Dr. Kragor was born into a military family who eventually settled in Fayetteville, GA, where he was raised and graduated from Starr’s Mill High School. He then attended the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS) where he excelled, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, graduating Magna Cum Laude with High Honors in 2008. While in Athens, he discovered his passion for the fields of dentistry and Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery.
He then made the move to Augusta, GA, where he attended dental school at the Medical College of Georgia College of Dentistry. Dr. Kragor graduated near the top of his class, earning his Dental Medical Doctorate (DMD) in 2012, and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honors fraternity. During his time in dental school, he received multiple honors and awards, and was a member of the Admissions Committee for three of those years. Interestingly, while developing his passion for Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Kragor actually spent some of his free time shadowing one of the Atlanta Oral and Facial Surgery practices, almost 10 years before knowing he would be joining the practice himself.
Dr. Kragor then moved to Jacksonville, FL to complete a six-year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the University of Florida, Jacksonville. During his time in there, he completed his formal medical schooling to earn his Medical Doctorate degree (MD,) completed a year of General Surgery Internship, and served as Chief Resident on the Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery service. One of his passions has always been teaching, and he was honored to receive the prestigious Best Resident Teacher Award upon his graduation. Throughout his residency, Dr. Kragor was trained in a broad scope of Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery, and loved the challenges presented by such a wide array of complex patients and surgeries. He has received his certification in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS,) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS,) Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS,) and Basic Life Support (BLS.)
Dr. Kragor was thrilled to be returning home to Georgia to join the Atlanta Oral and Facial Surgery team. He currently lives in Canton, GA. He enjoys almost any outdoor activity, including archery hunting, fishing, tennis, golf, biking, and running. He enjoys time spent with family and friends, and has an identical twin brother, Andy, in the Canton area, who is an orthodontist. Also, he thoroughly enjoys cooking, and is always looking for a new restaurant to try.
Dr. Kragor is a caring and passionate surgeon, who always strives to treat his patients like family, and to create a comfortable, memorable, and positive surgical experience.
