appointment. In short, I love being a dentist.
