Barry L. Cole, DDS, a Fellow of the American Orthodontic Society

Dentist in Marshfield, WI
Prairie Run Dental, SC

Dr. Cole graduated from University of Colorado School of Dentistry in 2000.  Upon graduation, he moved back to his wife’s hometown to practice general dentistry with a focus on orthodontics.  Before pursuing a career in dentistry, Dr. Cole was a mechanical engineer on the Atlas/Centaur rocket for Lockheed Martin.  This project worked to launch satellites into space for commercial industries, such as DISH Network.

On a more personal note, Dr. Cole and his wife Amy have three grown sons.  The oldest is living in Austin, Texas, his second son lives in Minneapolis and the youngest lives in Germany. In his free time, Dr. Cole enjoys home brewing beer, traveling, and spending time at his cabin with family and friends.

Currently, Dr. Cole is working hard to achieve his Diplomate Status with the American Orthodontic Society (AOS). This is the highest level of achievement for a general dentist practicing orthodontics within the AOS.  To achieve this honor, he must complete 500 hours of orthodontic continuing education, pass a written exam and defend 10 cases to the AOS Board. He looks forward to achieving this status in 2020.

Dr. Cole attributes the success of Prairie Run Dental to his highly effective and skilled team and his loyal patients.  He values their trust and understands the importance of developing a caring relationship between patient and provider.  He strives to educate patients of their dental needs and provides them with the tools to make informed decisions about their health!
