Get to know Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. Christopher H. Kragor, who serves patients throughout the State of Georgia.
Recognized as a caring and passionate oral & maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Kragor is affiliated with Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery, practicing out of the Calhoun and Canton offices. He always strives to treat his patients like family and to create a comfortable, memorable, and positive surgical experience.
The doctor was born into a military family who eventually settled in Fayetteville, Georgia, where he was raised and graduated from Starr’s Mill High School. He then attended the University of Georgia where he excelled, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, graduating Magna Cum Laude with High Honors in 2008. While there, he discovered his passion for the fields of dentistry and oral & maxillofacial surgery.
Subsequently, he moved to Augusta where he attended dental school at the Medical College of Georgia College of Dentistry. He graduated near the top of his class, earning his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree 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.
Coincidentally, while developing his passion for oral & maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Kragor actually spent some of his free time shadowing one of the Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery practices, almost 10 years before he would join the practice himself.
Thereafter, his educational journey took him to Jacksonville, Florida, where he completed a six-year residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Florida, Jacksonville. During his time there, he completed his formal medical schooling to earn his medical degree, completed his internship, and served as Chief Resident on the oral & maxillofacial surgery service.
One of Dr. Kragor’s passions has always been teaching, and he was honored to receive the prestigious Best Resident Teacher Award upon his graduation. Throughout his residency, he 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.
Distinguished as a Fellow of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, he is a board-certified Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. In addition, 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).
Oral and maxillofacial surgery specializes in surgery of the face, mouth, and jaws. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dental specialists who treat conditions, defects, injuries, and esthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws, and face. Their training involves a four-year graduate degree in dentistry and the completion of a minimum four-year hospital surgical residency program.
On a more personal note, Dr. Kragor currently resides in Canton and enjoys almost any outdoor activity, including archery, hunting, fishing, tennis, golf, biking, and running. He also loves spending time 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.
