While in dental school, Dr, Contractor had the honor of being selected as the coordinator for the Student Health Action Coalition at UNC. Dr. Contractor, with three other classmates, ran a dental clinic which provided dental care to families of Orange County, NC whom otherwise could not afford such services.

While at UNC, he also took advantage of externships offered to him. Dr. Contractor participated in rotations at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, NC, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, PA and the Royal Melbourne Dental hospital in Melbourne, Australia.
After dental school, Dr. Contractor completed two boards that made him eligible to practice dentistry in most of the southeastern states. Soon after graduation, Dr. Contractor married and moved to Cleveland, TN. While in Cleveland, TN, he practiced in a Public Health setting. He treated all age groups and provided high quality care to a population that could least afford it. Three years later, he joined a family practice in Cartersville, GA.
Finally, in 2009, his dream of having his own practice became a reality. “My team and I specialize in high quality and compassionate care, giving you and your family a safer and more comfortable experience. We have invested in the latest dental technology, like digital x-rays that reduce your exposure to radiation. My goal is to become knowledgeable and proactive in each of my patients’ oral health.”
In his spare time, Dr. Contractor enjoys spending time with his wife and son. They can usually be spotted at the tennis courts. Each month he volunteers at Ben Massell Dental Clinic where he provides free dental care to patients in need. He also enjoys travel and trying new local restaurants.
