Our Philosophy

Our dental practice has a simple philosophy that has kept our patients nearby happy, healthy, and smiling for nearly 25 years: we treat you the way we would want to be treated ourselves. When you come to see us, you’ll have access to a variety of treatments you’d expect from a large, corporate practice, but from a small, friendly, and locally-owned one. From scheduled preventive care to last-minute emergency dentistry, with us, you won’t ever have to compromise when it comes to your smile.

“Fantastic dental experience. Excellent facility and staff is like family. I've been in the dental industry for 15yrs and we drive down from Dallas and are honored to be patients of such a great practice. He's got a great team and you'll never need to find another Dentist again.”

Barret S., Waco, TX

“Dr. Cofer and his staff were absolutely amazing during my experience this week. I have always been terrified of the dentist and had multiple bad experiences but I'll no doubt use Dr. Cofer for my family from here on out!”

Cassie C., McGregor, TX

“This place is amazing. I had not been to the dentist in 6-8 years and needed lots of dental work done. The staff are great here. They all make you feel at home and help you stay at ease through the whole process. I recommend Dr. Cofer and his amazing staff. They will take great care of you!”

1-Day Crowns
Custom Results, Quickly

Have you avoided getting your severely decayed or broken tooth fixed because a dentist told you it would take multiple visits? At our practice, we believe that even the highest-quality dentistry should also be convenient, so that is why we’re happy to quickly repair teeth using 1-day crowns with CEREC. With this system, we can design, mill, and place a completely custom-made all-porcelain dental crown in just one visit, all without the need for a messy, uncomfortable dental impression or outside dental lab.

Dental Implants
Replace Missing Teeth

Dental implants are widely considered the most natural-looking and durable tooth replacement solution available today, and at Premier Family Dental, we can use them to rebuild your smile to last a lifetime. Unlike many other practices, we can handle the entire process from start to finish, so you won’t have to deal with the hassle of visiting an outside specialist or the stress of an unexpected invoice. With us, we’ll make sure the entire process is always simple, predictable, and delivers beautiful results.
