Welcome to Jagor & Jagor DDS

Selecting the right dentist for your family comes down to a matter of trust. Pure and simple. At Jagor & Jagor we’ve spent the better part of half a century developing deep trust with our patients; so much so, that our family ties here in Atlanta span generations. Our dedication to cultivating those relationships has led us to create a unique dental practice that provides a level of comfort and a degree of experience that is, in itself, remarkable.

We hope you enjoy your virtual visit to our office but can assure you that it’s nothing like the real thing.

“I can honestly say I’ve been blessed to do what I love for more than 50 years. I am as excited to get to work today as I was when I first opened the practice in 1952. Part of it is the thrill of being able to learn something new everyday — whether it is the latest dental procedure or that the one of my patients has just become a great grandmother. I’m happy to have handed the day-to-day management of the practice over to my son and genuinely enjoy working with him as well as the rest of the staff here. When I’m not working you can bet that I’m either on the golf course, in the garden, or travelling. I grew up in Chicago and graduated from Loyola University (B.S. and DDS), but for more than 50 years, I’ve called Atlanta home.”

“For me, Jagor & Jagor is the ultimate family business and not just because I have the pleasure of working with my dad. Take a look at our patients and you’ll see two, three, sometimes four generations. These are families who have grown up right here in front of our eyes. They’ve trusted us with a lot more than their teeth. So we do everything we can to honor and repay that trust. For example, our commitment to continuing education. In 2008, I earned a master’s certification from the Academy of General Dentistry, a level of learning that less than one half of 1% of all general dentists attain. I also remain very active on the executive level of the Northern District Dental Society and the Georgia Dental Association.”

Ric Majeska DDS

“After graduating from the Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I moved to Atlanta and have practiced dentistry locally since 1977. One of the best parts of my practice is the opportunity to be a true neighborhood dentist for the people of Brookhaven. My wife JoAnne and I have lived in Brookhaven for over 30 years. We’ve watched our two sons grow up here and graduate from Marist. We are members of Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church, as well as, The Brittany Swim and Tennis Club where you can catch Tom and I playing tennis on the weekends. I also enjoy being active, playing tennis, scuba diving, and skiing. I'm an avid sports fan and have worked for many years as a radio and TV statistician for many local sporting events, including the Atlanta Hawks, Braves, Falcons, and the 1996 Summer Olympics. Professionally, I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Georgia Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and I also volunteer at the Ben Massell Dental Clinic. Working with Tom, his dad and the family of talented and caring professionals here is truly a pleasure.”

“After attending Cretin Military Academy in St. Paul, Minnesota and St. Joseph’s Franciscan Seminary in Chicago, Illinois, I received my B.S. and D.D.S. degrees from the University of Minnesota. After completing active duty in the Army in Turkey and California, I started practicing dentistry in Atlanta(bought the first dental practice started in Buckhead from Dr. Ben Jones) in 1967.

I moved my practice to Sandy Springs in 1971 where I practiced to the present time. I am married to Katie Brinkman, and have a married son Dr. William T. Brinkman, a practicing cardiothoracic surgeon at Baylor Health, and three grandchildren, living in Dallas.

I have a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry 1984, a life member of the American Dental Association, the Georgia Dental Association, the Northern District Dental Association and Colonel in the U. S. Army Reserve.

Having been a member of the Huntcliff HOA since 1978, a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Serra International, Order of the Holy Sepulchre, Patron of the High Museum, Patron of the Atlanta Ballet and Member of the Cherokee Town & Country Club, I also enjoy golf, reading and travel.”

I appreciate the excellent professional working environment of Jagor & Jagor to continue my life long passion of dentistry”

Jessica Dale RDH

“Before I joined Jagor & Jagor I was a patient. In fact, our whole family, my husband and his mother have been patients now for over 50 years! With that kind of history it felt right to become part of Dr. Bruce’s and Dr. Tom’s family dentistry team. Although I’m originally from Rochester, New Hampshire, I am proud to say I’ve been a Georgian since 1975, leaving only briefly to live in Pennsylvania with my parents and sister. Although Pennsylvania was beautiful, I still couldn’t stay away from Georgia, and relocated back here in 1996. My husband, Chip is an astronomer at Emory University and an Atlanta native. He has been a patient of the practice since childhood. Besides dentistry, I enjoy gardening, walks in my local park, and especially cooking. All of this only when my two young children Joey and Emma allow the time.”

