Dr. Brandon Kofford DMD, MS, FACP
Hello, 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.
