Dr. Brandon Kofford, DMD A Dedicated and Caring Prosthodontist
Dr. Kofford is a board-certified prosthodontist who specializes in restoring and replacing damaged or lost teeth. After graduating from Brigham Young University, he attended dental school with the help of a U.S. Air Force Scholarship and became a doctor of dental surgery (DDS). He was later accepted into the Air Force's prestigious prosthodontics residency program, where he received extensive training from talented clinicians.
In 2011, he presented his advanced prosthodontics training to the American Board of Prosthodontists and became board certified. After completing his residency, he earned his Masters of Science Degree at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center and moved to Suffolk, England, with his family to serve as the Director of Prosthodontics and Base Dental Laboratory Flight Commander. Together with his wife and six children, he eventually made the decision to move back to the United States and joined Dr. Karen Bruggers at her Cary, NC, dental practice.

A Dental Practice with over Two Decades of Tradition
Cary Prosthodontics was founded in 1991 by Karen Bruggers, DDS. After a very successful career treating patients in her full-time private practice, Dr. Bruggers decided to retire from private practice and return to teaching at Louisiana State University. In January 2016, Dr. Bruggers approached Dr. Brandon Kofford, who was also practicing prosthodontics in Cary, and asked him if he would be interested in assuming stewardship for her prosthodontics practice.
Dr. Kofford gave her an unequivocal "Yes!" and joined the practice in November 2016. Dr. Bruggers and Dr. Kofford are kindred spirits and share treatment philosophies and a common culture of compassion and excellence. We invite you to get to know who we are as a team, as well as who we are as individuals. After all, contrary to popular misconception, prosthodontists are people too!

Prosthodontists vs. General Dentists: What's the Difference?
The American Dental Association recognizes prosthodontics as an official specialty for dentists. While most dentists can provide basic preventative and general dental care, prosthodontists receive three years of additional education and are specially trained in solutions including dental crowns, dental bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays, dentures, and dental implant placement. Prosthodontists combine their training in cosmetics with a broader understanding of restorative dentistry to deliver highly aesthetic restorations that are customized to your individual smile. By visiting a board-certified prosthodontist, you are getting the best possible care for broken, damaged, or missing teeth.

"During my clinical time in dental school, I saw complex problems that only a Prosthodontist would know how to solve. It was then that I realized in order to treat any case to the highest quality and bring beauty to any smile, that I would need to become a Prosthodontist."
