Jeffrey K. Hosford, DDS
Dr. Hosford comes from generations of native Atlantans. His grandfather owned a chicken hatchery next to the old Rich’s (Macy’s) in downtown Atlanta and shipped out millions of baby chicks every month! Dr. Hosford graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology and a minor in Engineering. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the Emory University School of Dentistry and continued after graduation as a clinical instructor in the operative department of the dental school. He is a career-long member of both the American Dental Association and the Georgia Dental Association.
Dr. Hosford has two children, Eric and Micah. He applies his engineering background and his artistic talents – passed down from his mother, an accomplished artist – to his dentistry for the benefit of his patients. He takes pride in seeing the delighted expressions and smiles on his patients’ faces after their restorations are complete. He welcomes new patients to the practice and looks forward to teaming with you to achieve your desired outcome.
In his free time, Dr. Hosford enjoys blending his talents in the arts and sciences through activities such as gardening, fishing, sculpting, and making jewelry. Balancing these activities with exercise to promote a healthy lifestyle is his passion.
Carol A. Karafotias, DDS
Dr. Karafotias is a native Atlantan and graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Science degree and with a Doctor of Dental Surgery. She received the annual award given to only one graduating senior at Emory University by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons for outstanding achievements in undergraduate study and clinical training in this specialized area of dental education. She is a career-long member of the American Dental Association and the Georgia Dental Association.
Helping patients improve their self-confidence and creating beautiful smiles makes Dr. Karafotias extremely happy, and she takes pride in her work. She truly appreciates the fact that her patients place their trust in her professional opinion and years of clinical experience; they continue to refer their friends and family to the practice.
Dr. Karafotias has two children, Michael and Lesa, who both live in the Atlanta area. She enjoys an active lifestyle that includes exercise, running, hiking, and camping. Her gift of creativity and thinking outside the box shines in her joy for puzzles, and this gift in turn serves as a plus in dentistry to create a winning smile for her patients.
