Cary Prosthodontics was founded in 1991 by Karen Bruggers, DDS. Dr. Bruggers completed her training in Prosthodontics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1988 after which she taught full time as a member of the dental school faculty for three years. 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, where she grew up, attended dental school and where her father, also a prosthodontist, served as an associate dean. Dr. Bruggers retired from private practice on May 15, 2017 and is a wealth of knowledge and experience for many budding restorative dentists!
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 in 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!
