Taking time off and building a dental practice is on the lists for two of CU School of Dental Medicine’s periodontics graduates. The two students earned their certificates in Periodontics and Masters of Science in Dentistry in June.


Graduate Laurence Eggart, DMD, MSD—plans on commemorating the milestone by hiking the western half of the country and celebrating with family and friends at his brother’s wedding. After that, he will move home to Pawley’s Island, South Carolina, and practice dentistry under his mentor, Jeanne Fourrier, DDS—at her private practice in Myrtle Beach. He also plans on applying for his specialty periodontics license in South Carolina.


For graduate Reece Cochran, DDS ’18, MSD—he will stay close to home in Colorado Springs. Cochran opened his brick-and-mortar private periodontics office in Pueblo. His five-chair office will support the southern Colorado region for any surgical, dental work. He has four team members and already has plans to expand his practice. When he isn’t working, he spends time with his family—his wife and one-year-old daughter. Cochran also enjoys camping and traveling.
