About Cole Merkley

“I work closely with my patients through every step of the process. It’s important to me that my patients understand the full range of what’s available so we can work together to get the best results – natural looking dentures that are comfortable, fit properly and allow for proper chewing function.”
Cole Merkley
Cole Merkley was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and has established successful practices in Calgary, Alberta, Brisbane, Australia and Victoria, B.C. He graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and has over 30 years of experience as a ‘smile stylist”. Cole is a member of the College of Denturists of British Columbia, a member of the Denturist Association of B.C. and has specialized training in the bio-functional prosthetic system (BPS), developed by Ivoclar. Cole also studied at the Swissedent Foundation in Los Angeles with Dr. John Frush, creator of the ‘dentogenics’ concept,

described as the art, practice and technique of creating the illusion of natural teeth with artificial dentures. It was at the Swissedent Foundation, that Cole discovered that he could use his artistic talent to create natural looking, precision dentures that are as individual as the patients he serves. Cole excels at aesthetic restoration (the art of making a denture look as natural as possible) and strives to give his patients the best smile possible for their unique features and personality. When Cole isn’t looking after his patients, he enjoys fitness, painting, travel, photography, reading, cooking and movies.

Cole is very professional and knew exactly what to do to make me feel comfortable. He took the time to explain everything to me and he always made himself available between appointments which I appreciated.


What I appreciated most about Cole was his careful attention to detail. He crafted the dentures himself and was involved at every stage of the process. His craftsmanship is impressive; I have gorgeous and completely natural looking teeth. I would highly recommend him.


I felt Cole knew exactly what he was doing so it was easy to trust him and his approach. He’s a perfectionist and it took a bit longer than I originally thought but it really paid off. He took the extra time to make sure my bite was absolutely perfect and he gave me back the smile I used to have so it was well worth it.

Cole has given me back my smile. He is the consummate professional - empathetic, precise and skilled. My dentures are perfect and feel and look totally natural. He has always told me exactly what to expect at each stage of our dealings. I have every confidence in his abilities. It was always a pleasure to hear Kim's cheery voice on the phone to remind me of an appointment. A great combination of talents.
