We are excited for the upcoming arrival of our new doctor, Cree Kofford. He is eager to provide excellent care, and immerse himself in the community of Colorado Springs.
To the dental community of Colorado Springs,
I am so eager to join the Colorado Springs community, that I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself and my family. We are so excited by the opportunities to come and to join the incredible practice that Dr. Ron Thoman has built.
I was raised just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah in the city of Bountiful. My father runs a small business there, where I learned the importance of high-quality customer service, attention to detail, effective communication, and a passionate pursuit of excellence. These attributes benefitted me greatly as I attended Brigham Young University, served a two-year church mission to Mendoza, Argentina and subsequently completed my dental and specialty training. During my time in Argentina, I became fluent in Spanish, and have maintained my fluency throughout my career. While at BYU, I met and married my wife, Megan. Megan is the oldest daughter to a general dentist in Atlanta, Georgia. Following graduation from BYU, I attended the University of Louisville School of Dentistry and graduated in 2015. Upon graduation from dental school, my wife and I decided to stay in Louisville for medical school and oral surgery training. While in Louisville we welcomed our 4-year-old twin daughters, Bailey and Blair, and our 8-month-old son Boston. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing all sports and supporting BYU athletics. My training has prepared me well to offer a wide variety of services to your patients.
I enjoy performing all aspects of oral surgery, including dentoalveolar surgery, orthognathic surgery, trauma surgery, and dental implant surgery. During my time in Louisville, I helped implement a completely digital workflow for dental implantology. As a result, I have a skill and a passion for guided implant surgery and the implementation of technology to help provide your patients with the highest level of comfort and care. I am committed to being a valuable resource to you and your patients. I will be available, affordable, and ready to assist in any way that I know how. As the son in law to a dentist, I understand the importance of effective communication and having a specialist who will always be in your corner. I will make that a priority in my practice. I look forward to meeting you and begin working with you and your patients. I participate in most of the dental insurances offered in Colorado and am available day or night via call, text, or email.
