About Us

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!

Dr. Brandon Kofford DMD, MS, FACP

Dr. KoffordHello, my name is Brandon Kofford.  I grew up in Midvale, UT until I was 19.  After that, the world completely opened up to me!  I lived in Maceio, Brazil for 2 years, teaching the wonderful people of that part of the world principles of a happy life.  I learned to love the Portuguese language as well as the Brazilian people.  Upon my return, I resumed my University studies at Brigham Young University.  At Brigham Young I had two objectives:

  • Find a beautiful, talented, kind, loving, thoughtful, intelligent, incredible woman to be my eternal companion.
  • Satisfy all pre-requisites for Dental School and get accepted to a clinically-oriented program.

(I succeeded on both objectives!)
Marian, (the most beautiful, talented, kind, loving, thoughtful, intelligent and incredible woman in the world) and I got married in May 2004 and shortly after moved out to Cleveland, OH so I could begin my career in (and love affair with) DENTISTRY.

Dental school, among many things, was extremely EXPENSIVE, and as a young married couple anxious to start a family, Marian and I decided to accept a US Air Force Scholarship for dental school.  It turned out to be an extraordinary decision!   After dental school, the Air Force accepted me into their prestigious Prosthodontics residency program.  I learned from some of the most dedicated and intelligent clinician's I have ever known.  Col Mattie as my program director and his team of staff members: Col Taylor, Col Longo, Col Guillory, Col DeFreest, Col Phoenix, Col Sutton, Col Villalobos, etc. were an incredible team.  (And just to point out the obvious, that's a lot of Colonels!) Those mentors prepared me well to present my knowledge and training to the American Board of Prosthodontists.  I became a Board Certified Prosthodontist in December of 2011, a "crowning" achievement in my career!

After successfully completing my residency program, and earning my Masters of Science degree from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio, the Air Force sent me and my young family (by then 4 children) to RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, England.    Again, what an incredible opportunity!  For 3 years I served as the Director of Prosthodontics for a military population in excess of 30,000 active duty and their dependents, mentoring 29 clinicians, from Captains to Cols, in all things Prosthodontics, and I served as the Base Dental Laboratory Flight Commander, overseeing and directing the operations of  a 10 man dental laboratory.  Life was busy but good in England.  Leaving the Air Force was not an easy thing to do, but the right decision for a family with 6 young children.  Marian and I decided that anywhere we moved to in the states would be closer to our families than where we were in England, so we looked for the best place to raise our 6 children.  Can it get any better than Apex/Cary, NC?!  We didn't think so, and now here we are!  We absolutely love living here in Apex and working in Cary.  I was thrilled when Dr. Karen Bruggers invited me to take stewardship over the practice that she had worked so diligently to establish as a center for advanced prosthodontic treatment in the Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Raleigh and Garner areas.  It is with humility and gratitude that I dedicate my service and my training to honoring Dr. Bruggers' legacy in Cary Prosthodontics.

Our Culture

"Find the Fun"

One thing every visitor to Cary Prosthodontics notices immediately is that our team really looks like they have fun and enjoy their work.

My mom raised me on "Mary Poppins" and often quoted her before or during a project that she needed me to do:
"In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.  [When] You find the fun, 'SNAP,' the job's a game.  And every task you undertake becomes a piece of cake. . ."

"The Happiness Advantage"

Shawn Achor gives a very humorous and concise explanation for the power of positivity as well as 5 recommendations for becoming a positive thinker.

At Cary Prosthodontics, we have built our culture around the principles outlined in this video clip.

"Problem Solvers"

There are so many different ways to restore and optimize a dentition, our team at Cary Prosthodontics work to find the best solution for each individual and their budget.

We feel a great urgency in providing solutions for our patients not unlike what the Apollo 13 support team problem solvers felt as demonstrated in this video.
