Dr. Ambre Kragor grew up in Seattle, Washington in the Pacific Northwest. It was there she earned her BA at the University of Washington, completing her four years of undergraduate education with honors studying the Comparative History of Ideas. She continued her graduate education with four more years at the University of Washington School of Dentistry to earn her DDS, finishing in the top of her class. She was selected to attend the University of Michigan three year advanced specialty program where she earned her MS in Orthodontics. It was at the University of Michigan where she met her husband Dr. Andy Kragor, and then moved to the beautiful state of Georgia to start her career.
Dr. Ambre Kragor emphasizes creating gorgeous smiles while balancing facial profiles and aiding in craniofacial growth and development. Her passion includes not only traditional orthodontics, but also treating patients with craniofacial syndromes such as cleft lip and or palate. She volunteers her time at the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (CHOA) when she is not in the office. She focuses her care not only on the outcomes of treatment, but also on the journey—making every experience with her patients fun, exciting, and memorable. Outside of work, she enjoys photography, reading, hiking, and painting. She is passionate about her patients, and enjoys spending time volunteering in the community to grow her patient family. She is kind, quiet, but has a heart of gold. She would do anything to help anyone if she could. She loves her husband and her two children, Rhett and Claire. They are the light of her life, and fill her time outside of the office with laughs and cuddles.
Dr. Andy Kragor is a Georgia native. He has an identical twin brother, who is also in the dental field practicing as an oral surgeon. He grew up in Fayetteville, GA. He completed four years of undergrad and received his BS at the University of Georgia, studying Biochemistry and graduating with honors. He went on to an additional four years of dental graduate education at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, where he graduated in the top of his class and earned his DDS. After this, he continued with three more years of advanced specialty training at the University of Michigan obtaining a MS in Orthodontics. Upon graduation, he moved to Georgia to be closer to home and start his family with his wife, Dr. Ambre Kragor.
He met Dr. Ambre while he was in residency, their relationship started as a friendship and quickly advanced to life-long partners in crime. They later married in his parents back yard, here in Georgia. His extensive education stems from his passions and desires to provide his patients with the highest level of excellence in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. He strives to create beautiful smiles while making sure his patients have a fun atmosphere in the process. He is the charismatic, outgoing doctor of the two, and really knows how to tease patients in the office. In his (little) free time, Dr. Kragor enjoys spending time with his wife, children Rhett and Claire, family, and friends. He will never pass up an opportunity to go hunting or bass fishing. He strives to be active in his community, hopes to coach a baseball team soon, and loves being outdoors. He is a diehard Georgia Dawgs and Denver Broncos fan. His children Rhett and Claire have no choice but to cheer these two teams too!
