Dr. Benjamin Coon, D.D.S.
Reestablishing roots that run deep in the Roaring Fork Valley with a long-term aspiration to build his permanent practice amid family, lifelong friends and associates, Dr. Benjamin Coon and his wife Erica Brucker Coon relocated from Rapid City, South Dakota in 2010 to purchase Glenwood Meadows Dental. While in South Dakota, Dr. Coon served as General Dentist and Dental Officer for the United States Air Force at Ellsworth Air Force Base.
A graduate of the University of Colorado at Denver School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Coon received a scholarship upon graduation with the United States Air Force Health Profession Scholarship Program and began his military service in 2005. During his service in the Air Force, he completed his Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Certificate at the David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base in Solano, California. While at David Grant Medical Center he became a credentialed provider in several dental sub-specialties including intravenous sedation, limited orthodontics, endodontics, periodontal surgery, and advanced exodontia. He brings this comprehensive and advanced training and experience with him to his permanent practice at Glenwood Meadows Dental.
He believes excellence in dentistry begins with a careful co-diagnosis and treatment plan to establish mutual patient-provider goals. In fact, consultations to assess treatment needs and plans are complimentary, and include a comprehensive estimate for services. Communication and a long-term patient relationship are important to Dr. Coon and the team at Glenwood Meadows Dental. Collaboratively, Glenwood Meadows Dental and Dr. Coon help patients realize an investment in dental health pays dividends for a lifetime.
Dr. Coon and his team are caring, skilled professionals, dedicated to simplifying what is often a complicated and confusing area of health care. He works to assure that all his patients are informed and knowledgeable about their dental health care-- from treatment plans and services-- to insurance coverage.
