Meet Dr. Hank Bradford

Dr. Hank Bradford is an artist and engineer at heart. In fact, he holds a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from Vanderbilt University. But more than anything, he dreamed of becoming a sculptor, and endodontics has fulfilled that dream. “Endodontics is very tactile…it is three dimensional in your mind when you are instrumenting,” says Dr. Bradford. “You can feel the curves of the canals. It really is like a sculpture.”

Our patients appreciate his passion for his work because that passion manifests in perfectionism. Every root canal he performs is as important to him as the first one he ever did – and he has performed thousands.

“When I was looking for my new office site. I discovered that my great, great, great grandfather, William Marion Johnston, was laid to rest in the cemetery on Providence Road, only a half mile from my office. My other great, great, great grandfather, James Power, is buried only a few miles from my home at Paper Mill Road Baptist Church. Growing up here as a child, I had no idea that Johnson Ferry Road and Powers Ferry Road were named after my ancestors. A post office mistake dropped the “t” in his name. My family first came to Cobb County (Marietta) back in 1835.”– Dr. Hank Bradford
