James Gray, DMD

Dr. Gray considers it a great privilege to have treated thousands of local residents and is particularly proud to have provided treatment for the families of over 30 local dentists. Following a major in biology, a minor in chemistry, Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, and his two-year residency in orthodontics, Dr. Gray began his exclusive practice in 1981. He established his practice in Roswell in 1983.

Dr. Gray has pioneered the use of mini-implants in orthodontics and has added to the orthodontic literature with articles published in the Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics. He has served as a consultant to the editors of both of these journals in the area of implants for orthodontic purposes. He has current lectures on implant uses in orthodontics, functional occlusion and periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics.

Outside the Office

Dr. Gray is committed to the community, so you may very well see Dr. Gray and his family about town, helping with local activities. Dr. Gray is proud of his long-time association with the Roswell Rotary Club and the good deeds provided by this community service organization. He and his children, Blane and Victoria, and wife, Angela, have been involved in the local schools and culture. They are members of Roswell United Methodist Church and they, of course, reside in Roswell.

Dr. Gray has a passion for bareboat sailing and has sailed in areas of Florida, the Caribbean, Chesapeake Bay, and the Pacific Northwest. In his younger, more nimble days, tennis was a favorite recreation that led to six visits to ALTA City Finals. Snow skiing is also one of his favorite activities and Steamboat Springs and Vail are two of his favorite locations. A good golf game still eludes him, though he can occasionally be seen hacking up the local courses. Braves baseball and Florida football are always a good topic of conversation with Dr. Gray, as is sport shooting. His unfulfilled side wishes he could play a musical instrument, sculpt, and be fluent in a foreign language.
