Dr. Casey Kochevar
A Colorado native, Dr. Casey Kochevar has been providing dental care to Colorado residents since 2002. After growing up in Niwot, Colorado he went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from Colorado State University in Fort Collins and then earned his dental degree from The University of Colorado in Denver.
He received post-doctoral training providing dental care to the under served population of Fort Collins and the surrounding areas for four years. Upon getting married he decided to return home to open Hover Dental Group in Longmont in 2006. In addition to his private practice, he also commits a portion of his time to a public health clinic in Longmont, where he serves both adults and children in need of basic and affordable dental care.
When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Kochevar enjoys family time with his wife, Alexis, and their daughter, Riley, and son, Cole. He also enjoys several outdoor sports including skiing, mountain biking and golfing.
Dr. Kochevar is a proud member of the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, and served as the President of the Boulder Broomfield County Dental Society in 2011-2012. He has also served on the Boulder County Dental Coalition, whose mission is to promote preventive dentistry and education for pregnant mothers and infants. He regularly attends continuing education courses to advance his knowledge and learn about new technologies and treatments assuring that he can provide his patients with the high quality dental care they expect. He most recently has become a founding member of the Boulder Implant Study Club in coordination with Dr. Terry Nedbalski and Boulder Oral Surgery. This experience has allowed him to be on the cutting edge of Dental Implant treatment and technology.
Dr. Kochevar enjoys caring for the Longmont community in his family dentistry office but he is also passionate about continuing to serve the underserved population through his involvement with the Colorado Mission of Mercy, and has traveled as far away as Nicaragua and more recently to Honduras, with the Cape Cares program, to provide much-needed dental care for the underserved population in those areas
Dr. Kochevar is passionate about helping you attain your dental health goals and giving you the highest quality of dental care in a comfortable, friendly environment.
