The History of Our Practice
Our original office was located in the Candler Building in Downtown Atlanta
It was 1952 and Dr. Bruce Jagor was fresh out of dental school at Loyola University of Chicago School of Dentistry when his sister-in-law called. A friend in Atlanta was headed into the Korean conflict and needed someone to watch over his dental practice for a while. Dr. Bruce agreed. He packed up the family and drove the 700 miles from Chicago to Atlanta. What was supposed to be an 18-month favor for a friend turned into a lifelong commitment to the Atlanta community, one that has transcended generations and has lasted for over half a century. In 1965, Dr. Bruce moved into the Aaron Rents building in Buckhead and built a thriving practice. Along the way there were plenty of chances to expand and bring on additional dentists. Each time, he politely refused. “I made a decision very early on, I wanted a small practice that allowed me to focus on each patient and develop deep relationships with families,” Dr. Bruce explains.
Then in 1983, Dr. Bruce made the one and only exception when he invited his son, Tom, to join him. They have worked side-by-side ever since with Tom gradually assuming more and more responsibility for the running of the practice. In 2003, we moved into our current offices in the Medical Quarters building across from Northside Hospital.
Today, Jagor & Jagor continues to be one of the most established and trusted general dentistry practices in Atlanta. The patient relationships we enjoy span multiple generations — some going back as long as half a century. In fact, some of Dr. Bruce’s early pediatric patients have themselves gone on to become dentists, inspired by his dedication and compassion.
Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of change — both in technologies and treatments — and we continue to embrace and adopt the very best. The one constant, however, is our dedication to serving the needs of every individual patient — over the years and across the generations.
We Believe in a Few Simple Truths
The practice of dentistry has grown complex over the years. The principals that guide our relationships and growth, however, remain straightforward. We believe education is a core component of who we are. No matter how experienced, there is always more to learn. While we’ve been in practice for more than 50 years, we are continually studying the latest techniques and embracing new technologies.
We believe in practicing conservative dentistry. As such, our patients drive the decision as to which procedures are used and the course of treatment that is pursued.
We believe in the reassuring power of human compassion. So every procedure, even the most basic, is carried out with the utmost care and gentleness.
We believe that a brief but sincere conversation between dentist and patient can provide more comfort and reassurance than all the literature contained in all the informational pamphlets.
We believe that our success is not measured by the number of our patients but by their loyalty. We intentionally keep our patient load manageable, even at the expense of our bottom line. As a result, we spend more quality time with each patient and understand their individual needs; we are better able to stay on schedule; and our office feels more like an intimate family setting and less like a business.
