John Kramer, D.D.S has been in the dental field for over 12 years. A veteran, Dr. Kramer started as a dental lab technician in the United States Air Force, fabricating the veneers, crowns, and dentures for soldiers. Focusing on surgical wisdom teeth extractions while in dental school at the University of Maryland, he developed a passion for the surgical field. Continuing in highly skilled surgical training, Dr. Kramer has built a reputation as one of the premier surgical dentists in town. Dr. Kramer practices dentistry as an art, not just a profession. He has the discerning eye of a doctor and the meticulous technique of an artist. His cosmetic and veneer cases are a testament to his eye for detail.

Dr. Kramer is a skilled implantologist and has taught other dentists all around the country how to perform these procedures. For the last year, Dr. Kramer has solely focused on improving the quality of life for his patients through oral surgery and implants and is so excited to bring his expertise to the Colorado Springs area. In his spare time, Dr. Kramer enjoys the mountains with his wife Courtney and their two children, Austin and Aspen.


Originally from Fremont, California, Dr. Jolee Espinosa moved to Denver to pursue her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at Regis University. After graduating, she moved back home to work at a Biotechnology company while shadowing a dentist (who is also a long-time family friend and mentor). After a few years, she was accepted to Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska, where she spent four years honing her skills in dentistry. During her time in Nebraska, she coordinated with local health fair organizers for Creighton dental students to provide free dental screenings in the Omaha communities that had limited access to dental services.

After graduating, her love for the mountains and Colorado-Native boyfriend (now Fiancé) convinced her to move back to Colorado. After careful consideration of location and practices to join, Dr. Espinosa chose Bright Dentistry due to their modern dental facility and patient-oriented staff.

“I flew in to shadow one weekend while also looking for apartments with my Fiancé. After spending some time with Dr. Kramer and his staff, I knew in my gut as I flew back to Nebraska that this was a practice that truly cared for its patients. There was no room for the you-need-a-small-filling-but-instead-lets-do-a-whole-crown-to-make-money tactic that worried me about bigger corporate dental practices. I really just want to provide individualized dental care in an inclusive and comfortable environment, and I strive to be the dentist that patients love and trust.”

In her spare time, Dr. Espinosa enjoys baking various sugary treats to satisfy her huge sweet tooth, discovering new crafty projects on Pinterest, exploring local shops around Colorado Springs with her fiancé, and watching her favorite show Friends on repeat.