Renee Cannady, RDH

Renee is the newest addition to our practice. We welcomed this energetic Hygienist in 2017. She is an Atlanta native and comes to us top of her class, graduating from Central Georgia Technical College where she was awarded the Sigma Phi Alpha Honor Society award. Renee is very passionate about oral hygiene and the dentistry profession. She has been in the dental field for over ten years. Her enthusiasm and desire to treat patients is something you will feel right away when meeting her. In her spare time she enjoys cooking and traveling with her family to the beach, weekends at the lake and an occasional snowboarding trip to the mountains.

Charlotte Wilson

“I joined Jagor & Jagor in 2006 as the dental assistant for Dr. Tom, although I occasionally help Dr. Bruce as well. What a lot of newer patients may not realize is just how passionate these two remarkable dentists are; not just about their work but about their patients. ‘Course, after several years you can’t help but notice. That passion, in turn, sets the tone for the whole office. It’s one of the reasons I’m so committed to continuing education, specifically the Hinman Dental Society’s Continuing Education Program. I also have a thing for dogs. I put in a lot of hours each year at Paws Atlanta, advocating for stray dogs and even adopting a pair. I believe animals like dogs and horses can teach us so much about healing and helping ourselves. Additionally, I am fascinated by herbal medicines and remedies and even traveled to Crete twice to study the ancient Minoan culture of herbs. Not surprisingly, I also love a good mystery.”

Bart Mitchell

“As a dental assistant here at Jagor & Jagor since April of ’07, I primarily work with Dr. Bruce. I “greet and seat” folks and then assist Dr. Bruce during dental procedures. This includes sterilizing instruments, making dental impressions and molds, requesting lab work, making sure the examination rooms are stocked and prepped. The best part of my job is what goes on in between — interacting with patients, the dentists, and the rest of the staff here. It’s such a warm place, filled with teamwork and a heavy dose of humor. There is always something new going on; whether it’s a unique procedure, another learning opportunity, or seeing a face I haven’t seen in a while. The atmosphere really rubs off on the patients as well; you can sense it as soon as they walk in to the exam room. They are relaxed and comfortable. It’s not your typical trip to the dentist. Like most everyone else here, I am a native Atlantan and a Georgia Bulldog. Between my church and my chores around the house, I keep pretty busy. If I have a spare moment, I love to paint.”

Susan Schmudde

“It’s nice to be part of a dental practice that has such long roots in the local community. Dr. Tom, his dad and Dr. Majeska all have such a great history of dental care — it’s great to be part of their professional family. I’ve been working as a Certified Dental Assistant for the past twenty years and with Dr. Majeska for quite a while now. I was born in South Bend Indiana, but because my father was an FBI Agent, his duty assignments required our family — my mom, older brother, two sisters and myself — to move around the country. First to Little Rock Arkansas, then to New Orleans, and then eventually to Atlanta where I graduated from Sequoyah High School in Chamblee. After graduating high school I tried working in a variety of retail sales jobs before deciding that the medical or dental field would be the best bet to do something rewarding and interesting. In 1979 I became a graduate of the Atlanta College of Medical and Dental Assisting. Today, my husband Glenn and I, together with Carmelita “the wonder dog” live in the nearby Indian Hills subdivision of Marietta. When I’m not working, I enjoy gardening, decorating our home, as well as hiking and sailing with my husband.”

Peyton Wright

“I joined Dr. Bruce and Dr. Tom April 18th, 1988 as a dental assistant and assumed my current position at the front desk in 1998. I love my co-workers, more importantly I truly enjoy supporting and encouraging our patients. As a native Atlantan (I’m a Grady baby!) I like knowing that I’m helping my community; and that’s really a big part of what we do here at Jagor & Jagor. They care about each and every patient. They give you all the options and let you decide. Our patients really are partners in their own care. I think that says a lot about who Dr. Bruce and Dr. Tom are as people. As for me, I love to bake, sew, travel and sing. Currently I am studying Portuguese and Spanish in my pursuit to become a polyglot”

Robin Shelton

“I help run the front office; scheduling and confirming appointments, checking patients in and out, following up with insurance companies. I guess you could say I’m one of the babies of the practice, having only been here since July of 2007. But it didn’t take long to understand that this truly is a “family” practice, in every sense of the word. Some patients have been coming here for more than 50 years. That makes for a number of very big family trees, with very deep roots. In this day and age, that’s pretty unusual. Like a lot of the staff here, I’m an Atlanta native, a 1977 graduate of Cross Keys High School. I love animals, all kinds of music, theater (Wicked was awesome!), and even NASCAR (yes, I am a Jeff Gordon fan). My daughter, Courtney, is 20. And my cats, Coco and Channel, are bossy, but I love them all.”
